Stayed there 3 years ago and was awesome but now it was completely different!
Jesse the manager is a rude person, saw him yell at guests all the time, specially around 10pm, quiet time!
The other staff member are ok, but they don't hang around with guests, it seems that they don't want to have fun because of the manager!
If you like a place that they have no idea what customer service is that's the place!

I have stayed at the Polynesian Hostel Beach Club twice over the last 2 years and would go back there anytime.

The hostel is only 2 blocks from the beach and in very close proximity to everything a traveler would want to do in Waikiki.

Everyone I have ever met there was very nice and some of my fellow travelers have turned into good friends.

Room Tip: The 12 bed dorm is very crowded. I would instead recommend to stay in the 8 bed dorm. Room #100 is my personal favorite.

One of the many hostels I stayed in while in Honolulu. Easy to find, close to the beach and the action and just across from the zoo, if you need a landmark. It is not the cleanest hostel in the world, but the standard of hostels in Honolulu is not high, however, this was one of the places I felt most comfortable in. As with other hostels, the staff vary as they are mostly volunteers, however, had a great trip to the north coast with a friendly member of staff... really enjoyed that day.

Room Tip: The less people in a dorm, USUALLY the less noise :)

It's not what it seems....that's saying it in a subtle way. The place is unkept, the 1st room that we had was so dusty that even in the bed there's a chunk of dust on top of the mattress (if you call it a mattress cuz it looks like a thick foam covered with the sheets). So we requested another room and put us in the 4th floor much better but the pressure in the shower is so low that showering will take you 30 mins and on the 2nd day we already killed 10 cockroach on the floor....The wifi service means you have to go down to the lobby to get a signal and all the rooms have no AC they forgot to add in the website.

Room Tip: If cleanliness is not your priority it's a place for you.

I was there for a week. I had an amazing stay. I was there all by myself and they had so many activities so u cn make some new friends. I also had a great new year celebration. The room was okay. Dont expect too much as long as it's clean enough then i'll be fine. The location is perfect . Beach is around the corner . Good place good people :)
