Fantastic Backpackers


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.

Incredible Staff


Homely feel, stayed 3 nights had a lovely time. Made me feel like i was stepping into someone’s home and it was so peaceful. Staff made you feel special and would go the extra mile for you, the receptionist booked an Uber for me as I’d lost my phone and was due to pick it up. Such a lovely, refreshing change to hostels.

The place is nice, clean, warm and cozy.


The room is very clean, The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen are clean and nice feeling to use them. The hostel is a warm and cozy place to stay. I booked two nights on arrival, and after traveling two months, I booked one night before I left Christchurch. I came back because the place is great.

Perfect Hostel!


I’ve tried several hostels here in Christchurch while staying at the South Island in the last months. This one is definitely my favorite. It’s clean, cozy, the staff is super friendly and the kitchen well equipped. Especially for me as a solo traveler it was super easy to meet other people here. And even without a car I’m able to reach everything in the city by walking.
Definitely recommend this one :)
