The "main" hotel seems quite nice, though very basic. We did not actually look in to any of the main rooms. Breakfast is adequate, and always features fresh papaya. Staff is friendly.
The "hostel" portion is an ultimately depressing shed in a gully by a stream. It is identical to living in an old basement. The stream and lack of windows produces a problem with mosquitoes. However, for the extreme budget traveller, there is a stove and fridge and TV and sitting area of sorts. "Permanent" residents of the basement usually are working in the hotel, and are friendly.
The family that runs the Wild Ginger Inn and their staff, are extremely helpful and easy going. The place has history in every piece of wood that keeps it standing, and The Makai Room (suite) was a stylish and perfect place to stay with my two kids and wife. Thank you Wild Ginger!
Needs update. Dodgy guests. Poor ''free' breakfast
This place gives you the feeling you are sleeping in a jungle somewhere in South America! I thought it was very cool and for the lighter sleepers they provide ear plugs. If you aren't very picky this place is great! It's affordable and there are restaurants and bars right down the road. Totally recommend this place.
I wouldn't bother waking up for breakfast of you want to sleep in. It is free so I wasn't expecting much but when we got there which was still pretty early there were only the ends of the bread loafs left :/ they also have cakes and coffee/tea but there were about a thousand ants by the coffee station which was a little off putting. The floor in our room was really sticky because it had been painted which was a little weird but we didn't really care about that.
Location was good, but this is basic one star, maybe two star accom, Staff were pleasant and garden nice. Also has a laundry,
I think it was expensive for what it is, it should be a little cheaper.
Staff was courteous and accomodating
It was everything I needed
Staff Atmosphere Setting Breakfast
Small rooms Uncomfortable small beds
Staff were fantastic - very friendly and accomodating Staff gave me a ride to the airport for cheaper than the taxi would have cost. Price was amazing. Free breakfast had enough choice to not get boring after a couple of days.
My room was infested with what I can only describe as tiny-ants-with-wings. I would have tried to switch rooms if I've known when I arrived. Sadly it wasn't until the next morning when I picked up by bag, which happened to be place on top of a nest, before I realised. I spent a while getting the ants out of my bag, clothes and belongings. Not fun. No air-con does affect things. With the celing fan on (one-setting only) I was too cold. Without it I was too hot. No wifi in the rooms, and the wifi in the lobby kept blocking my laptop for 'p2p file sharing' when I was trying to watch YouTube for some reason.
Great staf, wish all the best. Like it very much, great place!
We loved it all!!! especially rice pudding for breakfast!!!
I loved the location and the relaxed vibe of the place
Its a bit noisy with people walking about upstairs. It didn't bother me too much but I can imagine other travellers not being to impressed by that
The staff was great, the "feel" of the place was nice.
The noise. I like the frogs, but there were birds roosting nearby and there was noise all night. There was no hot water. This is an old structure and the bed was very uncomfortable.
Pillow needed to be replaced. Reaked strongly of body odor. Mattresses needed to be wrapped in protector. Mold growing on the mattresses.
Can't sleep with the coqui calling from late evening up to next morning. No one clean up my room and change of the towel in my three nights stay. The room is not so clean.
breakfast was great the ambience friendly and helpful staff
Staff was friendly but smiles don't fix it.
In need of serious repairs in all areas! Maintenance personnel were unable or unwilling to address affective repairs. Plumbing issues all week, all 7 days. Only hot water in shower and toilet. Sink stopped up all week, not fixed. I could go on & on, just don't book it.
The breakfast was excellent! Real Aloha spirit. Loved your banana bread.
Typical hawaiian relaxed hotel :-) The staff is soo friendly, great location and very good price :-) I would definitely recommend this hotel :-)
Bugs are too loud :-)
Views, ambiance, welcoming staff, hostel-like environment, non-big-hotel style, easy access to parking lot, breakfast, friendly guests, feeling close to Hawaiian nature, easy airport access, good access to all of east- and south-side Big Island.
General atmosphere, garden, breakfasts, laid back attitude, helpful staff.
about right for the price.
nice location, walk to shops & restaurants, in "old town" away from pricey resorts
No hot water in shower, lights outside of bedroom sometimes were going on & off not, covered well by curtain
Friendly staff and breakfast included.
Quite expensive for pretty basic accommodation.
Helpful friendly staff - no issue locating 2 wine glasses and a beer glass. Well located to enable walking into town shops. Quiet (ignore singing frogs and birds as they are nature) Vegetation Out door kitchen albeit basic but pleasant to have a wine or beer. Free wifi although most of time can only be used in lobby area.
A healthy Cereal included for breakfast would have been appreciated. Buildings and rooms very tied - requires maintenance that could be achieved with major expenditure - EG some effort. Noisy fan.
Adequate facilities for the price, Liked the outside area for sitting outside in the garden, free wifi, Breakfast included in price
Frogs but as the noise os constant wasn't a problem to sleep
The location was great. Walking to downtown is a pleasant stroll in the evening, with a visit to the Farmers Market during the day. The landscaping was one in which your mind could get lost in. Beautiful flowers intertwined among the banana trees with hanging bunches of bananas ripening. I found the staff to be Aloha in every sense of the word, friendly, hospitable and interesting to talk to. The view from the second floor was magnificent. I relished it every day.
The only negative I have was having a musician and his crew in the room right next door. Rolling in at 4:30 am without a care in the world, as if they were the only one's in the building, loud talking, music etc. As karma would have it they took the two pizza boxes with the pizza to their room, which I had left on the chair outside our room as they had been infiltrated by ants, where they consumed it readily.
