    Great value for money. Plenty of bathrooms, which were always clean

    Walls a bit thin with conversations in next room clearly heard

    Nice rooms with no bunks, warm and cozy and quite spacious for a hostel room. Bathrooms were clean enough. Location is great for botanical gardens.

    Kitchen was quite dirty when I stayed. Guest left their dirty dishes lying around and didn’t wipe down surfaces they’d used. Even in the morning it was still gross. Its a shame because it’s otherwise quite a nice hostel.

    Location was ideal for my visit, staff were very friendly and helpful and my room was comfortable and warm. A great place to stay. I will be back.

    It is an older building which gives it great character but means that sound travels through the walls. Ear plugs were for sale though

    I arrived very late, in fact early hours of the morning to a very cold Christchurch. The out of hour check in was very simple and they even left the heated blanket on my room which was so special. I was so grateful for that. The property had a good amount of bathrooms, a lovely lounge area and big functional kitchen which was clean. I would most definitely return to this beautiful property with its very kind staff.

    It was a cold in the corridors but other than that lovely.
