I was there for a wedding in Princeville. I stayed in the room looking out to the ocean on the main floor. Guests were quit staff was helpful. Get ready for the chickens crowing at 545. Kapaa was a great location I will return.

This was my first time staying in a hostel. I spent 2 weeks in a 8-10 bed mixed dorm, my bed was comfortable, the staff is awesome, and you can't find a cheaper place to stay. The hostel has a perfect location, easy to find and a great beach view.

Only 15 min away from the airport, great views (the property right at the beach, you also can star gazing from the rolm/balcony), next to community swimming pool right next to the beach. Close by to many food options (food trucks, and bar are next door). Very easy reservation and check in, friendly staffs.

The entire staff at the Kauai Beach House was fantastic! Everyone was so friendly and the accommodations were comfortable and clean. Staying at the hostel gave me peace of mind knowing I had a safe space to come "home" to at the end of the day. The Island of Kauai is possibly the wildest place I've ever been, which was...

I enjoyed. 9 in my female share dorm. Beds were double in 'home made' bunks - so spacious & more head room than normal- privacy curtain nice touch too! Hostel is an old building but has everything you need. Located in Kapaa with lanai off dorm looking out to palm trees & ocean. Not suitable for swimming but great water...

Thank you for your nice response and comments. We love it here too. The water in back is used by locals who are ocean experts for fishing and diving and frequently we see windsurfers and SUP (Stand Up Paddle) surfers and Hawaiian canoes and kayaks go cruising by. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we welcome you back for...

Had a great time at the Kauai beach house- very suited towards young people, the individuals working at the hostel were super friendly. Was a very communal space. The hostel is pretty big and often full, so you're sharing the space with a lot of people. The kitchen was often crowded at dinner and breakfast times, but there werent really...

Aloha, your nice response is much appreciated. We are planning for a much larger kitchen with 3 times the facilities (cooking stoves, sinks, storage areas) down in the courtyard or pahale. Mahalo Trak

Located right across from the beach and within quick walking distance to shops. Quiet location with no road noise or people passing by. Its a very open plan living space which has people coming and going through all rooms. There is no security here but I felt safe leaving my things in the room. Staff are always around and Brian...

loved this place this place the moment i stepped inside. it's built like a true, blue, bohemian beach house--open rooms, open windows, big common areas. you have no choice but to be social and mingle with your fellow travelers--which is something i love. you've got a spectacular view of the water right outside. three stories of jungle house glory--including a...

Once I got used to the idea that there are no shut doors and no real windows I really, really enjoyed my time here. Laying in my bed, listening to the sound of the waves and watching the sun rise right in front of me...it's a dream! The staff is very, very friendly and they do their best to keep...
