Hokondo Waikiki Beachside Hostel is a cool mix of hostel and hotel. Think balconies in every room and memory foam mattresses, but with a clubhouse vibe. Our friendly staff are around 24 hours a day – ask them anything! Start by checking who we've got lined up to perform at our next live music event on the outdoor terrace. If you've splashed out on private surf lessons, get back on budget by cooking cheap eats in the hostel kitchen. We'll help you out with free breakfast. You're also welcome to join our weekly meditation sessions in the common room.


From the airport, catch the 19 or 20 bus direct to the centre of Waikiki in an hour and a half. Get off at the Waikiki Beach Marriott and walk toward the beach, and we're on the second road on the left. The hostel's just a 5-minute walk from Waikiki Beach, where you can watch the pro surfers from a lively beach bar. Just a few steps from our front door, you'll find the shops and restaurants of bustling Kalakaua Avenue. After a day on the beach, we like to come here for retail therapy and a few beers!

Rooms and Dorms

Book a mixed or female-only dorm, or a private room with kitchen facilities – all rooms have an en-suite. If you're looking for privacy but still want the hostel atmosphere, choose one of our smaller, semi-private dorms. Either way, all options come with free bed linen and access to a storage locker.

Extras and activities

Grab a snack from the café and catch up with your social media on the free Wi-Fi. Don't worry if you haven't got cash, there's an onsite ATM; perfect if you're craving a sugar fix from the vending machine on the patio. There's also a mini-supermarket for snacks. Surfing not your thing? Rent one of our bikes for a casual ride through town or borrow one of our board games.

    Location is great, just a block or two from the beach. Staff was very friendly. Great price for Waikiki. Only complaint was that my bunk bed was very wobbly.

    Very Good

    The location is incredible, and the other hostel guests were fantastic. I felt I was surrounded by great people. However, the staff were pretty unengaging and seemed uninterested in any interactions with the guests. The beds are very wobbly and loud, I was concerned I would break it by climbing up top. The room I was in had no air conditioning, and only 1 fan (for all 8 people). I was also disappointed that there were only 6 lockers, even though there were 8 people, and they are coin-operated..

    After staying at another hostel, I needed a place to crash for one more night, and this was the only one available. It had the basics, WiFi, clean linens, bathroom in the room (though it was a bit dirty), even laundry and a kitchen. The bed was uncomfortable and had a very cheap pillow, but I slept decently. Overall it was fine, basic. I look for personality in hostels, and this one had none. I’d stay again if I had to but not otherwise. There are better hostels literally around the corner.

    Lockers were broken nothing felt safe or secure. Quiet time & rules stated not enforced. Fine place if you are okay with yelling all night and the smell of weed everywhere. Would not recommend to anyone trying to sleep. Plenty of better hostels nearby.

    The air conditioning simply doesn't work. The rooms are a mess. The location is great though. Would not recommend, spend a few more $ and go to the boutique hostel

    This was the worst hostel I have ever been in. And I have stayed at hostels all over the world. The location is great, but other than that the place was dirty and staff was rude. They charge for towels, lockers, and baggage storage. If you can stay at Seaside Hawaiian or Polynesian beach club.

    Hostel is in a great location but the staff seemed incredibly disinterested in anything. We were in a group of 5, two of the beds hadn't been stripped from previous guests, both bins in the room were overflowing, kitchen was filthy, dirty towels on floor in the bathroom. This is probably the worst and dirty hostels I've ever stayed in. i would not recommend anyone stay here.
