We enjoyed our four night stay at Hedonisia. We stayed in the Kahuna Cabin which has a comfortable king size bed, a table and chairs, electricity, wifi and a nice view. It also has a single bed. I loved hearing the frogs (they are quite loud) and other sounds from the jungle at night. Due to the large screened area... More

When we wanted to book this place, there was no free room, so we asked if we could camp here. This was absolutely no problem, and so we could just put up our tents in a dry area. We were allowed to use all community areas (bathroom, kitchen), and they made us a really good price ($200 total for two... More

To best appreciate Hedonisia I recommend one staying for a while. I have stayed here twice. Once for one month and the next year for three months. I am an experienced traveler and there are few places I have been with such a positive and relaxed atmosphere The property itself is beautiful. There are a diverse plethora of tropical plants,...

I came to Hedonisia planning to just stay for two weeks, but after the first day I knew I was staying as long as I could. I ended up staying there for two months and having the best time of my life. It's one of the cheapest places and you get so much out of it. I met the most... More

We visited the delightful Pahoa district on Big Island this October and we absolutely loved the setting in the jungle that went completely Alive at night with the sounds of bugs and frogs. The first night was difficult to fall asleep, but not really due to the noise made the nocturnal creatures, but due to the fact that our sheets... More

I came here knowing NOTHING about the Big Island, and even less about Puna, the area called the "last true wild west." Fortunately I stumbled upon Hedonisia, a funky hostel with down-to-earth owners and a relaxed, homey vibe to it. I volunteer here under their work-trade agreement, and I love it!!! There are SO many papayas and bananas growing here,... More

Being new to the island I was scared that it would take a while to adjust, but staying here, I believe, was the best decision I could of made. Before my trip, the managers were very helpful and answered all the questions I had. The website is very useful too, and very true in description to the real deal. The... More

Hedonisia is not your usual hostel accommodation; no crowded bunk rooms, and right in the middle of a rainforest! It can be a bit noisy at night, but not with any traffic noise - just lots of frog and gecko calls and the odd rustle if a pig wanders through (don't worry there is no danger from them). I thoroughly... More

This is a really cool place if you're not looking for a luxury accommodation -- that's not an insult! It's meant to say that it's an eco-lodge and meant for a certain mind-set. We stayed in Ocean View and it was great. Comfy, private, roomy enough to unpack. The shared kitchen works out just fine; same for shared bathroom facilities.... More

This hostel was a bit of a surprise, as we didn't expect it to be quite as "eco" as it described, but it was nice. The people were great, and the hostel itself met all our needs. You need a car rental to get places, but I think that goes with all the hotels on the Big Island.
