We picked this hostel for its location so that we could stay closer to the park. We weren't expecting much except for a place to sleep and eat. However, this hostel was so charming that I left with a strong impression. The building was built by the Japanese owner and you can see that he put a lot of love and thoughtful touches to the place. Just look at some of the photos I took. We both agreed it was like stepping into grandma's house, rustic and relaxed.
The dining room was the most comfortable part of the hostel. It has a kitchen stocked with all sorts of condiments, coffee/tea, dishes, and utensils. All free for use as long as you clean up after yourself. There's also a computer for you to surf the web. It felt great to start the day sitting in the sunny dining room with a hot cup of coffee.
The rooms were comfortable and cozy. The bathrooms are clean and they provide towels. Our room was right above the garage so in the morning we could hear the comings and goings of the hostel's guests as well as the owner's family. The walls and windows are thin here since in Hawaii no one really worries about insulation for the winter.
