We arrived without a reservation but were able to check-in spontaneously for 2 nights. The staff was really friendly and you could rent snorkeling gear for free. The rooms itself were 200 meters away from the main office but with free parking. All was clean and the hostel provided a nice living atmosphere.

Stayed there two nights, should've slept on the beach or in rental car. The room was not cleaned in the last month or so. Garbage was still full from last guests, toilet seat was broken and we all had bed bug bites the next morning. It's a great location only if they would put some of their money into the...

Full kitchen and fridge. Friendly staff and lots of equipment available to rent: bicycles, snorkel gear, surfboards, bodyboards to name a few. 5 minute walk from a Grocery store and cluster of food trucks. Craig, one of senior staff at the hostel, stands out as a start staff member. I broke a couple surfboard leashes, and significantly damaged one of...

Read all for the whole truth.... I stayed on the north shore at the backpackers hostel for 1 week in February. On my last day I tried to extend one night so I could travel with new friends back to wikiki. They had no rooms available so I told craig who is manager I'd probably sleep in a car on...

Loved this laid back set up, felt like home very quickly. If you are looking for a place to connect with people and hear the waves at night even from the cabins on the other side of the beach, this place is a pearl. Feels more like a community then a hostel set up. Dorm rooms are good enough, cleaned...

We, a family with two children, are very happy that we chosed this place for our stay in North Shore. The owner and staff are very serviceminded and friendly, and we liked our family room with two double beds, a small kitchen and balcony w sea view. Free parking and wifi. We had a car and it was very easy...

well, maybe not cheap, but affordable, especially for north shore and especially during the surf comps! Awesome beachfront location at Three Tables Beach (studio room). Very basic, low gloss room and facilities but suited mum & 3 teenagers. We loved the norht shore, the beach front room, riding the bikes to Pipeline & Sunset beaches, the food trucks, and the...

we were a group of 11 people and booked the main house of 3 bedrooms with two sets of bunks in each room, dorm style. There were two bathrooms with a shower and toilet in each room. We had the entire house to ourselves as we booked for 12 people, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and lounge. The house was located underneath...

It´s hard enough to find ANY accomodation on the North Shore, let alone an affordable one. The place has a nice vibe and attracts budget travellers ( if there is such a thing on Hawaii ) and surfers from all over the world. We stayed at one of the apartments they offer. It was like sleeping on one of the...
