    What an amazing place to stay!! One of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed at and you can’t beat the price being a block away from the beach. The staff has been excellent throughout my stay. I came without a plan and they were always eager to talk to me and give me suggestions on what to do. It’s very easy to find people to do things with if you’re a solo traveler. Everyone was so friendly and I’m glad I chose to stay here. It really doesn’t get any better than this!

    Love this hostel! It is in the perfect location where you could walk to the beach, shops, & food- perfect for somebody without a car. Even though you are in the heart of it all, it is an extremely safe and quiet property. The staff has done an excellent job at maintaining the property and regularly cleaning, especially in this new covid world. I planned on staying for two nights only, however when I got here I kept extending. This is arguably the best place to stay on Oahu.

    I was not able to stay at the hostel. Up on my arrival I tried calling the hostel however the phone number given on the hostel world web site did not work. I tried emailing and the email was not responded to for 24 hours. Up on my arrival I decided to take a cab to the hostel. When I arrived at the hostel The volunteer at the desk was not able to answer any of my questions. Management was not accessible or responsive in my experience.

    I called to try and change my stay (from 1 night to 1 week) and the guy I spoke to thought I was trying to cancel, told me to call back in an hour, and then avoided my calls the rest of the day. Bad service. Choose a hostel with better customer service, IMO.
