Liked: Ok so it was on top of a hill. But it's not so big that it warrants people complaining about it in their comments. Besides there is a bus service that stops right at the door of the hostel.

Disliked: Nothing really. Would be better if the wi-fi was free.

The property's response is

Good evening,

Thank you for your good rating. It is a little problem, our wi-fi is for free i don't know from where did you think is not. When my staff member made your checking he gived you a little paper with the code for the front door and there you coulded see our hostel servises. Again, thank you very much for your nice comment.
Best regards,

Kipps Canterbury

Liked: the staff running this hostel are really helpful and friendly, i think it's run by a family so it's pretty intimate and they are concerned to ensure guests enjoy their stay. the vibe is very much like a comfortable house. the kitchen is spotless, so were my rooms and bathrooms, and there's free tea and coffee. there are nice common spaces; a front tv/lounge room, cosy kitchen, and dining room. i thought it was a really nice hostel.

Disliked: maybe the directions from the coach station aren't that clear?
