It is too noisy and they should have more lockers in the rooms! and without paying! the room for 8 persons have beds in the entrance next to the kitchen and is not comfortable if somebody wants to have breakfast early or eat late.
I stayed at Waikiki Beachside Hostel three times: in 2010, 2013 and the last time in Oct-Nov 2014. Location is good. Reasonable fares.
After returning home I wrote a letter to Waikiki Beachside Hostel asking to find and keep my shoes I left in my room A303. My Honolulu friend can take the shoes from reception. I received only such reply: "Thank you for contacting the Waikiki Beachside Hostel! Your message is important to us. We will respond within 24 to 48 hours." But actually they have never responded.
The fact that we didn't get a fridge in the room. We didn't get a locker. We didn't get a kitchen. All the other rooms seemed to have these but not ours.
Close proximity to beach, main strip and nightlife. Value for money Free dinner on Halloween night
No proper air conditioning,affecting quality of sleep. Rooms need renovation
The location is really good and the staff is super friendly! also the laundry facilities are good price and convenient!
It is really noise!!! and the room doesn't have air conditioning so you should let the window open
Location; staff is very friendly and helpful; toast, coffee and tee for breakfast included
For luggage deposit on the day of departure you have to pay usd 5. a/c only available in semi-private rooms
The hostel is located just off the Queens beach which is amazingly good for snorkeling with its underwater caves, fishes, sometimes turtles and sharks, on the right side of the beach is good for surfing. About the hostel the most important plus was the staff, they are amazingly friendly and supportive. Just come to waikiki without any plan (like me) they will help you out with the best recommendations in the island. Rooms are big and clean, needless to say comfortable to sleep.
Wifi isn't great in the room but it has good connection in the public area where i could meet people across the world and it is great.
wonderful and helpful staff, good location and great layout for small mixed dorm
the room was a bit hot. Somehow it isn't well ventilated for a hot place, the fans don't really do much! New fans might help. The paint on the bathroom doors needed a paint job. Made the room look tired.
The common space to hang out
Breakfast starts late.
the friendliness of the staff, the location and the cost was excellent, met people from all over the world, the bus was so easy , the food was great, in the center of everything
didn't have more time
Convenience to the beach was excellent. Staff was very professional.
Bathroom was not very clean and floors in bedroom was dirty.
It is so conveniently located. Central to many shops, the beach. The staff is the best. Informative, helpful always cheerful. Just great staff.
Definitely not cleaned often enough. Limited parking, if you need it, be prepared to park on the street. No air conditioner. I missed that some how.
This place was absolutely disgusting. There was no respect for the reservations we actually booked and it was full of loud, abnoxious, folks. I have stayed at hostels all over the world and love the experience and the party atmosphere but we could not get past the filth of our rooms to enjoy a single thing about it. It is more an old motel converted into a so-called hostel. Not at all welcoming and for groups of two or more, you are going to pay as much or more than a hotel. Was super excited to stay here and ended up EXTREMELY disappointed.
Social area great for meeting other people, location, friendly staff, breakfast, cheap surfboard rentals
Old and noisy air conditioning running all night long
Location. I was in 4 bed mixed dorm which was really a self contained apartment with an air conditioned bedroom and 2 further beds in the kitchen area (not air conditioned). All were single beds. Liked the fact that each apartment had its own key band which you wore as a bracelet. Breakfast provided 9 to 10 a.m consisted of toast, butter, jam and peanut butter, tea coffee and water. No milk provided for tea/coffee only creamer. ABC store located around the corner. McDonalds and Burger King nearby. Safe sandy beach less than 5 mins walk. Good wifi in my room 303A
Lack of air conditioning in my room, didn't feel clean, only coin operated lockers available. A little noisy at night.
spotty wifi and open air common area.
If you are looking for a cheap, comfortable and friendly Hostel you should take this one. Its 2 minutes from the beach and the snurcel stuff is for free. The ABC store and a bike and mopet rent station ist 1 minute away. The bus station 3 minutes The staff is really friendly and they help you with all.
The breakfast is only toast with yam and peanutbutter. But you can buy fruits on the farmers market or in the ABC store
Very close to the beach Close to bus from Airport and shopping malls Air con in my room as well as kitchen
Some of the staff were not friendly. Luckily others were
its sooooooooo convenient to a lot of places and the price is really nice
just love it
There were no kitchen facilities in the room.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I felt safe leaving my bags in the room. Located a block from the beach. Comfortable beds for a hostel. Nice kitchen area and bathroom.
A bit of street noise, but you get used to it.
Staff are amazing. Really good place to meet other travellers.
Rooms are really hot and crowded.
- Good breakfast - handy laundry system - close to the beach - central location - WIFI though all hostel
- hygiene of the rooms could be better - no AC - reception forgot to give me my blanket and covers, car badge
