Stayed here for 7 nights in January 2016, first 5 nights in the female dorm and then 2 nights outside on the patio, because I wanted to extend my stay and the dorms were all fully booked. Dorm was fine, quiet, great view. Sleeping on the patio wasn't so bad either, except (and this is my only point of critique)...

This hostel is quirky with a treehouse island kind of vibe. Very relaxed although the staff were attentive when called from reception phone number/ bell. There is free lockers and storage facility, bring your own padlocks. Our first night we were very cold and we needed to ask for blankets the next day (it was very breezy through the bedrooms...

We were happy with Kauai Beach House, gorgeous location, rooms are nice and open and are kept very clean by the outstandingly friendly and relaxed staff. Community kitchen and community areas are very clean and quiet. I recommended this place to several people I met later on my trip, too.

The location is very nice, and the beds in the female doors are nice and can sleep two people. I slept on top, and had a nice breeze from the ocean. No AC, but I did not need that. The overall state of the hostel is more or less shabby. They do a good job cleaning, but the bathrooms are...

Great location, close to shops and more importantly the ocean! The beds are huge and comfy, staff all around. The place need few renovations but it's nothing that will ruin your stay! Free wifi and a lot of space to hang out outside the dorms.

I can not believe the how uncomfortable the one girl that worked there made us feel . Not sure if she's just bluntly rude or if she can't handle girls staying there. I have travelled to many places and I'm very outgoing I tried several times to try to talk to her. Not sure if she's sleeping with her co...

Apologies if this was one of our helpers, we try to keep an eye on new helpers (an even guests) until we see they are compatible. This girl must have slipped by our scrutiny. We wish while you were here you would have let us know this was happening and/or at least described her or got her name so we...

Kauai Beach Hostel is surrounded by everything you may need while you're visiting Kauai. They have an awesome top deck with a view of the ocean, bus stop right out the front and shops and restaurants within walking distance. My partner and I stayed there two nights before trailing the Kalalau and then came back and stayed another three nights....
