I stayed here with my partner after new years and booked the double room. I originally wanted the ensuite room but it was taken =( The room was alot smaller than I thought, with a double bed and two small side tables and nothing else. It was pretty hot through the whole day and evening in there so you'd need to crank open the little window. The one thing I didn't see on the reviews (which would've strongly swayed my decision on staying here) is the rooster that will crow at 5am every day for a few hours and wake you. That sucks. Other than that, pretty cool place with large outdoor area with BBQ, awesome pool, deck, and spa. The long-term guests at that time were friendly as well (thank god). The owner seemed nice.

- Welcome to our small social backpackers on the magical Waiheke Island, the island of sun, wine and fun! Only 35min from downtown Auckland.

The Hekerua Lodge Backpackers is centrally located secluded on an acre of stunning New Zealand native bush, only 5 minutes walk form Little Oneroa Beach and another 10 to the shops We cater specially for the international youth travel market, a place to meet new people, laugh and dance in paradise, so if you wish to socialize and have fun then the Hekerua Lodge Backpackers is the place for you!! We offer a chilled spot to get away from it all and immerse yourself in island and backpacker life. We have no TV so relax on any of our sun decks, take a dip in our rock pool or just wash it all away in our spa pool.
