Good beds, relaxed kind of people of all over the world. They have tours in the hostel. Good: homie space with cooking at some nights, bbq in the parking lot. Bad: there is one manager with a long beard. He can be very racist with non caucasians... The principal manager is lovely. Also the other staff members. This is a... More

All these people complaining about this venue obviously haven't stayed in hostels before. The staff are always friendly and relaxed. The facilities are all a little tired, but what they lack in quality, they make up for with free wifi, free breakfast and close location to the beach and shops..!

The staff go out of there way to make sure you are welcome and happy. The tours and cheap food they supply are convenient and yum! The hostel is basic but very clean! Bathrooms are just decent. The kitchen and common area are great for meeting everyone and the free snorkels, mats, boards and umbrellas are totally worth using! They... More

I only stayed here for 1 night and it was the Friday night before Memorial weekend. I was at another hostel prior to this one but I had to switch since I was coming back from another Island and that one required at least 2 nights stay. Maybe because of that I did compare this one to that one. I... More

Pretty basic hostel. If you're easy going you'll have a good time. Its a quick walk to the beach! I didn't do any cooking while staying there but they have a nice little area for it it. I was on the fourth floor and the wifi was almost perfect. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. I moved to a different hostel... More

Seriously. I think the people posting negative reviews on here have simply never been to a hostel, and are probably used to 3,4&5 star hotels where everything is immaculate. This is a hostel; a communal place for like-minded travelers to hangout, rest, meet new people and share new experiences, and I felt completely satisfied in all of those aspects. Sure,... More

The location is pretty much the only great thing about this hostel. The bedrooms and bathrooms were filthy, the kitchen fridge smelled like dead animals, the hostel staff was very rude and the wifi was a joke. The internet on our floor never worked and when I asked about it, the guy at the front desk said "I don't know... More

A well placed property right in the heart if Waikiki. Beach and zoo just around the corner. V helpful staff with good local knowledge offering plenty of advice. Gunnar (Icelandic) and Shaun were especially helpful going above and beyond to make my stay memorable. Go for a smaller bedded dorm if you can. They're cooler. The property organises many trips...

Worst place I 've ever been. Dirty rooms, with holes in the walls, bathrooms even worst. Breakfast shouldn't be called breakfast. Unfriendly people from hostel service. Totally unrecomended place to stay which can mąkę your stay in Waikiki unpleasant.
