For travelers inspired by the Aloha spirit...

E’ Komo Mai (Welcome) to the Big Island Hostel!

Conveniently located in historical downtown Hilo, we are within walking distance of many local restaurants, shops, the famous Hilo Farmers Market and the Hilo bay front.

We look forward to your stay!

We have two dorm style rooms one coed and one female only. Each room has six extra long memory foam twin beds.


All rooms have air conditioning and unique features. Cleanliness is our priority, and we supply fresh sheets and towels.

Lani Suite Semi-Private.jpg


Our coed suite has six extra long memory foam twin beds and it’s own en suite bathroom, which it shares with one private room.


This suite has air conditioning, extra closet space, and room for luggage, plus is a bit more private than our dorm style rooms.

Wow! One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Super cute and clean, very well appointed, good location. Comfortable beds. The hosts are helpful and welcoming. The place has a great community feel.

This hostel was so clean it was like a hotel!! The staff member that managed the front desk was super kind and helpful and had all of my sheets and blankets folded neatly on my bed for me when I was coming in at 1am! They also have a bunch of appliances in the kitchen for use which was super convenient. I would definitely stay here again next time I go to Hilo!

We were here for 6 days and this hostel is probably one of the nicest I've ever experienced. The staff is friendly, open-minded, the furnishings are modern, comfortable and clean, and the toilets and showers are also very good. It is close to town and everything is easy to reach. If you want to experience Hilo and Hawaiian culture, check in here. I would like to give 6 stars. :)
