The hostel is lovely. Nearby the beach, clean, beautiful, warm and useful. It would have been absolutely perfect with a staff more mature and respectful. People working here where around their 20s and had clearly not a lot of experience in customer service. They gave us a bed on the living room because there wasn't any beds vacant, which is...

I honestly don't understand why this place has so many good reviews. The Lonely Planet description as "ramshackle" is very fitting. Upon arrival I was informed that my bed in a mixed dorm would in fact be a mattress on the patio out the back (facing a shared car park with the restaurant next door). I got the helpful advice...

I stayed here for a week in December in the female dorm. Ive stayed in hostels all over the world and this one met all the standards I look for. I met a lot of great people, and the staff were amazing. They were very helpful to give me advice on things to do and places to go. There was...

Best hostel in Hawai'i. I would have stayed longer if I had the time. Local farmers markets are within walking distance. AND SUNRISE IS STRAIGHT OUT FROM THE HOSTEL!!! I had a blast here! Definitely coming back.

First time at Kauai Beach House Hostel -- and definitely not the last. Staff were all relaxed, friendly, and helpful (shout out to Jeanette). The location is unbeatable, especially for the price. I stayed in one of the larger bunkrooms for a couple nights, and the other guests helped make the experience even more fun while respecting privacy and space...

Great location directly at the beach (where else can you sit up in your bed and see the sunrise?! ;-) ) and close to restaurants, lovely and very helpful staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere... Would definitely go back! :-)

I have travelled the world and I obviously stayed in many many different places. This one is an absolute joke! For your money you pretty much get just a place to sleep, there is no privacy what so ever. One bathroom for the whole place! Good luck taking shower. Everywhere you step there is people sleeping. Dorms have almost no...

Aloha Martin, thank you for your reply to your stay with us. May I please explain what you may not be aware of.

It is clear after personally viewing all those hostels with an...

This was a great place to stay and meet people from all over the world. Everyone is friendly and the staff is knowledgeable of the area. The quiet hours are in place and respect by all. If you are needing to stay up later for a cigarette or some socializing with other hostel residents, there is a social room up...

Personally, I had never stayed more than a few nights here and there in past hostels before, but for some reason decided to book 2 weeks in Kauai at the Kauai Beach House Hostel; and I'm so glad that I did! Brian was the first face I saw and he was as delightful and friendly in person as he was...
