You are close to everything you could want to see. Very authentic Island experience. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Room are perfect with Satellite TV and nice bed in each room.
Positives for staying here: .comfortable accomodations with laundry, kitchen and outdoor dining area. . Our teenagers slept in separate bedroom and shared our bathroom which was clean. Ceiling fans. Relatively new accomodations. Great value compared to older Hilo hotels. Hosts are very friendly. Rooms for several guests. Nice TV's in room. Ice chest and boogie boards available to borrow.
Negatives: No air conditioning if you need to stay real cool. Tends to be noisy with frog and rooster noises but may be no escaping that in Hilo.
