    I had a wonderful, simple stay at Kona Beach Hostel. The staff was kind and prompt to clean as people in my 8 bunk room would check out (I was there for multiple days). The kitchen was clean and had equipment to cook a good meal. It is a walk away from two different white sand beaches and the downtown Kona area. I highly recommend it. But be sure to remind them of the deposit you pay on hostile world so that they subtract it from your total. I forgot to do that and ended up paying $20 extra.

    Really loved the lock system on the rooms and the place was kept spotless and also felt so clean and well kept. Location is prime to the main shops and food. Parking also available and rooms are good sizes! Overall an amazing experience and would definitely book every time If I ever need to stay on the big island !!

    Our stay at the Kona Beach Hostel was nice. The location is great, within walking distance from downtown, but still on a quiet area. The staff was helpful and other guests nice. Not a party hostel, which was definitely a plus. I would go back again.

    Great location and comfortable place! I would say for the price it's not as great of a deal as other hostels.

    Don’t stay here if you are a light sleeper. The kitchen is right next to the female dorms - so it’s pretty easy to get woken up by conversation early in the AM. Atmosphere was lovely. Very close to town. Wonderful staff. Comfortable beds. Clean facilities. I met some great people in the outside cabanas. Overall I would stay here again, but likely in a private room to avoid the noise.

    I would give the highest rate cause the hostel is adorable, but the lady who was doing our checkout evicted us from the facilities after checking out, we still had a couple hours before our flight so we had to stay on the street! Ridiculous girl from Poland, I dont even know her name, but that was ridiculous!

    Very Good

    Property and rooms were nice and clean. Shared spaces were good, bathrooms ok. Obviously the Guests who share the bathrooms don't clean up after themselves. Initial check in not very friendly but most other staff very nice. For a private room, shared bath and facilities it was near $150 a night and they didn't even give us 2 towels, it was not a good value.
