Property Description

Any guest that fails to notify us within the allotted time period will not have their reservation honored. Thank you for your understanding.

Be part of our gang at Seaside Hawaiian Hostel Waikiki. We're a family-run hostel that believes in keeping travelling affordable! Help yourself to a free breakfast
 of coffee, tea and toast then borrow a boogie board or snorkel from reception for free. We do cheap surfboard rental, too, because the beach is only steps away! If you need some downtime, our banyan courtyard is a tranquil refuge from the nearby street bars. There's also a barbecue if you fancy dinner here.


We’re central to the Waikiki neighbourhood of Honolulu. From Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, take bus 19 or 20 to Kuhio Avenue (about an hour's ride) and we’re a one-minute walk from there. Fancy a hike to an extinct volcano? Diamond Head is a 14-minute drive away. Or, sun yourself on the sands at Hanauma Bay, 24 minutes by car. Catch the sunset hula and soak up the Hawaiian music show in the evening at Kuhio Beach Park, a 15-minute walk from us, or simply settle down on the bay and watch the surfers.

Rooms and Dorms

You can sleep moments from the beach in our mixed and female-only dorms. We’ll provide you with free linen and towels at check-in so you can travel hand-luggage only. Flick on the ceiling fan to keep cool when the heat creeps up. You can store your backpack out of the way in a locker – just bring a padlock with you.

Extras and activities

Save some dollars in our fully equipped kitchen where you can cook dinner each night. Settle down for a movie night in the lounge – with our free Wi-Fi, you can stream a new release or an old favourite. Need your washing done? Try our next-day service for a small fee. When you move on elsewhere, drop off your old books at our exchange and pick up a new read for the next leg of your adventure.

    Location, location, location. Half a block from the Hyatt. Close to the beach, shopping. The property is small, not crowded at all. Staff (esp. Robin) were super friendly and helpful. Vending machines, TV in common area. Overall, had a great stay.

    Seaside Hawaiian Hostel Waikiki is a great hostel! The rates are fair, staff (especially Robin) is very friendly/helpful/attentive, facilities are very clean and large and the room I was in (2) was large, clean and quiet. The kitchen is large enough (overall it's a small hostel), very clean and well equipped. The only complaint I have, which is minor, is that the hostel laundry room is directly connected to room 2 and if you go to bed early expect to hear the machines/people until about 11:00pm

    Everyone there especially Robin were fantastic and did everything possible to accommodate you. Great location, quiet, and safe. Would absolutely return again. Excellent access to the beach, if you want a surfboard, they have those as well. Nothing like being a couple blocks from the beach and having the Hawaiian breeze blowing.

    A nice simple little hostel in the heart of Waikiki! The staff was so friendly, the gate made me feel secure and I felt it was well worth the money spent. My only complaint was the noise heard constantly from the streets but with open windows and a bustling area it’s an understandable problem. Headphones fixed my problem in an instant. Would stay again! Highly recommend.

    Considering this place offers the cheapest bed in Waikiki you definitely get bang for your buck. I enjoyed my stay here as a solo female traveller and met some awesome people during my stay. Felt super safe and comfortable, free breakfast was a perk and the rooms were no frills however I really appreciated that the bathrooms were adjoined to the rooms and that the shower wasn’t a cubicle! Overall great base for a chilled few days exploring Oahu!

    I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at Seaside Hawaiian Hostel Waikiki . The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bathroom in our dorm was cleaned every day. The other guests followed noise curfews, and kept the dorm "tidy." I gave an indifferent rating for cleanliness because: I was there just when Covid-19 was beginning to be a major concern in North America. I didn't notice any special attempt at disinfecting common surfaces during my stay (bedsteads, countertops, tables and chairs,etc.)

    The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast served was simple: toasts and coffee. I like how spacious the room is, as well as the lockers provided. One of the window glass panel was missing in the room I was staying in and the wind made the room cold at night. However, they provide extra heavier blankets if you need some to keep warm.
