We stayed 4 nights in Doug and Sue's appartment.
They welcomed us the first day and gave us the keys and explained everything. They are a wonderful couple.
The appartment/room is as you can see in the pictures, wide, clean and confortable, and in Hilo Downtown. But you can park your car in the street without restrictions.
What I love about the place is that it has its own door to the street and private lanai. So you don't have to enter in somebody's home to get to your room.
The house doesn't have wifi, but there are couple of places near it (mcdonalds and starbucks) where you can get connected.
The only problem we saw was the noise of cars during the day (fortunately it decreases during the night). The house is facing a busy street in Hilo and you can hear the cars very loudly.
Before booking this place we did a research and the hotels in the area are very old and expensive, so we think this is a great place to stay in hilo.
Doug and Sue's space is located incredibly conveniently (a VERY short walk from the bars and restaurants in Hilo) and is a comfortable place to sleep 2-4 people (2 twin beds, plus a futon in the living space). The place was extremely clean and had some great outdoor spaces, including a front porch and a very cute breakfast nook with a great street view with the mountains in the background. Doug and Sue were friendly, super easygoing, and reliable in terms of communication. A minifridge, coffee machine, and free coffee made the morning very easy. This is a great choice in Hilo! Only one note: if, unlike us, you travel with valuables (laptop, etc.), you should definitely make prior arrangements to store them securely; we felt (and were) perfectly safe, but the aforementioned nook is so great because it opens right into the common space without windows or a real lock, which made the space breezy but also not the best place to leave expensive gear. This aside, though, this is a great budget spot that easily and comfortably sleeps 3-4.
Our stay at the Quirky Cottage was great. We enjoyed having 2 separate rooms with our 2 kids & having 2 decks was a nice surprise. Very warm welcome & suitably clean simple place.
Douglas was a gracious, friendly host and provided everything we needed. His place is centrally located on one of Hilo's main streets. Thanks, Douglas!
Doug was there to greet us when we arrived, even though it was raining and late in the night. He was very accommodating and flexible. Definitely recommend the place for its prime location in downtown Hilo.
We had a fabulous experience with Doug--such a cute, clean place and he was so welcoming and easy to get in contact with! Perfect location too, we walked almost everywhere. Would definitely stay here again!
Doug and Sue were very hospitable and welcoming. The location was perfect for me- within walking distance to downtown Hilo. I would definitely recommend this hostel!
