Economical.

Room was fine and represented a lower cost option in Christchurch. On site restaurant food & beer was much over priced, $40 for a beer & 1 cse main was stupid.

A great deal in central Christchurch

When the expensive hotel down the road didn't have a double room available, we chose to stay at the Y. We opened the door to our deluxe room (by Y standards) and were met by bright sunshine and a view of the park across the street. Perfect location for visiting Christchurch. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative: a too-hard bed. But we will stay here again if visiting this city, which needs your support as it recovers from the devastating earthquakes.

Eat dinner at the misnamed The Coffee House. It is a restaurant, in a house, that serves coffee but also wonderful food at a fair price.

Good

It was good, and a great value. the location was the best part. I'd heard that it wasn't very clean, but when we got there we were pleasantly surprised. The staff members were all extremely helpful and courteous.

For the budget-minded

We booked the family room. It had a double and single bed and was ensuite. Nothing fancy but provided a place to sleep with access to a kitchen on a lower floor. Robert Harris Cafe on site. Reasonable weekly cost for Internet service. TV in room. We had a free earthquake ... 3.6.

Not like other YMCA

My previous experience with a YMCA was horrific (for USD$80 I got the tiniest -and not the cleanest- of rooms in NY) so I was a bit wary abut this one... However it turned out to be a pretty good choice, decently priced, with spacious rooms, a great location and clean and functioning shared facilities.
