Property Information:

Enjoy a traditional hostelling experience at the only family run hostel in Waikiki. We are in the middle of Waikiki minutes away from beaches, restaurants, shopping and clubs. Our Banyan Courtyard is very popular with our guests and promotes a unique and friendly atmosphere.

Whether sharing cooking duties for a meal in our central kitchen, having a pleasant conversation with new found friends in our comfortable Banyan Courtyard, or Skyping with loved ones and family back home we can be your base of exploration while in Hawaii.

We are one of the smallest, and only, family owned and run hostels in Waikiki. We like to party, but party doesn't get in the way of adventure. We strive to create an environment where you can be among friends, both old and new, yet still get enough sleep to charge ahead tomorrow.

We are situated on Seaside Avenue which is at the geographic center of Waikik between Kuhio Avenue which is the main bus route and Ala Wai Boulevard which runs alongside the Ala Wai canal. We are a 3 block walk to the beach with the main bus route and direct airport shuttle service almost at our doorstep. There are more than 4 clubs and 10 pubs within a 5 minute walk or less.

We have eight dorm rooms with from four to six beds and between. Female and 4-bed dorms have privacy curtains. All except our lowest cost dorms have a lockable storage locker for each guest.

Rate does not include tax. The balance is subject to state of Hawaii hotel tax (9.25%) and sales tax (4.712%)
Other things to remember:
Toilets and bathrooms are mixed except in the female dorms
There is no charge for bed linens and towels
Luggage storage and free shower for those with late flights
Laundry service $4 for wash & dry

    Staff would not help with directions or advice on what to do on the island. They just wanted to get on with texting whoever they were talking to. I thought it was just me but after speaking to the other guests, it was not personal! The beds are soooooo uncomfortable. Again I thought this was a one off (after 14months travelling, sometimes there is a one off) but again, I found a lot of people weren't sleeping through the night. No atmosphere, activities in the hostel.
