I chose to stay in a private room. It was spacious but I'm just one person, so I didn't need that much space. The whole room smelt like stale cigarette smoke(for the whole 3 nights was there), the plastic bin in the room had the type of burn marks from burning cigarette butts and people from other rooms were smoking...

I happened to walk up just as the office clerk on duty was standing outside posting a "vacancy" sign: Apt. 322 had just been renovated 2 months previously and was undergoing basic cleaning while I looked it over: 288 sq. feet, large bathroom, ceiling fan, air-con, large screen cable tv, 4-burner range, huge new refrigerator, queen sized bed, roomy double...

The same owners also have The Ohana Pacific Hostel on lemon road. while i was staying at the place next door to Ohana pacific ( after leaving island hostel with no refund) the... More

This is one of the worst places that I have ever stayed in Hawaii (the other hostel is also owned by the same people who own this hostel). The place is cockroach ridden and filthy. They do not offer towels, lockers, or a clean cooking facility. You won't meet any interesting travelers there--many of the 'guests' who stay there are... More
