Spiders, bugs, mold, rust, dust, drug deals, homeless people, this isn't a hostel its housing for long terms who are old, druggies, and shady. Avoid at all costs, I promise you are better off sleeping in your car or on the streets.

This was a last minute booking for me, not the best hostel but it is in a nice location. 1 block back from the beach and there is a moped rental place right next door which made travelling alot easier, tho i wouldnt recomend staying for more than 1-2 night, there are no lockers to keep your stuff safe and...

I had nowhere to stay and it was only for the night. Every other hostel on the block was taken and they had one bed free. It was in a room with two other guys...I was desperate so I took it. I think it was about $75 including the 35 dollar key deposit I got to the room and one... More

as other reviewer said....its horrible...they wanted all the money up front and no refunds when you get there. I stayed next door at the Waikiki Beachside. Night and day between the two. Pacific Ohana is a rip off..bordering con artists.

This by far, was the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. It should not even be listed as a hostel, because its really a long turn, skid row motel, for alcoholics, drug addicts and criminals. Its not secure, not safe. DO NOT STAY THERE!! I was in a pinch, and it still was not worth it. Had to hide... More

Title says it all. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. Compromising your health and safety is not worth saving a few bucks. I notified the hostel management that we encountered bed bugs, roaches and criminals walking around the building 24/7 and they could care less how our stay was. They said we should have notified them the day we checked... More

This hostel is passing for some constructions and modifications. They are improving a lot for the guests. Free fast wi-fi, that works on entire building. Housekeeping runs everyday that keeps the rooms tidy and clean. Roommates are very nice and friendly. On the ground floor you will find space for parking, and a good open area for guests, smoking or... More

This is not a hostel, it is a junkie crash pad stealing money from innocent tourists. They made us pay a 35 dollar key deposit, and when we went to return the key, management said they only had a hundred dollar bill and couldn't give us the 35. I had 65 dollars change, but she said it doesn't work that... More

Reception is placed in a garage and the staff seems slightly mental disturbed. We shared a room with 4 beds where we shared the bathroom with another room with 4 beds, the bathroom filthy with cockroaches everywhere. The beds was covered with Saran Wrap and the mattresses underneath was all brown and filthy! Overall it's a horrible place...
