This is good, clean and basic accommodation for women but if you are a tourist it is outside the pick-up area for most tours etc. There are buses to get to Waikiki, but it does require a bus transfer and you must allow for some time to get there. The other consideration is that the reception desk is closed for... More

My last stay was over December 2014/January 2015, but I book with them regularly when visiting home, which is usually about once every year. For me this location has the added benefit of being located in the neighborhood I used to live in, so I'll admit up front that nostalgia may tinge my view, but I think Fernhurst is hard... More

This is good value, quiet, basic accommodation with a few extras facilities such as high speed internet. The room was a little dusty but my main fault was that as a traveller I didn't really feel comfortable/welcome. This has nothing to do with the YWCA but please note airport shuttles charge double to come here, and many do not service... More

The people here are wonderful, thoughtful, caring, with a sense of integrity, yet there is something that lacks with the overall experience. Let's start with the comfortability for all the residents and visitors... I wasn't at YWCA for too long however there are things that in that short period of time I noticed that I didn't at all was suitable... More

My very first stay at YWCA Fernhurst was June 1987 where I lived for one short month while finding permanent housing and adjusting to living in Paradise. I have stayed there many times since and although the building is now one half the original size, the ambiance is the same. The entire building is occupant friendly, secure, clean and much... More

Well I can't say enough about the staff and Fernhurst Residence. It's centrally located in a safe area. It's simple but clean and friendly. Safe for a solo traveling female. Rhonda and Jocelyn the staff are wonderful...I met some great ladies while I was there who were also either traveling or actually staying for a couple months....I would reccomend it... More

I was in Honolulu for work though on a somewhat tight budget, and got a referral to the YWCA Fernhurst. It's been perfect. The rooms are basic (somewhat like a college dorm), but spotlessly clean, and the facility is very secure. Perfect for a woman traveling on her own. The breakfast was fine (cereal, milk, etc.) though the dinner was... More

I stayed at the YWCA Ferhurst residence with my daughter-in-law and granddaughter for 2 nights. My granddaugter had to get a medical procedure done at a nearby hospital. The stay at Fernhurst was very pleasant. The facility was very clean and orderly. The staff was so professional and easy to speak with and very accessible. I appreciated the low noise... More

This trip was my 3rd to the island of Oahu so it was not important for me to be close to the beach or in the thick of Waikiki. I was very happy to stay in a residential part of Honolulu at the Fernhurst instead of touristville. In case you don't read the rest of my review, I want to... More

I stayed here for 6 weeks due to an internship. The staffs were very very nice, they help whenever possible and are polite. The room and bathroom is decent and the corridor and common area was always clean. The furnitures are a bit old and the closet space are limited, but it is sufficient if you are coming for a...
