If you ever wanted to see a prison from the inside, this is the one to be 'imprisoned' in. Great hostel, special atmosphere, cool people and super helpful staff. You actually get to stay in the former cells which have been transformed into cozy rooms with comfortable beds which guarantee a good night's sleep. The kitchen has everything that you could possibly need to cook and bake and make a good traveller's meal. Also, it's one of the cleanest hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff really makes an effort to keep the place nice and make you feel like home. The guys at reception literally have an answer to every question and help to find your way around Christchurch, which can be quite confusing these days with all the ever changing roadblocks. For rainy days there's a big movie collection and a cinema room. All in all, jailhouse is THE place to stay at in Christchurch. Had a great time and definitely coming back.
