Frequently Asked Questions

How far is your hostel from the City centre?

We are a 10-15 minute walk to the central City and Central Bus Station. We’ve got a bus stop from just around the corner if you would like to take the bus.

We also have 2 bikes available to hire, these bikes are ideal for getting around the city. These bikes come with a basket, helmet and lock. $10 for 1 hour $18 for half day (4 hours) $25 for full day (8 hours), contact the hostel to book.

What is a good place to get some food?

We just discovered the Little High Eatery and are big fans! It is a new and modern marketplace with 8 different local businesses. From wood fired pizza to sushi and don’t forget to try an amazing Bacon Brothers burger. It’s located on 181 High Street, about a 10-15 minute walk from ATW. www.littlehigh.co.nz

Beside Little High there are A LOT of restaurants and cafés in Christchurch to choose from.

Pomeroy’s, Comfy tavern with a traditional, UK-style vibe offering a vast beer selection & inventive pub grub is just around the corner from us. If you want to grab a quick something, Subway is only a 5 min walk away and Dominos Pizza delivers to our door.

How do I get to and from the airport?

The most convenient way from the airport is to catch one of the shuttles waiting just outside the arrival hall. We recommend the company Super Shuttle, they have a 24h service and drop you off right in front of our hostel for a fixed price of $24 for the first person, $5 for every other person. We can also book this for you in advance! Please contact Around the World to organise your shuttle booking.

If you want to save some money you can also catch the public bus at the airport for $8.50 or just outside of the airport across the road from the Sudima Hotel $4.00. Get off the bus at the Christchurch Bus Interchange, we are about 15 min away by foot or you can hop on the Yellow or Orange line (using the same bus ticket) and get off at Stop 46339, Gloucester St near Barbadoes Street.

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.
