They provide free transportation to the hostel if you stay for two or more consecutive nights. Location is pretty good because it's near the pacific tsunami museum and 5 minutes walk from the bus terminal.

It's a good laid back vibe, well furnished (tastefully), Comfy beds and lounges, and directly across the road from the cinema with $2 movies. And there is an ATM and bank basically next door.

This is a great hostel that has an atmosphere suited to all types of travellers. The manager is very helpful also. Hilo is great place to base yourself whilst on the Big Island.

A nice, clean hostel with friendly staff. The area around the hostel can seem a little unseemly at night, but that's Hilo. Appreciated the free airport pickup.

The hostel is nice and clean. Unfortunately the town is quite boring and there is not much to do there. I think there could be more bathrooms and not just one for so many pepole. Otherwise it's a nice place.
