Haka Lodge has a fantastic, community feel from the moment you walk in. We love the custom, creak-proof wooden dorm bunks with built-in storage and the 2nd-storey barbecue deck beside the spotless, modern kitchen. Check out their recipe for pikelets (thin crumpets) on the wall of the kitchen. Comfortable lounge with beanbags inside, volleyball net, hammocks and spa pool outside.
