Stayed here for about a week during summer season - and it was great!! This is a great hostel with amazing staff, cheap bike and surf rentals and an overall warm and happy atmosphere! The location is also great! the best snorkeling is done just across the road and we saw stingrays, sea turtles and a lot of cool fishes!... More

When staying at a hostel you are rolling the dice...this time I lost +1 star for an amazing location on the north shore. Can't be beat +1 star for polite friendly staff onsite. That's all I got I emailed and asked what was available for my travel dates. We exchanged emails and I was told a studio with double bed... More

I booked this hotel on the Internet, I was in a hurry and forgot to check tripadvisor. It was a bad experience. Actually, I lost the cancellation fee of US$ 160,00. When I arrived it was hard to get to the Hotel's reception, there are actually two different places in the same street. The room was horrible and not clean.... More

We arrived without booking and took a studio. The room was quite big with a balcony and kitchen. It was not really clean. Staff not really helpful, and Wifi not available as it should. But the location is really great and the town really pleasant!!

I was worried about booking after reading some of the reviews but we didn't experience the same as others it seems. For a hostel we thought it was good! I stayed for 2 nights with a friend, in the building behind where you check in, on the third floor, room E. It had 2 beds, clean sheets, 1xtowel and a... More

After spending couple days in Waikiki I have learned that Oahu and Waikiki in particular is a resembles of American city life. The last time I saw so many homeless people was in Vancouver. Anyway, I am here to... More

Went with my husband and daughter to stay in the 2 bdrm cabin...170 dollars nt. Arrived to a HOT , dirty, terrible beds, security issues (deadbolt broken), and buggy! Would not recommend for families...especially for that much money. Ended up at a keiki bungalow forfeiting our deposit.

This place is really run down and needs an urgent make over. It isn't easy to find a cheap place to stay on Hawaii, but I think you should get something better for your money than this. Our room wasn't cleaned before we came and at the end a cockroach crossed our bed.
