My sister and I stayed here a few nights while travelling all over Oahu. The staff were friendly, giving us directions and help with the buses, rooms were clean and we had our own bathroom and kitchenette (in 8 person dorm) plus the price was amazingly cheap! The downstairs chill-out area can be pretty loud at night but the staff... More

Booked in for a 3 night stay..... Stayed 15 nights. Excellent spot for the solo traveller, very social and relaxed environment. So close to the beach and restaurants. Accommodation is fairly basic, but clean and secure and at bargain prices what more can you ask for! Will definitely be coming back. Can't recommend it highly enough.

HMMM. Well I would say this hostel was what I expected. I was just staying one night before I flew out of Honolulu the next day. Atmosphere was chill and relaxed - a lot of people hanging out and drinking in the common area, which was nice. But trying to sleep was a nightmare. Guys in our room were drunk... More

I stayed here for 2 nights + another 3 nights after I come back from my stay in the north shore. At both times we stayed at the semi private room B304. In the first 2 nights, there is a TV in our room, but in the next occasion the TV is gone. They say they are taking out the... More

I had my doubts about this hostel as there are also some bad reviews, but it was better than I expected. The atmosphere is good and the location is great. Mattresses are equipped with plastic covers, bathrooms are ok (you get ok showers), there is a kitchen in the room. I saw one cockroach during my visit which was much... More

Had a bed in a dorm right in front of the exhaust of the aircon. As a result I had a servere cough while on Hawaii. Furthermore the breakfast-times are 9am to 10am. ridiculous! THERE ARE SEVERAL BACKPACKER RIGHT NEXT DOOR - MOVE - I DID SO AND YOU SHOULD DO SO, TOO!

perfect location. beach is down the block. all touristy venues around the corner. ABC shop at corner and another down the street. average facility, excellent staff! on our stay we had to cancel our last days due to a spontaneous change of plans and they were very understanding and we had no problems.

Would recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Waikiki. Rodney the guy with dreads was super helpful, even on the first night I ended up in the wrong place so he helped me find my friend and the hostel I was actually booked into. Rooms and bathrooms where new and very clean in the C wing where we crashed. No... More

I've stayed at a few great hostels, others not so much, but Waikiki Beachside totally exceeded my expectations. I've already recommended it to others and I can't wait to return!!! :) Check-in was good/straightforward, all of the staff at the front desk were so helpful & friendly! :) I particularly liked that the room/entry key is a light blue silicone...
