Honestly location is very good as you are just a block from Waikiki beach but unfortunately this is the only good point consider that I spent 37$ per night! - Common area is an open garage - Rooms with a kitchen inside are too small for 8 beds and consider that it seems you sleep in a kitchen! - rent...

I stayed here on my last night while in Hawaii. Their service was reliable and professional. They have many resources at the desk and the desk staff are willing to help you locate information or must-sees in the city. The hostel doesn't have an elevator but the rooms are clean and quiet.

We rented a private triple and were very happy. Had AC, comfy beds and a great shower. Parking right out front was free until 5pm then $10-15 overnight which was perfect as we had a rental car. Location was great, we walked around safely. Staff were great and let us change before our check-in time. Would stay here again.

there is no mistaking this place as anything else but a hostel with a large turnover of visitors. very run down and worn. luckily, just needed a place to store my luggage, bed to sleep and a shower. also, wifi on fourth floor very unreliable. i give it points for having an excellent location. only a block away from the...

The location is perfectly situated. A minutes walk to Waikiki beach and the zoo! There are two bus stops just around the corner from the hostel for just $2.50 (one way) can get you where you need to be on the island!! The staff at the front desk are very helpful and informative. Being a young female travelling by myself...

I rented a single spot in a 4-bed room. The rooms are previous 1BR / 1BA / 1 living room apartments. The bedroom in mine was converted to a semi-private room with a small AC. The living room which is by the door and kitchenette had two single beds very close to each about (about 2 feet) which made it...

Fast and easy check in and out. Clean and comfortable. I bunked with several types of traveller's but two young ladies from Europe asked to go surfing too. I was happy to oblige, it's the right thing to do....SHARE THE STOKE! And we were all stoked to a great morning set of waves.

It is one of the cheapest hostels in Honolulu and thats also what you will get. It is hard to find contact to others because it is quite big. But the location is great. You are just minutes away from the waikiki beach and also the busstop to get around. For low budget traveler like us, it is good.

It's a nice place to stay. Some of the rooms are with kitchen. The quality of cleaning depends on the housekeeper. Some of them are really precise, another ones are not. The main building needs reconstruction - the doors to the balconies are too old and it's hard to open/close them. No air conditioners in the big rooms. The windows...

Our hostel came with a room that has air con and we had to share it with another 2 patrons. One night was about $40. Pretty decent for a room that has a toilet and shower facilities (shared between 4 people), a comfortable bed with pillows, bedsheets and blanket. There's also a kitchen and stove. You can make your own...

“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!”
