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.

    Aside from the annoying roommates I had for the nite, my stay there was great and convenient last minute. Customer service was awesome they allowed me to check the rooms before settling in. Wendy and the other workers were awesome and they deserve 5 Stars for quality service. I would suggest giving them a raise. I love the location of this hostel and how close it is to the beach. Breakfast in the morning was quick and on the go. My stay there was nice and an easy process booking.

    I had a great stay here. It was affordable, clean, had a good common area & a great staff (helpful & friendly) & location just a few minutes walk to the beach. i'd have preferred to have at least one fitted sheet for the bed. Bring shower shoes, as you should all hostels. Not sure who was supplying the bathroom soap, i suspect one of the hostel mates. great perk of having a full fridge & half kitchen. Stove wasn't in use in my room, but would have been a nice perk. Ultimately, I'd stay again.

    Best Value, Amenities and Location for Price. Need bigger lockers in rooms and complete blinds/drapes to block out light at night.

    No wifi service in our rooms. Just lobby. I wish the breakfast was earlier for an option, like at 7:45am would be idea.

    This was my second time staying at this hostel, and I was disappointed. It took us about an hour of waiting just to check in, after we were told to wait in the lobby and they would “call us” when it was our turn—without taking down names for a waitlist or anything. We went up to our 4-bed female dorm in the C block. It was so dingy compared to my previous room in an A block dorm. It’s stale, all painted one color and no kitchen sink or curtains??

    I was extremely disappointed with my stay and after one night quickly moved on to other accomodation and asked for a refund. The rooms were not remotely as advertised in the photos - dirty rooms and bathrooms, no airconditioning, no power outlets. My sheets were also dirty. For a hostel it was bad, but particularly given the price. I will say that the staff were always welcoming and handled my complaints well. Skip this one!
