This is a nice little hostel right by the beach in the city of Kapaa. Close to the shops, bars, restaurants. The staff is very easy going and friendly. Hostel has several mixed dorms, girls dorms and private rooms. Shared bathroom. Free WiFi. Nice patio and upstairs deck overlooking the ocean. Full kitchen facilities. Clean and quiet.

I had been warned of the quality of the Beach House, considering it is extremely affordable and on the beach, but was still disappointed. Compared to other hostels in which I have stayed, even with a private room, I was very disappointed. There was very little space to move around, and 1/2 electrical outlets in the room did not work.... More

It's been over ten years since I stayed at a hostel and I am glad I returned to communal living here. Staff were excellent - thanks Eric for being so welcoming, very clean and full of fascinating people. The front Leota room was perfect to go to sleep to the sound of the waves and wake up at dawn for... More

My boyfriend & I stayed here for one night when our plan to camp got rained out. We tried to get beds at a competing hostel, but they were full. Front desk staff was very nice and accommodating, but this hostel grossed me out. I am not a fussy traveller - as long as a place is clean, I am... More

I had never stayed in a hostel, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I checked into the Kauai Beach House Hostel for 12 days. I can honestly say, my expectations were exceeded. First (and most importantly to me), the place is VERY clean. Second, and equally important, I never worried about my things being stolen or unsafe.... More

I spent two weeks in this hostel and had a great time! The dorms have a great view to the ocean, the sunrise is stunning! Can't beat the view from the rooftop deck - I saw amazing moonrises up there! I'm really happy to see that the staff cares about the hostel and tries to make you feel like home!... More

Great community and staff at the hostel. Manager was very gracious and accommodating. As a girl traveling alone it was great to have like minded people to explore the island and car pool with. Roof top deck with a beautiful ocean view was great for meals and day time hang outs. Huge lawn at beach front right across from the... More

Definitely a great hostel for people any age. It's great value and very clean. Right next to a cute area in Kapaa and right by the highway to get everywhere on the island. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

Definitely worth the price and the stay. There was only a couple douche bag employees but other than that, it was an awesome time. Meet people from all over the world at this hostel. Check out this hostel anytime you're in Kauai.
