The hostel international Waikiki was the best little slice of paradise. They had great facilities, it was good value, helpful and efficient staff. Because alcohol is not allowed, everyone got on so well together. I'll definitely come back again one day. Rent your car through the hostel, it's much more convenient and efficient.

It was a great hostel in a perfect location. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were basic but my bed was comfortable and that's all I really wanted. For the price of the dorm room compared to the location of the hostel, I have no real complaints. The common room and kitchen were always clean. I met...

A very positive first stay at a hostel. I recommend it for the location, price and for the Aloha. The hostel staff is friendly and helpful, the kitchen neat and clean, and it was easy to meet (or not) fellow guests lounging/wifi-ing in the common area most days. One morning as I eavesdropped, an adventure to the other side of...

The location and price of this hostel can not be beaten. My partner and I shared a private room with a bathroom for $58 a night. The room was small, simple, and clean. Waikiki Beach is less than a five minute walk away, and there are countless shops, and restaurants in the vicinity. We did not spend a lot of...

We were not quite sure what to expect, the reviews on trip advisor were positive & this assisted us in our booking. I've stayed in a hostel before & it wasn't the best experience of hosteling but this place changed my mind.

So I stayed at Hi Waikiki for about 6 nights and it was so much fun! I stayed here for a conference and was traveling alone, but it was so nice to meet people and to go to happy hour and to the night market. Although I'm at the conference during the day they had many tours on, going to...
