Best Hostels on The Big Island, Hawaii, for Backpackers and Solo Travellers
Jump to:
The island of Hawaii, or the "Big Island" takes up more than half of the area of the state of Hawaii. It is a very beautiful and fascinating place to visit. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located on the island as are the famous mountains of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

The two main towns on the island are Kailua Kona (often called just Kona) and Hilo. Kailua Kona is on the western side of the island and is known for its good weather and beautiful water. Hilo is on the eastern half of the island and is another popular place to stay.

Accommodation in general is expensive in Hawaii, but there are a couple of hostels on the Big Island that offer affordable options for budget travelers and backpackers. If you're looking for a simple, comfortable and social place to stay, then a hostel might be your best bet.

A good hostel in Kailua Kona for backpackers, solo travellers, and couples.

76-6241 Alii Drive Suite 5, Kailua-Kona
My Hawaii Hostel is located in the town of Kailua Kona. It's an affordable and comfortable place to stay that offers anything a budget traveler might need. The hostel is centrally located about three miles south of the center of town and it offers easy access to several of the area's most popular beaches along Ali'i Drive. From the hostel you can walk to all kinds of restaurants, coffee shops, and beaches.

The hostel has several great areas where guests can relax. There's an indoor/outdoor lounge that is the perfect place to hang out and meet other guests. There's also a self service kitchen and barbecue area if you want to prepare your own meals. This can dramatically help with travel costs as food in Hawaii can be quite expensive. There's also a secure area where you can store your bike, surfboard, or luggage.

The hostel has double rooms as well as four and eight bed dorms. Female only and co-ed rooms are both available. There are shared bathrooms or en-suite bathrooms available and every bed has its own security locker. Guests also have their own reading lamp, fan, and comfortable bedding. Rooms are air conditioned and the hostel also has wi-fi throughout.
