81-6363 Mamalahoa Hwy, Kealakekua

This is a hostel close to Kealakekua Bay. There are five rooms with shared baths, eight rooms that have their own bath, women-only dorms and a co-ed dorm in a scattering of three buildings with a shared kitchen. Overall, we found the place to be clean and eclectic, with the private rooms pretty decent for the money. There is a phone for local calls available, computer and TV in the lobby. They provide linens, shampoo and soap, but you need to bring a towel or rent one for the dorms. There are lockers available for use. Bring a photo ID to check in. They have no minimum stay but a 14-day maximum, and they reserve the right to refuse people. The on-site mascot, Lily the dog, is a charmer. Dorms are $55–$60, shared bath private rooms are $120, and private room and bath are $150–$170 (for newer building). No one under 18 allowed.
