    My stay at the Open Gate Hostel was so good I booked extra days after my initial stay. The hosts Dan and Marissa are great, hardworking people that run a beautiful hostel. The scenery is gorgeous, the room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable, and most importantly everyone I met was incredibly friendly. The hostel is a conveniently short drive from the nearest beach and town. Could not recommend more!

    My stay here was awesome! The atmosphere is super chill (surrounded by lava which is cool!:))The hostle has a big bonfire at night which made a great place to hangout and start conversation with new people.The price was cheep for a room and had a lot of activities to do. Near by is a beautiful black sand beach, which is also a nude beach, and a drum circle every sunday.

    I absolutely loved this place. The location is so amazing on top of the black lava, looks like a Mad Max scene. The place is runned by the familly who built it, so the atmosphere is very friendly and chill. Definitely would be back.

    Open Gate Hostel is definitely a solid 9.5 for me. The location was DROP DEAD gorgeous (but don’t actually drop dead because you got more sunrises to see), the people super friendly, the star tower an awesome addition, and the atmosphere just felt so welcoming. Just make sure to bring food, as the nearest grocery store is a ways away.

    1st, let me say I'm not one who usually leaves reviews. However, Dan, Tasha, Marissa; actually the whole crew of OPEN GATE HOSTEL mix their own unique eclectic style with a very inviting & forwarad thinking "everybody is welcome" atmosphere which only adds to the 'Big Islands "Aloha" spirit..which is indeed alive and well! They were genuinely interested in providing both me and my 6yr daughter with a comfortable & enjoyable experience. (Yes, kid friendly!) at an UNMATCHED price.

    I had a great time at Open Gate Hostel. The lava flow is beautiful. It was a great place to get away from the cold weather back home. The staff showed me the hot ponds, which were about 15 minutes away, which were so cool. They are natural hot tubs heated from the lava deep below. I enjoyed relaxing and reading my book surrounded by the amazing artwork.

    I had a quite unpleasant experience at this hostel, with owner acting in inappropriate and unsafe ways. I left after 2 nights, having paid for 5, and am still working to get some of my money back. I think I paid far too much for the value of the stay.
