The location of this hostel is nested between all the expensive hotels. The rooms are old, but clean and very spacious when it comes to hostel standards. Met a great bunch of people. It is one road away from the beach and very centrally located if u want to explore the Waikiki and Honolulu area by foot or hire a...

Unfortunately the forst night we needed to sleep seperately! Otherwise you have your own kitchen and bathroom! They breakfast is included, you get toast with peanutbutter and jelly:) The...

Location: 1 block from Waikiki Beach near the zoo. A take out place was there and bicycle and motorbike rental. Dorms: I stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was split into 2 rooms of 2 bunk beds with 1 bathroom and fridgerator. If the rooms were a bit bigger, would have been better. There was a locker for...

I was passing through Hawaii and had an overnight layover, so gave this hostel a shot primarily to save money. It was not worth the savings. I was in a shared room (4 males). My room was on the street, so it was quite noisy. There was no AC on our side of the shared space, and even though it...

Basically it's a good hostel which offers all facilities you need. The hostel is located very close to the beach. It's like a three minutes walk from there. The rooms are pretty clean because the friendly staff takes care about them every day. Unfortunately there are still cockroaches running through the room. Two things really annoyed me: The wifi and...

This place is perfect for young people who cannot spent too much money, is very close to the beach and not exspensive. The room are not too big but you need just to sleep and take shower so is not a big deal, the problem it was the breakfast was not satisfied, just bread and peanuts butter nothing else.

My friend and I had booked a semi-private room at this hostel. Our room was the back room with an own balcony and you could lock the door so that the inhabitants of the front room couldn't access your room. Private locker for your valuable is available for each person individually next to the bathroom. The kitchen is in the...

“Top floor is furthest from the ground noise - trade off is you're also furthest from the WiFi and have to walk up stairs to your room!”
