I loved this hostel so much! I only stayed one night but it was absolutely fantastic. As soon as I walked in I knew it would be great! The staff were so helpful in letting me know how to get to Akaroa and giving me information. The coffee was great too! It is such a unique place to stay and I loved the fact that they had kept some of the cells as viewing cells for historical purposes. the room was so beautiful and clean and warm! They give you a towel on your bed too which was awesome. There are two cool hang out and chill rooms and there is a pool table too! The showers were super warm and really decent water pressure. it is a bit far out of town but there are some cool cafes and pubs down the street. As well as this the bus to Akaroa picked me up straight outside. niiiiiiiiiiccccccce. Stay here.
