Liked: I didn't like anything

Disliked: - Ubicacion muy mala, esta completamente fuera de Christchurch, mas de 30 minutos en bus, muy incomodo. (Lo positivo es que el bus para en la puerta).- No recomiendo un hostel tan alejado, incluso si es un poco mas barato que los demas, uno se gasta la diferencia en el ticket del bus.-Me cargaron, sin avisarme, mi estadia en mi tarjeta de credito porque creian que llegaria luego de las 10 pm (cuando recepcion cierra), pero llegue ahi 10 pm en punto...No es mas amigable que el viajero pague al retirarse en ese caso? -Estaba en el banio de planta baja y me pidieron que me fuera porque lo tenian que limpiar, no podian esperar 5 minutos ?-Por lo demas todo el hostel luce sucio, cuartos y banios, ademas a el cuarto se lo veia descuiado y viejo.-El wifi no funcionaba correctamente. No tuve una buena calidad de descanso en la noche que pase alli.

Liked: It was close to the sea and beach. There was a supermarket fairly near the hostel. You were allowed to drink in the hostel.

Disliked: Kitchen was a bit messy and unorganized. The hostel is also far away from the city center, which is not so bad in the end cause the buses stop right next to the hostel but if you want to be near the center, this is not your hostel. There's no elevator.
