My room is close to the main road so it was a bit noisy until around 2am. It was winter and we need to close all the windows for the whole day to keep warm, which made the room a bit smelly. There is one heater in the room, not too cold but not warm enough.The price is good and maybe we couldn't expect too much. The bathroom and the kitchen is clean and tidy. Staff here is very nice.

NEVER AGAIN. DON'T STAY HERE - GO ELSEWHERE! WORST EVER HOSTEL EXPERIENCE! ”
This is the worst hostel i have ever stayed in (50+). #1 - RUDE staff - specifically the receptionist/boss. Very cold, not hospitable or welcoming, very mean, strict about rules and just wants your money. No flexibility e.g. $10 to stay in hostel after checkout time! Extra staff are backpackers working for free (which is now illegal). Saw boss swearing and shouting at workers. #2 - Charge for EVERYTHING - towels, left luggage, key deposit, extra wifi, $5 per unwashed cup /utensil, printing #3 - Poor condition of hostel - it is old, cold, needs a complete refurbishment. #4 - Cameras - You are watched in all social areas - it's uncomfortable - there's no trust! #5 - Ridiculous rules - switch off oven at 9.30pm regardless if you're using it #6 - Lack of value for money - could stay elsewhere for better quality and cheaper #7 Limited reception hours & poor security - when we arrived no one was there & we entered and left without any questions - would be easy to steal!

Internet restricted for 1GB a day but other than that place was clean with nice kitchen and quite comfy beds.

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts, Monika. We have tried offering unlimited internet access, but it means that speeds are reduced because guests tend to watch a lot of videos. Unfortunately, we can only keep speeds high by limiting download volume.

Nice staff but wifi is so limited, 1GB within 1 hour
Reviewed January 17, 2018
Thanks for you review. We have found that unlimited free internet slows down the speed for everybody because everybody is online all the time. Our experience is that people prefer better quality rather than a slow unlimited quantity. We hope you can understand our position.

The location is convenient for taking bus to the airport. You can either walk around 20 minutes to the bus interchange to take buses to other cities or take a short ride to the interchange. You need to walk for quite a while if you need to go to a supermarket, but if you are returning from the bus interchange, there's one there for you to shop before going back to the hostel. The room is clean and tidy. I slept on the upper bed and it was a bit noisy when you turned around.

The value for a private room is cheap. Place is clean but slightly old. You get the value of your money. Location is a bit far from town center. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Sexism”
Room only for women. And no refund. Crazy.
Reviewed March 29, 2017
We reserve one of our dorm rooms for females only as some cultures feel more comfortable with this. All other rooms are mixed male and female. We are sorry if there was any misunderstanding at the time of booking.

around 25 minutes walking to city center/intercity (more if with huge backpack:p), but not very far from Christchurch bus stops actually. Room was nice and spacious. only a few showers available, though no need to wait at all during my stay. Staff at reception when i arrived was really friendly and helpful:) Cheers

Werden beschuldigd van stelen van 6! Eieren terwijl je duidelijk op de camera beelden ziet dat we niks in ons handen hadden. Personeel ging er heel slecht mee om.
Reviewed March 13, 2018
We take guest security seriously. We checked our kitchen camera video record at the request of an upset guest. As you appeared in the video record, you were asked about eggs on behalf of the aggrieved, eggless guest. We apologise if you took this as an accusation. There is certainly no proof that you were involved in an egg heist.
