    Really cool backpackers. Great kitchen facilities. Plenty of individual toilets and showers throughout the hostel (one outside every room pretty much!) and they were clean/modern. Cheap private rooms. Central location. Lots of long-term guests staying here.

    Great place. Really easy to meet people, awesome helpful staff. All the facilities you need to make the most of your stay. A bit of a walk out of the city centre but a bit of exercise never hurt anyone.

    Little bit of a walk into town but overall a great stay. Most comfortable beds I’ve ever stayed in at a hostel, amazing WiFi everywhere, plenty of parking and great kitchen facilities. Got everything you could ever need in Christchurch!

    they have 2 locations, i went to the wrong one unfortunately. but as i had a car, not big deal. place is clean. hot shower. u get your own locker in the kitchen. big kitchen area. has tv common area as well. the kitchen area is the warmest. bed isquite wifi everywhere. my boggest complaint is the blanket. it is way too heavy, feeling my body getting squashed. might be because it is winter time,need thick duvet to keep warm. also the hand basin is the bathroom is tiny.

    Very Good

    Price of this hostel is reasonably priced , however the cleanliness of the toilets and kitchen is poor. Fridges are not well maintained and have clusters of food that are not well labelled - hence they don't get cleaned out after a guest has moved out. Pros: + 15- 20 mins walk to city centre + reasonable price for clean rooms. Cons : - Communal areas are dirty . ie : Dirty fridge and untidy kitchen ; not ideal for people who like to make their own meals. - No Guests allowed after 5 pm

    Not the best hostel in Christchurch. Bathrooms were small and didn't have hooks in showers. A lot of people living there which made for a cliquey atmosphere. Wouldn't stay again with other good options in town.
