The Beach House Hostel is unique in many ways. There is a gorgeous view of the ocean and coconut trees and a long and wide lawn that can be enjoyed by all the guests. Secondly, the staff is amazing: funny, warm, patient, informed and accommodating. My sister and I stayed in a private room for six nights, and went to...

This place has some mixed reviews but I think it is all about expectations. There are limited hostels on Kauai and this place is pretty good. Great staff, location, sun deck, wifi, chill out area. There are little lockers to lock valuables away and the luggage store seemed well managed. Yes there are sometimes people sleeping on sofas and sofa...

Aloha and Mahalo (thanks) for your great review; and yes our Whale Watching / Blue Lagoon views are spectacular from our 4 large view decks and all 4 dorms and 2 or our private rooms. You made a good point about the sofa beds, yes, we are 1 of only 2 of affordable places to stay on Kauai. There are...

Great hostel with great people, the staff was awesome! The staff designed a custom version of giant jenga for us all to play and we had a blast. My friends and I got up for a 5am hike to see the sunrise from sleeping giant and Ron from the front desk joined us on a whim, we picked up his...

We had a wonderful time there and meet really cool people there. We sleep outside on the porch and can hear the ocean and of course the chickens. Kapaa Beach is really nice and clean and you can rent a bike to ride the way beside the beach

Aloha and thank you for your nice reply. I grew up in summers sleeping on a porch but the sound of the waves was too far away, here the waves, sunrise, and moonrise are right in back of the Kauai Beach House Hostel. Thank you, Jay

First visited in 2000 for our honey moon and great to see that the experience, service and food prep and quality are still extraordinary, best meal of the trip! Crab cakes and Ahi roll amazing and we split the kale salad and Mahi Mahi.

This hostel is oceanside and good for spectacular sunrises. My wife and two teenagers just needed a place for one night and were put in a room, sort of a porch, with a bunch of others. It was easy to catch the bus from nearby to carry on to our final destination of Kalalau Beach. There are plenty of restaurants...

Trak T, Guest Relations Manager at Kauai Beach House, responded to this review

Aloha Thank you for your candid response. As your wife already knows hostels are not for everyone but certainly OK for families. Hostels are mostly for young happy people looking to meet others and make new friends. Many people use hostels only for sleeping as traveling is about exploring, of which Kauai can take 2 weeks of all day fun,...

Budget options on Kauai are limited, this being one of only 2 hostels on the island, and almost half the price of the next cheapest hotel. If you are young, single, enjoy dorm life and being a hippy beach bum then this may be the place for you. If you enjoy privacy and security in your room, then probably not...

I have stayed here twice now and it's always amazing. Great vibes, quiet after 10 if you need to sleep but can be social in the front without disturbing anyone. The staff are really nice!! It is also 100 yards from the ocean and there's an amazing beach 5 mins away on foot!

I stayed at this hostel for about 16 nights. I found it to be in a good location being central along the east coast and good access to the south and north. Amenities such as banks, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, laundry etc. were all within walking distance. Car and bike rentals were also close by along with the island bus...

Travelling on a budget, I really wanted to not miss out on anything - and I think the experience was super for the price at this hostel! Because it was simple it was actually an awesome chilled vibe and encouraged people to be social and get out around the island. The hosts / staff know what theyre talking about with...
