This hostel is huge! There are separate apartments for eight people, 4 in each bedroom, with separate kitchens and bathrooms. Pretty clean for a hostel, with a large upper deck section. They have some parking spaces and are located next to really great restaurants and they are within walking distance to some local beaches.

I stayed 4 nights in a private room. The room itself was very large and pretty empty. No TV or air conditioning. It got hot in the room during the day but at night it cooled down to a comfortable temperature. The room was on the second floor balcony with a view of the ocean. Free wi-fi worked great. The...

This is the place to stay on the big Island. Walking distance to the beach and heaps of food and bars. The staff were super laid back and friendly. They were able to help me out when my bank was screwing me around and also when my friends got injured swimming. Don't go anywhere else.

Loved the atmosphere. Place could be a bit cleaner, but it was not bad. Kitchen was well equipped and I loved hammock outside. Also, it was great to get to use coin laundry on site. Will come back if passing by.

I had a really great time at this hostel. The location is very convenient, the place was clean and had a lot of common spaces. Everyone is very friendly, especially Josh the manager who showed me around and took me to his favorites spots. I strongly recommend!

Great location. No bed bugs. I felt safe, and i never felt like I needed to lock up any of my stuff. The staff was great at giving me advice on which beaches to visit and what was close. No a/c, only fans, but for the price I can sacrifice. Clean facilities. Wear mosquito spray though!

- rude staff. we got no informations from them about the hostel or anything - too far away from stores, beaches, etc. You want to have a car if you stay there - furniture very old - only one bathroom for all the guests (if someone showers, you can't even go on the toilets) - not allowed to go upstairs,...

I left with at least 20 mosquito bites that's not an exaggeration! This hostel is in a great location it's a shame it isn't run better. There were ants all over the small oven and across the benches. At one point during my stay I saw a mouse run through the kitchen. One of the staff members was pushy on... More

I stayed at the hostel for 6 days, w/ 2 nights in a private room and 4 nights in the co-ed dorm. When I had a problem with my room, they moved and accommodated me. The kitchen amenities were important for me as I could not eat out every meal. I cooked food in sufficient quantity to share w/ hostel... More

The staff are great, thanks Ron and Eric for being very laid back, agreeable and well, nice to be around. Molly is super friends also! The rooms are clean, spacious and the bed comfortable. Plenty of kitchen utility and I could always get into a bathroom when needed. Located an easy walk from where the Hele-On bus drops you off... More
