    This was a great hostel close to the town center. There is a lot of partying going on, so consider that if you are not into that sort of thing. The rooms are standard but very clean and the kitchens and bathrooms are nice.

    Cool place. Make sure to use the quieter, cleaner kitchen upstairs. I had to wait for the loo a few times otherwise no complaints.

    This was our first hostel in New Zealand and it was lovely. Clean throughout the hostel, friendly staff, big kitchen, comfy beds and decent floor space in rooms, powerful and large showers, lovely homemade bread for breakfast. We only stayed one night and was jet lagged from our flight from Santiago so weren’t in a very sociable mood, but there seemed to be a good vibe and decent communal areas. Staff provide very helpful info and are chatty and friendly

    Good little hostel with clean facilities and AMAZING morning bread. There were a lot of long termers staying so that made it hard to make friends as everyone knew each other already. Overall good place to be in Christchurch, about 25minute walk from the city centre.

    Location was good, but the level of cleanliness let this place down. The shower was mouldy, toilet filthy and kitchen needed a good clean. Wouldn’t stay here again.

    Hostel had good facilities although the shared bathrooms were needing a clean. Main let down was the location right next to a really noisy main road so didn't get much of a rest. Not the end of the world but we were using the hostel as a stop over between long drives so it was disappointing.

    This was a party hostel. A lot of the people, including the staff, were smoking weed. Which meant that there was never anyone on reception and the whole hostel was filthy. We were woken up several times in the night, so would not recommend staying hear if you want a good night sleep. Also we found hairs in the breakfast bread. So if you want to smoke weed in a filthy hostel and eat hairy bread stay here, if not go somewhere else.
