Just looking for a reasonably priced place in expensive Kona area to casually store stuff while exploring and packing up to leave. The semi-private rooms on second floor provided great access to bath/kitchen/tv amenities without having to share with many random people. I could lock my bedroom door and leave my things behind as needed, without being too far from...

I think the headline says a lot already but I will tell you a few more details: - the room I'm staying in has old carpet with a lot a stains, the room next to us doesn't even have carpet, you walk on concrete - the shower is moldy - in the bathroom ceiling is a big hole, also in...

Need I say more? This place could be great but they need to get their act together & clean out the bugs.

I just returned from a disappointing trip to Hawaii and we also experienced bed bugs (second floor B suite). I had bites all over me and once we figured out that the bites were bed bugs (bugs were confirmed in between the mattress and boxspring) I decided to leave that day (2 days early) There was no sympathy from the...

I spent one night at Patey's Place Hostel/ Hale Koa Wood Inn and had an unfortunate experience with bed bugs which ended up being incredibly painful and itchy. In order to be fair, I don't believe that the whole hostel is infested because my friend and the other guy in our dorm did not get them. However, if you're highly...

The accommodations were adequate and the "volunteer" staff was friendly but the manager Zero was just a rude and unpleasent. he yelled and cursed at the father of the other person sharing our unit for not observing "quite" time even though we couldn't hear him in our room right across from them. He was also very rude. I would never...

My friend and I only spent one night at Patey's Place, and it was good for us. Free parking, free wifi, good info, fairly friendly staff. I really enjoyed the hammock which was perfect for doing a little reading. We stayed in a dorm room which was fine but nothing special. I would probably not stay longer than a night...

The people there were great and I had a great stay....UNTIL I found bed bugs in my luggage upon leaving. When I called to confront the manager about this she was very unhelpful and denied any responsibility for the bed bugs and any chance of them being there, despite one employee telling me they had had experiences with them recently....

I stayed here about a year ago, and i feel comfortable enough to take my 45 year old girlfriend here for her first visit to the Islands. We can afford a hotel but i wanted her to experience a hostel.

Lots of rules to follow but it helps A LOT to keep order. Definitely not a party hostel [no alcohol allowed on premises] but keeps the grounds quiet and peaceful. There are a lot of spiders outside and one crawled into the coed dorm room and bit my leg but it is healing nicely [bugs are just naturally drawn to...
