Did I get your attention?
Hehehhehee.... This happened in 2009 while I was in New Zealand for a holiday. After surfing for days and weeks, Andrea and I FINALLY decided to stay in this Christchurch hostel mainly for it's name, history and cost (obviously!).
It's not a gimmick (jail is not farnie business righty? ehheheh...), it was a jailhouse ie for prisoner before this and they've converted it to a hostel for backpackers. And YES, we slept in the prison cell. Hahhahah..... a tad too adventurous right?!
It is VERY well equipped, clean, friendly, helpful and not to forget cheap too. The location is perfect; near the train station, stadium (we gotten ourselves an Il Divo concert tix), less then a minute walk to bus stop and ample parking lot.
No! It's not scary at all, well..... at least NOT at that point of time ;)
