Lonely Planet review
Hilo's longest-running hostel remains a solid value, with a variety of lodging options. The private and semi-private rooms are ideal for groups. Now that other hostels have sprung up, it's less crowded here, which might be to your advantage. Fringe benefits, such as free Sunday pizza and beer, add to the free-spirited camaraderie. Guests can book tours (eg Mauna Kea) at a discount.
Our independent authors have visited Arnott's Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Hilo.
