Stayed here for four days over Feb in the dorms. Has an average location and high price (but most accommodation does due to effects of earthquake of availability of places), and there were much better places to stay (that I had stayed prior to this). Its is a long walk from town down a horrible road, atleast there is a supermarket and subway nearby. The facilites are Ok, the kitchen was clean and bathrooms good...however the TV/ Lounge was ridiculous small and cramped adn the room I had only had 2 power points for 4 people AND was one of 3 rooms right next to kitchen which becomes the social place every night so was laughing, swearing, drinking etc till 3 am EACH NIGHT and the people in my room couldn't sleep. Would think management would have done something about this as a few people complained or at least asked them to move to another area but no.... For the price you pay there are much better places where you can get a better sleep and not be so isolated....just be sure to book ahead as the good places book out fast (hence why the Old countryhouse seems to not be full as often).
