We stayed at Chester St Backpackers for three nights and we really enjoyed our stay here. This place is more than a backpackers hostel, it felt like home, there was a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It's a perfect size to make great friends and enjoy each others company. Wonderful memories of baking, cooking and relaxing in the lounge and garden. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although Christchurch has suffered much damage caused by the earthquakes in 2010/11, the Chester St Backpackers is a haven. It seems like this place has recovered well.
