We stayed in a private which was connected to one of the dorm rooms. Bed was pretty comfy. Had a good stay overall, although the bathroom in our room was pretty moldy. Other rooms had nicer bathrooms though. Overall it wasn't bad, and the location is perfect, only a block from the beach and nearby a few other hostels.

The wifi wasn't working and when we told the stuff that it isn't working, they just said that it should work, again and again. Our room and the bathroom were really dirty. The stove in the kitchen was old and not clean. The location is ok and they offer free pancakes in the morning.

Good location, but not the cleanest rooms or friendliest staff.

pots and pans in the kitchen for the studio unit could do with replacement, several of the bottoms were not flat so it makes it harder to heat and cook.

I slept in a 4er dorm for women. It was plactical to have a bathroom inside the room, but it was not realy clean and water didn't come from the tap on the sink. The shower worked. The room was a passage way for an another room. The breakfast with coffee and pancakes was very fine.

The staff was nice. The location is perfect. It is close to the beach and the night life. The rooms was good, but the bathroom needs a renovation and a little bit of celaning. Everything else was ok.

This hostel was adequate. I was only there for a one night stay. The room was dirty and had only one lamp for the entire room. This lamp seemed to move around the room as well. The bathroom was not very clean and there was window missing and covered with a tarp. The common area was decent and did not have the best kitchen. The staff was the best thing about this place. They were all nice and helpful. The location is right next to all kinds of restaurants, bars, shops, etc.

This place was horrible! We stayed less than 4 hours total before we checked out and had to find a new place to stay. The place was filthy. The bathroom must have never been cleaned. The sheets were stained. And customer service was horrific. They REFUSED to refund or money. It makes me question of we will use the Hostel World website again. It was that bad.

Good Hostel. The manager, Shelly, is an ANGEL and a goddess amongst men. Location is great (close to bus stops, libraries, bars, beach, the zoo, etc..) Some of the staff have been there too long and have become rude and unhelpful. Other than that it was a good stay.

Surfboards were not the best. Would have been nice to have more guidance considering I never got sized for one before. Spent the afternoon not being able to even paddle out to the waves and fighting to stay on. Lilos were a nice touch. Pillows were shockingly bad. Enjoyed the excursions on offer. Staff were pleasant. Liked the HUGE lockers in the rooms.

Great location, but you get what you pay for... Or you don't? We stayed in a "private" room among a mixed 8-bed dorm sharing one bathroom - one toilet, one sink, one mirror, and one shower. If we didn't wake up at the crack of the dawn we'd never use the facilities! Would it kill them to clean the tub once in a while? The communal kitchen was small, cluttered, and not well kept. Overall, it's OK if you're literally just sleeping and need somewhere within walking distance to Waikiki.

The water pressure was very low and it looked like part of the wall was removed and covered up with a plastic bag until it could be repaired. The bathroom cleanliness overall was decent but it could use a deep cleaning as everything just seemed weathered and not maintained very well. This was room #201.

The staff and regulars at the hostel make this a fantastic place to stay. If you don't know what you are doing or where you want to go, they will point you in the right direction and help you out. They were my family away from home and I didn't want to leave. Thank you all so much for such an amazing experience! I can't wait to return!

I was a bit disappointed of the tours. I think they are overpriced ($25 for hostel guests) and badly organized. Some of the staff is very helpful, others sometimes acted a bit rude. I liked the get-togethers in the evenings. All in all an average experience :-)
