If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, this is probably not your cup of tea. On the other hand, if you are seeking a quaint, comfortable, clean bed & breakfast that is centrally located and reasonably priced, you'll definitely enjoy it. The owner was absolutely awesome and the hospitality was outstanding! I would definitely recommend!
Host is very hospitable You feel at home Great location close to attractions and Hilo airport
Mostly minor: Shared Bathroom Fan cooler was not too effective Limited (though great) breakfast
I'm from windward Oahu. Location, climate, and atmosfere is similar. The best of all it was quieter than I thought.
The lady who runs it is wonderful
Really hot room, and a small biting dog. Be very careful to stay outside the fence when trying to get owners attention. I opened the gate to knock on the door, and an angry tiny dog ran out and bit into my shin. His teeth were clamped shut, and touching under the skin, and he was really hard to shake off. I sliced between the two punctures, and cleaned it up fine, but will never wear shorts around crazy tiny dogs again. Great place to stay, but yell from outside the fence, unless you bring a steak.
This B&B is in a great location so that business or leisure travelers can easily get to their point(s) of interest. The accomodations are clean and comfortable. Our host was friendly and informative. I would recommend this to other travelers.
Cynthia is an amazing host. She's very friendly and she made me feel at home. She also gave me very useful info on what to do on the island. She cooks great pancakes! The room was cozy and clean. You will enjoy your stay!
Cynthia was very accommodating and friendly. Beds were very comfortable. Enjoyed our stay!
Didn't care to share a bathroom, but still was very nice.
The house was very comfortable and clean. Everything was supplied for us, including a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit! The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of room for all of our things. It felt like staying with family.
A little warm during the day, but we were gone most of the days anyway.
Well, I booked this guest house, and I arrived at night, so I was driving in the dark, and my first impression of the dark place scared me. But the household Kelly met me up in front, helped me to park my car and let to go inside. I was so impressed how comfortable and really nice were the room and the facilities. Kelly is an amazing person! We have been talking for almost one hour. She's even made me a small present. Everything was clean, and I felt myself like at home. Unfortunately I stayed at this guesthouse only 6 hours, as I needed to go to the volcano at 2 am, to see it at night. That was incredible.
The host (Cynthia) was a doll, always cheerful and helping us out whenever we needed anything, especially when my friend got into some health issues related to his eye. She's always socializing with the customers and establishing social connections between them. The facilities might not be top notch, but she makes up for it in personality, service and price. Me and my friend would recommend Hilo Shaka Shak to anyone staying in Hilo. Oh and she makes great coffee and pancakes in the morning.
Somewhat rundown facilites, but still great for the price. Wifi can also be a bit hit and miss from time to time.
Very friendly and caring host.
This tucked away home for travelers who want to be left alone is perfect. The owner is a delight! We only stayed long enough to shower from our hiking all day and then off to catch our plane home. She was wonderful and sweet.
No wifi in rooms
too far from bus route
Ultimately felt overpriced. Taxes and $20 cleaning fee made it $111 which was really not a great value. Room rate was $78.
Friendly host. Clean
I love the owner, Cynthia! She is a super friendly and kind person. The house was built in 1950's. It's old. That's why I could feel it just like a visiting my relatives. Her homemade pudding and Mauna Loa view from the room window were extra bonuses for us!Thanks!
very nice owner, very good breakfast with pancakes
Cynthia, the owner was lovely and made us feel welcome.
Despite paying a cleaning fee, the place was not very clean at all. Sharing a bathroom with five people felt more like a hostel than a guest house. This was not good value for money.
The place is an older home, but kept clean and simply decorated. The people there are all friendly and it is great for the price. The Lady who runs this place is so sweet and accommodating. she made me feel like a very welcome guest. I even put chocolate in the special requests, just to see what would happen and she showed up with a box of them for us.
The owner is very nice and makes you feel very welcome. There is quite a family atmosphere. The house is very cute and comfortable with large living area and well equipped kitchen. Shared bath was very neat and clean. The location is just at the edge of town, perfect for trips to Volcanoes NP. There's a sprip mall and an indoor mall (just) in walking distance with lots of food choices and supermarket. I only met very friendly people here.
No outside sitting area
room was large and clean. convenient location.
Loud coqui frogs near windows. breakfast was sugared cereal, folgers coffee, unripe fruit.
Great place to stay in Hilo, easy to find and with parking. Stayed in the en suite room which was massive! Wifi available everywhere and no traffic noise at all!
Felt completely safe and comfortable in a homey atmosphere. Cynthia, the host, is a genuinely kind person. We would definitely stay here again!!!
Just a comment that its an old, old house.
This was a last minute find for me, as my wife was in the hospital in Hilo. Very comfortable and owner very gracious. Highly recommeded.
