I had the pleasure of staying at this facility en route from Queensland to Wellington. I am an expat Kiwi, living in Australia, and wanted to support this beautiful city, so terribly traumatised by the 2011 earthquake, but recovering in such an amazing way. No negativity amongst the locals! Amazing. The YMCA has very comfortable rooms to suit everyone, is... More

I was there for 1 night before continuing my flight the next day. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, very helpful and quick to respond my needs. The location was good, only minutes away from central Christchurch. I stayed in a private single room, it has everything I need for that price. The only downside was it was really noisy,... More

We had a twin private room for 2 nights with a shared bathroom. The room was very spacious and the bedding was hotel standard. Bathrooms were close by and spacious and clean with hot powerful showers. The kitchen was quite small but as it wasn't busy when we were making food it wasn't a issue. Great central location and very... More

SO, yes I have been to the YMCA in Christchurch New Zealand but not as a guest using a room Personally sharing a bathroom with someone with whom and my never see and do not know gives me the willies. I was there to use one of the facilities/activities that they offer for those who stay there as well as... More

A good place to stay. I stayed in a separate room,with shared amenities I found the staff very friendly, and booking in was no problem. The rooms are easy to find, with several toilets and showers, and each floor. The room was clean and the towel changed, daily. There is two eateries on site, which provide a good selection of...

We stayed here as part of the Kiwi Experience bus for a night. It was okay. Large spacious rooms but lack of plug sockets. Bathrooms were spectate to rooms but individual. Kitchen very small, not well equipt or clean. Also closes relatively early and nowhere near enough fridge storage space. Good location near botanical gardens and Canterbury museum

We had some misgivings about staying here, but it was fine and the room was a good size and clean. There was a raucous school group staying here (who seemed to think it was amusing to press every button in the lift and leave trays of food lying around) but luckily they calmed down in the evening so our sleep...

I stayed here for one night in April 2015 with the Kiwi Experience. I stayed in a private room which was very big for a hostel, and just across the corridor from some of the bathrooms. It only took a few minutes to walk to the shopping centres, and there was a good free street art exhibition on when we... More

Walls aren't sound proofed very well so you... More

My partner and I stayed here in the middle of April and enjoyed our stay. We had a double room which was beside a bathroom. These were cleaned every morning. Complimentary towels also were on the beds. We didn't use the kitchen area as we ate out both days. So not sure what this was like. Internet you have to... More
