Stayed here just one night, a 30 minute walk from where the naked bus drops you off, easy to find as its sign posted as 'historic prison', which is the hostel! Very decent place, has a tv room, a cinema room, male member of staff who checked us in was great, informative even showed us to our room/cell. Not the cheapest hostel, but no where is cheap in Christchurch. Definitely worth a visit as the place has history. Stayed here in winter but you get extra blankets which keeps you warm, stayed in a ten bed dorm which had plenty of room, plugs at every bed. Kitchen was ok. Overall decent place to stay.
