The Beach House is a great place for the budget traveler. I made my arrangements through their website. Make sure you confirm check-in times and driving directions from the website before arriving (my mistake). I attempted to call the listed numbers, however it was only an answering service referring you to the website (a person did not pick up).
When coming from Lihue airport, it's a bit tricky to find, especially if you're new to the area, in the dark and heavy rain like my situation! But note after passing the big Kapaa ABC store on your left, start to slow down & look for Scotty's BBQ and pull in to their lot. The Beach House is right next door, but the entrance to their back parking lot is through the BBQ's lot.
The front part of the property is where folks are allowed to smoke and listen to music late. Keep in mind this is a separate area from the sleeping/reading/kitchen quarters, which are smoke free and have a 9:30 pm lights out. Nice, since I had a super early flight.
Oscar was the main staffer I interacted with and he was very helpful and courteous. I stayed on the top floor in the bunk bed dorm and got a clean set of sheets when I checked in. The beds have curtains for privacy, and there are a number of bathrooms to accommodate everyone. The full baths downstairs are clean and new. The lanai view is breathtaking. The kitchen is fully equipped and they have refrigerators for your food. Be sure to keep food OUT of the sleeping area. Critters came into some food that I thought were in a sealed container, but I didn't seal it all the way. Best to be safe. (A grocery store is across the street.) Overall I had a very positive experience. I was looking for a cheap, safe, clean place to sleep -- and I got it plus the location was absolutely gorgeous. I was apprehensive because I was a solo female traveler, and some of the reviews for the Beach House ran the spectrum from terrible to fabulous. However, I am happy to report that this was an excellent bargain that I plan to return to again.
