We only stayed here one night . The staff was nice enough to let us store our luggage until it was time to check in. Very close to Waikiki. Cheaper than staying in a hotel. The bathroom wasn't very clean, even after the cleaning crew came through. We stayed in a mixed 8 bed dorm. It was noisy from the street and also from the lounge area. Bunk bed was rickety and swayed when I climbed up. Stay here to save money.


Service minimum.


Good location, good staff! Could be more clean, especially in the bathrooms. Free breakfast is a good idea but should open at 7am like other hostels not only from 9am till 10am.


Really loving there, definitely come back there :D

The location is perfect! Staff were really nice. Definitely going to come back..


i asked the stuff to book the shuttle to the airport. and the driver, roberts express shuttle, required 30usd for one way. usually 30(28) usd for 2 ways. i payed it caz no time for check in the flight. but very complain. its not the hostel service for shuttle but the stuff should make sure the price before booking. so new guests should be carefully to book the shuttle to the airport. http://www.airportwaikikishuttle.com/jp/

There is a guy that works at the front desk that has deeds. Something is wrong with him, he is on a high horse and needs to step down. Made the time there awkward, he just yells at everyone.

Stayed in an 8 bed female dorm, only small lockers that you have to pay for and not enough for everyone in the room. Should provide big lockers for free. Hostel is noisy at night, which is ok if you are going out but not if you are staying in so perhaps stay somewhere else if you want more peace and quiet. Rooms were well cleaned with a mini kitchen and bathroom well provided. Perhaps could provide better blinds/curtains too as had barely anything so light woke us up.


Loved this hostel! It was fun of fun solo travelers! it is the most social hostel I have stayed at! Staff are amazing!!


In general, the hostel was good. Nevertheless, offering only toast with marmalade or peanut butter for breakfast is quite less.


The location is amazing. Beds really good! Breakfast average. Good amenities. But the staff could have been better...


Wonderful hostel, great place to stay.


Love the location and the staff were top-notch. Stayed in building C, which I’m told was new. No lockers in the rooms, so had to bug staff to store my laptop when I wanted to hit the beach. Hopefully they’ll correct this....


Nice location...The breakfast was minimal but free. Free is hard to beat. Plus there's a breakfast nook operating next to it or in it. I could go back...
