Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-Hostel is located in the lush tropical rainforests of the 'Big Island' of Hawaii near the town of Pahoa.

Our eco-hostel is a sustainable community that is soothing, relaxed and quiet; only 10 bedspaces on a property of 3.72 acres with a shared communal area called 'The Barn'.

The Hedonisia property has a gigantic 2-acre volcanic crater with a mini-jungle at the bottom. We have built a trail into the crater so Visitors can explore this part of Hawaii's cool volcanic landscape!

As part of their booking fee, Guests are free to harvest any produce from our various gardens. For instance, we have three different tropical salad greens almost always available for guests to harvest.

Guests enjoy a solar heated outdoor 'jungle shower'. And of course, the most photographed place on the property, our famous eco-friendly 'Toilet with a Garden'! Our fully equipped outdoor kitchen is also popular with Guests and Volunteers alike.

At Hedonisia all Local telephone calls and Toll-free calls are free. Wifi is also free!

Please note that we are not a 'normal' hostel where beds are packed together in one room.

Our 'rooms' are huts or private tents and are spread out on the property giving room for privacy and romance. Hence the name Hedonisia!

Please note that Hawaiian State Taxes of 13.42% applies to all bookings.

Important Information

Hedonisia Hawaii is an Eco-Hostel! This means that we have used our imagination and recycled resources to create lodgings that are quite different from a 'normal' hostel.

Because we Reduce, Reuse and Recycle we actually save money and that is what allows us to offer our lodgings at such low prices. Guests who stay at Hedonisia can rest assured that their stay will have a very low carbon footprint!

However, being 'green' means also that our lodgings are very rustic and natural. If you are the kind of person who likes everything totally bleached and 'clean' like a traditional hostel then perhaps staying in the rainforest is not for you!

However, if you don't mind being in nature then please feel free to visit! We are not a typical hostel and we are proud of that!

We have signs around the property explaining our eco and recycling guidelines. Please respect them.

By learning from our policies on sustainable living and perhaps practicing certain ideas when you are back home will qualify you to be a true Eco-Tourist !

Check-in time is at 2-8pm. We like it when people arrive in the daylight because the property is beautiful and it is nice to get your bearings and look around!

Our Manager is officially off duty at 8pm SO IF YOU ARE ARRIVING AFTER 8PM PLEASE NOTIFY US OF YOUR ARRIVAL IN ADVANCE! Thus we can ensure that a Manager is available to check you in.

If you are renting a car from the airport please be sure to PRINT the directions to Hedonisia Hawaii.

We are a small hostel located in the rainforest of Hawaii. And so, there is no regular bus service that comes here.

If you are not renting a car from the airport then we offer a pick-up service from Hilo Airport for $30 and from Kona Airport for $120. Often flights to Kona Airport are cheaper than flying to Honolulu and then Hilo so check the prices to both airports before booking!

Please email us at with your Flight Number and Arrival Time if you would like us to pick you up from the airport.

This is a Rainforest so please be aware that IT RAINS! However, it is lovely lush tropical rain. Be friends with the rain and you will have a great time here!


- $5 sheet clean fee additional charge for one-night bookings


Please note that Hedonisia Hawaii has a Cancellation Fee of one night for all bookings made through Hostelworld and its affiliated websites.

This is in addition to the 10% non-refundable deposit that is charged by Hostelworld when you make your booking. You may cancel your booking at any time. If you do decide to cancel your booking please let us know and you will only be charged for one night accommodation.

Enjoy your trip to Hedonisia Hawaii! Please feel free to call us at 808-269-2825 if you have any other questions.
