The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. Great place to meet other travellers or hang out with the staff :p. The dorm and bathrooms were clean enough, but the kitchen was, you know, standard hostel-cleanish.


Mosquito infested, steaming hot mess with broken taps and steaming hot rooms, I didn't expect aircon but at least well ventilated rooms without mosquitos would have been good. Cleanliness was other concern. The entire place could do with a bit more TLC.


Good Hostel and a decent location, staff was very friendly and helpful, good friendly vibes all around and wonderful system implemented for travelers to get to exchange experiences/meet/get rides. If you're a magnet for mosquitoes like me bring bug spray but that can be said of anywhere in Hawaii really.


He was very nice , but I just think that the sistem is not to good, my reservation didn't appear , but he helped to me Anyway . All the people there was nice .
