“A nice stay”
Reviewed 25 May 2006

A group of 5 of us recently stayed in Rolleston House for 2 nights. The hostel is really nice and clean and has a great kitchen. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they sell all the basic supplies at the front desk (beans, noodles, water etc). The location is also very good as it is next to the Botanical Gardens and Art Gallery and only a 5 minute walk into the city centre. The only negative point is that the Hostel could do with a lick of paint and the showers are only on the ground floor which means a trek downstairs if you are staying on the first floor. If this isnt going to bother you then you will have a great stay here, and it hasnt put us off booking to stay there again at the end of the month!

Before e-mail and small mobile phones I visited Rollesten House in 91 and 92.
I was made really welcome and helped by staff to find possible employment in local schools. I returned to England with a love for your country which will never go away. The hostel was in a great spot and perfect for the refectory over at the Y. Even caught up with the wizard. Barry Kay. Will have written in the log for both visits

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.
