It's a very nice location. The 6 beds dorm was ok. There is only 1 bathroom to share and it's a bit small. There is 1 private room in the dorm so we shared the bathroom with 8 people.My room was upstair and the windows was a bit broken. If you want to sleep early, you might can't do it...

Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff are so lovely, got a tour as soon as I arrived and had the basics of the local stuff straight away. The location is great! Walking distance to the beach, food, shopping and nightlife. Some basic tour info also available at reception. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and...

I love this place ! Can't say enough good about it hands down the best in waikiki . The problem is trip advisor made a mistake and switched my five star review to the bechside hostel which is really a bad place unless you like to party and don't mind being stuck in a random bunk with snoring old men...

The low down: I stayed at this hostel for quite a few days. A great location close to Waikiki Beach and shopping areas. Food options around each corner and the bus system was super easy right outside the doors. When I first arrived I found that the space was not overly clean. The hostel staff wasn't overly friendly or knowledgeable....

We were provided with clean sheets and towel upon check in. Free toast for breakfast was excellent as was the free waffles one morning! Thanks Clem they were great! The hostel is...

This hostel offers the opportunity to stay in Hawaii right on Waikiki beach affordably. The positives: location, cooking facilities, great customer service and secure gate The negatives: could use a bit of investment - painting, tiles and more secure doors/locks, there is no air conditioning. I've stayed in several hostels in the area, and in my opinion, this is the...

Reasons to stay here: + close proximity to Waikiki beach + very affordable for Honolulu standards + helpful staff + bus stop is just a few metres away + rooms are spacious + large private lockers (BYO lock) Reasons NOT to stay here: - bunk beds are fragile and flimsy. In fact, I was afraid the top bunk would collapse...

I had never stayed in a youth hostel before and I was terrified before going on this trip alone and choosing a hostel, but eventually I was so satisfied. The location was great, within walking distance to Waikiki & some shopping centers, near bus station. I had no problem finding the hostel even on my first day in Hawaii, traveling...

Other than the bad wifi and that the lounge area outside tends to be noisy at times, it's okay compared to the other rundown hostels nearby. Shower and toilet doors needs repair (don't lock properly). The smaller dorm lacks privacy since a connecting private room can only enter/exit through it. Nice friendly management and some of the staffs. And location...
