We stayed at the Seaside a couple of weeks ago and it surely was the best choice! The hostel is within walking distance of the beach and all the major bars and shops in Waikiki. It is also secluded enough to ensure a good night´s rest. The atmosphere is friendly and fun; we chatted with other guests and even watched... More

The hostel is very close to all the shops and restaurants and 10 min walking from Waikiki Beach. Clean and very friendly staff. They gave us towels and let us have a shower when we were back in Honolulu and were waiting for our flight to leave.

This place has a prime location in Waikiki. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean. They provide towels but no soap or shampoo. The wifi is not that fast. They let us check in early which was nice. Relatively quiet. We stayed there for the 4th of July long weekend. I was expecting it to be very loud but we... More

I stayed here for just two nights. Mostly because everywhere else was so expensive. I still found this hostel expensive for what it was though. The furnishings and environment is a big dated our curtains didn't cover the whole window and they didn't open back so you could let air in. The beds are two foam mattresses which don't offer...

The hostel is located right in the heart of Waikiki and it is really close to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. The complimentary breakfast was lovely and it was so lovely of the hostel to also have a pasta night for donations and cook waffles one morning too! All the staff were so helpful and knowledgable about Honolulu. The... More

It was very nice, wonderful friendly staff, and some very lovely and interesting people staying there which made this hostel stand out from many others that I have stayed at. As an older traveller I was made to feel welcomed and included by both staff and the younger travellers. It has all the facilities that you could wish for in... More

The hostel is named after the street it's located on... Not that it is by the seaside. It is located within walking distance of beach & everything else you need. There is loads of info on where to find everything! I stayed 3 nights & had a bed in a 2 share only female dorm. This cost extra but I... More

We received a free room upgrade when we arrived which was great. Very close to beach and stores. not much of a common area other than tables and chairs outside, making it a little harder to interact with others. Also was unfortunate that neither of us were 21 so at night there wasn't much to do. overall good, clean hostel... More
