I stayed for five nights in a semi-private room at Arnott's Lodge. The staff are very friendly, as are other guests which produces a great atmosphere. Its location is also great, near some awesome beaches and the free bus service to Hilo.

We stayed June 9-13, 2011 in one of the Delux rooms. It was excellent. We made good use of the shared kitchen and library. I would stay again. The front desk girls are very helpful.

Thank you for making my cycling trip to Hawaii unforgettable. Your welcoming smiles and helpfulness allowed me to cycle 576 miles over 12 days. I've seen incredible scenery and met some amazing people!

I had a great time staying at Arnott's Lodge. Arthur (our tour guide) to the Lava was a excellence guide. The Lodge's common area was a great place to meet and talk with the other travelers. The DVD's movie room was a nice place to wind down during the evening.

We had a private building that had great peaked ceilings and it was very clean. We had a kitchen and large bathroom and it was very quiet. We joined a tour that the lodge offered to the top of Mauna Kea (which was AMAZING!). The location is close to the airport and it was very affordable. Much better than any hostel I've stayed in for a similar price.

fair price and depending on the season you get flowers and birds outside.my friend and I both rented a room there and it was good we had a livving room and kitchen to use.there was also a gazeebo with a large screen tv that played movies.the swiming area wasnot even two minute walk away. I recomend arnotts lodge for those on a budget or those that don't stay in all day long.

Great staff, location, washing facilities for clothes and people, just the best camping we had in all the 4 Hawaiian islands we camped at on this trip. Super staff, we were lucky and even got Avocados straight from the tree for breakfast! A professionally run, superfriendly place that should get more people both for the rooms as well as camping they offer.

We took one of the in-house tours up to the volcano and it was excellent with Mike the guide giving us plenty of information and bubbling over with enthuisiasm for Hawaii, the environment and it's people.
I would go back to Arnott's again and would recommend it to friends.

I wanted to send a very overdue THANK YOU for everything the Arnott's team did to enhance our stay. We were the group of 14 cyclists who invaded you at the start and end of our fabulous Big Island tour between Oct 9 and 20. You have such a unique property that provides a remarkable place to stage such an adventure. During our previous (5?) stays my husband and I have never been there on a Saturday night, so to enjoy TWO beer and pizza nights was a real unexpected treat. To be able to deliver our bikes and store our boxes was customer service truly befitting the Aloha spirit. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when in Hilo. -Sheila and Russ

This place was good value and they have everything you need. We stayed in a deluxe room which had nice firm matresses - something rare in a hostel- anyway i slept really well. the location was not bad....you can rent bikes and visit the beach nearby.

we also took their tour to the mauna kea telescopes. our tour guide was Eldridge - who was most informative. he knew a lot about the area, history, geology, astronomy etc. he took great care of us.

Arnott's Lodge & Hiking Adventures offers a dormitory bunk, and semi-private rooms with a shared bath, kitchen and living room for very low prices. They also offer inexpensive hiking and snorkeling excursions in the Hilo area. If you are adventurous and don't mind staying in a hostel, then I would recommend this place to you.
