Great location directly at the beach (where else can you sit up in your bed and see the sunrise?! ;-) ) and close to restaurants, lovely and very helpful staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere... Would definitely go back! :-)

I have travelled the world and I obviously stayed in many many different places. This one is an absolute joke! For your money you pretty much get just a place to sleep, there is no privacy what so ever. One bathroom for the whole place! Good luck taking shower. Everywhere you step there is people sleeping. Dorms have almost no...

Aloha Martin, thank you for your reply to your stay with us. May I please explain what you may not be aware of. I have also travelled the world and have stayed in way over 200 hostels in both world famous cities and beach type locales over many years. It is clear after personally viewing all those hostels with an...

This was a great place to stay and meet people from all over the world. Everyone is friendly and the staff is knowledgeable of the area. The quiet hours are in place and respect by all. If you are needing to stay up later for a cigarette or some socializing with other hostel residents, there is a social room up...

Personally, I had never stayed more than a few nights here and there in past hostels before, but for some reason decided to book 2 weeks in Kauai at the Kauai Beach House Hostel; and I'm so glad that I did! Brian was the first face I saw and he was as delightful and friendly in person as he was...

Great location, nice ocean view patio. Could do better job of maintaining the property but overall a bargain. Just bring your flipflops and ignore the window situation. Best bathroom is the one behind the check in desk...trust me on this. Mahalo!

Aspects are quite rustic - e.g. it's all natural ventilation. The hostel makes good use of its spot facing the sea. My room was always getting a sea breeze. Friendly staff and generally an interesting cross section of fellow travellers to chat with.

This is my first time writing a review, hate 'em, don't normally pay any attention to 'em, but this experience was such a downer ending for our Kauai vacation. I work in the tourism industry for summer and winters and know how exhausting it is. I've stayed in a ton of hostels and this was definitely a place that had...

I was in a room with 9 beds with direct view to the ocean - very nice! There is a chilling atmosphere in the hostel with relaxing sound in the background - just perfect for holidays. Direct on the other side of the street is the Small Town Cafe :-)

This is one of the cheaper options in Kauai and the location is great right by the ocean. The hostel itself is actually pretty cool but there is very little atmosphere. We just came from a different hostel in Waikiki which had a super welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, to this place where staff could barely pull out a smile...

Aloha to Steffan, we are so sorry you did not have a fantastic time at the hostel. \We are a family business and we were all away on family business and so some staff slipped thru the cracks and gained a spot without a pre-check of their personal qualities. On our return we saw and felt the same as you...
