Our guests love the homey feel, laid back atmosphere, super-clean location, and convenient location of our hostel. Our hostel is for travelers only, so we may ask you for proof of departure to show that you are only visiting the Big Island. You will enjoy sharing space, time, and experiences with other travelers like yourself....isn't that what a hostel is all about? We welcome you!

Please note: we only accept bookings for approximately 90-120days forward from today, to preserve the short-notice, short-term nature of our business.

TRAVELERS ONLY -- proof of departure within 30 days may be required upon check-in.
