    Excellent location, beside botanical gardens. Bus to airport a ten minute walk away. Lots of private rooms. Kitchen just a little bit small for such a large hostel. Overnight parking on street outside. Reception very friendly and helpful.

    Like most YHAs, this hostel was clean and convenient. Atmosphere was lacking (as is with most YHAs), so it can be hard to meet people. Rooms are also quite small, but everything is very hygienic and the hostel is located in a central area, which is much better than many of the other options in Christchurch. Not a bad choice!

    I was really impressed with the facilities in this hostel - the kitchens were undoubtedly the best I've ever seen in a hostel, there were large lockers for big rucksacks (bring your own lock), lots of charge points and plenty of toilets/showers. But I was disappointed with the atmosphere and lack of staff interaction with guests. I would probably stay here again as I'm happy in my own company.

    Good central position, giving easy walking access to all Christchurch cultural attractions as well as tranquil areas such as the Botanical Gardens. Information hub just round the corner and regular public transport to outskirts.

    Amazing hostel in the heart of the city! just small stroll to the botanic gardens and art gallery! Beds are pretty comfy and well provided with light and usb outlet! Kitchen is amazing!! I worked in industrial kitchens who not even have the amount of stuff they have to offer! bathrooms are tidy and clean! good waterpressure aswell! Cheap towel and storage service! lovely outdoor area with BBQ and EFTPOS based laundrymachines! Only the vibe is really dead not the place to meat new people...

    Building was cool and the rooms were well conditioned, everything was clean. Location was decent, close to a cute river park and gardens but kinda far from more city central things. Staff was uninterested and grumpy, and I waited for 15 minutes at the desk ringing the bell because I needed my bag to get to the airport and nobody came... finally the receptionist came out to help me but strange that the desk was left unattended for so long. Overall a decent place to stay over for a night or 2
