    Check in was simple and the rooms were clean as well as the bathroom. Everyone I met was friendly and the bedrooms had small lamps for each bed as well as a small shelf which was actually really handy and you don’t find very often. I would recommend this place. I had to leave before breakfast and the staff actually gave me some of the free breakfast food the night before because of my early departure.

    Great location, friendly and helpful staff. My only issue was that there's only one bathroom per room and nothing in the communal areas. and there's quite a few people in a room.

    A perfectly nice hostel! Gets the job done for sure. Not much of a social atmosphere the night I stayed. Was expensive for a hostel but you’re paying for the location. Safe and clean and felt very secure. The staff were kind.

    I stayed in the 4 per female room and it was okay. Single beds (no bunks), but the room was very basic, unrenovated, and a bit dirty. On the upside, security was good with secure access to buildings and rooms, and the location is literally one block to the beach — can’t be beat! Scooter rentals downstairs. I didn’t see much for social atmosphere but maybe it was the wrong season.

    Only couple blocks from Waikiki Beach and shops. Staff were friendly. Renovated 2 bed studio. CON: Mattress & pillow wafer thin, unable to get extra pillow. Staff control air-conditioning so had to call them to get any changes. The window was stuck open so I got mosquito bites all night. PRICE GOUGING! $4 Towels, 25c every time you open the locker. I haven’t seen pricing like this in other hostels. Good for a cheap overnight stay. Any longer go elsewhere.

    Female 4bed - Cleaning was quite bad. Blocked shower that kept overflowing and the cleaners didn’t even clean the sand out of the shower. Broken window fixed with a board. Missing blinds and lots of light. One very old saucepan that the bottom was falling off. Only aircon in one of the rooms. Great location however the hostel doesn’t have much of a friendly community vibe with limited activities available.

    The worst hostel I have ever stayed at! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!! They allow drunk homeless people to stay here and pee on the floor and do nothing about it. Lockers are coin operated and most are broken so absolutely no security. Bathrooms are disgusting and don’t even have soap. Absolutely no atmosphere. And more expensive than other hostels in Waikiki! It’s also “no smoking” yet the staff know guests smoke on balconies and don’t care. Stay somewhere else.
