This place was the first we went to on Kauai. We chose this hostel instead of the other one in Kapaa for some reason. Everything was sticky inside, like the walls and tables. We thought at first that it was just because of the humidity on the island. The kitchen is outside, which is nice, but is not so well maintained so there was often leftover food and ants. We did not realize how dirty the place was until we moved to the other hostel in town. It was super clean and rules about cleaning and being respectful to other tenants were enforces.
The dorms were crammed with so many beds and although the hostel's website states that you can have access to lockers for your valuables, all the lockers were already taken.
Most of the staff was pretty rude, clearly not caring about costumers at all. It looks like most staff members were random travelers that were working in exchange of free accommodation. Nobody seemed to be fully trained. There was one guy, tall and blonde, that was nice and new his way around the island. At the other hostel, the staff was much nicer too.More
