Property Description

Welcome to The Seaside Hawaiian Hostel, the original and only family-owned and operated hostel in Waikiki. For over two decades, we have been the spot for backpackers and travelers of all ages who are looking for an easy-going and laid-back atmosphere in Oahu.

Step outside of our gates and you will find yourself mere minutes away from all that Waikiki has to offer- city exploring, world-class restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and of course, the world-famous Waikiki Beach. But while you're within the walls of our property, you'll find nothing but peace, calm, and the best vibes.

We're located centrally in the Waikiki neighborhood of Honolulu. We are also 2 short blocks from Waikiki beach and walking distance from everything else in Waikiki like surf spots, dining, shopping, parks and coffee shops.

To get to us from the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, take bus 19 or 20 to Kuhio Avenue (about an hour ride) ride and we’re about a minute walk from the stop.

All rooms and dorms have ceiling fans. There are mixed and female-only dorms, all with shared bathrooms ensuite. All rooms have storage lockers - just bring a lock with you. Linens, bath towels and beach towels are all included.

We have a fully equipped kitchen and refrigerators so you can save and cook meals at our hostel. We have Wifi and an outdoor TV area and we will have hot coffee or tea ready for you every morning.

    In sum, I feel most of the above is based on what you establish with others, and those who prefer certain freedoms. Hotel in terms of cost and value never meets its price point, and it's very isolated which is not the desired atmosphere esp. in travels. I for one on my sojourn here had a great group of people who were intelligent, sociable, yet minded our own space with own agenda of things to do, and it was quite a delightful experience. Delta variant was ever on our minds and we kept it open.

    I had a great time staying at Seaside Hawaiian Hostel! It was a great location at a great cost too. But the main reason I had such a good time were the employees there. Cedar, Hella & Karissa were great. Karissa went out of her way to help open a bottle of wine with a lighter my first night there. Cedar and Hella were super cool and very helpful. Hella wrote down a lot of good local places to get food and Cedar was always playing good music. Super cool employees. Will def book there again!
