This was my first time staying in a backpackers/hostel-type budget accommodation during a vacation, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I booked a twin ensuite as I'm not the kind who could use a shared communal bathroom. Check-in was fairly easy. We had to wait 10 minutes for our room to be ready as we had arrived earlier than...

I've spent 4 nights in Feb. and 2 more nights in March in a double room. Everything was fine - you cannot expect more except one thing- they advertise there is Wi Fi which misled me to understad that there is a free access which is not , otherwise , why they advertise it and not all other extra paid...

Just what we needed after living in a van for a week. We booked a private double room for 1 night before we had to catch an early flight the next morning. Bed was comfortable, plenty of space in the room, clean. Not too sure about the unisex toilets, they got a bit dirty come night time. Only point that... More

We stayed just one night in a twin room. The room was not really pretty and for just three dollars more you would get a motel room in city area. The only good thing was the internet for 5$ we got 100GB for 24 hours more then enough. The kitchen was okay just the oven hadn't any backing sheets just... More

We traveled to Ch-Ch in March 2015 and were there for 3 nights, arriving from a long international flight. We were using Ch-Ch as a base for day trips around the city and needed a place to sleep/come back to in the evening. The YMCA is perfect as it is located within a 30 second walk to the i-site on...

i really disliked my stay at this hostel for many reasons. I had expected a higher standard of hygiene and cleanliness for one, considering the high price we paid for a twin room with shared bathroom. The room itself was spartan and quite lifeless, it almost felt like staying in a student dorm again. The communal lounge had s stale... More

we spent 2 nights here before heading back to Queenstown. Booked a room with 3 beds. Room and Toilets were clean. the best thing was a 24 hours reception. Location wise wasnt a problem as we had a car to drive around.But there are a few parks around which you can chill. Staff were helpful and attentive to our needs.

We arrived at 5am in the morning at the YMCA. We had booked for 2 days (27th and 28th February and had confirmation from the night porter of our reservation. When we arrived, the reception staff denied us having booked there for an early checkin on the 27th and told us the place was fully booked. We hadn't slept at... More

The ymca has so much going for it . The location, pricing,gym and dining in house are all in it"s favour. BUT BE AWARE the deluxe ensuite twin rooms ALL have adjoing balconies. Which means that all the windows which you can open adjoin the next rooms balcony! The effect is that the privacy and security of your room is... More

We spent 3 nights here to start our visit to NZ before our campervan trip. The staff were very nice, they lent us chairs to go to the concert in the park and helped us with printing. The hostel is located right next to the botanic gardens in the middle of the city. The rooms were basic but good size.... More
