    Good location - nice common area with quiet hours after 10pm. Go on the free tour provided at the hostel - they take you around in a van and you go to different beaches etc.

    Great Honolulu deal! And closer to Diamond Head than the many expensive upscale hotels around.

    My friend and I had no other option but to stay here as a last resort as everywhere else was fully booked. We were both extremely reluctant after reading so many terrible reviews regarding cleanliness. However, we were provided with clean bedding on arrival and our dorms were cleaned daily. The building was more secure than other hostels in the area. This is a cheaper hostel but feel is much better value for money. Negatives: no working lockers & poor breakfast selection available only 9-10am.

    The 8-person room with only 1 bathroom was a nightmare, esp since there were no other bathrooms available at the hostel.

    This is my honest feedback The bathroom is the so FILTHY Dirty and Disgusting... It looks like it has not been cleaned for years. Dirty white towels are still hanging there from years ago. Nobody came to clean during my 3 nights stay there. The room is very HOT in the summer like hot that you can’t fall asleep! The upper bed doesn’t have a security barrier you could fall off from the bunk bed! Don’t book this one. I booked it and regretted it! Pay 20 bucks more for another nicer place.

    This hostel is not that bad but I wouldn't recommend it. The bathroom was discussing, I dont think anyone cleans there! The security is TERRIBLE, my room had 8 girls and just 2 lockers and you need to pay 25 cents everytime you open the locker, that's ridiculous. I saw a guy complaining in the front desk about his bag that was missing, so you can notice that they dont provide lockers free enough and bad things happens! Breakfast is a joke, just coffe, toast and butter. Locations is a good point

    The location is good and staff are friendly enough. This place didn’t feel very safe due to some questionable characters and strange people staying at the hostel. The room I was placed in was very dirty with food crumbs on the floor and on my bed. I was very disappointed as it was not the cheapest place to stay.

    No working lockers in my room, had a bag with a passport in taken from the common room, after searching all evening and morning with no luck, it magically appeared in the baggage room, seems either someone staying or working there took it and put it back when they realised there was nothing of value inside. Top bunk was squeaky as hell and didn’t seem very safe, no air con or fans in the room, barely had a decent nights sleep during my stay. Avoid this place.
