I had a lovely time during my stay here. There was great conversation and a convenient location. This was an ideal place to stay while in Christchurch.

Central location and very friendly staff

Posted Mar 16, 2017
Pros: Central location, good amenities like free wifi, laundry service and the most helpful and nicest receptionists (all of them) that rivals 5 * hotels.
Cons: Better noise control at night (young guests not considerate), change bedsheets daily not 4 days for same guest and some toilets/sinks could be cleaner
Location: Hagley Park, museum, city centre
As the name suggested, it is for backpackers travelling in NZ. For that purpose it is very good in terms of amenities eg free car park, central location, aids in daily activities, laundry, call cards and complementary dvds. The reception staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. If you require a budget accommodation and willing to share a room with multiple occupants like 4-6 then this should be ok. I did it for the experience and happy that I had tried it once.

Friendly atmosphere in a well-equipped kitchen

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Pros: Friendly atmosphere, pretty garden. Free parking at the back and on the street overnight (before a certain time). They had recycling - great!
Stayed one night. Was a comfortable stay at the end of the corridor next to a shared bathroom. The other bathrooms on the same floor provided hot showers and had mixed taps. Kitchen was extremely well-equipped with salt/pepper, spices etc, and was pleasant (brightly lit). Facilities were clean. Accessed the front door with a code that was provided (easy to use).

Really enjoyed the Dorset House! The concierges were incredibly helpful in helping us navigate the area. The house was welcoming and comfortable.
