The Koa Wood Hale is located a little bit uphill in Kona. Beaches and grocery stores are within walking distance. There's a lot of space to hang out, they have multiple kitchens and living rooms. It's also the cleanest hostel I've ever been to. I extended my stay because I had so much fun at this place. Both staff and... More

When we were there, the staff was very friendly and even brought us out on some activities. The hostel is perfectly located, only a short walk from Alii drive with all of its restaurants and stores.

There are two hammock to relax and a large deck where you can watch the sunset. We had an amazing welcome from the crew that work there and they are very helpful to give you... More

I stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it. The staff is very helpful and it was ok clean for a HOSTEL. The location was easy to get to and close enough to the beach and restaurants in Kona. They had a notice board to advertise travel buddy or ride sharing post. The WiFi was free and fast and the backpacker well... More

I liked it here. Better than pineapple hostel. Nice people running it and it's in a good location. The price was reasonable and the people are accommodating. There is a taxi that will take you to the airport for $30 so it's a good place to stay before getting a flight.

The hostel is under new mgmt - I stayed there 2 nights and the staff were super friendly. It was very clean and spacious. Location was tops - close to the beach and bars and action of Kona. The place had an awesome vibe, I loved it and would return in a heartbeat.
