Got upgraded from a 4 bed dorm to a private room which was so great. Nice hostel. The staff are excellent - so friendly and full of great advice. Free beer is super and price is reasonable :) Would stay here again

This is a beautiful hostel and well worth the money. You can also easily get public transport from the airport ($2.50 compared to $40 on the shuttle). Great place to see a different part of Hawaii with great food

Purchased airport transfer but had to pay again on the shuttle as I wasn't given a ticket. Hostel refunded me but this caused a lot of hassle the morning I was leaving. Spend 2-3 extra $ and stay somewhere else as this is more suited to long term guests that are living there. It;s not clean and wifi is not cheap

Hey there, thanks for your feedback! We think our hostel is pretty great too! :) You’ll be happy to know we are looking into getting under-bed storage lockers put into the rooms. Hope you can come back and check it out sometime. Happy travels! The Base Uptown Crew

Great hostel. Very expensive key deposit and they seemed to try and take it from you at every turn but apart from this great location and facilities

View Property Reply

Thank you for the comment Amy. $30 key deposit is refundable Amy. Almost everyone get this back at their check out. I am sure you got yours at your check out. We are keeping a key deposit at the guest's check in to make sure that the linen crockery and the keys being returned at their check out. Also we provide an assurance to our guest that their stay is comfortable and safe. Thank you for choosing us through Hostel World. We wish you good luck with your travel plans.

Cons: 30 dollar key deposit is very expensive Check in was disappointing as the staff were only interested in taking money and did not explain where toilets were etc The key that I was given for the locker in the room was for someone else's locker so their laptop passport etc were there when I opened it - not very secure One locker for two paying guests Breakfast is toast and little of it Pros: Cheap as singapore is very expensive Very close to the MRT Comfy beds
