I stayed here just expecting a cheap hostel but I found so much more then that. The people that worked in the hostel were lovely. The rooms were very spacious. I was in a strictly all girls room. It consisted of two rooms connected, both with two single beds in each. There was a bathroom for the four of us...

This was my first time staying at a hostel. I really enjoyed the experience. The staff was friendly and could not have been more helpful. They recommended a great, cheap place to book tours and also gave advice on public transportation and a nature hike, all of which worked out great. The main perk of this place is the location...

This is a great hostel, only one block to the beach and shopping areas. Rooms are clean and have lots of space. Reception are pleasant and informative . The only negative was the key locks tend to play up abit but I found if you bend the key slightly up the door should open.

Ive stayed at the Waikiki beachside hostel 4 times now and every single time I go something is new and better with the place. The very first time i went about 2 years ago I thought i was awesome.

One block from the beach. Staff were super friendly and helpful at all times. Was in 8 bed dorm room. Was a little cramped and bathroom cramped too, but were always cleaned, and the kitchen was great in there and the people staying were friendly. The BBQ's nightly were great and cheap too. Will be staying here again one day...

I stayed at this hostel for a week, travelling on my own for the first time, aged 20. The best thing about this hostel has to be its location from the beach - it's literally only a block away! Stayed in an bed all girls room. The room was a decent size with a kitchenette and a balcony! The dorm...
