For a Te Araroa hiker staying at the Hone Heke Flashpackers Lodge is an essential experience not to be missed. David and Victoria are totally focused on their guests and are willing to adapt their business to accommodate the changing needs of hikers.
Not resting on their laurels having won many awards they continue to providing an outstanding service. They walk their talk. Many thanks.

David and Victoria are the best hosts you could ask for. They were so accommodating when one of our bags didn't arrive. We had to stay 2 extra days which meant we missed our start group going up to the Cape, but when our time came David was happy to drop us up north to start the trail. When we returned after 8 days trekking we got another warm welcome back. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the cooking, dining, and games area is a great place to meet fellow hikers.
We wish there are more places like Home Heke Lodge as we make our way further down the trail.

David & Vicky, they are Amazing/Genuine people. They’re so welcomed to guests and helping guests out so much. Dave has a top of sense of humors in KeriKeri and Vicky is so heart-warmed person. I was soo glad to stay at their place. When i have a chance to go again in KeriKeri, i definitely stay at here again.

Of course, Facilities are so organized well and tidy and clean. But i bet you feel more than.

Thanks, Vicky & Dave :)

The owners are the nicest, I had an amazing time at Hone Heke Lodge and even decided to stay an extra night. The warm welcome, clean kitchen and bathrooms and cozy dorm rooms made me feel so at home. They are also very helpful if you need anything.

Victoria and Dave provide outstanding hospitality. The Fruju ice block on arrival was a welcoming (and welcome) touch, facilities provide everything a TA walker needs, the dining area is a great space for connecting with other guests, and they are both friendly and helpful (including Dave recommending and dropping us off to the Plough and Feather when we fancied a pizza and pint). Our experience at Hone Heke Lodge can't be faulted- highly recommended.
