    The hostel met and exceeded my.expectations. Extremely good value with none of surcharges r taxes typical of Kona. Hostel was centrally.located, clean and with good kitchen, toilet and bathing facilities (shower and bath). Towels were provided and there was access to snorkels and.fins. for.nearby beaches. Numerical codes for all rooms gates and services meant good security. I was placed in 4 bedroom air conditioned female.dorm, but only two women ever present while there, so very pleasant

    My friend and I had a GREAT stay at the Kona Beach Hostel! We were in the private suite, which was lovely, with lots of sunlight, nice shower and a private entrance. I am so grateful to the staff — Audrey went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable, including finding another fan for us to keep cool at night, and even bringing a small mattress and sheets for me to sleep on in the secondary room (because my friend snores, so I wasn't able to sleep in the double bed, lol). :)

    Kona Hostel was lovely. I was greeted by Will who got me quickly checked in and made several lovely suggestions of activities to do. That night, I met Devin and Olivia who were also fun, jovial, and inviting to the hostel. They definitely helped make the stay better as well. If I come back to Big Island and Kona, I would stay again. Thanks for running such a great hostel with a good crew, Annie.

    We spent 2 days in Kona Beach Hostel. It's a 5min walk to the center, super close to all kinds of shops, restaurants and bars. Staff was very friendly. We had a private room, quite spacious and clean. I would definitely recommend staying there. There's also a parking lot so quite convenient especially with the high prices of most parkings in Kona

    Staff were really lovely. Kitchen well equipped. Facilities clean though no air con in dorm and nothing but a very slow fan makes the heat quite oppressive. Great location. Would recommend.

    Decent enough, if you consider budget, means budget. A bit of a fusty smell in our room.

    The big room didn’t have air con but 2 extreme loud fans. The French girl from the reception brought two guys in and said: “that’s the biggest room, we do NOT recommend to stay her because it’s warm and big, but the cheapest. This didn’t make me feel appreciated while I was in this room. She also wouldn’t take a post card to put in the mail. Even tho her co worker sad to me, that I can give it to her. The rest of the staff was pr try nice, but this wasn’t a great welcoming for me.
