I really appreciated the somewhat more sedate/mature atmosphere here compared to other hostels I've stayed at. It was in a great location for exploring the park (which I think is the best part of Christchurch at the moment).

My room was only a standard room, but it had a nice desk, a heater, an electric blanket, a balcony and was lovely and clean. It has a nice bar and restaurant downstairs, plus a cafe. Its wifi is the best of any hostel I have ever stayed at. The minimum for $5 is 100 gigabyte, most deals are in the tetrabytes. Also, the wifi is flawless, most hostels have mean data allowances, crashing wifi and wifi that doesn't work everywhere. All the staff are friendly. The hostel is in the city centre, but near to the Avon river and in a quiet street. I love this place.
