I travelled alone, my case did not arrive and I'd arranged a couple of outings with two social groups who I'd never met before. The staff here were fantastic, they rang the airport, checked on line and were so pleased for me when my case turned up 3 and a half days later. They were concerned for my safety meeting... More

Located in central christchurch, next to Hagley park and the museum. it was undergoing exterior work while i was there that began at 7AM, so if you were not up by then--you would be once work started. Room 219--single, shared bath, walls were thin and you could hear people in the halls, room was a nice size--single bed, desk, window.... More

I was in ChCh seeing family at Christchurch Hospital, I chose the YMCA because it was near the hospital (like 5 minutes walk away). I booked a double room with shared bathroom facilities to keep down my costs, the room was a good size and there were a number of bathrooms available on my floor which were dated, but clean....

Stayed at the YMCA twice last month as my stop overs in Christchurch. I chose the backpackers due to the location to the main bus stop. It is literally 2 minutes walk from the Hostel. Also the Taxi from the Airport had no issue finding it. As for location near food way out of the way, only because most of... More

We got into christchurch late afternoon and decided to spend the night somewhere before heading off on a 10 day road trip. All we needed was a room and somewhere to sleep. So we booked here. We had the private ensuit room which was good value for money. We were also able to park the car in the free car... More

Arriving at the YMCA, we wondered if there was some mistake and the place wasn't open, as it was covered in scaffolding. Despite the outer appearance, everything inside looked fine. We stayed in a deluxe room, and it was not bad at all. We were only affected by the reconstruction in minor ways - there was a little noise, we... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for one night after arriving in late from Sydney. We were travelling on again early the next morning to drive to Queenstown. Although we arrived late, when we arrived the lady at reception was lovely, really friendly and helpful. The hostel has good facilities, the room was clean and warm, with a tv and... More

Considering the quality and the location, this establishment should have a way higher price because the value is second to none, in my opinion. Opposite the Botanic Gardens, walk out the door to a world of gorgeous walks, along the river (complete with trout galore!) Only a 10 minute walk to the Cashel St Re-Start Mall where the 'container' shops... More
