Come and live the laid-back beach lifestyle, and join us in our outdoor hangout where we get everyone together for drinks and barbecues. When the swell’s up, you can hire one of our surfboards or borrow a free snorkel. Our motto is 'come as guests, leave as friends’ – that’s why we offer free pancake breakfasts every morning, and loads of trips around the island to get everyone socialising. We're also eco-friendly, so staying here helps us to protect the surrounding reefs and beaches.


We’re a 45-minute ride away from Honolulu International Airport. When you land, just hop on a shuttle bus – it'll drop you at our front door. To take the public bus, catch the number 9 or 20 to Waikiki Beach from the airport's second-floor departure lounge. You’ll find us a short walk from here. We can make your stay super exciting, packing your itinerary with DJ boat cruises, Pearl Harbour day trips and Hanauma Bay snorkelling. Come and chat to us at reception if you want to book – we're here 24/7.

Extras and activities

Make days on the beach more comfortable with our free beach chairs, mats and funky inflatables. When you get in, we’ve got hammocks on our outside terrace, cable TV, games and free Wi-Fi. If all that sunbathing is making you hungry, you can cook up hot meals in our communal kitchen. On a road trip? You’ll be pleased to know there's on-site parking.

    Great stay. We left early because my companions dad bought us a hotel room at a resort and couldn’t turn that down. They refunded us for the nights we didn’t stay without us asking or expecting that. It’s a basic place but that’s what we wanted for the trip.

    No lockers with secret code (need to bring your padlock) and breakfast is a bit simple, only pancakes.

    Very friendly helpful staff. The place was as clean as a building in Hawaii can be. The breakfast was great and filling. I really enjoyed the location and chill vibe of the place. They have a lot of beach things you can use or rent. Overall I was pleased and would stay there again.

    super noisy location - I knew this about the location, but also, squeaky bunk beds & huge white noise fan in the room. was fine for a night when we were strapped by an early morning flight and needed to be in honolulu, but I'd rather CAMP.

    Very Good

    Staff was not at all friendly, just one of them smiled. The room was nice but they don't have many common areas or activities to get people to know each other, a weird empty feeling overall for a fully booked hostel. No common bathrooms so if you need to go or to take a shower while waiting for your flight then you're not gonna get much help.

    Fantastic staff working a substandard property. Good location, but virtually no amenities in a rather dated building.

    All rooms in this four-story Waikiki hostel (two blocks from the beach) face a similar 1-star building with lanai's (balconies), across an alley and retaining wall, a distance of 40 feet. The arguing and loud noise in three particular units began at 4am, and had not ceased by the time I checked out at 8am. No authority appeared to ask them to quiet down. Judged from the night of January 6, 2020 only, it's an okay facility if sleep is optional i.e. not necessary.

    They have an ant problem and definitely saw cockroaches + 2x I had to take cold shower.Wouldn’t stay here again. The staff were super nice and I met great friends while there but the cleanliness and comfort level leaves something to be desired.

    Awful.Absolutely disgusting.The trash is emptied only 2x /week and the place 'swept' 1 /week.Not sure when if ever the bathroom is cleaned.More than sand the bathroom has hair everywhere, stains in the toilet, a dirty shower etc. No soap in the bathrooms, common bathroom wreaks of urine.Another rooms toilet was broken whole time.Staff is a clique not fun.No activities (blackboard has wrong times), ppl don't go 2gother.No AC, only a sheet so go to bed hot, wake up cold. Doors don't close...unsafe
