This place pretty much had it all. The free (and really good food) on Tuesday and Saturday were great. Cool set up of the rooms and outside common area. It closes at 10 pm, so be prepared to go out. I wish they were a little more proactive about what tours to go on, etc., but nonetheless a great spot.

Nice neighborhood, close to the beach. Loved the Pizza and BBQ Event on the rooftopbar, good idea to get to know other guests from the hostel. Staff always helpfull, e.g finding a rental car.

Good hostel. Good location, good facilities, probably the best hostel in Honolulu (though I haven't been to any others!).

Had a fantastic time here. The staff is friendly and are always around to help out. It is only a few minutes from the beach but if you want to do other things they will help you get things booked. I met so many wonderful people here from around the world and they have some group activities for guests that are fun aswell. The rooftop is great for hanging out or just relaxing if you are to tired/hungover to do anything or even have a couple drinks with friends in the evening.

I found out this place used to have a bed bug issue and while they assured me the problem was taken care of and there were no more bed bugs in the facility, I couldn't sleep in my bed because there was very clear evidence of this past bed bug issue (ie bed bug blood/feces stains on the mattress cover and some molts/exoskeletons on the bed frame). In my opinion, even if the problem occurred awhile ago, you need to clean it up better - at least get new mattress covers.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend New Years. Super friendly, super clean and super fun. Highly recommend...way better than any of the other places in Waikiki for an all round hostel

We enjoyed our stay there. Very helpful and nice staff. Nice atmosphere. Valuable facilities including a large top roof/lounge with cool travelers hanging up there. Still small enough structure to get a good sense of community. Sooooo much better than the other close-by hostel we stayed in after.

Wifi was weak in the rooms, but aside from that the staff was extremely helpful! I had a fantastic time there -- Hostel had planned events and staff would take us out. Overall a great experience.

Great location and comfortable rooms. Staff was friendly, but not fully knowledgable about local landmarks. I would certainly recommend this hostel and stay there again.

This hostel is on a street with many other hotels next to Waikiki beach therefore it is a great location. The rooms each have their own fridge bathroom and kitchen area (although you can't cook in your room, the extra sink is useful). Additionally, there is a very nice rooftop area with a bathroom, cooking area, and many places to sit. The staff are friendly and can help book some cars and trips. Breakfast is offered, however, it is mostly muffins and bread so I stored my own healthier food.

Very good hostel but the staff is not always willing to help you. Especially Jose only provides help for Things he likes to do.
