    Small but well managed clean hostel”

    I love the ambiance of the homey like hostel. Conveniently located in a quiet suburb but near the bus stop. I love the clean bedrooms with a great view. The kitchen is well equipt! And the always available coffee/ tea/ sugar and freshly baked bread in the morning is totally awesome! If there's one thing that i find tiresome is having to walk about 3 kms back and forth to get to the nearest supermarket / mall for my needs. Though the hostel is not entirely at fault as that is the usual locations in a laidback suburb in Christchurch.

    Going downhill”

    I've stayed here a number of times, including an extended stay when I first moved to Christchurch. What a bummer that it seemed it disrepair since I had last been there. Breakfast apparently no longer exists, the patio furniture had taken a serious beating, and the bathrooms were dirty (especially a shame as at least one of them was only redone 2 years ago.) Maybe it's just a covid thing and hopefully they'll spruce it up again. Used to be the best hostel in Christchurch.

    Great for a solo backpacker who need private room”

    - The room rate for single was good, but I stay in the room closest to the road which I found that during late night, there are numbers of people try to do very short range racing on the road (just one red light to another one) near my windows. - Toilet and shower is good, has enough number of room. - Bread of breakfast was delicious. - Good location for bus stop to airport
