YHA Christchurch Rolleston House has re-opened 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.
This property is a small and homely hostel with a range of backpacker accommodation including multi-share, double, twin and ensuite rooms. The kitchen and dining areas are well equipped, modern and pleasant.
Rolleston House is centrally located and is handy to bus routes. It's the perfect home base for exploring everything Christchurch has to offer: the city, the beaches, the Port Hills and everywhere else you might like to wander.
Christchurch is the largest city and gateway to the South Island. It is currently recovering from the 2010/2011 earthquakes. This has revealed the enterprise and dynamism of its people. Visit pop up malls, markets and thriving regeneration projects and suburbs, such as Addington. A full range of activities and tours is still available close to the city. Every adventurous traveller should visit!
"YHA Christchruch Rolleston House is a key landmark in the Central City and its reopening will help to attract tourists back into the city as it’s in a prime spot next to our wonderful museum, the Arts Centre and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. In a city that has lost so many of its heritage buildings, people will no doubt also be delighted to see this grand building restored." – Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker
