This hostel is exactly what I needed for my week holiday: perfectly cosy, nice, clean, safe, allowing all the people of the hostel to meet, share, chat and even plan trips together. The family owning the hostel and the staff are very pleasant, helpful, and know a lot about what Kaua'i has to offer. I had an amazing time also... More

I had a fabulous time in the hostel, the staff and owners where extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area and activities. Autumn the owner cares about hostel goers experience and wants them to enjoy the island. I made friends instantly with the guests at the hostel as they were also super inviting. Autumn is a stickler about the rules... More

Autumn and her family and her staff are the best and friendliest bunch ever :) They were helpful in every way possible and my 10 day trip in Kaua'i was amazing because of them :) The energy in the hostel is a perfect balance between serenity and excitement. The location in Kapaa is perfect because Kapaa is a beautiful beautiful... More

I stayed in a private room with shared bathroom for $70. Pricey but considering that the cheapest hotel is $200+, it was a steal. Friendly staff, mother and son running the place. It was clean, quiet, and filled with respectful people. Excellent location, walking distance to the beach, bars, and stores.

We stayed a few nights in a private room. This was small but allright. At 10 in the evening it had to be quiet. That was nice. There was enough space to park your car. The kitchen was good and well equipped. The garden is spacious. But we did not like the atmosphere. The hostel is run by a family.... More

Just like any other thing in life, you get what you give out. No one steals groceries here, we have more food than we know what to do with. We do have up to 34 people using the fridges. All we ask is put you name and check out date on ALL food items. We do go through the refrigerators... More

Absolutely loved this hostel, the best I've stayed in. The family of staff are so friendly, helpful, fun and genuine. The rooms are clean and you have everything you need. The only thing I'd say is the chickens/roosters that roam the island can be a bit noisey depending on where you sleep but I only had dreams about them on... More

This is a small hostel with a very cosy setting, in a garden with fruit trees and hammocks and there is comfy sofas and shaded spots to eat and chill. The beds were comfy and clean though having just one bathroom between quite a few people was an inconvenience on occasion :p Slow paced and easy going feeling but that's... More

I ended up there for 4 nights , largely due to lack of planning on my part, they had space at the moment and location was central and price OK. The good-bedding is washed and smells clean (if stained) and the place is generally clean. They have WiFi that works in shared area and sometimes in the dorms. The guests... More

Thank you for your review. Lets just clear up a few things. First, you showed up drunk and luckily we had space for you. After we showed you your room you passed out on the bed without even putting the pillow case on the pillow or making your bed (not sure why you would even care about the sheets). Every... More

Stayed in a private room for six nights. Nothing special but everything was clean, not noisy, and it was cheap! Within walking distance of restaurants and the ocean. I would recommend for anyone who is coming to Hawaii and not going to spend much time in the room.
