Details of The Old Countryhouse, Christchurch, New Zealand Youth Hostels Details for The Old Countryhouse

Welcome to the Old Countryhouse, one of Christchurch's favourite backpacker accommodation hostels for 15 years.

We invite you to take a walk along our garden path to one of our charming colonial villas with polished wooden floors and hand-made native timber furniture. All our villas have been fully restored and have everything to make your stay with us a memorable one. They are set among landscaped gardens, and have electronic secure access.

Some of the CBD is still closed but the best parts of Christchurch are open and definitely worth a visit. Make sure you see reception for information and bookings on all the best attractions and activities in and around Christchurch. Ask for our Walking Rally taking you through the new and funky places that have popped up all over the city as well as the city sights.

The newly added SPA POOL & SAUNA are a big hit with all our guests - and it's FREE.

MAX, OUR PUPPY has just had his first birthday, he now is a big fellow, still keen to play and just loves big cuddles. We will post an updated photo of him shortly.

Full central heating to keep warm during those cold winter months, Doubles & Twins (with and without private bathrooms) & spacious Dorms - all with firm beds for a good nights sleep. Triple rooms have one double and one single bed. All private rooms have fully made up beds. All bedding is included free of charge in both private rooms and dorms.

The Old Countryhouse is located on the eastern side of central Christchurch.

There is a supermarket, the best butcher in Christchurch, 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 it our favourite pub.
