This is an absolutely awesome place to stay, everyone staying there is friendly and they're all there for the same reason: to have the best experience that Oahu has to offer! Rates are cheap, but the staff certainly don't reflect that! It is definately a place to stay if you want to have fun and meet heaps of people from...

I stayed there for three weeks in Sept to Oct 2011. I have stayed at several luxury hotels on Waikiki Beach but, this time tried something different. It allowed me to extend my vacation while getting the most out of my visit. It's one block from the beach and what a great location to all the hot spots. The staff...

I stayed at Waikiki Beachside on my own in May of 2011 on an impromptu trip to Hawaii. My plane was several hours late, and I didn't arrive at the hostel until 1:00AM. The desk attendants were very kind and accommodating. They pointed me in the right direction for a car rental and suggested a couple day trips. This place...

First of all I want to point out that this hostel is located directly between Polynesian beach club and Seaside Hawaiian Hostel, so don't debate between the three based on location (as I did). The location is great though, very close to the beach/shops etc. Staff go above and beyond to make your stay great. Cheap dinners are a great...

The location is great. The free breakfast and wifi is great. The rooms are not so great. This place could really do with a good clean and a new coat of paint. Broken blinds and dodgy aircon could easily be fixed if they'd just spend a little money on the place. I guess they don't feel the need to fix...
