Stayed here last week and found the atmosphere really good, staff friendly and rooms clean and comfortable. Wifi was fast and accessible from the ground floor room I was in (near the reception area) and they offered free snorkel gear hire which was a real bonus. The only thing to be aware of is that you are NOT allowed food... More

At first it was a bit hard to find the Seaside Hostel as it is down an alleyway and behind some big gates, but it is actually a really nice little hostel. The staff are super friendly and there were waffles and coffee every morning for breakfast available to all. The hostel has a great outdoor area that promotes the... More

This is my second visit to this hostel. I stayed 5 years ago as well, so I am an older guest but I was trying to save some money on my trip. The staff was nice and I did like that the gate has a buzzer code in order to get into the hostel. There are signs inside the room... More

Me and three friends stayed at the Seaside Hawaiian in May 2015 and absolutely loved our stay! The staff were so friendly, the rooms were lovely with a bathroom per 6 person room and comfortable beds and free breakfast (and not the usual pancakes - real toast!). The best part of the hostel was it's perfect location in Waikiki -... More

IT was my short trip to Hawaii. I was at a hostel for 6 nights and can`t say a bad word about it. There were breakfasts provided, it was decent but you could have bought eggs or oatmeal. There were also extra breakfasts twice:) Rooms were clean and there were no bugs inside. The location of the hostel is perfect!

Cause its close to everything you need. I will most definitely come back to seaside to visit all the places I didn't have time to see this trip. Thanks Seaside Hawaiian Hostel for... More

In general, all the good things you've read in other reviews are true. It's a great location, close to the beach and many bus routes... there's even a direct bus from the airport if you've only got carry-on luggage (can't take large luggage on the bus). Stayed in a dorm, and there's a variety of bed qualities, the one i... More

I spent two nights here when visiting Honolulu for a weekend by myself. The shared space was a great area to meet other travelers and the hostel offered a free breakfast that was pretty good. The private room for two females had double sized bunk beds and a somewhat amazing thermarest mattress. The location was right in the heart of... More

Stayed here for a week with my friend and we had a good time! The kitchen is great (although the fridge is outside which is a bit weird) but the breakfast is good! The staff are super nice! Beds less nice (squeaky) but who really cares about beds when you are on Hawaii!? Atmosphere really chill, quiet time maybe less... More
