Great staff- always friendly and willing to help. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Kitchen and bathrooms are quite nice too. And awesome location! 2 min walk to the beach and shops
It is quite noisy at night with people talking, general noises and it sounds like some big fans or air conditioning units going all night that are really loud - the noise seems to carry up to the rooms. The window shutters don't seem block out the noise too well. Also we stayed in 2 different rooms and both had very leaky shower taps.
The Staff was probably the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever had! And the location is to die for! 1 and a half blocks from the ocean in Waikiki! Wow!
You get what you pay for! Scary looking bathroom and loud location!
Location is Great. Stuff is nice. Easy For backpacker traveler or low budget stay at Hawaii.
The staff are so helpful and friendly, and meeting so many people in the common area due to the massive amount of rooms available. Self contained rooms with kitchens is helpful in saving money by cooking. The artwork on the buildings adds a good vibe to the hostel as well as the reading area.
Some beds weren't as stable as others. Which made lots of noise. The breakfast is simple. Although having a food in the wall shop next door made great options.
cheap very close to the beach and bus stops diamond head walkable
a bit noisy at night (but might be good for young travelers)
The staff were very kind giving directions when I wanted to eat Hawaiian food and they even took my suitcase while I was waiting for my shuttle with no extra fee
I don't like the fact that I had to pay for keeping my suitcase in the hotel. But I guess it's a secure service so it's worth it. Also the staff in the night shift when I arrived wasn't the kindest staff I've met. Should work a little bit on client treating maybe
Room size was good with a kitchen, shower and balcony for 8. Block from The beach. The room key is a water proof bracelet. Great for so many reasons.
Common area isn't the nicest.
Location was great, staff are friendly and very helpful, WiFi works everywhere.
Cloes to beach
rooms are little unclean, can be noisy at nights.
Great way to meet new people! Excellent location, near centre and beach. Nice staff.
Wifi is not very good. It would be a nice addition if they would organize activities.
I can made friends. And staff was awesome
Staff are excellent, helpful and friendly; rooms are clean though well worn; not as noisy as you would expect at a hostel
the breakfast doesn't start till 9AM and its really only toast and coffee ... its not a complaint but luckily they have kitchens in the room!
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.
