I stayed at The Old Countryhouse on two occasions, either side of a trip around the top of the South Island.
As I was only there a night on each occasion, I decided to go for a double room with an ensuite. I stayed in the same room on both occasions, located in House II. Whilst the room was very clean, it was small and sparsely furnished, with only a double bed and two small bedside tables. Apart from a row of hooks, there was nowhere to hang anything.
I paid $125 per night, which I felt was high given the above. Obviously since the February 2011 earthquake, accommodation in Christchurch is a lot scarcer as so much was destroyed, and perhaps the room rate reflects this. Even so. I still felt that for the accommodation on offer, the rate charged was high.
The hostel itself is well equipped, and I have no complaints in respect of the other facilities. The free wifi was a nice touch.
