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

The location, price, atmosphere, view, amenities and fellow travelers were all great. I would've loved to stay longer and would definitely stay again. The reason I can't give 5 stars is that it was very dirty, and the staff wasn't too helpful prior and up arrival. The room (I stayed in a double room with shared bath/kitchen on the plantation)...

If you're looking for accom built for Bodhi and the ex-presidents (re "Point Break")... This is it. A cluster of rough and tumble beach shacks with surf board falling out the windows. The crowd it attracts is, need it be said, every type of surfer invented; from the cliche mellow dudes on the search, the ADD adrenalin junkies looking for... More

The place is clean and the owner is very friendly, such as the travellers i met. Definitely located close to some good surf spots and the main city, on the northshore. You d better have a car if you want to enjoy the coast.

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
