You’ll be able to see, hear and smell the sea when you stay with us at Polynesian Hostel Beach Club Waikiki. 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.

    I loved this Hostel. I only wish we had stayed longer. From the moment we checked in staff were super friendly and accommodating. The facilities were clean and chill. Free pancake breakfast (which would have cost ~$40 at our last place), free beach items to use, and located a block from the beach. I would 100% stay again!

    Good basic accomodation. Can't complain they offer good value for money, and provide a lot on very little resources. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. (last night tonight and leave in the morning)

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for 8 nights and we loved it! The staff is excellent, super kind and helpful. The hostel is right next to the beach and there’s tons of tiny shops and restaurants within walking distance. We walked to the Safeway which was about 25 minutes but you can also take the bus or drive. There’s tons of activities you can book through the hostel, we did the Sunday snorkel and sail and it was by far one of our favourite days. There’s free pancake breakfast here too!

    PHBC is a chill hostel right near the beach in Waikiki. The staff was all very friendly & helpful. The kitchen/common area was all outside on the ground level & was fairly small (only one kitchen sink/oven/microwave) which made it a pain during peak meal times. The 3 fridges was somehow adequate, though. They need to remove the smoking section from the common area as it was way too dirty for non-smokers. Make them go out front. My 4 person dorm + private room + ensuite was big/clean enough.

    I had a shared room (with me as the only woman) and the room was a bit muggy and smelled like pee. It was also very loud from the noises from the street and people snoring loudly. The hosel seemed old but it was fine for my overnight stay. Good for a cheap place to stay for the night.

    Rip in the bedding. Stains on the towels. It was right before coronavirus started and some of the people staying there were coughing really hard and that was concerning enough to make me leave. One of the girls got locked in our room because of the way the lock was constructed so even after trying multiple keys we couldn’t help her and they had to break in. It was very dirty. Not like what I am used to I guess from hostels in the rest of the world.
