    Great place to stay. The facility was clean and well maintained staff were friendly. Next time I'm in Kona I'll definitely stay there again. Also Aircon was really good!

    Very nice comfortable hostel! Water electricity internet the essentials worked great! They left complimentary coffee in the room! Location is perfect as it’s only minutes away from local restaurants shops and places to have a beverage. Only problem is the driveway is very small and for the price they charge you feel a little bummed out as there’s nothing that really stands out from a hotel or higher end place. You’ll leave saying I should’ve booked one of those hotels instead

    Basic but good value hostel, clean and quiet, just what is needed as a place to sleep on a trip with lots of early starts and late returns.

    A good hostel overall. Great location walking distance from downtown where you can easily access food and restaurants. Gates with door codes offer good security. Facilities pretty clean, with one large bathroom (but it's shared among a few rooms, so if there's a lot of people there will be wait time). Good storage lockers for stuff (small backpacks, not big ones - bring your own lock). And A/C works great in the dorms too.

    Staff was very rude. When I asked about leaving our bag with the staff for the day (after we checked out) she was curt with us about the $20 fee. When I informed her that I would not be leaving my bag she alluded to our bags going missing if we tried to stash our bags in the bushes in front of the hostel grounds. Checkout is at 10am. At 9:58am, while I was on my way to turn in my key, she approached me rudely asking for "her key" We also felt very rushed and crowded by her while in the kitchen.

    Don’t come here if you are a person of color. The host name VICTORIA. I didn’t stand a chance as soon as I parked she gave me the nastiest stare. I waved to try to make peace and this made her even more upset. I walked up to check it and she never once looked up at me, I watched her greet everyone else with a smile and small talk. This place was not friendly, I had to ask for towels and wifi password. She never answers the phone,. She often talk on the phone and smoke cigarettes all day.
