Had a great stay here in a twin private room, great location: only 10mins away from town centre and the restart mall and just opposite the gardens. The staff were super friendly from check in to check out, and the rooms were spacious with comfy beds, I especially liked the electric blanket! Nice touch guys

Located centrally, near to most of the sightseeing places. The rooms are comfortable, sleep quality is good, bathrooms are well maintained, charging points are handy, bed quality is good. The community kitchen is extremely small and is full at times. You need to wait in queue for your turn to come and cook. The refrigerator is handy, you can keep...

We booked and arrived on the same day ana were unable to stay together as there was no space. When we arrived the staff had given us a private twin room for the same price as the dorms so we wouldn't be separated - such a nice gesture! Very clean and tidy rooms and good cooking facilities. Good location for...

Spent one night here arriving at 2am. It is the cheapest accommodation with 24hr check-in in Christchurch. Bed was comfortable and location was good. 20 min bus ride back to the airport the following day costs $8.

This hostel was fairly bare boned, but comfortable. The young ones running rampage outside our room made for a disturbed night sleep, but I remember what it was like to be young, so no hard feelings. Shower facilities where up to standard.

This is a good hostel if you don't expect to much. It has everything you need. A comfy bed, friendly staff, a vending machine if you feel like a late night snack and it's just opposite of where most of the big long distance busses go such as naked bus and intercity. You meet people from all over the world...

I stayed at the YMCA for 3 nights during a trip around NZ and it is honestly one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in. The rooms were spacious, with handy shelves about each bed. Only complaint would be lack of electrical sockets. Luckily I always bring my own extension plug but 4 sockets to a room of 6...

We (mature age couple) have been staying at the Y in Christchurch for over a decade. What you see is what you get - economical, unpretentious, solid and dependable. In shaky Christchurch, the latter two attributes are really important. When we first came back after the earthquakes, locals were interested in where we had found accommodation . We hadn't realised...

The sheets on my bed were dirty on arrival and appeared as if they hadn't been changed or washed since the last guest used them. The kitchen is very small for the number of people using it. The WiFi is expensive. Some - but not all - of the staff were very friendly and helpful.
