This hostel was gross. My bathroom smelled like something horrible, the solution to which seemed to be just to open the window. I was on the first floor so opening the window meant my shower was visible from the outside so my only option was to deal with the smell. My air conditioner was broken to the point where it... More

Came as a solo traveller, found this to be a great and cosy place to stay. My room was also kindly upgraded when I arrived. Plenty of activities to do at the front info desk - the hostel also runs some social nights like free pizza night which is great. There's always something to do. Perfect location not far from...

Roof top terrace is lovely and location of hostel, just one block from the beach, is awesome. Highly recommend the Waikiki Beach Hostel for those on a budget wanting a place... More

It's situated in a perfect location at Waikiki, so easy to get around. Thanks to the excellent management that the staff (who... More

I was a cautious, optimist prior to staying at this hostel. Quite frankly my first stay in a hostel this one was a charm. Parking was very reasonable for this area at 10 bucks with a queen size bed, a full size bed, private shower, a kitchenette and more square footage to boot than the EWA hotel a couple of... More

Loved saying at this place. Felt really welcome and at home here. Everyone was really friendly, especially the reception staff. Josh was really helpful every time I had a question about certain sights and local attractions. Very friendly as well. I would definitely come back here! I've stayed at dozens of hostels throughout travels over the years and The Beach... More

It was an awesome hostel with a great roof top terrace AND just a block from the beach. Callie who checked me in was very welcoming and helpful. She definitely made me feel like I was at home :) Josh was also very helpful and approachable. He brought some great vibes to the hostel with his music and macadamia nuts.... More

If we wish to have a place for a sleep for few hours with a reasonable price then your choice must be this. There are locker facilities, rooms with AC, wifi, bed and break fast, easy assess, near to the popular places what else you need in Hawaii.
