It's a nice place to stay. Some of the rooms are with kitchen. The quality of cleaning depends on the housekeeper. Some of them are really precise, another ones are not. The main building needs reconstruction - the doors to the balconies are too old and it's hard to open/close them. No air conditioners in the big rooms. The windows... More

Our hostel came with a room that has air con and we had to share it with another 2 patrons. One night was about $40. Pretty decent for a room that has a toilet and shower facilities (shared between 4 people), a comfortable bed with pillows, bedsheets and blanket. There's also a kitchen and stove. You can make your own... More

No rooms available at decent price in Waikiki except this. $40 for a bed in a room of 4 beds. Fortunately I got a bottom bunk. No A/C and very loud...you can hear all street noise. Also you have to bring your own towel...or buy one but they were out. One shared bath for eight beds. Guy in bed across... More

If you want a good place to crash or dont want to spend too much on accommodation this is a very good hostel on the lemon road with very close access to the beach. The Waikiki beach strip is just 2 minute walk. Transportation is accessible from two sides the beach or main road. Rooms are good can get a... More

During the labor day weekend, I found this place to be the cheapest in Waikiki area. Although it involved sharing a room, I saved almost 200 dollars a day, just selecting this place over a hotel. The location is wonderful. Just one block away from the beach, the zoo and many other locations. I have seen many hostel residents carry... More

Waikiki Beachside is in the perfect location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in an all girls 8 bed dorm and thankfully had lovely ladies in my room. The room itself was dirty and falling apart. The shower was breaking and sometimes it was difficult to turn on. The air conditioner didn't work and if the window... More

The hostel is a nice one close to the beach which different types of rooms (from private room to doorm). Cleaning was every day and breakfast was ok; we only tried it twice. The staff was helpful and friendly. I will stay there again, if I would make it back to Hawaii again.

I've stayed at several hostels during my travels and this would have to be the worst. The rooms are dirty and the air conditioner barely worked. There's lockers in the rooms but you have to pay 25c every time you open them to lock them again - ridiculous!

Friendly staff, clean & conveniently located hostel with good wifi coverage into the rooms plus a change machine that is useful if you've run out of quarters for the buses. Breakfast is only coffee or tea with peanut butter and jam on toast. Luckily I happen to like this American staple so no complaints there but some of the extra... More
