I was surprised by the lovely grounds and gardens at Foley Towers, someone obviously spends a lot of time on these, and they create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, its like stepping off a city street and into a semi rural setting. We were in a twin room with ensuite which was functional with 2 beds and desk and bedside... More

Run by a lovely couple, Rory and Jemma, lovely room, nice space and very clean. Good location, really helpful, decent toilet and shower. The communal area was decent - tv room, free games, good kitchen. Seemed to be universally liked by others too.

Clean, cosy and nice place The hostel provides big dining area, kitchen, and reading room. Any backpacker who wanted to stay more than 1 month has to move out for a week in order to make the room is under maintenance - CLEAN. This is a good control !

I stayed at Foley's 2 month last year and 3 month this year. The staff has always been fantastic and keeps the place as it should be: Clean and tidy. I've stayed in several rooms and have never been disappointed. For not being a party hostel the parties in Foley's are great. Many guitars and lots of funny people. The... More

We stayed here 1 night. The hostel is located at the edge of the center which is just a 10 minute walk away.We had a nice double room with a good bed and clean bathroom. There is also a nice garden where one can sit and relax. The common rooms are nice and the 2 kitchens are well equiped. Tip:... More

This is a lovely hostel with beautiful gardens and clean communal areas and kitchens. As always in New Zealand, the wifi is extremely slow and expensive and borders on unusable a lot of the time. The location is good; within walking distance to what's left of the city, and to supermarkets. We stayed in a double ensuite private room which... More

Unfortunately we stayed only one night in this backpacker - if we'd known earlier that it would be so clean and the kitchen so lovely equipped we would have stayed longer in Christchurch. The staff is friendly and the rooms very comfortable and quite. A great place to reload energy after travelling through a lot of not so nice accomodations.

I stayed at Foley Towers for about a week, and simply loved the place. The gardens are beautiful and even though the hostel beds quite a few people, it still has a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are clean, as are the common bathrooms and kitchens. There's lounges to hang out in and guitars to borrow, and we had quite... More

We stayed at Foley Towers for 4 nights on our last days in New Zealand. We wanted place to relax, get clean and repack after living out of a car for several months. Foley Towers was the place to go! Close enough to the city to explore, but far enough away to be quiet and private. We got a double... More
