Wish the wifi worked


Nice staff but hostel is a little bit depressing especially the living room. It's situated 25 minutes from downtown and 10 minutes from a supermarket. Not the best hostel that I have but not the worst.


We read some doubtfull reviews about this hostel but frankly I have no idea where they came from. The rooms were pretty spacious (we even had a sink with a mirror), the toilets and showers were really clean. I would walk in there bare-footed no problem! There was loads of appliances and pots and pans in the kitchen. The hostes was really nice and caring. On wednesday she baked a delicious chocolate cake we could eat from and we didn't have to hurry out at all at 10 o' clock.

We stayed at Tranquil Lodge three times on our last trip to New Zealand, the staff are great and the property had improved each time we visited. They are doing a great job of getting things back in order post-earthquake. Quiet, tranquil location in the suburbs of Christchurch, a short stroll into the city centre (would recommend a bus or taxi with luggage though!)


at the first beginning i was kinda startled by the location which takes up 30 mins to walk to.however it is truly a very quiet place. i did have a very good sleep in it. and the owner was very thoughtful, letting me stay alone in a 4 bed dorm, with reading light at each bed. very quiet, warm and safe. if u traveled a lot before, this hostel is a good choice to rest yourself.
