Stayed at the Beachside hostel for 4 days at the end of November. This place is in a GREAT location, about 2 mins to Waikiki Beach, bars and shopping. We managed to get a bed for 13$ a night online (they were having a sale, look out for them). Davis usually runs the front desk, very helpful and friendly guy....

The staff were very helpful and friendly. They gave advice on what to see and where to catch the buses. Waikiki beach is only a 3 min walk from the hostel and it's close to an ABC store and restaurants. They have a kitchenette in all of the rooms but not many plates or utensils. The hostel is very large...

The staff are great and very helpful with finding places in Honolulu. The kitchens are a bit sparse, but there is a breakfast of toast and coffee given. There is also an onspot kitchen for having breakfast. The location is also great being 2 mins from the beach!

This place was nice, clean enough (espicially for a hostel) and a major league outfielder could throw a ball and hit the beach from the hostel. The staff was amazing friendly too. If I return to Waikiki, I will stay here again--even if I am not traveling solo.

The location is really good since the beach is 200 meters away and the main street is around the corner. The staff here is wonderful and are always around to give a helping hand and tips on what to do here on Oahu. We been staying here for a month and we have enjoyed EVERY night here!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Hostel is very close to Waikiki beach, and everything is in walking distance. Every dorm has a kitchen and bathroom, so you share only with the people in the dorm. An improvement would be if they also have towels available. Furthermore they have simple free breakfast (toast with peanut butter and jelly).
