The Space

The Lehua Room is a cute room with two single beds. It is equipped with a sink with hot and cold water.

Waipi'o Hostel is located in beautiful Kukuihaele just one mile from the majestic Waipio Valley. It is a 60 minute drive from Hilo and a 90 minute drive from Kona. The hostel is in a rustic plantation house that was owned and inhabited by my grandparents for 75 years. I call it rustic because it is a simple wood construction which means it has creaky floors. If you are not looking for total quiet and love being in the beauty of the Hamakua Coast, this is your place. You will enjoy the wonderful ocean view and the many fruit and macadamia nut trees on the property. We are a "green" facility which is cleaned with non-toxic cleaning products. Our linens and towels are laundered with nontoxic laundry detergent.

Our guest rooms are called "hostel style" but are really private rooms. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and with great beds. They share a common area with couches, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, cable TV, wi-fi, patio with gas grill (with a burner for cooking) and table, and a plantation style bathroom.

Comment from past guests:
•“Thanks for the coffee- that was very thoughtful. The place is beautiful! We especially like how the bathroom is designed. Lots of nice touches everywhere.” Sean
•“We have had a great and beautiful stay at the Waipi‘o Hostel. Our room had a nice king size bed with plenty of privacy. Even better, we have spent a lot of time in the garden just enjoying the views, the fruits, the smell of nature and the orchestra of the amazing birdlife! The hikes to be done in the Waipi‘o valley were astonishing and very rewarding, this place is just minutes away from the valley. Steve was a great host, fully respecting our privacy and very open and extremely assisting and friendly at the same time. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who would actually want to learn a bit about what living on Big Island has meant in the past and what it means today.” Julia

""Due to the nature of the hostel business, owner reserves the right to assign an alternate room of equal quality in the event the requested room is not available""
