Hilo Bay Hostel

Hilo

Hilo Bay Hostel offers accommodation in Hilo. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant.

Car hire is available at this hostel and the area is popular for snorkelling. East Hawaii Cultural Center is 100 metres from Hilo Bay Hostel, while The Pacific Tsunami Museum is 200 metres away. Hilo Airport is 4 km from the property. I think this place is safe and very comfortable. There are strange people rooming but that is to be expected. The common room lighting is really dark and depressing.
