    If you are looking for a social hostel that makes you feel like family, then this place is for you. The owners, Tom and Aubrey, were extremely accommodating and even made a family dinner for all the guests. Leo, the manager, answered all my questions and was a great resource. I had an amazing stay and would recommend to anyone visiting the island.

    Really good location. We had a comfy twin room. Can't use facilities including showers after check out which is a minor inconvenience. Jacuzzi empty but plenty to do otherwise on the island. Staff gave us good info.

    Really enjoyed the Hekerua Lodge. I was only there for a weekend and most of the other guests were long stays who were living there while working ok the island, but everyone was super welcoming. It calls itself a party hostel and certainly did not disappoint me in that! A really lovely spot that I absolutely recommend!

    Cute hostel in gorgeous surroundings close to the beach. Quite cliquey atmosphere as many people stay there long term so not great for a solo traveller. Having said that the staff were all lovely and welcoming.

    Had a lovely stay on the island. Luckily I was in a group as it was quite cliquey. Would have been difficult as a solo traveller. The staff were helpful and nice but I did hear someone being shouted at for being in the shower for too long. We were told multiple times to keep showers to under 2 minutes which is difficult when the water takes a while to heat up.

    I would not recommend this place if you care about hygiene. There was no soap in the bathrooms and I saw many people either not wash their hands or just rinse with water (ew). There was never any toilet paper. The kitchen was gross and the sink was always clogged with stale water in it. There is no microwave. The female dorm door is glass so people can walk by and watch you sleep. No lockers and none of the doors were ever locked. Overall poor experience.
