“Great First Place To Stay In NZ”
Reviewed 20 July 2003

This hostel was the first place stayed at having just landed in Christchurch from Australia.

The location is ideal with the main shopping area only a short walk away. It has a cosy lounge area and good kitchen facilities. Only spolit by some travellers who seem to think they've packed their mum with then to do all their tidying up.

The staff are very friendly and will help you with any queries you may have. It does need modernisation of the shower facilities and perhaps a little in some of the rooms. But its kept quite clean by the hard working staff their. Special thank you to Lisa who enhanced my stay by laughing at my terrible jokes.

I liked it so much that at the end of exploring the South Island came back for a few days. Then headed up to Picton to cross to the North Island.

Would have no problem in recommending this place to anyone. Be advised to book as early as possible though to aviod disappointment.
