There is a real dearth of budget accommodation in the Hawaiian Islands so you usually have to suck it up and take what you can get. So with that caveat - there's only two hostels on Kaua'i, or camping - take this review with that in mind. If you stay here make sure you confirm your booking, even though they...

I enjoyed my stay here. My opinion may be a little bias since I've never stayed in a hostel before. I was a little concerned about sharing a dorm with 9 other people, especially being an introvert but it worked well. I was literally only there to sleep and was out exploring and touring during the day. It's very central...

I stayed at this hostel on two different occasions for three nights each. The staff are friendly and constantly trying to keep the place clean. The view from the dorm room are nice, in some room you will be able to see sunrise from your bed if you wake up early enough. They have a bulletin board to offer sharing...

The hostel is lovely. Nearby the beach, clean, beautiful, warm and useful. It would have been absolutely perfect with a staff more mature and respectful. People working here where around their 20s and had clearly not a lot of experience in customer service. They gave us a bed on the living room because there wasn't any beds vacant, which is...

Aloha Zoey, We are sorry to hear about your experience. Everyone getting a good night sleep is our main concern and we do our best to staff only people who are friendly and inviting to work for us.

I honestly don't understand why this place has so many good reviews. The Lonely Planet description as "ramshackle" is very fitting. Upon arrival I was informed that my bed in a mixed dorm would in fact be a mattress on the patio out the back (facing a shared car park with the restaurant next door). I got the helpful advice...

I stayed here for a week in December in the female dorm. Ive stayed in hostels all over the world and this one met all the standards I look for. I met a lot of great people, and the staff were amazing. They were very helpful to give me advice on things to do and places to go. There was...

Best hostel in Hawai'i. I would have stayed longer if I had the time. Local farmers markets are within walking distance. AND SUNRISE IS STRAIGHT OUT FROM THE HOSTEL!!! I had a blast here! Definitely coming back.

First time at Kauai Beach House Hostel -- and definitely not the last. Staff were all relaxed, friendly, and helpful (shout out to Jeanette). The location is unbeatable, especially for the price. I stayed in one of the larger bunkrooms for a couple nights, and the other guests helped make the experience even more fun while respecting privacy and space...

Great location directly at the beach (where else can you sit up in your bed and see the sunrise?! ;-) ) and close to restaurants, lovely and very helpful staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere... Would definitely go back! :-)
