    My first piece of advice is DONT BOOK THROUGH THE WEBSITE! They recently changed their policy and you pay more for the room than if you call the hostel directly. There’s also more options for rooms if you call them directly. We paid an extra $12 per night through the website for a mixed dorm. As for the hostel, the kitchen was fully stocked. Really great to have the free coffee in the morning. You definitely need a car in Hawaii but it’s still close to attractions. The staff was really nice.

    Even though the first encounter was a bit unpleasant generally the whole stay in the hostel was great: nice atmosphere, clean rooms and other shared spaces, great ocean view from the patio. I’d definitely recommend this place.

    The girl Sophia who worked there was so friendly and helpful! I booked a night snorkeling with manta ray trip through the hostel who offer a reduced rate which saves you about $70, so I would recommend that to anyone - it's well worth the money!! The rooms were great and there was a lovely covered outdoor seating area with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. I would recommend that you have a car to stay here though as it's driving distance from most places.

    Everything about this hostel was great - except that the Asian woman who runs it is a bit of a nut! Very suspicious of people, makes you feel like a criminal! Other than that I loved this place!! Joe Montaperto

    GREAT HOSTEL. I really enjoyed my time here. It's like something out of a movie; it's like exactly what you would imagine a cool Hawaiian hostel to be like. The common areas are mostly outdoors, which is very unique for a hostel and made it an even more interesting place to be. Also, the owner is very sweet. I'd definitely stay there again if I ever go back to the big island.

    They were very nice and accommodating, just a little outdated and there was not air . The shower area was not that nice. But they did supply nice towels to shower with! The kitchen area was big , but didn’t use. The hang out common area needs to be updated. Overall a good stay for the price they are charging.

    We booked a private room & they gave away our room to someone else prior to check in. We were placed in a random room connected to a corridor with a sliding entrance door facing the street & parking lot. It was “locked” via a chain with a padlock. The corridor had huge windows with no drapes so anyone could just look in. While we were inside, multiple ppl tried to open the sliding door thinking it was the front office! It was creepy & not private at all! It was loud with traffic noise all nite!

    I dont know HOW this hostel has the highest rating on the Kona side!!! I walked in and say I have a booking and get told oh I am sorry you dont I need some sort of confirmation, let me call someone that might know something.. Showers close at 10, oh wait EVERYTHING is closed at 10. My room turns out to be a block glass window that looks into the kitchen and the hallway , so fire happens I die. Ask for a roomkey you dont need one everything is safe, everytime I walked in there was no one ever!
