A bit difficult to access if you travel with lots of gear 🙈 but you can get a taxi from the ferry for around $15. Room of 4 was really small but everyone was well organised so all good. Except from that good hostel with a great atmosphere. Great communal areas where you can't not socialise. 👍🏻 Wish I could have stayed longer!


Had a great time at Hekerua lodge, friendly, clean and great fun. Would recommend to anyone going to Waiheke to stay here. Good facilities, friendly staff and the rooms were spacious and clean. Free wifi is always a bonus also free tea and coffee. Nice pool and hot tub too.

After five minutes here I already felt like family. The welcoming and cleaning staff were friendly and truly cared about the quality of the hostel and each person's experience there. Tina and Johanna in the office were very approachable with any questions or recommendations. I ended up staying at Hekerua longer than I intended and wish I could have stayed even longer. The Monday night community dinners are not to be missed. Any backpacker coming to Waiheke will find a home at Hekerua.
