  • I really enjoyed this hostel. It's on the Yellow bus line very close to the city; easy to get from/to using public transport from the airport. The place had a really cozy feel and was kept exceptionally clean. The staff was always helpful and friendly. The only negatives were that they didn't have any ovens in the kitchen and the Wi-Fi was horribly slow and often went down.

  • Staff very nice, and it's clean BUT They want you are 100% happy (100%safe, 100%clean, etc.etc.), but if we can be 100% less tired when you wake up... could be great!!! Because of the beds are not fixed, and when the guy under move (or maybe just breathes) you move too... it's the worse night I passed in a hostel in NZ...

  • Definitely one of the nicest hostels on our trip! Facilities were really clean and nice looking, sauna and outdoor hot water tub were great addition and we met really nice people here! Definitely not your party hostel, but ideal just for chillin' out and spending a nice evening with fellow travelers. Walk to Christchurch centre takes 15-20 min. Only minus was that there were just two bathrooms/showers in a house with two 6 people dorms, which makes them very crowded in the morning.
