We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay here. A great location to use as a base to explore Christchurch with a handy little shopping area within a ten minute walk. The hosts are nice and informative. Would stay here again.

Popped by en route from Queenstown to the north island. Least pricey hostel in the area from what I saw. We were greeted by one of the lovely owners who checked us in. The building is a lot bigger than it looks upon first glance. Showers and toilets are nice and clean. Kitchen is well stocked as well. My only...

We were well accomodated for our late arrival and got to a room with the heater already on. The lodge is in a suburban street, perfect for a quiet night with jet lag. Facilities efficient and clean. Corridors do seem to be used as store rooms though.

It was the second place I've stayed in Christchurch (and in New-Zealand), we went there because it was the cheapest and we stayed more than 2 months because it felt like home! Shiona, the manager, is more than lovely, she will make you as comfortable as she can. I had my 30th birthday there, I was sad to get that...

The manager is indeed very friendly. However the hostel is totally a mess. It seems that life stopped 50 years ago for them. Painting is falling off the walls, bed are noisy and not confortable. Bathrooms are scary. No free wifi.

The best thing about this hostel is the manager who goes out of her way to make sure you're loving life. She always made sure I had a bed even when I forgot to book in advance, and she even, on occasions, bakes cakes for the guests. The kindest little Scottish woman I ever did meet.The hostel is clean and...

Based on previous reviews we had read we weren't too sure whether to stay here or not, but as it was the cheapest hostel on offer and we were only there for one night we thought, how bad could it really be?? The hostel is FINE, whilst it is no luxury hotel - for the price you cannot complain. It...

Value stay, good enough to sleep the night through. The location was just ok, no stunning views. The accommodation was very basic and cleaniness was not the best! Hot water in the showers was a plus. Just average, really.

It was really cheap, the beds were comfortable and it was clean. The kitchen is big enough, a little bit dirty but not too bad. The staff was really lovely. Nothing to complain about. A close supermarket, but the city isn't around the corner, we got a car so it wasn't a problem and a bus stop is nearby the...
