I would highly recommend staying here if you have a budget accommodation in mind. We don't normally stay in YHA but after staying here would happily try other YHA sites. Room was smallish with 2 single beds but for the price and cleanliness - well worth it. We were in the centre of town and the staff were great.

My three night stay at the YHA Christchurch was very comfortable. The placewas exceptionally clean and all ammenities were available. Much credit given to the utilisation of the space, albeit a small building - a tight kitchen. The closest supermarket is over a kilometer away, therefore a greater stock of useful and needed items (especially breakfast stuff) can be made... More

Great location, nice staff, large and clean kitchen, comfy beds in a nice room. Especially The location Close to The gardens and The large dining Area is kept in mind positively. We will stay here again for one night before our flight home and looking forward to spend our last night in NZ here.

Stayed for two nights with a friend in a female-only room. It had an ensuite bathroom which was nice, and the overall size of the room was extremely spacious. Beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. The kitchen is a tad small for a busy dinnertime but nothing that good communication and friendly spirit can't solve. The common area... More

I stayed here for a night in a private single room. It's very clean and brand new. It feels more like a hotel than a hostel, which for some is a good thing. The bathroom is shared and could be a bit cleaner, but for how big the place is, it wasn't that bad. The location is great for the... More

I stayed in a 6 bed female, en-suite dorm which was really nice and spacious with a big bathroom too (including a bath!). The place is clean, well equipped and there's lots of space to hang out in. Good central location near the cathedral and the botanics/park. Nice, helpful staff too.

I choose this hostel because it's really close to the naked bus station for me to stay just one night as stop. 10 mins walk from the bus station (I came from the airport) when I asked any room at the first floor because I have two big suitcase and one carry bag,they were full that day at the first...
