When we resided in tranquil lodge, we found a calm and clean room. The reception was empty often but there was nothing to complain about. We found a large kitchen and many possibilities to sit outside. Absoulutely ok for a short stay.

We stayed here for one night. The rooms are not really clean, it is a bit old. The guy from the reception is really friendly and helpfull. We asked to sleep in for 2 hours extra and that was no problem at all. We didn't even have to pay extra. Christchurch isn't worth staying any longer than 1 night. Everything...

I don't normally write reviews but this place was so bad I have to warn people away from it. Myself and my boyfriend booked 2 nights. We only stayed coz there was nothing else available to change to in Christchurch so short notice. I know it was cheap but that does not excuse a place to be so dirty. What...

It's okay for travellers who don't mind to rough it a little, but overall, the place is pretty gross. It was dirty (no clean carpets), outdoor furniture is broken, the showers are pretty foul (shower shoes a must) and it's a bit of a trek into the city (although that's not too bad, it's just not as central as other...

This is now my second time staying in this hostel. Sadly I'm just about to leave the country today. I've had a good stay at Tranquil Lodge and great value for the money. Graham is such a great guy, he is very flexible, kind and helpful. The place itself is spacious. It's not brand new but I'm not expecting that...

Good price but very dirty. They have a friendly staff but they don't clean the kitchen and the roons! It's far to the best places in Christchurch. The bathroom is not clean to. I'm not recommend. O hostel mais sujo que já fiquei!

This place was definitely not what I expected it to be upon arriving to Christchurch. First off, it is far from the center of Christchurch. Second of all, it was disgusting. I was traveling with three other women and it looked like it could be sketchy and unsafe when it turned into night time. When we arrived, the receptionist/owner was...

Everything about our experiance with this hostel was terrible. When we arrived at this hostel wich we had booked online the reception was emty, but there was someone playing the piano (wich is situated in a really narrow hallway where the rooms where). We stood there for a good 5 mins and after shouting "hello is anybody here" a couple...

Spent our first week in NZ here and it was perfect for what we needed - good value, clean rooms, ample cooking facilities and a good location. Graham the owner is very helpful and friendly. Would recommend!

I stayed here with my gf recently for 3 nights. Had an early morning arrival which was no problem at all, the check-in was very easy. Stayed in a private double, great value for money - good size & comfortable bed. Location is great, just a 15/20min walk into the city. The owner also gave us a lift to pick...
