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

We have stayed here almost a week now and are dreading leaving! The staff is super nice and laid back. The view from the lanai is beautiful and includes the perfect hammock to relax in! The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is a safe and welcoming place to stay (: I HIGHLY recommend staying at Patey's.

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.

Clean facilities. We even celebrated "Xmas" on Oct 1st ;) so much fun! But they ran out of cups... seems that everyone takes a souvenir ;) and if you're... More

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
