Brilliant value for the perfect location. Very short walk to the beach and buses, perfect for budget travellers who want to stay somewhere central but also close to the beach. I had a shared dorm with other girls and they were all lovely, all 4 of us were solo travellers. This was not a crazy party hostel, but was everybody... More

I decided to be spontaneous and stay at almost all of the hostels here at Waikiki while at my stay in O'ahu, this was by far my favorite. It was super clean, I saw staff cleaning and mopping the floors daily. The bathrooms where super organized and clean. The common area has a huge kitchen and fridge, its very nice.... More

Great location and a good price. I stayed two nights in December in a private room. Clean premises apart from a couple of long hairs above my bath. No blankets provided but sheets and towels were. The windows are glass shutters so the wind and noise comes in. Free wifi which fortunately reached my room. Very strict on check in... More

I like this place. The HI Hostel has a prime central location. Bit noisy but that's par for the course in Waikiki. There were seven beds in my dorm, one bathroom. Small lockers. Please note, this is not a party hostel. No alcohol allowed. What I liked best was how clean it is. Paul the manager has this place very... More

I travelled with a friend and we had a very good experience staying at this hostel. We booked a 6-bed female dorm, which in reality turned out to consist of two room, one with two people and one with 4 people, with an ensuite bathroom. The rooms and bathrooms as well as the common areas were always spotless and very... More

Only thing about the rooms is that there's no shelf or a bedside lamp. And the wifi sucked lol you can only use it in the common room / kitchen area for some... More
