    Staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately one of the roommates in our dorm was very conflicted and aggressive, but the staff quickly changed us to another dorm. Otherwise nice place, clean and tidy.

    Three nights ended up in over a week! Came to ChCh to recharge and organize stuff after traveling with a bunch of ppl for a while. The team made it easy for me to feel welcome and wind down! Highly recommended, I’ll be back! Thanks to the whole crew :-)

    It was a good stay for location and price. But there is only one toilet for the whole upstairs floor and there was never any toilet paper?! Painfully basic oversight. Stayed three days//two nights and this was recurring - not a one off!! Also the bed was horribly uncomfortable resulting in poor sleep for me. Staff were really lovely though. But I soooo can’t overlook not sleeping well (bed and noise) and having to search entire hostel for toilet paper every day I stayed there!

    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.

    Perfect location but smelt strongly of smoke and bathrooms were a bit sticky. Good response to questions about booking, and easy to access on late arrival with code.
