Loved the location, walking distance to anywhere and bus stops up the road. Front desk was what is was for a hostel, I don't expect anything amazing from hostel reception (generally I do t care, I'm usually tired and just want to get to my room). I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm and I thought it was good,...

The private room I and my friend got was dirty. We stayed there for a week and asked for an extra mattress - the staff said they would bring one, but never did after reassuring us they will. Don't leave your car there cause the staff will need to move it for other cars to park - better to leave...

Took the room with shared bathroom but the place was extremely dirty. Also, our room did not have any curtains and the ventilation system broke down. Only upside is that the hostel is in a nice location, just east of waikiki. Not recommended at all.

Stayed, enjoyed the location, enjoyed the company, enjoyed the tours, enjoyed Hawaii. Didn't enjoy the breakfast, it's not breakfast they are better off dropping that comment altogether. It's run by other backpackers at length they may have a couple full time staff buts that's it. But it's hostel, it's ok, not the best but I been to far worse. If...

We had a one night layover in Hawaii going to China and needed a place to lay our head. The hotels in $100 and under looked horrible and parking was expensive so we chose this hostel. It was me and my 13 son. We booked a private room. It was in the back of a 6 bed dorm where we...

Read alot of the negative reviews beforehand and must expect to pay $20 a night for a 5 star resort, You pay for what you get - a bed and a roof over your head! I have never travelled solo before so thought this would be a great way to start and it was a good choice! Check in was...

This hostel is in a cracking location, situated just by Waikiki and all the hustle and bustle. They offered great tours and at $20 for a North shore trip, you can not argue with that. Lot's of different backpackers interacting with each other and having a good time. Shelly the manager was really helpful and organised in what she was...

The proximity of the hostel to the beach, bus-stops, restaurants, shopping, internet cafe, etc. is excellent. I booked the semi-private room for 1 week but was disappointed with the layout. The access to my room required me to walk through a dorm room to my entrance and there was 1 bathroom shared between 7 people. However, the room had a...
