We stayed in the hotel part of the facility in the only suite. It had two beds and our own bathroom. we were at the end of the building with a great view of the ocean. The grounds had very pretty plants and trees. The other people that were staying there were very nice and so were the people working... More

The room is OK, but great for the price. The breakfast is awesome. Location is great. There is a nice garden with many fruit trees. A great place for couples if you want to save some money with the hotel rooms, but not a good place for families.

What a great Hostel! The rooms were cute and clean, and the price was right. Located on a beautiful property, right near the heart of downtown, yet so peaceful and quite. The staff was so inviting and kind, I honestly had a hard time leaving. Will definitely stay here if I'm ever in Hilo again.

If you are after a resort experience the Wild Ginger may not be for you. Targeting the budget and more adventurous traveler Wild Ginger and its lovely staff (Merly, Al, Paul and the unstoppable Aunty {Mahalo}) cater for those of us who do not expect white sheets and tiles. But if you would like a family friendly staff and atmosphere... More

This hostel/hotel located close to Hilo airport and Hilo center was our 44th stop on our trip around the word. The family room we had was comfortable enough to stay in for the night. We did not expect much more as this hotel/hostel offers rooms for relatively low prices. During the day we explored the Big Island, which is absolutely... More

We stayed one night in a private room--perfectly serviceable as a private room in a hostel. The vibe here is great, Aloha-friendly, nice simple continental breakfast in the morning, great location within walking from town.

Rooms a bit rough around the edges but our overall stay was great. Delicious free breakfast and great staff. Clean kitchen to cook in. We had a private room with bathroom for $70. Walking distance to downtown shops and waterfront.

We had such a wonderful 4 days stay at the Wild Ginger in Hotel in Hilo, that we wanted to share our impressions with you. The Wild Ginger In Hotel is a really authentic and quiet place not too far from Hilo airport, that makes it an ideal hotel to come and discover Hawaiian volcanoes. The place was clean and... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place. It reminded me of "I love Lucy" times. I stayed in the hostel where my bunk had a nice view of the ocean. And there is a nice courtyard full of fruit trees which they harvest for breakfast along with home baked cakes, etc. In fact, on one trip to Hilo i... More

I stayed here for a couple of weeks while traveling around the island. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a budget hotel with continental breakfast and a public kitchen area. The service is prompt, and the setting is beautiful and relaxing. The peaceful seating area has fast internet, and a very pretty view of the trees... More
