This was a great place to stay and meet people from all over the world. Everyone is friendly and the staff is knowledgeable of the area. The quiet hours are in place and respect by all. If you are needing to stay up later for a cigarette or some socializing with other hostel residents, there is a social room up...

Personally, I had never stayed more than a few nights here and there in past hostels before, but for some reason decided to book 2 weeks in Kauai at the Kauai Beach House Hostel; and I'm so glad that I did! Brian was the first face I saw and he was as delightful and friendly in person as he was...

Great location, nice ocean view patio. Could do better job of maintaining the property but overall a bargain. Just bring your flipflops and ignore the window situation. Best bathroom is the one behind the check in desk...trust me on this. Mahalo!

Aspects are quite rustic - e.g. it's all natural ventilation. The hostel makes good use of its spot facing the sea. My room was always getting a sea breeze. Friendly staff and generally an interesting cross section of fellow travellers to chat with.

This is my first time writing a review, hate 'em, don't normally pay any attention to 'em, but this experience was such a downer ending for our Kauai vacation. I work in the tourism industry for summer and winters and know how exhausting it is. I've stayed in a ton of hostels and this was definitely a place that had...

I was in a room with 9 beds with direct view to the ocean - very nice! There is a chilling atmosphere in the hostel with relaxing sound in the background - just perfect for holidays. Direct on the other side of the street is the Small Town Cafe :-)

This is one of the cheaper options in Kauai and the location is great right by the ocean. The hostel itself is actually pretty cool but there is very little atmosphere. We just came from a different hostel in Waikiki which had a super welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, to this place where staff could barely pull out a smile...

Aloha to Steffan, we are so sorry you did not have a fantastic time at the hostel. \We are a family business and we were all away on family business and so some staff slipped thru the cracks and gained a spot without a pre-check of their personal qualities. On our return we saw and felt the same as you...

The hostel is located right at the ocean and from my bed I could actually see the sunrise over the ocean - amazing! The place is very open, architecture-wise as well as the people. The staff was very friendly to everyone. All in all, great stay on a great island

Aloha Kauai Traveler and Guest at the Kauai BeacH House Hostel, Mahalo nui loa for staying with us; and your Trip Advisor Review is very much appreciated.

I arrived fairly late for check in and Miles patiently waited for me and shown me around the beach house even it was late! The view is spectacular and all the staffs are super helpful! Everything is really clean and many wonderful eateries are within walking distance. To top everything off, we got hooked up by Brian's friend (Captain Cassidy)...

Aloha Kelvin, yes that is what Kauai and the Kauai BeacH House Hostel are all about, the Aloha Spirit which is what you are talking about. As well, In all the years, none of us ever get "used to" the views in back of the hostel into the Blue Lagoon and over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. You toured...
