  • Clean place to stay. Excellent kitchen area with common items like pots and pans. Would stay again if back in NZ.

  • The hostel was not a very welcoming place, to say the least. Probably the worst I have ever stayed in. The rooms were dingy and unclean, without pillow covers. The showers were pretty disgusting, and I didn't even try to use the kitchen. I thought that they would at least have Wifi, but you needed to pay $5 for each 24 hours you wished to use it. It worked well for me as a stopover point in my bus journey, as I was in Christchurch for about 13 hours, but I wouldn't recommend it.

  • I suffered the trouble with an angry guy, claiming about his bed. I think that this behaviour can't be tolerated. If I was the manager, I'd kick him out immediately.

  • Kiwi Basecamp could have cleaner facilities and more stable bunk beds - the upper one is pretty shaky. Otherwise, the location is pretty decent with a 15min walk to the main bus stop and being located within the CBD. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is also a bus shuttle option to the airport for 10 NZD, which is great.
