Sustainable Community Eco-Hostel in Hawaii!

I just had a great week doing the Taste of Hedonisia program.  Mojo and all of the managers are super chill and friendly. I stayed at the Guava Hut which was spacious with a big comfy bed- fell asleep to the sounds of coqui frogs and woke up to bird songs. Loved showering outdoors surrounded by trees.

The Hedonisia Hawaii Community has been welcoming 'volun-tourists' and 'eco-tourists' from around the world for over a decade. Whether you stay for a week or a few months you can enjoy affordable 'green' lodgings and/or participate in our educational volunteer programs.

Community based tourism is a great way to live, work and socialize with other travelers. This is what makes Hedonisia so different from traditional hotels where it is often difficult to meet people or be social. On the contrary, many friendships and relationships have blossomed at our community in paradise!

As our model of community based eco-tourism becomes more popular we are receiving an increasing number of returnees!

Hedonisia Hawaii Community Lodging & Volunteer Options:

We offer a variety of community experience options to stay and get involved at Hedonisia. Take a look through our various programs for an option that suits your interests and travel style.

a) Affordable Eco-Friendly Lodgings in the Rain Forest

Relax and enjoy the rainforest! We welcome backpackers, travelers and eco-tourists for nightly and long-term stays in our quirky jungle lodgings!

Our lodging options range from a jungle-style cottage with ensuite bathroom and full kitchen to our more rustic eco-huts made from recycled materials. We also have shared tents, dormitory accommodations and private camping spots.

Voluntourism: Live, work and learn in a sustainable community in the Hawaiian rain forest!

Our volunteer work trade program is based on 'pleasurable activism'! We try to do good work environmentally and through our social enterprise web projects. But we also enjoy our time in paradise with lots of free time to do so!

Unlike many other communities which specialize in physical agricultural work we offer a more varied experience. In addition, to the normal farming and land work as a Hedonisia volunteer you can choose to work with your Body, with your Heart, or with your Mind!
