The Old Countryhouse is another favorite in Christchurch. It's a pleasant place to stay with a garden path that connects the charming colonial villas. Each villa has been restored and has quaint wooden floors and native timber furniture. You will quickly feel welcomed here as it has the feel of a home away from home. There's even a pet dog, Max, who will greet you eagerly with cuddles. The staff are travelers themselves, so they understand what you might be looking for as a solo traveler.
The hostel has doubles, twins, and triples as well as large dorms. Shared and private bathrooms are available and heating is available during the winter months. Other amenities include free wi-fi, a full kitchen, a television room, a reading room, laundry facilities, and off street parking.
The hostel is located on the eastern side of central Christchurch. It's about a 15 minute walk into the city center. There are many shops, restaurants, and a grocery store nearby. You can also easily catch a bus to a local beach or shopping mall.
