This one of the more lively hostels on the island. Despite the name, it ain’t beachside, and there are other hostels in this block. Some should probably be avoided, and we did not review those.

There’s a big screen TV in the gathering room. The Beachside Kitchen restaurant on site has fairly inexpensive food for Waikiki—nothing over $10. They rent surf or boogie boards and beach floats. There’s no pay phone, but the front desk will let you use their phone for local calls. Lockers available for $0.25 each time you use them or $5 per day for storage—good if you want to access stuff a lot. Bed sheets provided, but bring your own towels (or buy one at front desk for $4, though they are not always available). They offer a free light breakfast—really just coffee and toast, but hey, it’s free.

Dorms house either four to up to eight people. Each dorm room has its own kitchen and bath. They have co-ed or female-only dorms. Prices are $35 for shared (500 sq. ft.) dorms for up to 8 people. Dorms for up to 4 people with a kitchen and no bunk bed are $39. Semi-private rooms (250 sq. ft.) with shared kitchen and bath with dorm are $81. You can rent an entire dorm room for either 4 or 8 people for $152 or $274, respectively. 30-day maximum stay, and you must show proof of travel off island and be 18 years of age or older.

What Readers Have to Say

“I have to write this email to you to tell you how absolutely greatful we are for your Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. It completely made our vacation!! I purchased the book in early August after we had booked an eight-day stay on the island and had read it cover to cover before departing for our trip. Throughout our time on the island, I kept the book with me, and not too long into the trip, referred to it as if it were our Bible. I don’t even know where to begin…it was all so helpful. Restauraunt reviews were accurate and reliable… The beaches….being a maniacal beach-bum myself, I was most impressed and pleased with the information that we had regarding beaches… And the hiking!!!! Great views, as you know and great directions… I could go on and on and have so much to be thankful to you for. Your wisdom and knowledge is invaluable and made our vacation in Kauai most memorable, and as we have often referred to it, “the best vacation ever!!!”
