We stayed two nights and had reserved two rooms. It was a short drive from the Volcanoes National Park so we were able to drive back to the property for lunch. We took advantage of the kitchen. It has a full size refrigerator, sink, and kitchen table. The bathroom was shared with the other rooms on the floor. There were...

So this place was great for us as we hired the entire three floors for ourselves and thus we were not dealing with lots of other people. Rooms and bathrooms were good and clean, the kitchen was smallish, but we managed. It was great to breakfast together and have a casual dinner together with our friends, just a great relaxed...

Beautiful, charming little houses surrounded by hundreds of trees, plants and flowers. Far from any noise except for birds. Plenty of room inside, bathroom filled with toiletries and towels and all premises spotless clean. Highly recommended!

My fiancé and I stayed at the Chalet for one night only, we were highly pleased. The place is really cute and very clean, not to mention the price that can't be beat! We will definitely stay there again, and have already been telling people about it.

We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the volcano park.

Aloha and thank you for taking your time to provide comments and feedback of Volcano Hale. We are happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay and were able to visit the National Park.

Can't beat the price. Comfy bed, plenty of bathrooms (never had to wait.) Warm, attentive service at the front desk. Beautiful grounds, comfortable room, tasty continental breakfast. On our last morning, I accidentally left my handbag in the dining room, and a staff member scooped it up and chased me down! So grateful to Volcano Hale. We'll be back if/when...

This small little gem is located right outside of Volcano National Park in a quiet little town set in a beautiful rain forest.

This is not the main hotel. It's almost like a hostel but no parties. It's a good option if you are looking for something cheap to be near the park. It's clean, has plenty of towels in the bathroom but maybe not enough bathrooms given the amount of rooms on each floor. I stayed in a room on the main...

“Make sure you always lock your door when you're in your room-My fiance and I were walked in on twice while just hanging out in our room. The rooms are clearly marked, but people are nosy. It was a little unnerving. Just a doorhandle lock so I was a little worried about leaving some of our stuff in the room, but overall was a cozy little quiet place to stay the night. ”

“A fun experience renting a little room with bathroom next door. Great kitchen facilities in an old quaint and charming house. Very clean and quiet!!! Nicely decorated. Cozy too!! Easy to find and park. I would definitely stay again. Great little residential area too. Very clean bathroom and updated. Easy to find and parking is good. Large kitchen and room for friends at the large table. Great restaurants and three groceries nearby. Quick deli too at grocery nearby with fresh made sandwiches. Volcano park is a short drive away. We enjoyed our time in this little village very much and survived a storm warning with no problem. A great place to meet other travelers too. Thai restaurant up the street. If you cook inside the house you do need to clean up after yourself. There is a refrigerator that you can keep food cold while you're there. Nice grounds too. You will be surprised to see how beautiful the area is. We would definitely stay again. We checked in in one location and stayed in another. We felt safe and assured that all would go well. You will get a good rest here after a day and evening at the volcanic park. Such an amazing sight. Much more than black rock there as it's located in a beautiful tropical forest. You'll enjoy these nice home stays for sure. Friendly staff and very helpful. ”
