We were 4 female hikers island hopping. When we arrived at Kauai Beach, I wanted to leave. The room I had reserved was dirty, the mattresses were bare and dirty and there was a sliding door with no curtain -- absolutely no privacy! My friends talked me into staying but I never felt comfortable. The location is lovely - beautiful... More

Okay , so I put this a 5 star, because I truely loved my experience. Although I do not recommend it to the "fussier" travelers who are attached to their confort and tempur mattresses. To start, the staff is super friendly and make you feel part of the "family" right when you check in ! They make you feel like... More

The Kauai Beach House Hostel is truly one of a kind, in the BEST possible way! I stayed in the female dorms, which offer queen sized bunks, with privacy curtains, as well as an attached balcony and ensuite bathroom. The balcony is oceanfront, so you can wake up to a stunning sunrise every morning. The common areas are well-maintained and... More

After camping for 8 nights it was such a relief to find a reasonably priced bed for a few nights. What I did not expect was to find such a friendly and fun environment ! The staff here are awesome. They treat you like a long lost friend from the moment you step in off the street. Highly recommend to... More

The Kauai Beach House has a view like no other. Good people, amazing staff and a real Kauai experience. I highly recommend. There are male and female dorms, also mixed. Full kitchen and lots common area space to hang out.

Exactly what we were hoping to find in a beach hostel. Slightly run down but has such a colorful character to it. Cleaning was done every morning. Very open concept. Some dorm rooms and some private rooms including the Blue Lagoon where we stayed. Highly recommend this room. Ocean view and woke up to the sunrise every morning. Stayed for... More

For the price they charge you would except cleaner rooms and a place that was not put together with plywood. The walls weren't even finished and the screws were showing. No ceiling was put on and you could see the boards of the floor upstairs. The room they put us in had two doors and people could walk through to... More

We read many bad reviews on this but booked it anyway. We got there and they showed us what room we were going to be in. It was the one on the bottom floor right in front of the outdoor lounge. There are no doors on this room and everyone can walk through. Also people smoke on the deck and... More

I have stayed in many hostels across Canada and US. This I'd the worst! The bed looked like something that someone pulled of the roadside. The rooms were dirty and sheets very old. Pillows flatter than a board. We had reserved online. When we expressed a desire to get a refund, the staff was kind and gave us a full... More
