    I like staying at the YMCA primarily because of its location.. I used to be a student when the University was at the Arts Centre, and like like to go back there. Also to walk in th gardens. It is an excellent value of money deal.

    handy to conference location, cheap and cheerful but safe and quiet. Was only there to sleep virtually so met my needs for a quick trip to chrsitchurch. Taxi much cheaper if you book at reception to go to the airport or prebook before the visit - a great service - only $25 out versus the $55 i paid coming in from another company!! Would not have thought to stay here but someone at work said The CHCH YMCA was very good and was cheaper than hotels closer to the venue

    Sharing the bathroom with others but i knew that before i booked. Was disappointed there was not a shower in the bathroom beside my room

    As budget type accommodation it is excellent, superb shower and the location close to CBD is excellent.

    For our purposes it was excellent.

  • Older travelers

    Stayed at YMCA Christchurch as it was familiar surroundings and we like the cafe and restaurant across the road. Easy to walk to the centre.

    Breakfast not worth the money

  • Family with children

    Great location and value. Free parking right downtown as well. After checking in, we decided to upgrade from a standard to a "luxury" room, which had ensuite and in-room tea/coffee, and a nice view. Definitely would stay in a luxury room again.

    No wi-fi available. Communal kitchen was cramped and the fridge quite full. Would not recommend a long stay here if self-catering is essential.

  • Group of friends

    It's position in the city area and single room availability. Good breakfasts at a reasonable price in the restuarant.

    Shower rooms not serviced very well with discarded towels left lying about. Evening meals in the restuarant not very appetising.
