  • Very very nice place to see. The garden and the flowers were wonderful and we stayed there a few hours and had lunch at a nice picnic table!  more »
  • I'm so glad we found this place (actual name is Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens). The flowers, the trees, the waterfalls, the views--all incredible! Make sure you visit the orchid garden area. The b...  more »
  • My wife and I have been to this lush hideaway three times and plan to visit again, especially if we have "first timers" travelling with us. The views throughout the gardens are magnificent. Caution: b...  more »

  • This place is one of those "finds" that you to keep coming back to! Very beautiful - its a landscaped paradise, very peaceful and has a great vibe. We have camped a couple of times and stayed in the private rooms a couple of times. Both were nice experiences that we still remember fondly. We were very comfortable and even with the shared bathroom facilities, we felt very secure. And the price? Its a great bargain. A super value with the following caveat: you must like people and be able to gat along with all types of people. This is a communal, group experience and you have to be a down to earth type to fully realize how wonderful this little place on earth is. We plan to visit every time we are on the Big Island, even if its just to have ice cream! Mahalo
  • Stayed there a few years back! Wonderful! Beautiful!
  • Even with Hawaii's rich heritage of friendly people with the aloha spirit, Hilo Tropical Gardens raises the bar to a new level. Although we are frequent Island visitors to Maui and Kauai, this was our first adventure on the "Big Island". We were amazed at the value we received that fit right into our budget, but even more impressed with the staff. With our "twenty Questions" a day on places to go and things to see, they were patient and gave the best advice we could imagine. The room was clean and comfortable and we were so relaxed that we hated to leave. We will definitely be back now that we feel like family.
  • The Hilo Tropical Gardens gives visitors to Hilo a unique opportunity to experience a lush tropical garden setting within a short distance of excellent beaches, snorkeling, and surfing. Regular free bus service makes access to the beaches and to downtown Hilo easy. The atmosphere of the hostel is very cooperative, with those who operate the hostel always ready to give advice on how to best enjoy the island. There are a variety of housing options, ranging from camp sites to dormitory rooms to private rooms at reasonable rates. For guests, there is a common kitchen, showers, laundry facility, and other amenities that make life easy.
  • We spend 1 week camping in this place. The Staff was very friendly and the bathrooms nice and clean. As said we were camping so i'm not sure about the rooms. The Garden in which the single campsites are located is really worth it. Most Flowers and Trees have tags with the name and origin. 5 minutes away from a private style beach. Very recommended.
