The sheets, bedding and mattress were extremely old and dirty. The entire building was shabby. It is very close to the beach which is a plus


We stayed there 2 different occasions, and we stayed in the semiprivate rooms. The first room we had was good, but the second one looked like a big closet with a bed in the middle... It didn't have any furniture except for the bed, there were no windows, the only light on the room was the closet one and we were sharing a restroom for 10 people. The location is great, right next to the waikiki beach, the kitchen and atmosphere are good, but overall it is not a good value for money


Helpful staff, nice hostel.


I have been use hostelworld.com last year to book my last trip to Singapore, it was good . This hostel has it good location but it is very unclean and the door handle in bath room is falling. I am stay in a motel in LA now with a clean own bedroom and bathroom with even lower price.


the hostel staff are very kind and helpful. location is amazing..walk to the beach in 2 minutes and find everything you need at so many shops and restaurants. getting to and from airport is easy unless you have an early flight. buses start at 5:30 am. the trip is about an hour and 13 minutes.

The staff is amazing but the rooms are old and not so clean. The atmosphere in this hostel is great! They also have cool tours! Shawn, Rafael and Margaret are great people who work there and make people enjoy the time in Waikiki. They also prepare pancakes for breakfast.


Ok for a few nights, atmosphere is ok, seems that there are quite a few long time guests who always hang out in the common room. Not enough tables and chairs etc. for most people there. Cleaning could be improved.


Kitchen area is small and shared with all guests. Private rooms are beautiful though you feel like your in an ikea catalogue. But the bathrooms shared with the other 6 roommates who are in bunks in a room beside you. Pancakes in the morning. The lady who cooks is awesome but the rest of staff are pretty whatever about your stay, probably because its such a huge hostel. They also have pretty good deals for day trips around the island.


I change of room 3 times in four days.... The people in the reception is not very helpful there are some that are very nice but others are very arrogant..I did like the service I was expecting more...


Staff are mega chilled


Nice Hostel with a great location. Only the harsh 10pm closing of the social area does not really allow for the typical "hostel feeling".

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this hostel. They had excellent staff, were well located and had great tours. Thanks guys!!


I booked here for 2 nights but ended up staying for 25 nights.. Amazing family atmosphere in this hostel. I had the best time ever and met amazing people! Tours are run 6 days per week.. Its 1 or 2 blocks from Waikiki beach. Say hi to Pappa Shaun, Shirley and Margret from me :)


too less amenities for the amount of people!
