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!

Honestly this hostel was one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The staff are very knowledgable and friendly. Made great friends and..... Did I mention location? 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

lovely helpful staff, clean and fully equipped kitchen, clean rooms&bathroom, free breakfast. Only suggestion is to add some lockers to sharing dorms(6,7) there is availability to lock your stuff next to the reception but still .. anybody can access to this locker so doesn't really feel like 100% safe.

Pretty late review, but it has to be done! I stayed here from Jan 25th-30th, and out of the two others I stayed at, this was my favourite. Pros: -Shared kitchen, easy to meet people -Very central common area -Good rules regarding personal items in bathrooms, etc. Some hostels I went to were absolutely disgusting, however, Seaside had a "no...

I stayed in February two times in this hostel. It is clean and located in the heart of Waikiki and close to the beach. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I shared a dorm room which was totally fine. The wifi in the room doesn't work all the time. Breakfast is ok u get free toast. If I come... More
