YMCA Christchurch Hostel, Christchurch
ask staff for supermarket,cafe, fast-food location
Overall great location & place to stay, nice window views of botanical gardens. Very clean room, bathrooms, kitchen room, and TV couch sitting areas. Only issues in my room was squeaky upper bunk bed overhead from other backpacker.

Very Good8.0
Conveniently located from downtown
The main issue I had with the hostel is the hallway on my floor smelled like wet smelly socks. The room was spacious and the modern looking shared bathroom was across my room. The kitchen was spacious and was well stocked.

Very Good8.0
The " Y " is always good.
Rooms at the YMCA always rate highly with me. They are clean, well run and facilities are large enough that they are more like a mini hotel. My room was nice. It was quiet there. It is just a few blocks from the bus interchange and right across the street from the bus pick up for trip to Queenstown and right by the museum and a large park. Easy walk to CBD.
Bradney, us1 night trip
YMCA Christchurch Hostel, Christchurch
Great location, city center walking distance. One of the most beautiful parks across the street. However there were constant door slamming through every night duration of the stay. This was due inconsiderate guests not the fault of the staff.
