YHA Rolleston House

Great location right next to the Botanic Gardens, and overall a decent - if looking a bit ramshackle - YHA hostel. Seems to be popular with people staying a long time in Christchurch - at least, that was the feeling I got from the vibe there.

Great location right next to the Botanic Gardens, and overall a decent - if looking a bit ramshackle - YHA hostel. Seems to be popular with people staying a long time in Christchurch - at least, that was the feeling I got from the vibe there.
Service at reception was downright lousy both times I stayed here (a week apart, with different people at reception). That doesn't matter much to me, as I know the ropes - but I can imagine someone who's not used to YHA hostels not wanting to stay here because of that.

There's free overnight parking right next door (free between 17:00 and 09:00 (except on Friday nights, when it isn't free until later at night); metered 2-hour max parking from 09:00 to 17:00). Very useful if you have a rental car to drop off the next morning before flying out.
