Only 10 minutes’ walk to the terminal. Stayed here for 1 night as I needed to be up by 4 am for a morning flight. Was pretty impressed by the spacious lounge area – I’ve stayed in many hostels and this is one of the biggest and nicest so far. Pods had blinds which ensured privacy and there is a light/USB/power switch right next to the bed. Massive lockers beneath the bed that could fit a suitcase. Woolies supermarket and plenty of food options just next door.

Staff are very welcoming and friendly!

Location is only a short 10 min walk to Christchurch International Airport and the small shopping centre (& Woolworths supermarket) next door to the hotel helps with meals/groceries if required. Excellent for air travelers on an early morning departure needing a place to rest. Though the small private room is without a kitchenette, the spacious & well-equipped communal kitchen is a great and fun concept. Strong wifi connectivity. Digital check-in/out, is a smart idea. The staff are very welcoming and friendly.

Really friendly community!

Really friendly community, great facilities to store/prepare/eat food. Beds are super comfy and the ensuite toilet was spacious and clean. The room was well designed to utilize the space efficiently.

Highly Recommend

It was very clean. It has everything. In the bathroom you could find everything: shampoo, bathroom gel, body cream, it was very clean. The pod was very comfortable. Highly recommended if you need to stay close to the Airport.

Great stay for transit from or to airport

The common are is huge and very cosy! The pod was bigger than expected. Also I was surprised that I could fit my 15kg backpack inside the locker in the shared bedroom. It’s very close to the airport and a supermarket.

A little zoo enclosure for people!

The pods were really cool, appreciated the shutter, individual light and air conditioning. The shared area was also huge and full of stuff (full kitchen, hammocks, plenty of seating, games etc) I like to describe it as a little zoo enclosure for people 😂

Fantastically convenient

Fantastically convenient location, all staff are helpful and friendly. The facilities are all as advertised and easy to navigate. Pods are big, lockers are good, bathrooms are as expected but kept clean. Kitchen was huge and great for cooking anything you needed. Stayed for 5 nights and was a great, cheap place to stay. Buses into the city come often and are easy to get to.

Strongly recommended!

We loved our (1 night) stay here. Excellent concept with a massive hang out room and a fully equipped kitchen. Lots of free food as well left by fellow travelers, which comes handy if you are short on anything and want to avoid the walk to the supermarket. The room was compact, but spotless clean and with a comfy bed. It was walking distance to the airport which was very convenient.

Awesome stay will be back!

Fastest check in and check out ever. Reception is 24hrs so someone is always on hand to assist you. Great service! Room was really clean and bed was comfortable. Loved the shower pressure so good! Location is great to Airport and rental car areas which we needed and right outside is plenty of food options for take out/dine in or a supermarket if you prefer to cook at lylo with their kitchen facilities which they have an abundance of. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. Wifi works super well too and they have items for free of hire, sports balls etc.

Very nice and clean hostel, 15 min walk from the airport, supermarket, pharmacy and other restaurants are only a 2 min walk, nice common area to chill, absolutely loved the herbs garden! The deluxe double room was worth the price.
