You get what you pay for....as simple as that. First, the staff seems very friendly when you arrive but once you have paid they stop being friendly and honestly they are not very helpful. Second, the place is very noisy and although there is a time limit for people to stay in the common area, parties can keep going until... More

Stayed here for a week in September 2014. Location is great, right around the corner of Kuhio Av. About 10-minute walk from the beach, 5/10-minute walk from groceries etc. They offer free breakfast, but only toast and coffee/tea, which sucked because most hostels I've stayed at serve at least a continental breakfast which includes cereals, toast, fruit etc. They do...

Stayed here during the first part of my trip, decent hostel with great location, very close to the beach and many different restaurants. I enjoyed the breakfast and the desk lady was very professional.

We booked this hostel pretty much solely based on cost and location. It's a 5 min walk from where the airport bus stopped and 5-10 mins from the beach front. When we arrived there were people milling around everywhere and it took us a while to work out who worked there and to book in. They showed us to the... More

I stayed here while at a wedding. The hostel was basic, rooms appeared dated and overall untidy. On my third night there the hostel manager came into the room shouting - and kicked one of the guys out. It wasn't called for. He could have waited till the morning. The guy wasn't annoying anyone. I received a refund for that... More

If visiting Hawaii I would suggest skipping this hostel and going for a hotel, for the difference in price ($100 extra full trip) it's worth it. Rooms are dirty, bunks are unstable. Worst of all NO AIR CON - the most important thing you need in Hawaii after a day in the sun. I've seen the more favourable reviews say... More

This hostel is friendly and clean with lockers available in dormitories, but bring your own locks. The rooms are very basic. Upstairs room that we started in had no main door, only a flyscreen, so there was no privacy. No doors in either of the rooms we were in went to the floor, leaving large gaps. The first bed was...

This hostel has a great location and of course the price was right. I just didn't like how the WIFI did not work in the rooms. What really bothered me was the WIFI not working strongly in the main areas where they said it would be working. Sleeping here was okay but there's nothing anyone can do about the outside... More

Area is secure, need to pass a gate to get to the hostel. Well located, 5min walk to everything: grocery, restaurants, beach, etc. Staff is present and helpful. The open air area with the hammocks is great and the breeze is most welcome at night. The downside is that there are some bugs, and even found a cockroach at our... More
