Hedonisia Eco-Hostel & Green Vacation Rental Lodgings!

At Hedonisia, we continually experiment with ecofriendly practices at our little community in Hawaii which makes us deliberately different from "normal" tourist resorts.

As a result we can offer affordable "green lodgings" for "ecotourists", backpackers and travelers who wish to experience a more down to earth and natural Hawaii than the concrete developed hotel tourism of Waikiki or Kona.

Hedonisia Manager Team - Summer 2013
The Hedonisia Community Members & EcoTourists' Christmas Potluck 2013

Having only ten bed-spaces on 3.72 acres of land prevents us from becoming over-crowded. Our maximum population is 8 - 16 people which allows Guests and Volunteers quiet, privacy and space to enjoy our little piece of Hawaii paradise.

Our Community Facilities are all designed for the tropical environment we live in. Common facilities include a Solar Private Garden Shower, Geothermal electricity, Eco- Laundry, Free Landline Telephone, Wifi and our Eco-Toilet-with-a-Garden View! It's jungle style but hardly roughing it! On the property we also have a nature-trail you can explore that descends into our own volcanic crater.

Our location is very convenient for both eco-tourists and volunteers alike. We are close to many major attractions of Puna and East Hawaii such as Ahalanui Warm Ponds, Kehena Black Sand beach, Volcano's National Park, and many others. The quaint and colorful "hippie" village of Pahoa is only 4 miles away and so is the ocean! is our Eco-Vacation website for short-term stays of 6 days or less.
