  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Cheap. 1 bed made for 4 guests. But 3 beds in room. Only 2 pillows, 2 Towells, 2 blankets. Stank of smoke. Blanket had cigarette holes. Minimal heating - 1 heater didn’t work. The other was a small fan screwed to wall that couldn’t be moved to point anywhere other than at the desk.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very cheap price. In the suburbs of Christchurch. A small supermarket and fish and chips shop located just in front which is very convenient. The hostel has seen better days. Mattress was in a bad state and the sheets smelled strongly. Wifi worked fast and the TV has plenty of channels. Overall not great.
