Jailhouse Accommodation is Christchurch's award-winning backpacker hostel, set in the historic former Addington Prison! We are the current author's pick for Christchurch in Lonely Planet and Rough Guide, and winner of numerous hostel awards.

You will certainly remember staying here. Our friendly wardens will check you in, take your mugshot and show you to your cell. However we are now fully equipped with modern facilities like wi-fi, made up beds, secure access, free parking, espresso coffee bar and a travel desk.

Jailhouse Accommodation is the closest hostel to the CBS Arena and AMI stadium for concerts and the Christchurch Railway Station for Tranzscenic Journeys. It's a lovely walk through to Hagley Park, Gardens and CBD Re-Start Mall
