Our Facilities

Check out our facilities

We have 36 beds made up of 4 bed dorm rooms, 1 double room and a twin room. All mattresses are inner sprung and the facilities are shared. Our rooms & rates are based on a nightly rate per person per bed & include linen (duvet, sheets, pillow and pillow case). Prices are in NZD$ and inclusive of GST (tax).

We accept late arrivals after 9.00pm. Once we receive your confirmed booking we will email you the late arrival instructions.

We have a lovely sunny outdoor area with a garden, picnic tables, hammocks, bean bags and BBQ or inside you can enjoy our TV room with Netflix and a book exchange in the computer room.

Our hostel is set up to accommodate small children. However, children aged 17 or younger must be accompanied by a guardian/parent.

A family must book the whole dorm to them selves if the children are under 17 years of age. This means paying for all beds that are not used in that dorm. We do not allow 16 years and under to share the dorms with other guests. We highly recommend booking your family into our private rooms.

We cannot always guarantee that guests from a group booking will be in the same room or any booking will be in the same room for the duration of the stay, we do our best to keep everyone together. At the time of booking we charge the credit card for the first night – this confirms the booking.

We will fully refund if you cancel your booking 48 hours prior to your arrival. A no show will be charged balance of 1 night or 50% of entire booking whichever is the greater. Please read the rest of our hostel policies.

Please note: security cameras throughout the hostel and in the car park.  Parking in our off street parking is at your own risk, do not leave any valuables in your car and keep it locked.  We have a bike shed in a secure area that everyone is welcome to use, do not leave bikes unlocked.

Still a little confused? Don’t worry, we have put together lots of information about whats on in Christchurch, how to get to and from the hostel, booking bus tours & hire cars, surf snow & weather reports as well as where to go and what to do in our awesome city.


I liked their own style of the hostel. It has a backyard, a TV room very nice, but the computer room with a small library was the best part in my opinion. The rooms are good too. Each bed has their own light attached to the wall and a pocket where you can save your belongings.
