About twenty minutes outside the centre of Christchurch we found a real treasure!
Pointbreak Backpackers is conviently located beside the beach of New Brighton, with city access via frequent bus service.
A great place to stay if you want to escape the busy city and have a comfortable quiet night's sleep. We booked a double room, and got a large modern family room. The whole hostel is recently refurbished, so facilities are up to date and bathrooms are clean. There is a snug area where you can kick back and relax, free local phone calls ( great if you are hiring a car, or booking a tour) , internet access, and a tv room. Downstairs offers a cafe style Thai restaurant for lunch and dinner.
Located beside ANZ bank, Domino's Pizza is close by, a few pokey surf shops and the local pubs.
My advice: Dont be put off by the fact it's not in the city centre, it's great value for money and the bus runs every ten minutes from across the road to the Bus station in the City for about a Dollar Seventy NZ.
