We only stayed one night. We arrived late from the airport. The rooms and bathrooms have been clean, staff was very friendly . We had a great sleep and ready for a 1 day sightseeing in Christchurch. Good value for money! Definitely recommended.

After arriving on kiwi bus we were made to wait half an hour at the reception desk before getting served although we had been at the front of the queue, the staff continued to check in others who had arrived in their direct line. After pointing out that we had been waiting a lot longer than anyone else she quickly... More

Stayed in a single room. Room is bare bones but understandable for the price that I am paying. Shared bathrooms are clean and plenty. Good thing about them is the fact that they are self contained, ie. both the toilet as well as shower is in their respective rooms

4 bed dorm mixed, share bathroom with 1-2 other rooms. The barhrooms was a bit dirty in the corners. Nice rooms with space on the floor, and clean. The kitchen was a little bit small, and not that much room in the fridges. Good location the city.

We stayed one night in a private room with ensuite. Excellent quality, even had a balcony along with a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Great location, next to the park and 5 mins from the centre.

For the price we paid we felt it was an average stay for a 3 bed unit. Shared Kitchen was small and shared bathroom was a bit dirty. The room did get really hot at night and opening the window didnt help much. The beds were comfortable and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Good location as well. Felt... More

Had the best stay at YMCA Christchurch. I got upgraded from a big dorm to a 4 bed dorm! Well worth doing if you can! It was really clean and tidy. The staff really helpful and friendly! It is close to the bus stops and not that far away from town, however there is not a lot around for something... More

Overall we felt the hostel was a good value for the money: $80 for the night included a private double bed, corner room which had plenty of room for our bags, and multiple single bathrooms along the hallway so we never had to wait for a shower and toilet. There are restaurant facilities in the building which we did not... More

This so called hostel is more like a hotel with some dorms inside , the place itself is located very close to the park and museum which is worth a visit, however the nearest supermarket is a good 20 minute walk away and the kitchen facilities at the YMCA are rubbish. A tiny kitchen to cater for hundreds of people... More

Wonderful haven of a room! Comfortable beds, full bath with towels and facecloths, small refrigerator and coffee/tea hot pot & set up. Balcony, too! This is a phenomenal facility with a communal kitchen, gym, travel agency, 24 hour reception, separate parking lot and the best restaurant in Christchurch--Duos. We stayed here the last two nights of our trip and wished... More
