Neatly kept hostel in downtown Hilo is one of the Big Island's best budget crash pads. A young international crowd of backpackers hangs out in the common lounge and kitchen. if you're not up for a shared dormitory, the hostel also rents out private rooms for singles, couples and families. Definitely a bargain, and walking distance from most of downtown Hilo's sights, such as museums and the farmers market.

This is a hostel type lodging consisting of 12 rooms, each with two clean twin size beds. The shared kitchen is well-equipped. The shared dining room has a long wooden table for meals and getting together with friends. There are several shared shower rooms and they all seemed clean. A washer and dryer are also available for use on the premises.
Free Wi-Fi throughout the property. The owner/manager must love birds. There are several colorful ones prominently displayed here. Kids must love them too.
The best thing about this facility besides the low cost is its location. It is situated right inside downtown Hilo, across the street from the Federal Building and Post Office. A small city park with a lily pond is located behind the building.
All the shopping amenities that Hilo downtown can offer are in the area within walking distance.

Hilo Bay Hostel will feel familiar to anyone who has stayed in a hostel before. Compared to the many I’ve stayed in, it’s better than most, albeit more modest. The staff are warm and friendly, making this place welcoming. I loved seeing the tropical birds in the living room and out back. The shared kitchen is large and fully stocked. Complimentary wireless Internet and parking are really helpful.

Some rooms are larger and prettier than others, but they would all work well for most travelers. If you’re traveling alone, just remember that this is a hostel and you’ll be fine.

The location is the winner here. The Federal Building/U.S. Post Office is located just across the street. Walk toward the coast for a few blocks and you’re in the heart of downtown Hilo. The coast is just a few more steps away...

Incredibly for such a small town Hilo has 8 hostels! Of the hostels I've visited Hilo Bay is the nicest in the downtown Hilo area. The hostel is conveniently located right in the center of Hilo.
