Breakfast was great, could cook 2 eggs and 4 slices of toast with jam and butter. Common room was great and they even put on... More

I stayed three days at the Waikiki Backpackers Penthouse, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The Penthouse is unusual as a hostel in two ways. First, your bed will be located in the White Sands Hotel at 431 Nohonani Street, so if you are looking for a backpackers sign as you walk down Nohonani, as I did, you won’t... More
