It is a simple hostel. I spent just 2 nights on it. Shared room. The hostel is located close to the best attractions of Honolulu. Also you can find some shops to rent a surf board close to the hotel. Waikiki beach is located two blocks away. I good place to know people. Aloha

Aloha, this hostel was my first experience in Hawaii. Joanne was accommodating and although I arrived at about 10.00am from the airport I was allowed to leave my backpack in the office until I returned in the afternoon for check in. The wifi is high speed and the kitchen is well organised. It's a little far out from Waikiki, it... More

Quiet, low-key, clean and friendly. This hostel is in a great part of town, close to lots of great Japanese food, bus routes, and the Manoa Valley. There are at least two species of gecko and one of small, cute anole lizard in the yard.

I chose this hostel over the one on Waikiki beach assuming it would be more peaceful and it seems I was right. The staff was friendly and the beds were comfortable. I shared a room with 5 other girls and everyone was quiet and respectful after lights out. The bathrooms, dorm room and kitchen were all clean and well kept.... More
