Property description

Are you yearning for a comfortable bed and a place that makes you feel at home?

The Old Countryhouse is an award winning hostel that has had comfort and coziness sorted for over 20 years! Our colonial style villas are well heated, have excellent kitchen facilities, lounges to chill out and watch a movie and much much more!!

Free unlimited high speed WiFi helps you to stay in touch with the world, and once you peel yourself away from the screen you can relax and get a touch of luxury in the Spa & Sauna Sanctuary. What more could you want in a backpackers?
Well... we also have spacious gardens with bean bags (in Summer...), laundry facilities, a picnic and BBQ area and a good choice of private rooms and dorms for you!

Our friendly staff members are always keen to help out. They will go the extra mile for you if you want to book activities, rental cars, want to know your way around the city or the South Island, or just need a bit of travel advice. We are all fellow travelers, want to be tested on our local knowledge and love to share our own favourite places to see, eat, do and hang out.

The Old Countryhouse is located on the eastern side of central Christchurch. We have the best of both worlds: close enough to the city to walk easily within 15 minutes, or a 20 minutes stroll along the riverside, yet right next to local shops and restaurants. There is a supermarket, the best butcher in Christchurch (not kidding), Post Office, Subway restaurant, Fish'n Chips, etc. conveniently located just across the road. Two of our favourite Cafe's are just a short 5-10 minute walk as is our favourite pub.

Buses to local beaches, all major shopping malls and city leave directly from our doorstep. Easily accessible from the airport and only 1500 metres from the Intercity Bus Depot. Free Pick up from the hostel service for Longer Distance Shuttle Buses serving the South Island.
