Nice area, clean , i recommended
It a nice place, really well located, few minutes from riverside market and next door as a little wine tasting reato and art area. Staff been nice. I lost my medication in Queenstown and they send it to the hostel Give in Christchurch. I was in another city at that time and they call me right away to told me to dont worroes that they have my medication with me and that they will keep sage until I arrived. Was clean, tidy, nice room. The only think.. if im really looking for something to say is that because it all device kitchen by level yont dont really meet poeple and commun area as the tiny leaving space it note teally used by poeple. but this hotel is really great . I went 2 time and I can say that I will return at any time and recommend it.

10/10 Exceptional

Fresh, clean and modern with great staff and value. Loved looking out my window at the art gallery and museum, close to botanic gardens and some nice cafes. Good to have an inhouse cafe and restaurant too which was lovely food. Loved how sustainable and eco friendly it was also. Would stay again. I recommend if you dont mind sharing clean bathroom and kitchen facilities. Always available when i needed them so wasnt a problem for me. Loved my room too with own tv, very cosy.

My favourite was their beds and the fact the tv was a smart TV so you could sign into Disney or Netflix. And they were able to accommodate my partner needing a accessible room due to him having surgery.
