    I really enjoyed my stay at Pineapple Park Hostel. Annie was a great host who built the place from the ground up with her husband creating a really unique environment with nice common areas and a good variety of rooming options. The place was very affordable and great for its value, and I felt secure during my stay. I got to meet some very friendly and interesting folks at the hostel which was the highlight of my night there, and am grateful I had the opportunity to do so.

    We booked this because our flight was cancelled and we needed a place to stay. It was perfect and restful even though it was New Year’s Eve. I am so glad that we chose this hostel.

    Clean and pretty quiet. My room was on the end (facing highway and I slept OK. I'm a light sleeper. Nice cool location 1600' up the mtn. A little far from the harbor where 2 events I did were.

    This was a cute hostel with a very nice patio view of the beach. The room was very nice and comfortable. The showers are a bit awkward to use since they are stalls in an open space in between the main areas, and there are limited areas to put your things down on, but other than that it was a great place.

    We've been kicked out of the place at 10 am not very nicelly, like we were waiting in the common room before leaving looking out our next step, our room was already free from our stuff and the key delivered. I've never seen that before.. check out for them meens go away from the place not only the room. It seemed to have been a great place before, but the atmosphere was not that great when we were there and it was very expensive for the little room we had and the cars we could hear from it.

    Many reasons I have this score: 1. The manager is very rude. She doesn't know how to talk to customers 2. Bathroom had no locks, was very difficult to prevent sudden sneak in 3. The room was not very clean 4. The location isn't great, you will be too far from every place. At first, I thought Kona has nothing to explore but then later realized it was all about hostel Location. 5. The manager charged extra money for one night stay. I stayed at other hostels too - cheap, clean and no hidden charges

    Booked through Kayak; when I arrived I was informed that their policy was no kids under 18 allowed despite having set this in the search parameters through Kayak. Was turned away late at night and had to arrange very short term alternative lodgings at great expense.
