Basically it's a good hostel which offers all facilities you need. The hostel is located very close to the beach. It's like a three minutes walk from there. The rooms are pretty clean because the friendly staff takes care about them every day. Unfortunately there are still cockroaches running through the room. Two things really annoyed me: The wifi and...

This place is perfect for young people who cannot spent too much money, is very close to the beach and not exspensive. The room are not too big but you need just to sleep and take shower so is not a big deal, the problem it was the breakfast was not satisfied, just bread and peanuts butter nothing else.

My friend and I had booked a semi-private room at this hostel. Our room was the back room with an own balcony and you could lock the door so that the inhabitants of the front room couldn't access your room. Private locker for your valuable is available for each person individually next to the bathroom. The kitchen is in the...

Room was unexpectedly large, clean and quiet. Service at check-in was so casual and warm, all staff looked happy to be there, happy to be on that island, happy to help. I got a tour and told about all the amenities by front desk staff. The lounge had a chatty,outgoing, "we're going to be friends," vibe and the Aloha spirit...

First; I've never used a Hostel before. That being said, I wasn't too sure on what to expect during my 8 night stay. For me, check-in was quick and I was given a couple sheets and instructed to find a bed in my room and place my confirmation sheet on the clipboard at the end of the bed. So I...

Pros: Great location in Waikiki beach Cheaper than a hotel Cons: Everything else This is a genuine budget backpackers hostel. If all you're looking for is a cheaper hostel in good location, where you can put your bags and sleep at night, then go for it. But don't expect much here and you won't be disappointed. Rooms are somewhat clean,...

For the money, this is great value with a killer location. Sure the rooms are very basic but good enough for the adventurous who just need a clean room with good staff close by. The manager is a great guy who takes his job seriously and does it well. Very nice front desk staff. I have been hear twice now...

“Top floor is furthest from the ground noise - trade off is you're also furthest from the WiFi and have to walk up stairs to your room!”
