    The coffee in the morning. Only 2 hostels in Hilo, but I would spend a bit more money and go to the other one.

    Yeah, this is a decrepit old building. The roof leaks and there is no hot water. The sitting tables are falling apart and have “don’t use” signs pasted to them. There are MANY homeless people just outside the door/window using drugs and getting arrested. It’s hard to walk on the street nearby. The staff man is quite scary and intimidating. He is ex-military and shouts and swears and is the opposite of a friendly face when you walk in. He yelled at a man for going the wrong way while trying to find the restroom. I don’t think a hostel job is a good fit for him. They also move you beds within the same room during your stay for absolutely NO reason at all! It makes NO sense why you do that. Just shuffling people around. Very dumb and frustrating. I would not ever want to come back to Hilo Bay.

    VERY clean, bathrooms and kitchen. Unobtrusively well supervised for safety , no drugs and respectful guests. Helpful, friendly, welcoming staff. Location great for surrounding area. Good WiFi

    Location extremely noisy. Trade off for convenience and access. Beds not the most comfortable but close to windows for good ventilation.

    Good price, comfortable bed, free parking, free tea and coffee 24 hours a day and some cookies, fully equiped kitchen. 7 minutes walking to city bus stop. Friendly staff. Free warm blanket in case of cold nights in the winter.

    Kitchen is closed from 9:30 p.m. till 7:00 a.m. If you're coming back from excursion in late evening or leaving to excursion in early morning, you just can't take your food from the fridge, because the door is locked. Another "problem" is that there was no soup in the shower and towels are for extra price, so you have to travel there with your own soap and towel.
