What an amazing trip! The people were beyond welcoming! Make sure to say hi to Lee!! ; ) The space is beyond central and right on the beach! Check out the photos!! The dorms -especially the girls are great cause they have a lot of privacy!!! I've never had that! Three fridges! Phew! Lots of open space for hanging out... More

If you want to stay at a hostel on Kaua'i, the choice is quite simple... For there are 2 hostels on Kaua'i! The 2 of them are in Kapa'a Town. Here are your options : 1) The International, consisting of a simple building with overcrowded dorms and dark bathrooms... Well, it's enough if you're just looking for a place to... More

After reading the reviews on Kaua'is hostels I was turned off and went camping for the most time on this island. But this hostel is actually a little gem. New people are running it since February, and it seems like they're doing a great job and put a lot of effort into making this place a warm and welcoming place... More

I am a solo, adventurous, broke, friendly traveler and this place was perfect for me! It's a wonderful example of a specific vibe that you either dig or don't. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to chill on the beach, meet good peeps, and launch to awesome outdoors adventures- welcome home. If you're trying for a luxury vacation on... More

Came to Kauai for one week, and chose this place despite the very mixed reviews. Very happy with my choice! - The location is great - every day when I woke up, the first thing I see is the ocean 50 meters in front of me. Right at the edge of Kapa'a town, so lots of restaurants and grocery stores... More

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
