Everything was great. Really friendly helpful staff and convenient location. Rooms are cleaned daily. This is my first experience of a hostel and so glad I read the reviews of the other places I might have stayed instead. this one is a treasure. Enjoyed chatting to other guests and had good sleeps despite the constant Waikiki background noise. My only...

The staff were a friendly, helpful bunch. The other guests were respectful and polite. We have never felt so at home away from home. The idea that a traveler would choose to stay at a hostel, and then complain that it wasn't like a posh hotel is outrageous. The rooms and kitchens are clean, the sheets were washed and lovely....

The hostel is very nice and clean. The kitchen is great, they have all new stuff. The people here were very friendly and the staff as well. It is perfectly located three blocks from waikiki beach and bus stop. One thing bad,they dont have lockers,but the rest is perfect!

This is about the most unfriendly and ungrateful place you could stay at!The first time I stayed at this place was noisy and unpleasant during the weekends.There were numerous roaches,ants and rats around the kitchen and communal dining area. The drunkenness of the guests and those who are the employees are not worth having your vacation ruined by drunks who...

Top location in the heart of Waikiki. 5 minute walk to the beach and to a bunch of bars and restaurants. The staff was amazing and from all over the world and it was so easy to make friends as everybody hangs out in the courtyard with hammocks, a TV and the occasional beer pong game. They made a great...

Overall, my experience at this hostel was very positive. The staff were amazing, the location is terrific, I thought the beds were comfortable, free breakfast, free wifi, comfortable and spacious courtyard, and they gave us beach towels and towels to shower and didn't mind replacing them everyday. The only downside would be the cleanliness of the washrooms. However, by no...

This hostel is a good option if you are looking for excelent location at an affordable price in Waikiki. The staff is very nice and friendly. The room was pretty basic but the hostel in general is good.

Free breakfast, free snorkeling equipment, really nice staff! I'm just a little bit disappointed with the quiet hours : 11pm (everybody out!) every day. It's really safe and it's really easy to get to know travelers from all over the world! I'll come back for sure!
