I enjoyed my time at Kiwi Base camp in Christchurch & would stay here again!
The room I was in was bright, airy and reasonably clean. The staff were also quite friendly.
It would've been nice if the kitchens were a little cleaner (although that was probably more to do with the guests than the staff!) & had more tea towels in them! Also, some more fridge space would've been great. All that aside, my stay was lovely & the fresh bread in the morning was really great! 😊
The room is located next to a very busy road! Sleeping impossible... The stuff was friendly. I can not comment on social life, kitchen, hang out area etc. Because I just stayed for 9 hours (one night) Also Christchurch is not a place you need to go in general
Good value for money, but I had trouble sleeping in Room 10 next to Bealey Avenue on a Saturday night due to rowdy boy-racers and sirens (double-glazing might fix this problem). Liked the home-made bread smell in the morning and the floury footprints on the carpet near kitchen door...
Good location if you want to be in a quieter area in Christchurch. Next to one of the main entrances to the Botanic Garden. 15-20 minutes walking from the city centre.
A bit small dorms but really confortable beds and clean sheets.
Enough bathrooms and two kitchens, so it weren't packed.
Really nice living room and garden.
Staff were nice and helpful.
There is free WiFi and you can also use a computer there.
I booked a 6 mixed dorm. The room is so small, you dont have much space to put your bag and everything. They use the electronic lock door, the door is heavy and when it close it creates noise. I couldnt sleep well because of the whole night ppl keep banging the door.
The staff didnt introduce anything about the hostel to me and was telling me to ask about the transport when I leave the next day early morning. he told me that someone will be on duty in the morning. Luckily I asked the him when I check in, because I didnt see any on duty staff in that morning.
I am so glad that I only stayed one night
