81-6363 Mamalahoa Hwy, Kealakekua

This is a hostel that also rents gear for the beach since it is 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 two shared kitchens. Overall, we found the place to be clean and eclectic, with the private rooms pretty decent for the money, including TVs and fridges. 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 27-day maximum, and they reserve the right to refuse people. The on-site mascot, Lily the dog, is a charmer. Dorms are $35, shared bath private rooms are $80, and private room and bath are $89–$129 (for newer building).
