My girlfriend and I stayed in the private bedroom with shared bathroom for 2 nights.
The room was spacious and very clean, as was the rest of the hostel. The location is central with some very good restaurants, markets and the beach all within walking distance. My only comment is that we thought the hostel was expensive compared to other places we have stayed in and even by Hawaiian standards. Apart from that we would recommend.
