Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city on the South Island and second largest city by urban area in New Zealand. Although some argue it is the only real city on the entire South Island. Originally settled by Maori tribes around 1250 AD this area of the South Island has always had some sort of occupation since then.

Dorset House is on the highest level of backpacker accommodation and is only let down by a distant and minimally available approach to service. The desk closes at 6.
