Budget options on Kauai are limited, this being one of only 2 hostels on the island, and almost half the price of the next cheapest hotel. If you are young, single, enjoy dorm life and being a hippy beach bum then this may be the place for you. If you enjoy privacy and security in your room, then probably not...

I have stayed here twice now and it's always amazing. Great vibes, quiet after 10 if you need to sleep but can be social in the front without disturbing anyone. The staff are really nice!! It is also 100 yards from the ocean and there's an amazing beach 5 mins away on foot!

I stayed at this hostel for about 16 nights. I found it to be in a good location being central along the east coast and good access to the south and north. Amenities such as banks, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, laundry etc. were all within walking distance. Car and bike rentals were also close by along with the island bus...

Travelling on a budget, I really wanted to not miss out on anything - and I think the experience was super for the price at this hostel! Because it was simple it was actually an awesome chilled vibe and encouraged people to be social and get out around the island. The hosts / staff know what theyre talking about with...

We reserved a double bed in a 6 bed dorm online in advance of our stay. Our bed was not ready when we checked in, but the staff was very accommodating and gave us an overview and tour of the hostel. For the price, you can't beat it in Kauai. The bed itself was comfortable, and the room was kept...

One of the few hostels on Kauai. Definitely worth staying here if you are looking for an affordable place to sleep and hang. Just like rest of Hawaii, everyone is super nice and friendly/helpful. As hostels go, its about what you'd expect, ok amenities and cleanliness. However, it's quite large and has a very nice deck on 2nd and 3rd...

There is a real dearth of budget accommodation in the Hawaiian Islands so you usually have to suck it up and take what you can get. So with that caveat - there's only two hostels on Kaua'i, or camping - take this review with that in mind. If you stay here make sure you confirm your booking, even though they...

I enjoyed my stay here. My opinion may be a little bias since I've never stayed in a hostel before. I was a little concerned about sharing a dorm with 9 other people, especially being an introvert but it worked well. I was literally only there to sleep and was out exploring and touring during the day. It's very central...

I stayed at this hostel on two different occasions for three nights each. The staff are friendly and constantly trying to keep the place clean. The view from the dorm room are nice, in some room you will be able to see sunrise from your bed if you wake up early enough. They have a bulletin board to offer sharing...

The hostel is lovely. Nearby the beach, clean, beautiful, warm and useful. It would have been absolutely perfect with a staff more mature and respectful. People working here where around their 20s and had clearly not a lot of experience in customer service. They gave us a bed on the living room because there wasn't any beds vacant, which is...

Aloha Zoey, We are sorry to hear about your experience. Everyone getting a good night sleep is our main concern and we do our best to staff only people who are friendly and inviting to work for us. If you would like to tell us which staff member specifically who was not acting in a mature or respectful manner we...
