    We fully enjoyed our stay at the Kona Beach Hostel. The room was clean and gave us a good night's sleep. The hostel was in easy walking distance from downtown Kona shops, restaurants, bars and beaches. We got to meet other travelers staying at the hostel. Everyone was kind and in good spirits. We would definitely stay at the Kona Beach Hostel again the next time we are in the Kona area!

    We had a great night stay here in the private room. I've stayed here in the shared dorm before and that was an awesome time, too. I have only good things to say.

    I really liked this hostel! The staff was efficient in checking me in. Other guests were kind and respectful of quiet hours. Food prep/storage was easy, no items ever went missing. Location is the best part!! Just steps away from a tucked away beach, a few minutes walking to downtown. Very close to the bike share too. Dorm room wasn't super spacious, but had what I needed for a night passing through. Would recommend, especially for the prime location and easy accessibility into the city!

    Very well situated. Anything is in walking distance. There is enough space and several outdoor areas to settle down. I appreciated it being quite and not a party place!

    A beautiful and well maintained hostel close to central locations of Kona, but some of the staff were very hostile towards us and kicked one of my travel companions out without a proper warning. The place is free from bed bugs atm if anyone read any reviews of that!

    When I checked in the price was $40 more than expected. When I reserved the beds my receipt stated Total price, but then more fees were added. The room was not like the photo on the website. The beds were in an attic room that you could not stand up in, except in a small area by the steps.

    We booked a 4-night stay in a private room, but left that night. The room was not as nice or private as expected, but the real issue was at bedtime we kept noticing black sand-sized dots beside the bed. We looked online and thought it might be bedbug excrement, so we tried to contact the hostel owner. It was after hours and no one answered the phone, which did not have voicemail setup. The next day we were told it was termites and were refunded, however it cost a lot rebooking on short notice.
