    We loved everything about Urbanz. Would totally return to this hostel again. So good to be Central city but enjoy breakfast overlooking the skate/pump track. A big complex but had the personal feel with great reception staff. So appreciated the Complimentary parking tickets.

    No issues except unable to use a microwave or jug in the kitchen after 12pm so not so user friendly for those who want to experience Christchurch night life.

    Pros 1. Great location. 2. Staff were helpful. They went the extra mile to try and help me find lost property event though I had left the country. 3. Stayed in double room which was spartan but affordable. 4. Kitchen is large, well equipped. 5. Good WiFi. 6. Parking options. Cons 1. Kitchen could be cleaner. 2. Detracting from the experiance, was a person (a refugee I think) who was brushing his teeth in the kitchen. 3. Floors in the common areas creek easily. I would come back in the future.

    Location is great! However the room smell was a bit weird, was probably the carpet. In the middle of the night/early morning, there would be trucks next to the building emptying out glass bottles or trash, had a hard time sleeping. The bathrooms and showers are clean which was very nice!

    The rooms get really hot and with just small windows there is not enough air to cool them down.

    Was actually quite unclean upon checking in the toilet facilities were uncomfortable, there was no ventilation, heating or cooling, it was overall uncomfortable i wont be coming back here but appreciate the service from reception pricing was a bit high for the room we got I could have gotten way cheaper for something far better so I guess this company is just ripping people off
