Originally from Europe, we fell in love with Christchurch after travelling the world for four and a half years. Having stayed at literally hundreds of backpackers hostels, we knew what independent travellers wanted when on the road. Surely this would be the perfect qualification for creating one of New Zealand’s best travellers’ hostels? Introducing The Old Countryhouse, Christchurch - we've turned our dream into a reality and love to share it with guests from across the globe.
The Old Countryhouse consists of three separate villas, and has an inviting, relaxed atmosphere, bright clean dorms, a reading lounge, a spa pool and sauna and a lovely garden with native ferns and lavender.
Our Facilities include:
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 simply just need a bit of travel advice.
The Old Countryhouse is approximately a 15 minute walk away from the city centre or you can take the scenic route along the riverbank and it's a 20 minute stroll. If you don't want to go that far,we have local shops and restaurants right next door that include a supermarket, the best butcher in Christchurch (no joke), a Post Shop, Subway restaurant, Fish'n Chips, etc. Two of our favourite Cafe's are just a short walk away as is our favourite pub.
Buses to local beaches, all major shopping malls and the city leave directly from our doorstep. The Old Countryhouse is easily accessible from the Christchurch International Airport and only only 1500 metres from the Public Bus Interchange and Intercity Bus Depot.
