In order to stay overnight at Kalaupapa, you need to be sponsored by a resident. There are very limited accomodations in Kalaupapa, consisting of former patient rooms, visitors quarters, and a few beach houses. The accomodations are adequate but basic. Some quarters have shared bathroom facilities, and some are quite rustic.
When you stay in Kalaupapa, it is due to the hospitality of your sponsor. You take what you are given, and appreciate it for what it is. Luxuries are not found on this island, and you are visiting the people and the place, not looking for a resort weekend.
