We stayed for the last night of our honeymoon in Christchurch at the YMCA!! Following the earthquake we found that most of the area in Central CHCH is still closed off so there are not many hotels to choose from if you don't have a car.
Saying that we had a very pleasant stay, the room was clean and the facilities were good. Despite having a shared bathroom I had a vision of fighting for the shower in the morning but even this was fine.
The location is very good, right next to the botanical gardens and Canterbury museum and just a short walk to the rest of town.
Obviously being a hostel it is a bit noisy and full of excited travellers but nothing to put us off staying here.
