This hostel has a great location and of course the price was right. I just didn't like how the WIFI did not work in the rooms. What really bothered me was the WIFI not working strongly in the main areas where they said it would be working. Sleeping here was okay but there's nothing anyone can do about the outside...

Area is secure, need to pass a gate to get to the hostel. Well located, 5min walk to everything: grocery, restaurants, beach, etc. Staff is present and helpful. The open air area with the hammocks is great and the breeze is most welcome at night. The downside is that there are some bugs, and even found a cockroach at our...

Stayed at Seaside Hawaiian hostel at the end of June for three nights in a dorm. The hostel is back off Seaside avenue and has a good security gate at the entrance. Arrived to check in and was told the rate had gone up from $35/night as quoted on my deposit receipt to 39/night. Bit annoyed but nothing I can...

The staff is friendly and helpful. They made us feel welcome and relaxed. Our ever need was accommodated with the utmost care and respect. Some of the perks: breakfast every morning. snorkel gear, extra towels and boogie boards for the beach. And laundry service on site. We are already planning our next trip to Hawaii and plan to stay here!

This is my first experience of a hostel and so glad I read the reviews of the other places I might have stayed instead. this one is a treasure. Enjoyed chatting to other guests and had good sleeps despite the constant Waikiki background noise. My only...

The staff were a friendly, helpful bunch. The other guests were respectful and polite. We have never felt so at home away from home. The idea that a traveler would choose to stay at a hostel, and then complain that it wasn't like a posh hotel is outrageous. The rooms and kitchens are clean, the sheets were washed and lovely....

This is about the most unfriendly and ungrateful place you could stay at!The first time I stayed at this place was noisy and unpleasant during the weekends.There were numerous roaches,ants and rats around the kitchen and communal dining area. The drunkenness of the guests and those who are the employees are not worth having your vacation ruined by drunks who...
