          Hekerua Lodge has a very homey vibe and the fact that there are so many long-term guests and friends who come back goes to show just how inviting and friendly an environment it is. The owners and staff are awesome. Wish I could have stayed longer but I will definitely be back :)

          I had an amazing stay at the Hostel. It is cozy, charming and welcoming. I felt immediately home although I just stayed two nights. Nice people around who are all good connected. Seems more like a big private house. Very loving decoration all over the place. It's just amazing and definitely the best hostel I've been to in New Zealand. I really recommend this place!

          A really nice social hostel, went during quieter season so it wasn't too busy. Really clean and eco-friendly. The kitchen was really small though, I can imagine it being a pain in high season. pretty close to the beach and a small convenience store, while countdown is a bus ride away. Wi-Fi was good

          Very good atmosphere and the location is also good, but there are some cons: There was no wi-fi available during my stay and no towels available! I had to wait until get dry naturally after shower. It was the first time that I satayed in a hostel that doesn't provide wi-fi nor towels (I've already stayed in more than 40)

          Thank you for your review. We apologise that the Wifi was down while you were here - one of the perks of living on an island. We do offer free highspeed Wifi which normally works very well. As for the towels. We ask all guests to bring their own as we are limited in our water resources to wash them. Many thanks Thomas

          It feels like a flat that you've lived in for years. Homely and welcoming, the array of people from across the globe that congregate there are a testament to the adaptability for a casual backpacker to larger travel groups. Highly recommend, and great value for money.
