We only stayed in this hostel for one night. However it was a good place to spend the time. The staff was really friendly and helpful. After a long day on the road the hostel was a good place to relaxe and have a good nights sleep. All facilities were clean and offered almost everything you need (except one of... More

It was only an emergency choice, as our all-time favourite hostel at Chester street was fully booked. We got a clean, spacious, well maintained double room for a quite reasonable price. It has a heater and even an attached shower cabin. The kitchen was well equipped and clean, with all the necessary tools, etc. The hostel staff was really-really friendly... More

Service was good as instruction was clear for late check-in. However upon arrival to our room the bed was not made. It is ok as the keepers there made up by making the bed for us though they were off duty. They were friendly and apologetic. We stayed in a double room. Room was basic. With heater. No towel. We...

Great location and within walking distance to the red zone and restart mall. We arrived early and were able to check in to our room before 2pm which was great. We had a twin room in the garden and it was clean and practical. Was good to have an ensuite and the room was clean. The beds were comfortable. We... More

We just needed a place to stopover before flying home, and weren't too fussy. Glad we chose the shared rooms - much better than dorms with your own bed and only two or three others to share with. But despite the quiet room, a rowdy drunken party outside in the garden kept us all awake despite our pleas for them... More

We stay in a twin ensuite room which was comfortable and we did have a good sleep after taking long flight. Late arrival with no problem at all as Natalie explain through email for the instruction while I make booking. Due to flight delayed we reach Foley at 10 something and the taxi fare surprisingly not higher than shuttle! Kitchen... More

We later rang to doubly confirm our booking ...she remembered me & our booking, then gave some great tips for our trip to Chch. She also confirmed we could have towels... More

New Zealand hotels are expensive so I stayed at this backpackers place. It has a lot of nice room options over several houses/low buildings. I had a very nice single. There are full kitchen facilities - in fact two kitchens. Very clean. Bathrooms are shared and well-kept. You can rent a bed or a room. It's walkable to town and... More

We stayed in a triple room one night as we were traveling with a friend and then moved to the Foley Flat, their "best room", which is a double with an ensuite bath. The rooms were both spacious, but unfortunately in both instances the walls were paper thin and therefore it was entirely impossible to sleep. We complained to the... More
