Liked: Das Jailhouse ist mit das beste Hostel in dem ich bisher gewesen bin. Man kann sich vorstellen wie es hier früher mal aussah. Daraus haben sie aber ein super Hostel gemacht. Die Zimmer/zellengröße hat sich nicht geändert, aber das gibt einem den Flair eines Gefängnisses. Damit es aber ein schönes Erlebnis bleibt geben sich die Mitarbeiter sehr viel Mühe um den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Man hat 2 Bettdecken + eine Wärmflasche, damit einem warm bleibt, denn die dicken Gefängnismauern sind natürlich etwas kalt. Die Küche ist sehr groß und wird 3 mal am Tag gesäubert. Genau wie die duschen und WCs. Dazu ein riesiger Kinoraum mit Beamer und Netflix Zugang. Also alle Filme die man schauen möchte. 500mb Internet sind auch inklusive. Dazu echt nette Mitarbeiter die einem bei jeder Frage zur Seite stehen. Echt empfehlenswert!

Liked: This is comfortably the best hostel I have stayed in! Great history behind the place and the facilities are great. Plenty of chill out zones, tv room, cinema a nice kitchen and Free wifi which is rare for hostels! We stayed in a 10 bed dorm and were assigned beds, shown to our room and it had a seperate toilet and sink as well!Location is good a short 20 minute walk through the park to the city and close to a bar and food places! We didn't mind the walk at all and would much prefer the hostel location to the centre of Christchurch. Staff were also excellent! Thanks!!

Disliked: Nothing!
