Volcanoes National Park lava flow interior

Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park main entrance is within 1 mile of our hostel. The park is highlighted by 2 volcanoes: Kilauea Crater and Mauna Loa. The most recent volcanic activity is often of keen interest to visitors, and we can give you the latest information. The national park includes alpine, rain forest, desert, and active volcanism. It also has over 150 miles of trails - with several cabins that are free to registered hikers. We invite you to stay one night or center your island vacation at our hostel on "The Big Island"...
