Kona Hostel: Pineapple Park


Pineapple Park Kona is an affordable and comfortable hostel / Hotel in Captain Cook, Hawaii. Our Kona accommodations are located ten miles south of Kailua-Kona and above Kealakekua Bay in Captain Cook. Our affordable Captain Cook inn is ideally located for exploring the west side of the Hawaii island. We are close to Kealakekua Bay, one of the most pristine kayaking and snorkeling places in Hawaii.

Rent one of our kayaks and in ten minutes you'll be with the dolphins in Kealakekua Bay paddling over to the Captain Cook monument where you can snorkel in the underwater refuge the surrounds the sight where the Captain was first mistaken for the Hawaiin God Lono. Pineapple Park is only a ten minutes drive from of the Place of Refuge archaeological site or Honaunau “Two Steps” snorkeling/diving area, and twenty minutes from the sandy beach of Ho’okena. A leisurely drive north allows visitors to explore the many beautiful beaches along the Kona coast. A minimart, restaurants and the bus stop are within walking distance of the hostel, while more grocery stores, a hardware store, art galleries, coffee and chocolate plantations tours as well as a post office are only one mile away. Short distance transportation is available upon request.

Rooms are cozy and comfortable with reasonable rates of $85 for a room with private bath and $69 for a room with the bathroom/shower down the hall. Three nights or more are $75/$60. A bunk in the six-bunk dorm is $30. Annie Park, the owner, lives here and keeps things running smoothly and enjoys “talking story” and giving the place a friendly atmosphere. The guests really enjoy the community kitchen and being able to cook their own heated food and keep it in the big commercial refrigerator. They meet and visit with travelers from all around the world. Enjoy the sunset from the large lanai upstairs looking out over the ocean. There is a BBQ grill in the patio area and a video player in the community kitchen.

If you don't plan to rent a car you can still travel around the island by taking advantage of the free island wide bus service. Pineapple Park Kona and Pineapple Park Hilo are both accessible by bus routes. Click here to see a bus schedule.
