- “ Very basic, low value for money, felt a bit like handling cattle. I have seen much better hostels for the same money, sorry. ”

- “ I stayed in the 8-bed dorm next to the kitchen. They put a 9th person on an inflatable mattress on the floor, so the room was extremely crowded. If you want to sleep, request a different room, as the heavy fire door that is just outside the dorm slams every 15 seconds until 4AM. It sounds like a WWE match in the hall-extremely noisy! Cleaning and dishwashing is done by guests, so it was pretty gross most of the time. No lockers provided. Close to beach and free WIFI at the library. ”

- “ Rooms were clean but very bare. A lot of noise from outside until late at night. Also, kitchen was full of beer drinkers and difficult to use. ”

“ If you don't mind taking the bus out to the burbs, it's great. The beach is absolutely gorgeous! Would go back if I came back to Christchurch. Take two city buses, not the shuttle from the airport. Save yourself $28!! Take one bus to the city centre and then 5 or 40 to the backpackers. It stops right across the street. The people there are great! Thanks to everybody! ”
thanks for your comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay in the burb!
