Hosts were friendly. Access to a kitchen. Clean.
Shared bathroom, smallish room.
We enjoyed our stay!! Thank you for everything.
Rae and Dr. Glen are so nice!!! 2 big bed in room Free Wifi Have welcome dinner with hosts. Free coffee and washing machine. Very clean house.
Little bit hot in the room. There is no TV.
Good location, spacious rooms, good wifi, extremely friendly owners.
Five minutes walk to centre of town with shops and food. Don't bother with the hotels further away.
If you are a light sleeper, take earplugs for the frogs at night.
The owners were very helpful and made sure all my needs were met even going so far as picking me up and dropping me off at my tour group destinations.
The kindness of the landlord and the super-comfortable bed.
A very nice place which feels just like home, awesome staff (and the best bananas you've ever eaten)
A bit expensive for a room with a shared bathroom.
Very nice owners(!) Walking distance to downtown Good WiFi Bananas in the back yard!
Very nicke andere charmant Hosts coqui frogs sing you to sleep
Copui frogs Wakes you up.
shared bathroom crazy frogs making lots of noise all night
The price and location. We did not have a chance to use the spa facilities
The yard wasn't appealing. No common area. Just a place for spending the night, not necessarily for a long stay.
The owners Rea and Glen are very nice and they realy give you the feeling you are their guest in their home.
The owners are very friendly and helpful.
My fiancee an i were looking for some peace and quite, we found it . Rea and Glen were awesome, friendly and just real nice down to earth people.we will definitely go back again.
. We loved the Riverbend House
Room only had a bed; not even a chair. No public area. No amenities. A place to sleep and nothing more.
Rae and Glenn where like family ! They helped me to heal ......
Rae and Glen are fantastic Hosts. The location is walkable to just about anywhere in town. The house is located on a nice quiet street off the main drag so noise was not an issue. Just an over all pleasurable experience in Hilo
The room was big, clean with privacy, and at less than 10 minutes walking from Downtown Hilo, yet very close to the river (you can actually hear it from the room). I had a great stay there, the hosts were very kind and felt like family. There's also wifi and breakfast included.
The wifi connection in the room is had to catch (works with a laptop computer, but not with iPhone because the signal is not strong enough). However it works fine in the common rooms.
