We stayed in a 8 bed dorm room and it was great. We met a lot of fun people on the hostel, it's really close to the beach and shopping. The rooms is very clean and the staff is great! I can definitly recomend it.

We stayed in a semi-private room whilst here. Room was clean. Kitchenette & bathroom shared with 2 others. Always had hot water, which is a must & really friendly staff, who always had a smile on their face. Included breakfast was very basic but there's lots of cafes etc nearby. 1 min walk from Waikiki beach.

My boyfriend and I decided to take an end of summer trip to Honolulu, but we were kinda short on cash. We ended up booking this hostel online after looking at a bunch of reviews on different places. We got a sale, so I think we ended up paying like $120 each for 8 nights. Definitely a steal considering the...

I like this hostel as my last-minute booking was accommodated and I was allowed to check-in earlier than noon by the friendly staff. I stayed at a shared 4-bed female-only room for $35/night and was happy about the free (and strong) WiFi signal in the room. The breakfast that was included reminded me of school recess snacks – jars of...

This hostel is amazing. I loved staying here and can honestly say it is one of the best thigns I have done in my life. The location is amazing, with a bus stop literally around the corner, 5 step away from the world renowned waikiki beach (the nicer..quieter end of it) There's a starbucks, subway, ABC convenience store, Mcdonalds and...

Hostel was ok, what you would expext for the cheapest hostel in town, there was an old guy in my room who was begging for change on the streets, well all hostels get weirdoes from time to time, But the locker situation is nothing short of a cheap shot at making money, Nice lockers, $1 every time you open it,...

Stayed at the Beachside hostel for 4 days at the end of November. This place is in a GREAT location, about 2 mins to Waikiki Beach, bars and shopping. We managed to get a bed for 13$ a night online (they were having a sale, look out for them). Davis usually runs the front desk, very helpful and friendly guy....

“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!”
