Not a bad place. The manager knows how things can go wrong and she has the knowledge and aloha spirt. I would steal her to run my place. Hint girl! ;) The worst part if you dont do the semi private is no a/c. During summer june to oct you want a/c its humid.

I had a great time at this hostel. I stayed in the semi-private room, which was a lockable room within another room, that had a shared bathroom and kitchenette. The bathroom was a little old-fashioned, but cleaned daily and the shower was hot. There was air conditioning in the private room. There is a free breakfast every morning until 10am... More

I've stayed in a few hostels, and I have to say this is the best one so far. The atmosphere is great, there are young and old and almost everyone you meet is happy and friendly. The rooms were nice and fairly clean. There are lockers to keep valuables in, even though I didn't think it was necessary. I felt... More

I stayed here for one week in a 4-bed dorm. The room was better than I expected due to there being no bunk beds as only single beds were present. Seeing a bathroom in the room was a nice touch and definitely better than other hostels that I've stayed at. I heard that the larger dorm rooms have a kitchen... More

had a semi private room, you are in the middle of everything, The staff is really cool, you have the bus, the shops, the restaurants, the beach, the mop rentals, the little snackbar down the stairs for a ridiculous price. my stay on Oahu was perfect.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I am travelling solo so stayed in a 4 bed female dorm. The dorm was 2 rooms so didnt really feel like staying in a dorm and also had small kitchen facilities. And no bunks! The dorms were reasonably clean. They are old so the bathroom isnt the greatest but the housekeeping staff do... More

Great location, and friendly staff. However I booked a shuttle to the airport with the hostel and a staff member made an error and my bus was not booked for me. I ended up having to rush to the airport and fork out Extra for a taxi. Was not happy.

Excellent location with a lot of things to do nearby and just some blocks from the beach. The staff is really friendly, efficient and helpful. There is a very good area to socialize with the others guests and make friends.

The hostel is very well located one square from Waikiki beach, there are a lot of restaurants, pubs and markets near it, you can rent towel for a good price, it does not have elevators until the 4th floor, refrigerator and all that you need to do your dishes are in your bedroom! You can rent bicycles and scooters just... More

I stayed at the Waikiki Beachside Hostel for a week, and it was amazing! I was in an 8 person dorm room, and had no issues whatsoever. The staff were really courteous, fun, and helpful! Checkout was at noon, but since my flight didn't leave until 9pm, so they let me store my luggage there for $5 so I didn't... More
