Welcome to Chester Street Backpackers. We are a small & peaceful Travellers Accommodation House for those that require a warm atmosphere with personal, friendly service. Set in a colourful kiwi villa on a tree lined street. We have been operating for close to 15 years now & know what travellers want! We are OK after the earthquake & its business as usual. Every day Christchurch is getting closer to normality!

Chester St has only 7 rooms so please try & book early. To keep the room prices low, we dont have ensuite rooms, but every room is made up with linen. We can accommodate late arrival travellers. Also available is a selection of budget sleeper vans & cars for sale which have a buy back guarantee. Sure to please!
Prices are per person per night.
