Great location, liked that I had a curtain round my bunk. Nice touch. Everything is within walking distance such as Waikiki beach and the main shops and restaurants. Liked the breakfast options - it was a nice touch having honey and porridge. Great value for money :)

I was traveling with a friend and we stayed here for a week. CONS: The booking is very confusing because it doesn't allow for longer stays, but once you get there it is possible. The staff wasn't friendly - except for one super helpful blond girl - and our room was facing the street. Every day at 6am there was... More

Myself and my two friends had the time of our lives here. From the waffles that Julee made to dancing with Robyn in the kitchen in the morning, we loved every moment here. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. We love you and will miss you!

It is a good hotel. The building has swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym and a big BBQ zone with tables an a beautiful view of the city an the sea. I spent some days at this hotel with some friend and I had a great time. Nice rooms and closer to the principal attractions of Waikiki

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!
