Upstairs in the back house was clean, reasonably priced and therefore good value. Pre booking was hard (no replies) so booked through Hotels.com. Hostel has access to 3rd party deals so ask. I paid more booking directly for SCUBA trip. Bikes are bad but what do you expect for $5/day. I'd have pay $15/day for a safe reliable bike.

I can't comment on the shared rooms but the private rooms were excellent. Clean, a bit of storage space and a bathroom shared between two or three rooms only. The location is great if you're there for the surf.

The people who 'live' here are nice for the most part once they decide your not a cop. Some of them are pretentious vagrants that think the world owes them a favor. The kitchens are full of unwashed dishes. The refrigerator are all filled with rotten food. The bed are all about to come crashing down. Pretty much a stoners... More

I stayed in the beach house in November 2014. I was also here in January 2013. The place could use some renovations but the location made it worth the price. Don't expect too much, the rooms back right onto the sand though and most rooms have a fantastic view. Some are blocked by palm trees. The staff are pretty chilled... More

There are few short term accomodations on the North Shore of Oahu, especially priced to fit a middle class budget. We found this place on line, no reviews, and it sounded good. First problem - poor signage and lighting made it very difficult to find after dark. We had never received the promised email confirmation or any directions. Upon checking... More

One step up from camping if you want to stay on North Shore. It's a dirty college apartment with long-term guests and your the new guy...along with a 70 year old. Small rooms, near broken bunk beds, extremely dirty shower, sticky floor Paying in cash gives you a discount
