    comfortable stay.”
    instead of 4 bedded female room, I was given a 10 bedded female room (reception explained that it's Agoda's wrong info of 4 bedded, however not a problem cos' the room is spacious and comfortable); however, there was a man occupant despite he left later during that midnight.

    Wonderful hostel”
    Pros - parking was great, comfy beds. Showers were massive and plenty of them. Great location. Cons - have to pay for WiFi. As a traveller paying for WiFi is a big shame. Also unable to use kitchen to cook as it was always full. Fridge and freezer were full so couldn't store any food. Had to eat out for the 4 days we were there. I'd stay again as it was cheap for the room we had but cost us more in eating out than if I'd of booked a hotel.

    I stayed in single room during my trip and I really satisfied with this place overall! Actually i didn't expect that much about this place but its location, quality of room and facilities except the fact that there was no free wifi service. It's very near to Botanic Garden and the museum only few mins by walk and also close to city centre by 10mins.

    The deluxe room is great”
    Everything at the YMCA was great! I booked a deluxe room, and asked for a high floor. The staff accomodated my request. The young receptionist with dark hair and big, blue eyes whose name to my regret I didn"t asked, kindly offered me a toothbrush and toothpaste kit when I told her that the airport security trashed my toothpaste. Most kind! The room itself was spotless and had everything I needed.

    Best Shared Toilets Ever”
    Room was large, clean and beds comfy. Shared toilets was absolutely top notch (best seen in my life) and the kitchen was clean and good. Only down side was the not so sound proof walls as we could hear small talking noises from outside the room and each time a door was closed/opened from a nearby room. Location, just next to Botanic Garden and Museum, very convenient to visit.

    Convenient location with everything you need!”
    The hostel is located conveniently within Christchurch city centre, fairly close to supermarkets and convenience stores. Although we arrived fairly late at night and most places were closed. Kitchen has everything you need for cooking and got quite busy. Rooms are a little bit old but clean and comfortable as are the shared bathrooms. Coffee shop and gym downstairs.

    Great location, good people and nice room
    the room is very comfortable for 3 pax by providing 3 single beds in a spacious room. Although toilet is sharing but can be found in between 2 rooms, this really out of my expectation and awesome. Location is very strategic in center of Christchurch and only 15 mins drive to airport.

    Close to Hagley Park, Arts Centre, Art Gallery and CBD all within 8-10 minute slow safe walk. On site there is a Robert Harris Cafe open for breakfast at 06:30 and also a very good Asian restaurant. I was very pleasantly surprised re value for money and would definitely recommend it . Security Cards to lift and floor levels.

    Triple Deluxe Room with Private Bathroom

    No internet and too crowded kitchen”
    Booked a triple deluxe room with private bathroom. Staff are friendly people. We're satisfied with the room, but really wish they'd at least provide free WiFi - c'mon this is YMCA and 2018... Carpark registration should also be simplified. Please just take the car number and not make people fill in forms. The kitchen was too small for the hostel's capacity. Only 2 sinks and 3 stoves means queuing to cook. Dining area was so crammed it's not possible to eat comfortably. Would actually recommend YHA next door instead...
