Positive Reviews

Entertainment and facilities

The hostel offers lots of entertainment for guests, with a communal lounge that offers Sky TV, free-to-use computers, board games and a pool table. The hostel is also complete with facilities that ensure convenience, such as a large kitchen where guests can prepare their own meals – ideal for those travelling on a budget. The complimentary Wi-Fi works well.

Convenient location

The hostel is well located in the heart of Christchurch, just a few blocks from Cathedral Square. Guests find the situation very convenient for exploring on foot, as most major attractions are within roughly 20 minutes’ walk.

Clean well-appointed rooms

Dormitory rooms at this hostel receive high praise for the excellent standard of cleanliness, and the inclusion of useful facilities such as individual lockers and plugs beside every bed. Guests say the lockers are very spacious, which is a significant bonus as it means all their belongings can be stored securely.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing atmosphere

Guests find that, despite the various communal facilities, the atmosphere in the hostel lacks a little in terms of meeting new people and socialising with other travellers. According to travellers, this is due in part to the many long-term guests staying in the hostel.

No elevator access

There is no elevator in the hostel, which some guests staying on upper floors find an inconvenience.
