Hostelworld says

Jailhouse Accommodation was rated #1 in New Zealand and Oceania at the 2009 and 2013 Hoscars, and it's not hard to see why. This quirky, clean, comfortable and quiet hostel is set in a historic former jail. It's located about 20 minutes' walk from the Arts Centre, Christchurch Art Gallery, Canterbury Museum and the Botanic Gardens and is surrounded by a variety of bars and cafes. We like their friendly and very helpful staff, who have a great knowledge of the area.

    Fantastic, friendly staff. Facilities were 10/10. Cinema AND Netflix room, fully equipped kitchen with all the equipment you could need. Staff always willing to help with directions etc. Location is a little way away from the city centre but the character of the old building really makes up for this. 100% would stay again.
