Everything was good. Information, hours for check in and out, equipped kitchen we had dinner there. Close to centre of town, walk distance. Unfortunately on a main street with traffic and very noisy in early morning.

I really enjoyed my stay at YHA Canterbury. The facilities are clean, the rooms are of good size, and the beds are comfy. The hostal is in a great area and the staff are nice. Would have preferred a room away from the street though. It is a little noisy if you are a light sleeper! Just request a room...
