We stayed at Armott's for just one night. But had a wonderful experience. The girl at the counter was extremely helpful:) She gave us tips and tons of information, she went as far as printing driving directions for us. We did stay in private rooms in the hostel, which I couldn't be happier with cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at....

This was a really neat place. I felt like I was at a 5 star hotel. I only had time for one night but next time I will definitely schedule time to stay longer. The exotic table decorations were clever, beds comfortable and clean. Information was readily available. Great place. I highly recommend.

Arnott's Lodge is a great place to say. I have been there twice and will always go back when in Hawaii. The rooms are very nice and the location is perfect; only one block from the ocean in a nice residential area. The value is outstanding as well. The first time we stayed in a room with a private bathroom...

Arnotts offers simple, clean lodging so that you can spend your travel dollars on fun activities. I've travelled all over the world & small hostels are the best way to meet interesting people too. Highly recommend Arnotts!!

Good service & a true hostel experience. We had booked the deluxe twin room, but it had some problems so the staff kindly upgraded us to the deluxe queen room for the remainder of our stay. The twin room is very tiny, located at a noisy spot near the front of the building, and had a persistent sewer smell in...

Aloha and mahalo for taking the time to review Arnott's Lodge & Hiking Adventures. It states on our website that the deluxe twin room is on the cozier side.

We were only staying in Hilo for one night while on the Big Island and a waitress had suggested Arnott's to us. We were two couples, over 60 years of age and the very helpful Receptionist suggested that we stay in the "Deluxe Rooms" with a private bathroom. We weren't expecting much and that's what we got.

Aloha and thanks for your review. We are constantly upgrading our units and our deluxe rooms are our most popular as these rooms have it's own private bathroom but shared kitchenette. Our price for this type of accommodation is the lowest in Hilo! But we also have our deluxe suite and our 1BR suite at $99 a night. Thanks again...

As others have noted, this isn't a luxury hotel, it's a kind of funky (and maybe a little shabby) lodge that accommodates all kinds of travelers. Our private suite had an air conditioned bedroom with a refrigerator, a living room with a single bed, a small table and two rather uncomfortable chairs, a well equipped kitchen and a bathroom with...

The beds were comfortable and the hostel was clean. The staff was really nice and have great ideas for food and snorkeling. The place had a great vibe and there was an older crowd there that went to bed early and woke up early which was perfect for me.

“The suite in which we had a semi-private room had tile floor throughout so sound travelled very efficiently. If there had been others staying in the suite I probably would have used earplugs just in case others were up and about when I was sleeping, but they weren't necessary when it was only us. The bed was a bit soft, but in good condition.”
