This was a great place with stunning grounds - would have liked to have spent more time here. Beds were small, nevertheless, the place is enchanting. I came between school groups which meant it was very quite which was lovely.

I loved the location! Peaceful and beautiful - if you want something away from the busy city, this is the place! The service was great! Very clean. Beds/dorms are adequate. Just enough for what you need for a short visit. They could have lockers in the dorms if sharing? But other than that it was really great!

Historic roomy mansion with antiques. In park with views and nature. Car needed; free parking. Spacious, clean kitchen and bathrooms. Free pancakes. Beds small and hard. Sheets too small. Fitted sheet kept coming off and flat sheet didn't cover feet. Blankets dirty. Bring foam pad and sheet sack. Floors need deep cleaning. Otherwise everything is surface clean. Must climb stairs; restrooms on different floors. Downtown HI is better for public transportation; this one is better if driving.

I stayed only one night. Arrived by car so can't comment on public transportation but parking was good & felt safe. Being in the park there were few others around. Historic house is nice. Dorm holds about 14 beds, a bit too many but luckily there were only 3 ladies there at the time. The mattress could use replacing, is way too thin. People were friendly, the kitchen was nice & clean, a couple restaurants deliver so didn't need to go out.

Nice to have a place where staff made me feel welcome, lots of common space, and room space. The bed was not comfortable with a thin mattress. Parking is super easy. With a car, it's not hard to get to at all. It's nice and quiet.
