We booked the Lokelani Room because we we looking for a cheap place to stay near the Volcanoes National Park. As you will discover Volcano village has very few places to stay and the prices are over the top. This hotel is really BnB and did the job (provided a bed) but nothing else. You don't get a lot for the money.
The check-in is in a different location, and if you come at night as we did, it is challenging to find (please make a bigger and brighter sign!). The room is in a house from the 20's in good condition and is clean and neat. But the room is very small, and nowhere to put clothes or luggage (no closet). I would not stay here for more than 1 or 2 nights! There is a living room shared with the other costumers and a small kitchen where you can make coffee and have you drinks and snacks refrigerated. But you must bring it all yourself, not even coffee is offered.
There is no privacy. Don't go here for a honey moon or for a romantic get-away. You can hear (and they can hear) everything you do around. The bathroom is shared, but is clean and well equipped; but expect that you may have to wait in line.
You can have breakfast at the check-in building for $6 and after checking the prices of the town I'd suggest you take the offer. It is a simple but good breakfast, similar to any Days Inn. My suggestion to management: include the breakfast in the room price.
Summary: too small rooms, no privacy, but clean and quiet.
