I booked one night because of the mixed reviews. I ended up staying four. Great staff and people staying there. It's somewhat central to the island so it's a good base. Not the cleanest but not by any means a health threat. I thought the bathrooms were very clean. I had a great time there.

This place was like Heaven! Clean beds, bathrooms and incredible location but the people who were traveling through, living long term, working there and running the place were all so wonderful. If I could have stayed longer than 3 days on the island before jumping to Maui for a friend's wedding I may have never left. If you want 400... More

While this hostel is one of the few places on kauai to stay for those on a budget, I cannot recommend it to travelers. The place is dirty, the staff is a bit slow and there are roaches. I don't care how cheap the room or bed is, you should not have to deal with roaches near your pillow! If... More

I've been staying at Kauai Beach House a couple of times and every moment I spent there became a memory that will last forever. It's located right on the beach, with a beautiful view that you never get tired of. You don't get only a clean bed, bathroom and all the other good stuff, but also the unique experience of... More

This place is run down. The bathrooms are moldy and stink. The open air room I stayed in... it rained during the night and was windy. The mist drifted directly into the room, leaving me cold and moist. And... being an open air room, I was killed by mosquitoes. There are people sleeping on the couches in the same place... More

Well, there really is no better deal then $30 a night anywhere in Hawaii! For a week I spent $200 on accommodation. Hawaii does not do all inclusive, so if you're going to Kauai to hike, check out the island…I can't see you spending too much time in your "room" anyways!! Spend less, view more! If you have never stayed... More

after 5 days on Kalalau trail I didn't want anything than a hot shower in a clean bathroom, wash my clothes and get connected with the world. This bathroom were not cleaned for month! I'm a cleaner, so I can tell. There is no Laundromat, about 1 mile away from here you could find a 24/7 public disgusting one. And... More

Kauai Beach House Hostel is comfy, simple and supplies all one might need. An awesome view and right on the water, it is an amazing place to wake up in; fresh sweet sea air blowing freely through the rooms. I stayed for about a week and had a really relaxing time. The people I met instantly felt like family. A... More

The literature says that the women's dorm is also a couples dorm, and so it is. If you can put up with that and the lack of privacy (you can see into the women's dorm through the wall in the kitchen) and that the roof leaks badly when it rains (the eating area was totally flooded) (the interior wall of...

I stayed here one night at the end of my Kauai adventure. The place is very open and airy which is really nice and comfortable but do locking doors mean anyone can come in off of the street so keep your possessions under a watchful eye. It has a gorgeous view of the ocean and the staff are friendly. I... More
