We have different types of dorms: three 4 bed dorm, two private rooms with queen size bed, there are also tents with mattress and linens. We also have the option with AC or fan. Kokua also offers book exchange, wifi, coffee, tea, bikes for sharing and surfboard rentals. We're 50 meters away from the supermarket and some restaurants that offer good local food and fair prices.
