Gracious, Simple Living in Paradise
The Waip`o Hostel Kai Room is a cute, bright room with a comfortable queen size bed. It is part of the Waipi`o Hostel.
Waipi`o Hostel is located in beautiful Kukuihaele just one mile from the majestic Waipio Valley. It is a 60 minute drive from Hilo and a 90 minute drive from Kona.
The hostel is the lower level of a rustic plantation house that was owned and inhabited by my grandparents (Grandpa was a plantation supervisor) for 75 years. I call it rustic because it is a simple wood construction which means it has creaky floors and you can hear through the walls. The lower level is a semi-basement but opens up to a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. Our rooms are simple, yet nicely decorated and clean. You will enjoy the wonderful ocean view and the many fruit and macadamia nut trees on the property. We are a "green" facility which is cleaned with non-toxic cleaning products. Our linens and towels are laundered with nontoxic laundry detergent.
Hawaii means insects and other critters - geckos and a few cockroaches, a lot of cocqui frogs. We do our best to keep them under control. So the disclaimer is: if you are not looking for total quiet and you don't mind an insect here or there, and love being in the simple beauty of the Hamakua Coast, this is your place.
Our rates are $45 per night/ $51.04 including Hawaii accommodation tax.
Comment from past guests:
•“Thanks for the coffee- that was very thoughtful. The place is beautiful! We especially like how the bathroom is designed. Lots of nice touches everywhere.” Sean
•“We have had a great and beautiful stay at the Waipi‘o Hostel. Our room had a nice king size bed with plenty of privacy. Even better, we have spent a lot of time in the garden just enjoying the views, the fruits, the smell of nature and the orchestra of the amazing birdlife! The hikes to be done in the Waipi‘o valley were astonishing and very rewarding, this place is just minutes away from the valley. Steve was a great host, fully respecting our privacy and very open and extremely assisting and friendly at the same time. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who would actually want to learn a bit about what living on Big Island has meant in the past and what it means today.” Julia

Unser Aufenthalt im Waipio Hostel war einfach perfekt. Freundliche Begrüssung, liebevoll vorbereitete Zimmer und die Sauberkeit haben uns begeistert. Die Nähe zum Waipiovalley ist perfekt. Wir haben es genossen die Ruhe im Garten zu geniessen und auch die Gelegenheit zu haben in den Gemeinschaftsräumlichkeiten Zeit mit anderen Gästen, mit uns waren Gäste aus Japan, Österreich, USA und Deutschland da, zu verbringen und so auch andere Kulturen kennenzulernen. Es war toll bei Stephen und wir können das Hostel nur empfehlen.
Steve ist sehr freundlich und die Unterkunft hat ein sehr gutes Preis Leistungsverhältnis. Man kann sich auf einem Grill etwas kochen, was viele andere in Hawaii als Küche bezeichnen. Jederzeit wieder. Danke
Stephen is a very nice and helpful person. We felt very welcomed at his place. We had the private studio which was very nice and spacious. also a very good starting point in order to hike the valley, which is very close. Therefore highly recommended!
Great quiet hostel space below the main house. Comfortable bed, fabulous shower, picnic and cooking space with view on the ocean. Stephen was only available briefly, but was smiling and a great host.
They invited us to walk around the property, which has great views on the ocean cliffs, and to help ourselves to some of the fresh fruit growing on the trees -- delicious!
Phillip gave us great directions and was very supportive in getting us there on a stormy night! The space was beautiful and well appointed, there were chickens pecking around the yard, and the view was unbelievable.
He was very helpful in pointing out where we should go, and even asked around to see if he could get a friend to teach us to surf! We had a wonderful time and saw so many gorgeous tree frogs. Great bathroom and super cozy beds- hope I can stay there again in the future!
Nice clean comfy room, a little bit of sound from the person above but not too bad. Generous with the pillows. Fast wifi. Citrus and other produce available for picking on the premises. Pretty view. Located nearby the beautiful Waipio valley, Honoka'a town with little shops/restaurants, and good old Waimea with its characteristic rolling hills. Hostel setup close by, where all the amenities are available, like a grill and food storage.
Stephen's a great guy!
The room was very spacious with a big comfortable bed. Location is perfect! It's near beautiful Waipio valley, make sure to check it out! It's so peaceful out there.
Thank you for everything
