I recently spent 2 nights in plantation village and had a great time!! The cabin I stayed in was a 6 bed dorm style. The cabin had a refrigerator but no stove (not to worry theres great inexpensive food carts located close by), a sink and plenty of dishes. The bathroom was cleanish, you have to remember that it's cleaned...

We planed to stay there for 7 nights, but when we entered our privat room, we immediately changed our minds.. The DOUBLE bed filled out the full room. The room was dark and dirty. You couldn't open the windows and the dust was piling up on the fan and walls. There was nothing to store stuff, not even hangers on...

Not only is the place reasonably priced, the beach and the location draws young people from all over the world. The bunks are not the most comfortable, but they are adequate and the place is paradise. They serve free dinners on some nights and the entertainment all around the people is amazing. The place is across the street from the...

Only budget accomodation we could find on the norh shore. Its hostel type of accomodation so very basic but clean and at least cheaper than hotels. You can also rent surfboad or bike there. We would come back. Wi-fi is paid in rooms but for free in one of the houses.

Dirty, smelly and run down, no air conditioning and expensive for its condition. We had booked a studio unit so I would hate to think what the backpackers is like. We refused to stay there and asked for a refund. Luckily found a much nicer place just down the road. The guy at the desk didn't really care if we...

I stayed in Cabin 4, Bedroom B. I was not told when I first booked that there were two bedrooms in this cabin, nor given a choice of bedrooms. I think since I booked first I should have been asked which bedroom I wanted. "A" has windows facing two directions, neither of which is the setting sun and B has...

I think it's always funny when people staying in a hostel complain about the conditions. It's cheap for a reason people! My boyfriend and I had a great time here, yeah there were bugs, good luck getting away from them in Hawaii, and yeah things were a bit old but the people working there and staying there were great and...

As it was difficult to find online accomodation in the North Shore area for less than 3 nights, we booked Plantation Village cabin 3 for 2 nights....what a BIG mistake. It rated as 2 star accom so we thought it might be simple but were horrified to see how dilapidated, old, broken and pest riddled it was ( doesn't help...

This was not what I was expecting. The room had no AC, but was huge. The sliding glass door to the balcony barely worked, but the screen was busted, so we couldn't leave it open anyway. The bed was uncomfortable, the place seemed dirty (dusty). I guess I should have lowered my expectations with the work Backpackers in the title,...

Great experience staying in one of the many cabins. Right on the beach at the top of Oahu, very social area, met loads of great people and had a wicked time! Not as clean as it could have been but what you expect for the rates. Would definitely stay there again and recommend!
