  • I spend a week at the Hi - Honolulu - Waikiki Hostel and I had a great time. It was my first time staying at a hostel without knowing anyone before I got there and I would definitely do it again. The staff was kind and very helpful, and the guests were friendly and openminded. If I come back to Honolulu at some point I will absolutely stay at this hostel again, and hope that many of the staff members are still there when I come back! Thank you for the great experience! :-)

  • It's a basic hostel on the outside but a family on the inside! The common area is very basic and almost worth not dwelling in. BUT free checkouts of snorkel and boogie board equipment, single bathroom per room (instead of one in hallway for everybody), and walking distance (2.5 blocks) to tourist hot waikiki beach and shops/hotels makes this a location must for the budget traveller! plus the staff is super friendly and accommodating. there's also 2 parking spots for those that did the rental car

  • The staff saved our poor stay at this hostel because we didn't know BEFORE we booked that the kitchen and the livingroom is closed.

  • Awesome hostel, good location and great facilities! Free snorkelling stuff, very helpful staff and right next to the beach. No alcohol unless you're sneaky, wifi works well and felt very secure.

  • Close to the Waikiki beach and shopping malls. They don't have air conditioner but cool enough during the night time.

  • Hostel was in a great location and most of the staff were really lovely (one had a bit of a chip on his shoulder and was a bit rude to anyone male). Room was OK, liked the fact there was a notice board up to notify everyone of free events for the day. However we wouldn't stay there again as it was just too noisy. Not noise from other guests but from the number of trucks that go up and down the road. Every morning we were woken up by trash collection, mostly before 7am!
