This was our 2nd time staying at Arnotts Lodge, we reserved a deluxe room for 3 nights. The weather was a key feature that weekend, with high surf, crashing waves that we could hear from our room. And the tropical rain, downpours, it was all very chill and charming. We used Arnotts as our Hilo base, (we had a rental car) and loved heading to the store, then cooking breakfasts or bringing home dinner to eat in our common room kitchen or on the lanai outside. Loved the newer ac inside the rooms, and overall we can't wait to be back.

Greeted really warmly upon check in and was showen around the hostel. Had a two night stay in the 2 bed shared dorm.
Shared bathroom and kitchen facilities.
The hostel is in a good location, not far from airport. Free onsite parking and tours are offered along with bike rentals at the hostel.
Washing machine and drier is available. Really love their attention to detail which makes it very homey. Exceptionally clean! Recommend it, and will definitely be staying again!

This was perfect for me during my hiking and camping trip to the BI. They have a great amenities and are right next to a park where you can snorkel. Excellent hosts as well! They're Mauna Kea package is the cheaper too if you stay there.

Aloha and Thank you for your review! We are stoked you enjoyed your time camping here on our beautiful grass camping area! We are proud to be able to provide all the necessary amenities for our guests, including our campers! Most of the time, when camping you don't get as much privacy or access to kitchens, much less hot showers and flushing toilets! We hope you got to see many amazing animals and life under the surface of the water when you were snorkeling! We are also happy that our discounted guest rate on our Mauna Kea Summit Tour was taken advantage of! We are proud to have not only some of the cheapest rates for our accommodations, but also on our tours! We hope that you will join us again during your travels to the Island of Hawai'i!

We stayed there for 4 nights in a Deluxe Suite. It was a perfect stay. Room is perfectly clean and the kitchenstuff is ok (only the pans are not well fitting the herd).
Aircondition works well and the room is very big.
We would definitly come again :-)

Aloha and mahalo nui for leaving us a review! We are happy that you had such a perfect stay in our Deluxe Suite! This is definitely one of our most popular rooms for traveling guests; especially since it has not just a queen size bed, but also a private bathroom and kitchenette! What other hotels can you cook your own meal in your room? We are proud to have an amazing housekeeping staff that helps us keep our rooms immaculate. We would hate to check into a messy room! We welcome you to join us again during future travels to the Island of Hawaii and we hope that you will also consider joining us on our amazing adventure tours as well; Mauna Kea Summit Tour, Volcano Twilight Tour, Frozen Fire Excursion, and many more!

Woah, just woah. Did the Mauna Kea Tour. One of the most amazing things I have ever done. Totally worth the price. And if you stay at the lodge you get a discount. Our tour guide was David, who was the best tour guide I have ever had. He was so professional and so knowledgeable about astronomy, the history of the Hawaiian culture, and the observatories. He made us all feel welcome! I even ran into him a few days later on a completely different part of the island, and he remembered my name, and was genuinely happy to see me! He is awesome. The tour would have been amazing either way, but having him lead it made it a truly unique experience. I even remember some of the constellations he showed us, and picked them out during the rest of my stay on the island, which was just made me smile.
