I stayed at this hostel as I was getting the NakedBus early the next morning and it is a good location to get the bus as its a two minute walk across the road. When I arrived at the hostel there was quite a big queue to check in as only one computer was working. However the reception girls were very friendly and there was a lot of guides and leaflets in the reception area that are free to use. As I finally got into my room there was 2 bunk beds which was a good thing as there was only 3 other people sharing the room which is not a huge amount. There is a big kitchen located downstairs of the hostel and a seating area with sofas. However the only bad thing I found about this hostel is the shower facilities are situated downstairs only which means you have to walk through the kitchen area to get to the showers. This made me feel quite uncomfortable when having to walk through the kitchen area.
Overall I would say this is an okay place to stay if you are going to stay no more than a few nights. There is not a huge amount to do in Christchurch due to the earthquake and there is not many shops nearby.
