We did the Hump Ridge Track few days ago. It was a nice track, the forest, especially on the first day is wonderful, giving you the impression to be in a other world! The lodges are good, we were glad to find a wood-burner to warm up and the hosts were really nice and attentive.
But some negatives points must be mentionned. First the lack of time indications along the track can gives you the impression of a never-endind walk: you don't really know where you are or how many time you have to walk to reach a point. The time of walk for each days is a bit long so a time indication could be really useful. Besides we deplore the lack of shelters and toilets along the way. The shelter on the second day is badly located (you reach it after 2 hours of walk and have to walk 5hours without a place to stop or go to the toilets). It's worse on the third day as you have no shelters or toilets at all. You could hope better because of the price!
Some parts of the track could be better maintained: fallen trees and big wholes of mud (if the second day is rainy, be prepared to be completely full of mud!).
Even so, it's a good track, we really enjoyed the forest (unfortunatly we missed the views because of the clouds), the lodges (and the porridge!) and the hosts. It's good way to spend 3 days, in couple or with friends. A advice though: go there with a good weather so you could enjoy the views and save yourself from the mud!
