We stayed in Jailhouse for one day during out trip around NZ. It is located very close to the train station (perfect for those who take TransAlpine Express in the morning) with a free shuttle from the hostel. However, for those who want to stay in the downtown it will be inconvenient as the hostel is located in a quite remote area.
The hostel has a very authentic and unusual character. We enjoyed it a lot. It is very clean and thoroughly renovated from the prison. The room was relatively cold, however the blanket was warm and the matress super comfortable! Overall, we recommend this hostel for those interested in unusual experience while travelling.More
