It was too loud to sleep and people were outside at 2AM talking. The staff said it was to be quiet after 10pm but no one reminded the people There are staff at the site 24/7 so why couldn't they do something? With only 1 bathroom and 8 people, it was difficult to wash and even pee. I would NOT tell anyone to stay there


Great place to stay and meet other travellers, close to all the tourist things youll ever need.


pros: excellent location, super close to the beach awesome meals cooked by Kevin - his chocolate & pineapple cake is amazing! Shelley on reception is SUPER helpful 8-bed dorm spacious cons: a lot of long-term guests give it an odd atmosphere staff (other than Shelley) were unhelpful and uninterested could be cleaner


I had a brilliant stay at the Polynesian Hostel Beach Club Waikiki! Staff was brilliant, the hostel organizes great tours to discover the island and the atmosphere is really fun and friendly. Truly recommend it. Would definitely stay there again. And the location could not be better! 1 min walk from Waikiki beach!

fantastic place


My stay at the Polynesian hostel was fantastic. It was by far one of my most memorable weeks. The staff was helpful and the atmosphere was extremely friendly. In the end, I was honestly sad to leave all my new friends.

Overall, it's an ok hostel. It's in a great location and very cheap for this area of Hawaii. It's not the cleanest or nicest and the staff were minimally helpful, but it was a decent place to stay for a quick layover in Waikiki Beach.


Only one stove in the hostel for what we calculated to be 200+ guests. And only 2 fridges. The 'private room shared bathroom' was inside the dorm - and the room was super basic (bed, bin, fan). Personally I think a mirror and maybe a small desk or beside table would give the private room an extra touch. Only one toilet/shower to share between the 8person dorm and private. Fine, but one other toilet in entire hostel to use if there is a queue for the bathroom- which had zero airflow too.


Great location. Quiet at night. Great day tours around the island. Good value. A great place to stay.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! As a couple we stayed in one of the private rooms, which was nice to unwind in after a day of exploring, but the general vibe around the rest of the hostel was great. Loved the free pancake breakfast in the mornings, and the staff were all so pleasant to deal with, and very helpful in arranging transportation, recommending activities, etc. And the location is PERFECT! Would definitely stay here again/recommend it to anyone travelling to Waikiki.


Great location and staff.. So friendly and nice with foreigners thank you everyone!


Great location, helpful staff


Probably one of my favourite hostels I've stayed in. Perfect location (so close to the beach!), great atmosphere, and friendly staff. And the fluffiest pancakes ever served for breakfast! Will be returning, and would recommend to anyone n a heartbeat.
