I normally don't stay in hostels but you can't beat the price at Beach House Hostel. It's in a great location in Kapaa. There are tons of restaurants within walking distance and grocery stores within a short drive I stayed in the girls dorm and really enjoyed it. It could be a little loud because the kitchen is on the...

So I stayed here for 1 night of my two whole nights in Kauai. I feel like I would have loved it if I was younger, I'm 30, and went with friends, I was solo. The location is fantastic. Right in front of the ocean and very central to sight seeing. They even have parking for free! When I couldn't...

The place is confusing to find in terms of where to park/check in. Parking in the back was fine and the location on the beach is amazing. The rooms basically feel like you on the beach. I stayed in the female dorm with double bunk beds. They were good about lights out at 10pm which probably helps with their electric...

Aloha KMATHEM3, thank you for your informative review. Yes our location is unbeatable in the world of hostels...but you shocked me about the WiFi, i was under the impression it was strong in all areas and all floors and al locations on the property. We have invested in so many high end routers and extenders that until I guess recently...

Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, all very clean. Great location in front of the beach and closed to stores and restaurants, good parking, nice people, staff really helpful! Good place to make friends or go with them.

I booked a dorm bed for 2 nights and 2 people. Our "bed" was outside on a Patio but not ready to use, because it was in the middle of the Patio and all People had to cross this Patio to go inside... In the evening we shared one mattress on the floor for 60 Dollar per night. We left...

Aloha to BackPack&Me, May I ask you a question: You stated that you "booked" a dorm bed...etc. Would you confirm back to me that you were told it was a dorm bed. It is certainly reasonable to feel "put out" literally by having to sleep on the patio, even though it commands a beautiful lagoon / ocean view and is...

So, look, this is a hostel. Even if you book a private room at this place, you're still staying in a hostel, and it's going to be a somewhat communal, hippie-ish, hostel-like experience. Pretty much everywhere a person could sleep (couches, porches, etc), there was a person sleeping. That said, I very much enjoyed my stay here. I was in...

Very nice view near the ocean, it is on sunrise side. There is a boardwalk just in front of the Hostel where you can bike or run on the coast. Well placed, 20 minutes from airport, near groceries and tons of restaurants. Well decorated, property is fine, some rules are a little bite stricts (but less than the other Hostel..)...

My wife and I made reservations for a private room, which was not in the computer system upon our arrival. So needless to say, we were forced to wait, while the young untrained staff tried to figure out the problem. We were offered a dorm room, a couch, and even the back porch in exchange, which we flatly refused. When...

Aloha to "The Lovers 69X"; we are disappointed as much as you to hear of your dissatisfaction of our tremendous hostel on the edge of the Blue Lagoon here on Kauai. As to your reservation for a private room not being in the computer, it's an excellent computer program and your lack of a reservation could only have been because...

I arrived to the hostel sometime in the afternoon, and after a quick check-in by one of the members of the super friendly staff (Natalie!) I quickly made myself at home.
