South Kona's only hostel is your basic backpacker crashpad, run by a friendly if iron-willed proprietor. A sociable vibe makes up for cramped dorms (No 10 is best) and more comfortable (but still overpriced) private rooms. Look for colorful kayaks out front, between mile markers 110 and 111.
Free Wi-fi, Coffee (every morning), and secure parking lot. Discounted kayak rentals. Beach drop-off with Late Town pickup. Affordable car rental. We are located above the world famous Kealakekua Bay, and very close to the Captain Cook Hiking Trail! Explore the Pacific Ocean with the spinner dolphins and amazing sea life. We also have manta ray snorkeling with a special rate for guests (only $80!). Airport Pickup upon special requests (call a day in advance to make all the arrangements). Public Bus leaves from the Kona airport at 4:50 p.m. (Mon-Sat) towards our hostel. Public bus stop located directly across the street from hostel. Uber, Lyft, and local Taxi services provide service to the hostel at your convenience.
Pineapple Park Kona is located above Kealakekua Bay, offering one of the most pristine kayaking, diving and snorkeling adventures in Hawai'i. We're also located only ten minutes away (by driving) from the City of Refuge, the archaeological site, Honaunau 'Two Steps', snorkeling/diving area, and the popular sandy beach of Ho'okena. A leisurely drive north allows visitors to explore the many beautiful beaches along the Kona coast. A mini-mart, restaurants and a public bus stop are located directly across the hostel. A supermarket, several art galleries, cafe's, restaurants, a coffee and/or chocolate plantation tour are located only one mile away. Short distance transportation is available upon request.
Our guests really enjoy the community kitchen and being able to cook their own fresh and healthy foods every day. They often enjoy their meals when watching the Hawaiian sunsets from our large, upstairs lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There is also a community BBQ grill area to encourage socializing and the beginning of new friendships! If you don't plan to rent a car you can still travel around the island by taking advantage of the free island wide bus service Pineapple Park Kona and our sister property, Hilo Airport Hostel, are both accessible by bus routes. Visitors who are staying with us two or more nights can arrange to hire a pick up at the Kona airport as they arrive (please call a day in advance in order to set up transportation arrangements).
