the people who were travelling there, the wifi, the location, the value all in all had an amazing time there.
some of the staff are cranky, some were awesome and helpful. beds were not that comfy. ran out of towels....
-The hostel is located in a very strategic position, served of all type of transport and close to the best waikiki beaches.
-The hostel is quite old. Need to renew. -The smell from the trash about the hotel in front of the hostel is disgusting.
Great staff! Great position! Great people, I definitely recommend this place!
Great location! Friendly staff Good price Great for single travelers/easy to meet people.
Equipment room/kitchen/bathroom but not so important, in Hawaii we don't spend so much time in the room. Very simple breakfast. Peanut butter, bread and coffee that's it.
Room size Bathroom in 4 bed unit Beds nicely spaced- 4 beds in two rooms
Many hostels rent towels and this one did not; however they sold me a towel for a modest price.
Location and the service
No window sheet
Location just off the beach
Fan was filthy and air conditioner was in poor condition. Kitchen was lacking supplies. The bathroom was in disrepair.
Staff and location were good.
It's nothing like the picture shows, NO kitchen facilities in rooms, first two beds were stained with urine & blood. The only casual seating & Wifi is in open garage. Broken patio door in bedroom so not secure, police were taking statements from staff when I arrived. Breakfast is just peanut butter & jam toast.
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
