YHA Christchurch, Christchurch
Very clean, very convenient, very good
Great location, superb budget option, literally down the block from the Botanic Gardens and so close to everything else in ChCh. I booked a private room that was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional. The kitchen was well-equipped; the bathrooms were clean; and overall just a good experience.

YHA Christchurch, Christchurch
Very rude staff. It was very hit in the room. Couldn't sleep. The bed was shaken me every time people move and noisy. The shower was clean. Nice kitchen and dining room

Thumbs up
I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing first impression to my dorm itself. Smooth check in, a dorm of 4 came with its own tv, bathroom and a beautiful balcony. Close to everything, and a warm, cozy feel to it.
