Great location and friendly and helpful staff.
Location The semi private rooms are really nice
You need to pay each time 0,25 USD when you are opening/closing your locker in the room! They store your luggage after checkout only if you pay an other 5 USD! Thats completely stupid and impertinent.
Room was very dark and had unusual smell ...almost a Damp smell
Perfect location for shopping what we didn't realise was how good the beach was if we went in opposite direction Large units
One block away from the beach, swimming with the turtles almost every day.
the location is very close to the Waikiki beach. The staff is helpful and very friendly. The room is clean
No cooking facilities in the room, no Air conditioning. Squeeky bunk beds wake you when someone gets into bed.
Closeness to the beach
Sheets are stained with blood.
Low-cost and friendly staff.
I found sometimes that the wifi was hit and miss in my room (located on the top floor) but was perfect in the lounge area and surrounding area.
This place is ideal for staying in Waikiki. A 2 minute stroll to the beach, zoo and shops. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I had arrived late in the night after 17 hours of travel and was greeted with a cold tasty beer( just what you need). It had a great atmosphere and had everything I needed.
The management could do much more with very simple moves. Check the room before you accept it: some of them are very VERY poor compared to others for the same price!!!
Position and nice people at reception.
The hostile next door was a little loud one night.
The people. Loved meeting everyone. Excellent opportunity to meet people all over the world.
Very clean Friendly staff Good bed
Breakfast served late.
Wifi, good location, helpfully staff, room key bracelet.
Breakfast only served 9-10am Wifi was baaaad, didn't work at all at night
Good location, kitchen in rooms, cheap
the hostel is way too big so it can be a bit impersonal.
location, good internet connection, easy check in.,
I loved this place so much, i was in an 8 bed dorm and everyone got on so well/I made friends pretty much instantly! The whole place mingled well too due to the social area below. I felt like part of a family! The staff were wonderful and had all the time in the world for any questions i had. I wish all hostels were this good!
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.
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
You get what you pay for! Scary looking bathroom and loud location!
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!
Location is Great. Stuff is nice. Easy For backpacker traveler or low budget stay at Hawaii.
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.
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.
a bit noisy at night (but might be good for young travelers)
cheap very close to the beach and bus stops diamond head walkable
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
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
