Stayed here to be near botanical gardens. Rather noisy but the en-suite room sufficed. Needs a refit. Location and the free parking were the pros. However best to pay an extra $20 elsewhere for better comfort and peace.

Stayed here for a few nights. This is a quiet and clean hostel. Location is pretty good. There's communal areas with a television on each floor which is good as the kitchens are quite small. Our dorm room was very spacious and clean. Would recommend.

Fantastic location, huge twin room with a balcony looking out over the botanic garden. Quickest check in we've ever had by staff who were real friendly. Happy to help us find our way to the nearest supermarkets. As I said it's in a great location only about 5 minutes walk from the city and 2 minutes away from the botanic... More

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

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
