    Great hostel with a family atmosphere - perfectly located in Kona. The bathroom was super clean, the shower awesome and the beds super comfy! The only thing I missed were lockers which should be a standard. I will definitely come back if I will be on Big Island again.

    We just spent there 2 nights but it was a really clean and lovely Hostel. The staff was quite nice and helped us with everything we wanted to know. The Hostel location is okay, you can reach everything in Kailua by foot but to reach the better beaches you need a car. But there is a beautiful sunset place just 5 min walking from the Hostel - loved it.

    This is the closest hostel to Kona. The staff were very nice, and gave me an upgrade without me even asking for it. I also saved money ($20) on the manta ray snorkelling tour by booking through the hostel.

    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.

    I suppose this is a great hostel to stay in most of the time but they are currently undergoing extensive renovations and construction that were a huge inconvenience. The sound of jackhammers outside my window in the afternoon made napping impossible. I understand that construction is a way to make the place better, but for the inconvenience, they could have done the courtesy of discounting the price. $50USD per night, is way too much considering the inconvenience. I would not recommend this hos

    Not what I was expecting. I’m 6’5” so I got the room with bunk beds. However, the beds were 6 foot long and not very stable. In fact the first night at 2 am with people going in and out all night, I slept in my car. I spent $50 dollars to sleep in my car......also I wasn’t expecting to pay $25 bucks for tax ( not good when your on a budget). The second and third nights were better after paying $30 dollars more for a single bed. I ended up spending $250. dollars for 3 nights.......
