This is a well located hostel with pretty nice rooms, staff, etc. The one issue is cleanliness - I stayed for two weeks and did not see the cleaners clean the toilet or shower and only topical cleaning of the rest (aka - just for show). As an experiment, I left a tube of shampoo on the floor of the... More

Travelled to homily with a group of 50. We stayed at Waikiki beachside hotel in May. Rooms are neat and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Great spot just one block back from Waikiki beach. Excellent value for money and we had a great visit. Highly recommend if you are traveling on a tight budget or with a large group of... More

My husband and I stayed at this hostel for four nights while on the island of Oahu. We enjoyed the location because we could walk one block and be on the famous beautiful beach. Shops and delicious food were only a short walk away. The room was what we expected for the price. There was a kitchen and after asking... More

ABC stores are all around. the Diamond Head is within walking distance. if you... More

My sister and I stayed for 4 days here and got the room with the 4 beds, two of which were in a private room. We arrived was before check-in time but we were able to leave our things in the hostel so we could have breakfast. The hostel was near all the convenient stores and location. Pros: - spacious...

I've stayed at a lot of hostels and this is by far the best one I've stayed at. It was only a short stay of 3 nights - a quick stopover to break up a flight - but I was very sad to leave! I booked a large mixed dorm and though it was a bit uncomfortable at first (seeing... More

This was my first hostel experience and it was one to remember, in a great way. If you're a bit iffy about sharing a room with strangers, I hope this eases your mind a bit. it's true, you cant pick who your roomates are, but everyone I met was super friendly and had amazing stories to tell. my friend and...

Good prices. Rooms were good, had an 8 bed dorm, divided in two rooms of four. Bathroom was nice, cleaned daily. Balcony was nice. Shout out to the night shift guy who put on Liverpool - Man Utd about 3 am for me. Located close to the beach and the major bus stops.

Great hostel with great staff, right on waikiki beach. There's a big roof deck that's open til 10pm, and the staff are very helpful and constantly organizing events. When I was there, they had several cheap tours for guests, as well as free barbecues and pizza nights. Rooms only have four or five guests each, with working AC. Would definitely... More

Stayed here with a friend and we had an amazing time. The hostel itself isn't that fabulous but it is the location and the staff who make the place, especially Yianni who works nightshifts there, we instantly became friends. The road the hostel is placed on is known to be a bit dodgy (which it was) but the location is... More
