Liked: Cosy and warm, very modern hostel (more like a home than many others I've stayed in). Loved the free vegetables from the garden, as well as the two housecats!

Disliked: Only issues were that there aren't enough bathrooms, frequently had to wait for one to become free. Also noise in the house travels a long way, so we were kept up one night by people constantly going up and down the stairs and closing doors. Might just have been where our room was positioned though.

Liked: This place is amazing and was the best private room of our trip. Free fast WiFi (rare in NZ) helpful staff, close to supermarket and bus stops.

Disliked: The hostel is perfect. Unfortunately Christchurch is being rebuilt slowly therefore I would interconnects a day or two here. Botanical gardens are nice to chill in. We didn't do any but tours offered at hostel.
