“A perfect start in Hawaii!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We had a great time staying at the Polynesian our first week in Hawaii. The people who work there are great, fun to hang out with and really helpful:) And it is not as expensive as other places to stay in Waikiki. The best thing about the Polynesian is all the activities they arrange, like the kayak trips to Kailua and roundtrips on the island. We will definitely stay here the next time we're visiting Oahu!

I showed up at the airport in Honolulu without a clue where to go and worried that everything would be booked. Lo and behold, my savior! I called Polynesian Hostel and they had spots and were bus accessible. The bus takes an hour but stops around the corner and goes most places on the island frequently.

The staff were really friendly and helpful with all my random questions. There is a bit of a party group there, but the common area shuts down at 10. And beyond just the party-ers, just in the week I was there I met business people, students looking for housing, people looking for jobs, and some awesome staff members. The suite with kitchenette is a pretty good deal for the island (it's an expensive place!). Location is also good because it's on the end of Waikiki so it's not as flooded with people as the rest of the area is. It's still close enough to walk to stuff though, like the beach half a block away. There is internet on each floor, but they aren't quite handling it at capacity yet. The rather busy washer/dryer is a plus as well.

Super close to the Waikiki Beach, just about 3 mins by walk. And very convenient to the shopping area, some fine clubs and nice restaurants! A little be noisy in the early morning so hard to stay in bed after a certain time for sure lol

The place definitely has positives and negatives but in the end, it's a good place. Was here for 4 nights, and felt fine staying here. The ups, really close to the beach and within walking distance for everything Waikiki. Great staff as well. The downs are the shared bathrooms with another room (never told), finding a knife on my bed when I went in, and too many people smoking drugs around us (some might take that as a plus). Don't know if I would stay here again, but would recommend it to a couple of my friends.

The people at this hostel were so welcoming it was unbelievable. I had the best time there and have made friends that I will hopefully keep for a long time! It is literally a few minutes walk to the main beach and they arrange amazing varied trips all around the island. The rooms and the bathrooms were clean, and if there was any problems, they fix it straight away. It's a relaxed cosy hostel where you can have a group atmosphere if you want it, or relax alone.I would definitely recommend this hostel and stay here again!

STAY HERE! The best LOCATION; only a minutes walk to Waikiki Beach! The friendliest, helpful and most informative management & staff. The rooms and bathrooms are uber clean with brand new Ikea beds! The free brekkie, free bodyboard and snorkeling gear hire and free Wifi on all floors and rooms is a godsend. There are daily free activities organised by the hostel too. I had a great time here; you'll come as strangers but leave as friends! There's a good vibe here, stay here with confidence.
