A bit damp but okay”

The bedding felt quite damp, perhaps due to the proximity to the beach. However, the price was reasonable and the room was very spacious. The location is also close to the center of New Brighton, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Good place to stay for travelers”

This hostel is good, if you are staying for few nights in Christchurch. It has really good location, just few min by walk from Pier. Just 20 min by car to city centre. The price worth to stay and my room was very clean and comfortable, so I would stay again and can recommend it for few nights during traveling.

Cheap but it should be much cleaner.”

The room was OK and it was very cheap but the hallways and facilities don't look like they have been cleaned for years. The carpet is so filthy you need to wear shoes with many food and stains spread down the hallway. Towels were on the floor in the bathroom to absord leaks from the toilet. There is no reason that it can't be much better.
