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... More

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... More

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... More

Unfortunately slightly hit by the earthquake so some repairs were happening, this didn't disturb us in our stay at all though. The manager was an incredibly kind man who actually gave us a lift to collect our camper van in the morning. It was a little way away from the city centre but walkable. Unfortunately there isn't all that much... More

We stayed 2 weeks on this hostel in June 2013. Graham, the owner, is a friendly guy who help you everytime! Our room was cleaned but there isnt a kind of daily housekeeping, so after 3 or 4 days it's could be a little more dirty. Great thing, they give you a heater!! And trust me it's really usefull!!!!

We opt for Tranquil Lodge on the first night arriving in Christchurch because it's the cheapest we can get before getting our awesome Spaceship campervan the next morning. The host was really nice and friendly. The private room was basic and clean with a little sink so that's great. Location is not the most ideal especially if you don't have... More

Whilst this hostel is still recovering from the damage caused by the earthquake last year, the staff made every effort to accommodate to the guests need. There is a really relaxed vibe at this hostel, and I greatly enjoyed my 2 night stay here. I wanted to stay there again when I was back in Christchurch, and despite attempting to... More

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm 22.50 NZD. Rooms are dirty. Floors unswept walls and ceiling are cracked. Collection of pizza boxes on closet. Dirty mirrors and dripping sink in room. Facilities are messy. Showers dirty - found three types of dead insects and lots of dust on the clothes shelf, shower head broken so be prepared for a vertical... More
