I stayed for a week at Around The World Hostel in Christchurch this month (April, 2014) and was impressed with the friendly, professional staff and the overall high standards of this hostel. One key to their success is their ZERO TOLERANCE policy for drunkenness in the hostel. I have stayed in countless travellers' hostels and seen numerous good hostels go down the drain due to too much boozing and resulting noise, guest abuse, and hostel damage. You can have a drink here at Around The World, certainly, but you must keep your drinking under reasonable control. Bonuses here include free Wi-Fi, free tea and coffee, free movies and free local phone calls. Very few hostels anywhere on Earth can equal this, and very few can equal the friendliness, cleanliness, and professionalism of this hostel. Well Done, Around The World; no wonder this hostel wins awards.
