    Great hostel in a great location which is an easy walk to downtown Kailua, Beds are comfortable and staff are friendly and helpful. Good atmosphere with ample outdoor covered areas. Good place to stay and would happily refer to others.

    The staff was so kind and helpful! I accidentally booked/showed up on the wrong day and they accommodated my mistake without a penalty!!! So grateful for this -- not to mention the friendly welcome when we got there. I would highly recommend this place to budget travelers who want to be near the center of historic Kona!

    I learned that Kona Beach and Pineapple Park hostels have the same owner, and both places are outstanding. And certainly a great option when cost is considered particularly in a high cost destination. Great staff, secured, and clean. The difference between Pineapple Park and Kona Beach is the location. Kona Beach is surrounded with fancy neighborhoods. But Kona Beach can certainly hold its own, and actually a welcome variation - simple, basic, cool! I am hoping that I can come back soon.

    Great little hostel, would definitely recommend. If your traveling alone or on a budget this place is an excellent option, right in town and walking distance to all, clean and reasonably quiet (the people who slam doors are rude but nothing some ear plugs can’t fix). Would consider staying again if I’m traveling alone. Thanks for a great week!

    The beds were comfortable. The place was clean. It was just a bit noisy and hot. Wondering if a portable air unit would be a better option than a fan. Just an idea.

    Very Good

    The place was nice. We booked a private room with two single beds on hostel world but when we arrived we were told they didn’t have rooms like this so one of us had to sleep on the floor. We were also surprised by an extra $14 USD charge for only staying one night. $140 USD for a private dorm at a hostel seemed highly expensive and I would not stay here again for this price.

    Great location and clean but that’s where it ends. “Air con” is simply noise - doesn’t actually cool the room. There’s no really common space to meet people just a bunch of random smoking decks. No place to hang things up and very few toilets for the number of people. They didn’t see I had two bookings back to back (made literally a day apart months ago) so tried to make me check out and check back in to a new bed (top bunk) which was ridiculous as I had been there 5 days and was staying 1 more
