I have been here for my holiday on July 2013. The first thing is this one is far away from town. I need to spend $30 for the taxi fees, because I don't have many experience for bus in Christchurch. Second, I am an international traveler so my English is not very good. When the staff talk to me, I can not hear properly after a tired day. But , they did not understand that. They are not friendly to me. Third, the bus is outside the hostel so it is convenient for you to go to Town or Airport. However, the bus timetable is not very flexible. That time, I need to go to the airport at 5:00 in the morning, but they don't have any bus early in the morning. Once again, I need to spend $30 to go to the airport. The good thing of this hotel is the room is big and clean with reasonable price. The hostel also has kitchen for anyone who want to cook. Not highly recommend for anyone who want to live near town and have early flight at the morning but want to save transportation fees.
