What's On

Some of these things are new, some were here before, some have changed a bit or moved locations, but there's a vibrancy and sense of discovery happening that's led Lonely Planet to describe the city as one of New Zealand's "most exciting cities"

Fantastic Backpackers starRating

Bedrooms, bathrooms and communal rooms clean and well-presented. Staff helpful and friendly. Worth the extra couple of dollars over your usual backpackers. Convenient for park and gardens and bus pick ups from Canterbury museum.
