    great hostel in a great spot in Waikiki! Super friendly staff, tons of things you can rent/ borrow for free and comfy beds! Would definitely stay here again! The rooms do get a bit hot and the lockers aren’t big enough to fit a full bag but otherwise loved it!

    Hostel is in a great spot close to the action and other hostels in waikiki. The room was large with plenty of space (2 separated rooms with 2 beds in each). Rooms and facilities could do with a touch up. 24hour front desk is great. Mahalo for your hospitality

    Dirty bathrooms, only some rooms have a (barely equipped) kitchen and some don‘t. The breakfast is a nice plus (toast, jam, peanut butter, coffee and tea). Close to the beach but not the best area

    One of the worst hostels I have been so far. Some of the staff is rude and most of them don't care or don't want to help you. Rooms are nice and big though.. Also quite clean, but the general atmosphere created by staff etc is pretty bad. Didn't like it won't recommend it and will probably never return to it

    Rooms are only set out, one side of the room had 2 air conditioners but the side I was on didn’t have any air conditioner and the fan was broke so I was boiling hot. Street noise is very loud, I got woken up many times from people yelling in the street outside. I had a dislocated shoulder so was in a sling when I arrived and the staff member didn’t even offer to help me up the stairs so had to struggle to lift my bag with one arm.

    The bathroom was unsanitary. The shower recess was covered in mould and the ceiling was falling in.

    Would never stay there again. The building is next to a halfway house. A girl that roomed with me was followed around by a guy from the neighbouring building for 6 hours. Security is non-existent. They give you a key bracelet for your door but otherwise anyone can just come into the compound. It was cleanish, but the sheets smelled like someone died in them and the room hasn't had a deep clean in a very, very long time. Bring kitchen supplies if you plan on cooking.
