    The property was located close to the ocean which provided cool breezes in the morning and evening. It was very quiet, and the staff was helpful and friendly. A short walk to the beachfront of Kona with a variety of restaurants. A great place to stay on the Kona side! I'm sure I'll book again there.

    Great location and value for the money. There was an interesting incident where I was repacking a suitcase and made a loud noise while moving it around and one of the staff yelled out some expletives about the noise but then proceeded to stay up until early in the morning drinking and talking loudly with some of the other guests. Clean facilities

    This hostel was amazing for the outdoor spaces and hammock and bathroom. My biggest issue was their HUGE ant problem that they do not try to take care of whatsoever. Ant trails everywhere and they don’t try to spray. Loved my stay except for the ants everywhere

    Would've expected some emphasis on cleanliness during Covid times. The pillow cover smelled funky, there were ants all over the dorm, and the bathroom was dirty. I checked out early and went elsewhere even though I had prepaid for a longer stay.

    The manager was incredibly rude to me. They did not respect me as a guest. It was a very unpleasant stay. They only care about the money and absolutely no respect back.
