“best time in Hawaii”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

If you are a traveler going to Hawaii looking for a good time thats the best place to stay! The staff is absolutely amazing and fun! they were extremely helpful and friendly had an wonderful time with them! the place is really clean and the location is perfect! close to the beach, diamond head, zoo, aquarium and walking distance from everything cool in Waikiki :) they also do really fun trips to the north and east shore what is always really fun!!
I had the time of my life staying at the hostel, and I am already planning in coming back, and staying at the Polynesian Hostel!!

Room Tip: make a reservation online a few days before, the rooms fill up quick always

I had so much fun staying in this hostel! The people who worked there were fabulous and friendly. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was great. It is a perfect location within walking distance of a couple bars, Waikiki beach, the Honolulu Zoo. There is a moped rental place on the same street (which I recommend) so you can easily go travelling on the cheap.

One of my favorite parts of staying at the Polynesian was the sightseeing tours. They are cheap and fun. If you want to save a bizillion dollars, see the best beaches and the best eats on the island... I recommend going with them. It's a blast.

Room Tip: The private rooms are cheap if you're looking for something more cost efficient and private.

We had a great time staying at the Polynesian our first week in Hawaii. The people who work there are great, fun to hang out with and really helpful:) And it is not as expensive as other places to stay in Waikiki. The best thing about the Polynesian is all the activities they arrange, like the kayak trips to Kailua and roundtrips on the island. We will definitely stay here the next time we're visiting Oahu!

I showed up at the airport in Honolulu without a clue where to go and worried that everything would be booked. Lo and behold, my savior! I called Polynesian Hostel and they had spots and were bus accessible. The bus takes an hour but stops around the corner and goes most places on the island frequently.

The staff were really friendly and helpful with all my random questions. There is a bit of a party group there, but the common area shuts down at 10. And beyond just the party-ers, just in the week I was there I met business people, students looking for housing, people looking for jobs, and some awesome staff members. The suite with kitchenette is a pretty good deal for the island (it's an expensive place!). Location is also good because it's on the end of Waikiki so it's not as flooded with people as the rest of the area is. It's still close enough to walk to stuff though, like the beach half a block away. There is internet on each floor, but they aren't quite handling it at capacity yet. The rather busy washer/dryer is a plus as well.

Super close to the Waikiki Beach, just about 3 mins by walk. And very convenient to the shopping area, some fine clubs and nice restaurants! A little be noisy in the early morning so hard to stay in bed after a certain time for sure lol

The place definitely has positives and negatives but in the end, it's a good place. Was here for 4 nights, and felt fine staying here. The ups, really close to the beach and within walking distance for everything Waikiki. Great staff as well. The downs are the shared bathrooms with another room (never told), finding a knife on my bed when I went in, and too many people smoking drugs around us (some might take that as a plus). Don't know if I would stay here again, but would recommend it to a couple of my friends.
