    Room Tips
    "Get a room which looks out onto the street. Little traffic at night or in the morning to keep you awake."
    Read review
    "Rooms are on a busy road, and with window open it is very noisy. Bring ear-plugs."

    "Mention to staff members if a quiet room is required."

    "Probably the best value in Hilo if you choose a dorm room. This is a hostel, not a hotel."
