This is the best hostel I've stayed at. I stayed in the girls only dorm for 4 nights. It's directly opposite the beach. The bunk beds were huge and had 8 to a room but still felt private. Lights out is 10 and it's quiet , you actually get a good nights sleep at a hostel which is not something... More

Stayed here for 7 nights in January 2016, first 5 nights in the female dorm and then 2 nights outside on the patio, because I wanted to extend my stay and the dorms were all fully booked. Dorm was fine, quiet, great view. Sleeping on the patio wasn't so bad either, except (and this is my only point of critique)... More

This hostel is quirky with a treehouse island kind of vibe. Very relaxed although the staff were attentive when called from reception phone number/ bell. There is free lockers and storage facility, bring your own padlocks. Our first night we were very cold and we needed to ask for blankets the next day (it was very breezy through the bedrooms...

We were happy with Kauai Beach House, gorgeous location, rooms are nice and open and are kept very clean by the outstandingly friendly and relaxed staff. Community kitchen and community areas are very clean and quiet. I recommended this place to several people I met later on my trip, too.

The location is very nice, and the beds in the female doors are nice and can sleep two people. I slept on top, and had a nice breeze from the ocean. No AC, but I did not need that. The overall state of the hostel is more or less shabby. They do a good job cleaning, but the bathrooms are... More

Great location, close to shops and more importantly the ocean! The beds are huge and comfy, staff all around. The place need few renovations but it's nothing that will ruin your stay! Free wifi and a lot of space to hang out outside the dorms.
