About YHA Christchurch - Rolleston House

Christchurch is the largest city and gateway to the South Island. It is currently recovering from the 2010/2011 earthquakes. This has revealed the enterprise and dynamism of its people. Visit pop up malls, markets and thriving regeneration projects and suburbs, such as Addington. A full range of activities and tours is still available close to the city. Every adventurous traveller should visit!

For those seeking adrenalin, try paragliding, white water rafting, sky diving and jet boating. We are able to assist you with all landline travel and activity bookings at no extra charge. Lyttelton, Akaroa and Banks Peninsula cruises are available. For unsurpassed views of the city and the Southern Alps, take No. 28 bus from the Lichfield Street Bus Station and head up the Christchurch Gondola. Situated on the highest point of the Port Hills, you can gaze over the extinct volcano that is Lyttelton Harbour or look to the Kaikoura Mountains in the north.

YHA New Zealand is a non-profit membership organization.

Accommodation Information

YHA Rolleston House was originally built as a boarding hostel for the University. Most bedrooms are located on the first floor, and all facilities can be found on the ground floor (kitchen, lounge, bathrooms etc.)
We are a heritage listed building and although we do not have full bathroom facilities on the first floor, the building makes up for this with her character and charm.
