      Escape from Jail House!!”
      This was fun and nice staying with the Jailhouse. It was re-makeup from the old jail facilities but it was bright and clean. No worries it was totally safe. The location was near to any place in Christchurch with in 10 mins drive. The staff was fun and very helpful during our stay.

      Spent a night in the cells”
      I was only staying at this hotel briefly, there was a super shuttle from the airport to the hostel for $25, the hostel staff had sent me some really helpful and accommodating instructions ahead of time to help me find my way inside and to my room late at night (as I was due to arrive at 11pm - didn't make it til after midnight). The hostel was fairly quiet but still a couple of people up and about. The 2 bunk cell I shared was clean, the bed was made up more like a hotel, warm bedding and pillow was super comfy. Once I'd showered and checked out at 10am, the staff were happy for me to mill about until 5pm (the wifi was free, unlimited and great quality). I would definitely recommend this hostel and go again if I was in town. Its a quirky and interesting place to stay and they really do go above and beyond when it comes to comfort, accessibility and little things like the wifi. Vending machine wasn't accepting notes though but reception were happy to change a $5 note for me.

      Quite comfortable and cosy!”
      The Jailhouse may have been a little distance from the Trains Station but great with the bus just there to go to town. Bed very comfortable, facilities good but found the toilet very small and those steps inside the toilet dangerous. Plenty of space otherwise for the showers. Will recommended it and we had a special treatment on the night we stayed with two evacuations due to the November earthquake but was pleased that staff and persons responsable took it seriously and made sure everybody was safe.
