Home away from home
it is always an experience to stay at the WILD GINGER...i enjoy the sound of the Koki although it wasn't as much as it was a couple of years ago....Personal was positively helpful and i can be a pest at times...this is where i will stay everytime i visit the Big Island....Kitchen available for cooking ...getting in and out of the area is convenient....

Fair 4.0
Everything in Hilo is run-down, including this dive. Filthy. Room came with earplugs - what does that say? Only redeeming virtue is that it is closer to Volcanoes National Park than Kona is.

Home away from home
I booked this for my dad, who stayed in the men's dorm. He loved it. He said it was great. Nice people. Staff would cook food for the guests, including fish caught that day in the nearby river. He felt at home there. No problems like one might find at other hostels. Extremely helpful staff.
