A real Life Saver ”

Just what we needed after a very long drive. Room rate very affordable. Late checkin was organized as requested. Even checked out very early for our next league of journey without seeing someone at reception. They phoned us to process our stay. Sorry we had to get out early. No hassle at all. Great staff communication and a delightful short stay. Facilities were clean and surprisingly slept in a comfortable bed. Will stay again in the future.

Great economical stay”

My partner and I stayed here for one night only on our way through Taupo, and it is a well kept lodge with comfortable bedding and accommodating staff. Booking was easy, and even though we arrived just after the check in time, the man at reception was waiting for us with a smile and friendly helpful attitude. They had turned on the heater in our room prior to our arrival so it was warm and cosy. Will happily stay again.

Really Good Stay”

Wish I'd stayed longer. So much more to see and do in Taupo, pity we were just travelling through. Really nice lodge. Clean, well equipped with everything we needed, and helpful staff.

Great clean place with comfortable enough rooms”

Had the queen bed room with shared bathroom. Although my partner would have wished that the windows were not next to the common corridors, we were still fine with the arrangement. Decent facilities with the kitchen and common dining area with a rear view of Taupo from the outdoor seating area. Just a thought, perhaps provide oil, salt n pepper as complimentary condiments besides the coffee and tea? Staff were great and special mention to Morgan who was really accommodating and helpful with some local tours which we were eyeing. Love the hot tub! Keep it up, Haka Lodge!

Hi Alexis, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our staff aim to make your stay as welcoming and enjoyable as possible so it's great to hear such positive feedback. We do have a free shelf in the kitchen, which regularly holds salt, pepper, oil and spices, although during the busy periods these often go missing. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the use of our free hot tub and outdoor seating area. We wish you safe travels and hope to see you again soon.

Loved this hostel”

Stayed here four nights and didn't want to leave. There's quite a bit to see and do in Taupo and the hostel staff were so helpful at helping to organise anything and providing suggestions. The hostel was clean and tidy and everyone was friendly and sociable. Privacy curtains are a great added touch. This is my third Haka Lodge I have stayed in added and I wasn't disappointed.

Hi Rebecca. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with Haka!! We're very luck to have the beautiful Great Lake Taupo as our backyard and it's great to hear you were able to enjoy it as much as we do. Thank you for taking the time to review us and we hope to see you again soon.
