I booked a dorm bed for 2 nights and 2 people. Our "bed" was outside on a Patio but not ready to use, because it was in the middle of the Patio and all People had to cross this Patio to go inside... In the evening we shared one mattress on the floor for 60 Dollar per night. We left... More

Aloha to BackPack&Me, May I ask you a question: You stated that you "booked" a dorm bed...etc. Would you confirm back to me that you were told it was a dorm bed. It is certainly reasonable to feel "put out" literally by having to sleep on the patio, even though it commands a beautiful lagoon / ocean view and is... More

So, look, this is a hostel. Even if you book a private room at this place, you're still staying in a hostel, and it's going to be a somewhat communal, hippie-ish, hostel-like experience. Pretty much everywhere a person could sleep (couches, porches, etc), there was a person sleeping. That said, I very much enjoyed my stay here. I was in... More

Very nice view near the ocean, it is on sunrise side. There is a boardwalk just in front of the Hostel where you can bike or run on the coast. Well placed, 20 minutes from airport, near groceries and tons of restaurants. Well decorated, property is fine, some rules are a little bite stricts (but less than the other Hostel..)... More

My wife and I made reservations for a private room, which was not in the computer system upon our arrival. So needless to say, we were forced to wait, while the young untrained staff tried to figure out the problem. We were offered a dorm room, a couch, and even the back porch in exchange, which we flatly refused. When... More

Aloha to "The Lovers 69X"; we are disappointed as much as you to hear of your dissatisfaction of our tremendous hostel on the edge of the Blue Lagoon here on Kauai. As to your reservation for a private room not being in the computer, it's an excellent computer program and your lack of a reservation could only have been because... More

I arrived to the hostel sometime in the afternoon, and after a quick check-in by one of the members of the super friendly staff (Natalie!) I quickly made myself at home. People staying at the hostel were extremely friendly, respectful and full of advice ons tuff to do on the island. People staying ranged in age, but that didn't hold... More

It was my first time in a hostel, and I loved this place! The atmosphere was great, everybody, including the staff and the travelers, were very friendly. The place was comfortable, and I was already under the charm of that place after a few footsteps in the establishment. I spent only 2 nights over there, and I was sad to... More

I fell asleep to the sound of the waves, woke up to the sunrise, and felt the ocean breeze through our private patio that was connected to our room. Everything was super clean and people were social. I liked the well-labeled kitchen, too. I loved the style of this hostel, the fact that a coffee truck was across the street,... More

I was on a quick visit in Kauai, and found this hostel easily on the internet (out of 2 in Kauai). Booking was easy and check-in without problems :) Staying at the hostel was comfortable, and the location is amazing, right at the beach!! Best way to spend last night in Hawaii. I flew off the new morning, so had... More
