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.

Stayed: January 2011, travelled on business

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!
