This is a fantastic hostel. The staff are super friendly, and go above and beyond to make sure you have a great trip. They took a bunch of us out snorkeling, lent us snorkel gear, and then when I left my sweater behind they shipped it to me the next day. (Thank you so much!) It's close to the beach,... More

I've been around the globe and this is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Clean, comfortable and in a great location (close to supermarkets and the beach). Not to mention the stellar staff that ensure everyone has a blast! I couldn't help but continuously extend my stay.

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.

This hostel was very clean and very accommodating to us. It is very well located in a quiet side street not far from the shore. 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
