“Great place for the budget traveler!”
Reviewed 26 April 2011

Lots of rules to follow but it helps A LOT to keep order. Definitely not a party hostel [no alcohol allowed on premises] but keeps the grounds quiet and peaceful. There are a lot of spiders outside and one crawled into the coed dorm room and bit my leg but it is healing nicely [bugs are just naturally drawn to me]. I was the only girl in the coed room and it wasn't a problem at all. The beds were comfy [I sleep like a rock anyhow] and the bathroom/living room were all clean. Great location for the price [25 a person plus hotel taxes] Would definitely stay again just would need some bug spray before hopping into bed. If the spider thing freaks you out, try to get the top bed farthest from the window [I slept on the lower bunk right next to the window]

Room Tip: dorms are awesome unless you NEED privacy

We paid $75/night for a private room and the room was super hot and the window was busted. It felt like crashing in your ghetto friend`s spare bedroom. We`ve stayed in hostels around the world and this was one of the worst, even compared to third-world country hostels.

The hostel is located in the suburbs of Kona, but certainly in walking distance to the beach and all the amenities. It is a very unique hostel, but in a great way. I've never stayed at a better cleaned and maintained place. It's compulsory not to wear shoes, which is fine by me. Last night, the neighbors carved up a 450lb pig in their yard. The sunsets from the top balcony are amazing. I've stayed here for 5 days, and I wish it could have been for 5 days more. My taxi driver warned me that Patey's place is located in a bad part of town, but that's BS. It's definitely colorful, but totally safe. A real authentic view of Kona.

This is my first time staying in hostel I'm amaze of how clean and quiet the place is. I can see the ocean from my bed room window, I stay in a private room shared bath (clean bath room), for single 55 bucks (tax included) and I believe extra 10 dollar for additional guest. Very close from Ali'i street which is the central for shopping and dining. Definetly will go back!

I really enjoyed my stay at Koa Wood Hale Inn/ Patey's Place. The staff were very helpful, especially for giving tips of things to see, figuring out the local bus/shuttle and finding other travelers staying there to ride share. They have many rules, but it's all to help keep the place quiet, clean and safe, and to keep peace with the neighbourhood (which I thought was great, as it demonstrates their dedication to running a great hostel). The outdoor music, fishpond and barefoot property all help to create a great atmosphere. Some people I met complained that the place seemed a bit run down, which is true of an older house, SO if you're looking for brand new, top of the line accommodations, there are plenty of hotels and resorts nearby...for everyone else who's here to travel, explore, have fun and just need a clean, safe place to sleep...this place is a great choice.
