We also have a rooftop terrace for sunning yourself, and we hold regular free pizza nights up there. You'll have a free continental breakfast to feast on each morning ahead of one of our free shuttle trips or tours, including to the lush North Shore and historic Pearl Harbour.

Airport drop-off and pick-up is available from $15 per person for a 20-minute journey, or you can ride the bus for about an hour. Take no. 19 or 20 from Daniel K Inouye International and get off in Waikīkī at the corner of Kūhiō and Paoakalani avenues. Turn towards the beach, walk two blocks to Cartwright Road and you'll see us.

Best I’ve ever stayed in, even when we had issues with one of our roommates (not the hostels fault,) the ladies at the front desks (I’m awful with names!) both helped us out and gave us great options, awesome location, breakfast was super yummy & tours they offer are great too! Thank you for a fab stay!

    It has a rooftop patio that you hang out on, and then make friends. Also doesn't hurt that each room has A/C so you're cool when you need to be.

    This was one of the best hostel experiences I’ve had! The staff was awesome, fun, and very nice, all while being very professional. The rooms were great, very clean and comfortable. The vibe was probably the best part. If you want to go to hostel and meet great people and explore, this is it. I tried the nearby hostels and this was by far the best one! Also, you get a discount on scooters from across the street if you stay here. Other hostels don’t offer that.

    This was one of my best stay in an hostel so far. The guest and the staff are like a second family and the tours they offer are great values. Couple minutes from the beach and all the attraction in Waikiki, you can rent snorkeling gear and scooters just next door to make your stay even better.

    I am a 54 year old, so do read this with that in mind ;) I booked a single room shared bathroom, got a room with a bunkbed and a secure locker where I could touch the walls, so no space and an airco that made lots and lots of noise with little cooling, but no possibility to either turn it off and open window the airco was the window. bathroom was very narrow too and both toilet and bathroom left lots to be desired in cleanliness.... that things are old...they can be clean. staff was lovely

    Personal ist unprofessionell,bei meinem Empfang lag ein bekiffter Mitarbeiter schlafend auf der Bank und hat mich mit Müh und Not einchecken können.Info‘s zwecks Aufenthalt gab es keine.Aber auch alle anderen wie z.B.das asiatische Mädchen sowie die Blonde am Empfang könnten wirklich freundlicher sein. Dachte wir befinden uns in einem Hostel und nicht in einer Bar.Jeff,der Hotel-Entertainer und persönlich ernannter Bachelor,benötigt wohl bald einen Entzug.PS:Klima-Anlage ist fast überall defekt!
