The roosters making so much noise so early in the morning.
The position was excellent. Easy walking to Foodland for supplies. The bus was easy to use but get a schedule as they only pass every 50 minutes. Internet available.

Room was much smaller than it appeared in the web pictures. Very close quartets for two people
Location to the beach.

Didn't have the classic hostel feel that makes staying at a hostel the experience it should be
Close to beaches, supermarket, and bus stops

The room got a bit hot during the day time but that's a pretty minor quibble when you're out snorkelling or seeing sea turtles anyway
It's within walking distance of several of the best beaches on the island and there are lots of other great things a short drive away too. There's a supermarket 5 minutes walk away and there's a comfortable kitchen/lounge/balcony area too. For Hawaii on a budget I don't think you can beat this place. One of the best hostels I've stayed at!

first room we got was in very bad shape. hot water tap fell off flooding the room with boiling hot water. on top of that we actually booked a studio but got that room. very disappointing. After intervention we got a bungalow and later moved in the studio which both were in ok shape.
After my intervention we finally got the facility we booked. Overall helpful and friendly staff.

Staff smoking cigarettes in your face while you are checking in. Rooms smell of mildew and musk. Staff seem to be very lazy unmotivated people. Very dirty rooms and bathrooms and showers. Scared to sleep on the bedding.
The location is awesome

The accomodation looks old and is pricy for what you get, there were bugs walking around, wifi only in the main building
Great location, free parking

Everything else. I don't even know where to start..when I read the reviews warning us about not staying there I ignored them because I'm from Hawaii and thought a little dirty is normal for an older place on the North Shore. So I booked 3 nights and was so excited about the deal and location. When I got there I ended up changing it to two nights because the room was horrible. I wanted to cancel all together but they don't give refunds. So the room is very dirty and old, the mattress 's are old and very uncomfortable and have bed bugs. The guys in the room next to us slept in their car at night, that's how bad it was. There is no ac only a table fan so it's very very hot. We didn't have a screen on our sliding door so the guys next door took one off the other rooms and gave it to us. How ghetto. With out it all the bugs would come in your room and at night ( huge flying roaches and spiders). The faucet is broken and I never walked around without my shoes. It was the most uncomfortable two nights of my life and a waste of 300$. My advise to you is if you're not going to listen to this and other reviews like me just book one night cause if you like it (which you wont ) you can always pay for extra days but you can't get your money back once you pay for several days. Good luck!!!
It's right on the beach.

Safety is an issue. The response when I injured myself could have been a lot better.
Other visitors we met were lovely. There was masses of space for all of us. The kitchen was sizable and well stocked. Great supermarket located on the doorstep.

Just don't do it... foam as a mattress, cockroaches and spiders hiding everywhere, dirty bathrooms, no security, bunk beds with no ladders that sway with every movement... worst experience on our trip thus far.

The cockroaches... but they leave the dorm when you switch off the light.
Definitively a nice place to stay for backpackers. The staff is really friendly. It is also the only affordable place in the north shore.

Being away from all the 'tourists' of Waikiki. 50m from the beach Great public transport

Run down, stair ligths not working, no power outlet in room, curtains (drapes) don't block out the ligth - some are see through and this affects privacy generally needs some TLC and some basic maintenance.
Very relaxing, close to beach, close to supermarket, good WIFI. Even thought the location is a least an hour drive from downtown Honolulu it was not a problem.

The items in the room were not in the best condition. I understand that this was not set in uptown place, but if there is something broke replace it, don't leave and risk injury.
The day I signed my agreement the lady I spoke to was welcoming and sweet. We enjoyed the natural fit that this place had.

We slept in our car our first night- booked 3 nights- with luggage in trunk and left the next morning. Gave key back to nice guy at office and asked for but denied any refunds for next 2 nights - we left and had to eat the other 2 nights money wise - spent 450 for the 3 nights and slept in car 1st night eat other 2 nights- could not stay there otherwise you could take home 10,000 dollar problem- ya ? We booked a one room suite with bathroom and we were solo occupants so we can't comment about the remainder of the property - our room was infested with bed bugs eggs and the dreaded CR word - we actually saw other people around the property with massive bites on their legs - No offense to the - could be - beautiful place - just being honest - Also we not professional bug experts but google images - ya ?
Location of our one room suite was right on three tables beach - Fabo !!!
