Stayed here on 2 occasions when passing thru Christchurch in July (before and after touring far south of S. Island). Ridiculously clean and comfortable hostel with affable staff. Its big - theres a courtyard and 3 different countryhouses to stay in all with their own kitchens and bathrooms. They have a spa and sauna which were the highlights for me as the S. Island was pretty cold when traveling there. Location is good - maybe like 20 minute walk to city and theres a grocery and Subway right across the street. Bus stop outside front door, although I had a car. It may cost a bit more than avg hostel in NZ but well worth it...you get what you pay for, and staying in smelly cramped dormitories gets old after a month on the NZ backpacker trail. Highly recommended.
