Why is Haka awesome? I love the Haka Lodge because its a comfortable and exciting place at the same time. Hosting lovely backpackers from around the world who are mostly having adventures and exploring this awesome country. Favourite local activity? Personally I love skating around the city and occasionally relaxing in the parks and coffee shops. Going out for beers or food with cool people I've met. Skydiving at Go Skydive Mercer was amazing! not far from the city and a great experience. Top tip for making your stay a great one? Get to know people, go on random trips with your new friends and make the most of this environment that you're staying in. Haka Lodge attracts some of the nicest and most adventurous people and I count myself lucky to work and live here!
Why is Haka awesome? Having stayed at many hostels around the world, Haka definitely ranks at the top. From great facilities to a wonderful environment, Haka has everything you look for in a hostel. Favourite local activity? I'm a sucker for a great market, so La Cigale is an awesome stop on a Saturday or Sunday morning. For something a bit further out of the city, Matakana Farmer's market is a great day trip. Top tip for making your stay a great one? Take advantage of your time to see as much as possible that this beautiful country has to offer! But don't forget to take a break once in awhile and relax with a beer
