Welcome to our hostel

YHA Rolleston House has reopened with new energy and enthusiasm; much like its city home.

YHA Christchurch Rolleston House is a character home which has been converted into a comfortable hostel located opposite the Canterbury Museum, The Botanical Gardens and Hagley Park. Stroll along the willow-lined Avon River or enjoy Hagley Park’s acres of green parkland. The hostel provides late night entry for prebookings arriving on late flights and buses. Other facilities include a lock-up area for cycles and a domestic travel booking service. For train reservations, a service operates twice each morning from the hostel to the rail depot, Rolleston House is a beautiful historic building. Most bedrooms are located on the first floor with all communal facilities (kitchen, lounge, dining and bathrooms) located on the ground floor.

Please see our friendly reception staff for information on what to do around our beautiful city and to assist with any accommodation, travel and activities bookings around New Zealand. We are here to help.

it would be better if a lift is installed as it is difficult to carry luggage over the stairs.

Great location in the city center of Christchurch, very close to bus stop, museum, and i-site. One thing I would recommend is the door of the bathroom. YHA should replace the curtain in woman bathroom to the door.

Die zuvorkommende Art u. Hilfe, die mir zuteil wurde, weil ich d. Oberarm gebrochen hatte, war ausserordentlich, Reservierung eines unteren Bettes, Tragen d. Koffer u. aus dem storage Raum holen. Zudem war d. Personal sehr hilfreich mit telefonieren f. Taxis, umbuchen v. shuttle tickets, Infos aller Art. Das gratis WiFi funktionierte tadellos. Die Matratzen waren leider sehr durchgelegen. Vielleicht könnte Regenwasser als Toilettenwasser genutzt werden und Ökoseife verwendet werden?

Besonders gut hat mir gefallen, wie hilfsbereit und kompetent die Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption bezüglich Empfehlungen von Aktivitäten in Chistchurch; Buchung weiterer Yha Unterkünfte sind.

Inconvenient to have dorms on one floor and showers on a totally different floor. Otherwise, a lovely hostel in an excellent location. Not my first time staying here.
