As soon as I arrived at Hone Heke, the owners David and Victoria made me feel welcomed and at home straight away and continuously throughout the months I stayed there. They helped me find a job within a day of arriving in kerikeri and were always checking to see if I was doing okay. The cleanliness of the hostel is spectacular and I’d 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay whether it’s long term or short term ! Amazing and positive vibes with an amazing community of workers/ travellers and had some of my favourite memories of my trip in new zealand at Hone Heke Lodge. They also have the most adorable cats Ginger and Rocket ☺️ Can’t wait to be back soon!!! Miss you guys ! - Rachel (sep 2021 - nov 2021 )

Was sad to leave this beautiful place! The owners are lovely people that always look out for the guests staying here. First day we arrived, Dave got us a good job that we ended up staying with for five months. The hostel is cleaned every day, our room got cleaned once a week for us and we always had our designated parking spot available. New World and the town center are just a short walk away, there is a TV room that‘s great to lounge in and we regularly did hostel dinner nights where everybody got together and had a great time. I loved my stay at Hone Heke, I have met some wonderful people here and will miss the hostel dearly. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to come up North for travel and work.
