We have stayed at Polynesian Hostel a number of times. We love that it is located only a block from the ocean and the beach, next to the zoo, nearby a number of great reasonably priced restaurants, bus lines that can take you anywhere including around the island and North Shore. Hostel often offers tours around the island that cost... More

My wife and had a 1 night layover in Honolulu and decided to stay here. The location is great, less than 100m to the beach and the main strip. We had a private room with a shared bathroom which wasn't amazing but adequate for a hostel. We also had to walk through one of the shared bedrooms to get to... More

Thanks to Grandpa and the crew for a great stay! The tour to the north shore was amazing and kayaking, too. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, with Lulu's bar right around the corner and the beach only a few steps away. There are lockers in all the rooms and the gates are locked at night, so... More

This was possibly the friendliest hostel I have ever visited. The staff are ace and the tours fantastic! I went without a plan and everyone was extremely helpful in helping me find cheap car hire and visit sites. The tours go to great spots that I wouldn't have seen otherwise and were the highlight of the trip. The rooms are... More

I spent one night in the "semi-private" with shared bathroom, which is actually a tiny dirty room across a dorm. The towels were stinking of dogs and I did not shower as the bathroom was disgusting (see the picture I added). I never the saw the Alphonso pancakes. This place may be ok for backpackers that don't mind living in... More

The 'private room' was filthy but the owner has to be commended for the use of mold in the bathroom. It would be a shame to actually clean the bathroom and have all that build up of mold disappear. I'm surprised that the department of health has not shut this place down.
