    Had an absolute blast during my 1 week stay here! The staff is next level, always happy to chat and help in whatever way they can including great food or activity recommendations. Such a great place to meet new friends that are doing similar things which is made so much easier with the Whatsapp group message set up by the hostel. Cannot wait to come back to Hawaii and will definitely stay here again!

    I was hesitant due to never have traveled alone or stayed in hostel before but when I checked in here with Zain, he makes you feel welcomed instantly. It is by far the best in my experience and I’m definitely coming back here in future. Zain went out his way and made best suggestion about things to do and what to eat. Everyone was very loving caring and instant friendly. Thanks Zain and Boutique Hostel for making it memorable experience for novice and for sure you’ve set the bar too HIGH!!!!!!

    I felt welcome as soon as I checked in. Tim went above and beyond to help my cousin and I get the same room since we were booked in separate dorms originally. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and always willing to help. Will for-sure be returning when I come back to Waikiki 😁😁

    The atmosfere in the hostel was amazing! All the staffs were great, super friendly and always ready to give you advice and informations. The room was good and confortable. There were some things you can use, like chairs for the beach, surfboard, snorkeling masks and a lot more. The position perfect, just a couple minutes walking to the beach and there are so many stores around. I super reccomend this hostel for your staying in Waikiki and if I go back to Hawaii, I'll go for sure there.

    Maybe a bit more expensive than an ordinary hostel experience, probably because it's in Hawai'i where most things are more expensive. Other than that, this is the hostel experience an avid hostel goer is looking for. I met great friends here, the staff are incredibly helpful, and during most times, it looks like there are overwhelming amounts of activities to do together with other guests, all well-facilitated by the staff. As said in every review, the location is unbeatable.

    I love it here! I extended my stay by two nights because it's the best and cheapest and safest option in Honolulu during covid. Thanks to all the staff for being so friendly and remembering our names and faces!

    500 characters is not enough to fully go into how awesome this hostel was. The staff where friendly, knowledgeable and approachable, and went out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed. The location was phenomenal it was a five minute walk to the beach if even that. It is super safe, someone is at the front desk at all times, the gate is locked, and there are no outside people allowed inside. I had no issue walking around this area by myself at night.
