    After I was arrested for a false Covid charge my first night in Hawaii (and after being warned of the sometimes unforgiving streets by the incredible Ross)> I found The Beach Waikiki Boutique Hostel to be a LITERAL divine cosmic blessing. Never before have I felt so immediately welcomed, respected, cared for and dare I say loved! Yes I do dare. While I’m at it I am about to stay a month after posting this review I am so pleased. All the love CoHoLo このホステルは本当に1番です。冗談じゃない大好きよ

    This was my first-ever Hostel experience, and I was immediately pleasantly surprised. We were treated like old friends from the second we walked through the door. The location is unbeatable, and the building is clean and inviting. Our room had an outdoor patio perfect for small socially distanced gatherings. We met new friends and shared adventures, with the help of much-needed input from the local hostel staff. Really an amazing experience, and we can't wait to return. You can't go wrong here!

    The staff was awesome and it's a pretty nice place. Impressed that they had a fridge, microwave, kitchen sink and cabinets in each room. It was cleaned everyday as well, which was nice. I do wish they had bigger lockers in the rooms to lock your stuff in but that's not a big deal. The only real down side was that because of Covid they didn't have any excursions going on and the rooftop gathering area was closed off (it's a really cool space up there). Other than that it was great!
