This is a great space for budget minded travelers and who are looking for a safe, comfy and affordable accommodation. The room is in a very humble finished basement suite that my husband and I call home when we are in Hilo. The upstairs and downstairs units have separate entrances. If you appreciate the simple things in life, this space is the place for you. It has privacy, queen bed, wifi, Roku TV, a desk, eating space, kitchenette and a full bath. For $30-45 a night who could ask for more.

While I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Val, I did get the opportunity to meet her husband Loa. He was a phenomenal host and really made me feel welcome. Offered great suggestions for the island and even the island I was going to next. The place itself was more than I could…
