  • I had a blast. My trip was from Dec 6 to Dec 13, 2014. The room was clean. The other guests were considerate. Even with 6 people total at times (4-person room, 2-person private room) there were no issues with the bathroom or getting around the room itself. The lockers were fine for storing personal belongings. The hot water was actually hot instead of just warm which was a nice feature. The food nights were a great value and a chance to relax with the other guests. I would stay again.

  • Nice and friendly hostel. Big rooms, best shower I ever had in a hostel. BUT, I didn't like that our room didn't have glaswindows cuz it was impossible to sleep in the mornings. No internet in the room and it was turned off at night til 8 in the morning(?) breakfast pretty boring. Okey hostel but I've been to better.

  • The staff is very nice and the location couldn't be more perfect: right next to the bars and busses, and only a 5 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. The only thing is that the beds/pillows are not too comfortable and I felt like the lockers were in each room were also not the best ones (could easily break them open I think).

  • Overall for the size of the hostel it is number one. No packed to gills rooms or hidden charges. A genuine relaxing atmosphere where it is a true pleasure to sit back and just listen to the happy buzz of people enjoying themselves. More amenities than most hotels. Majority of the staff are super friendly and welcoming.

  • We had a fun time at the Seaside hostel, the outside area is very nice with hammocks and sitting area. The breakfast was very average. The dorm we stayed in was ok, the beds were not too comfy.

  • I stayed here for the better part of 2 1/2 weeks and it kinda started to feel like home. The environment is super friendly and social, and the layout of the property really encourages people to socialize. The staff was awesome! Especially Priska, who I considered a good friend by the end of my stay. She cooked me food, paid my cover charge at a club when I had no cash in my pocket, and really just made all the guests feel welcome. If you're gonna be in Waikiki, this is the place to stay.

  • The hostel is well located, the staff cleans regularly, we had excellent lockers in our room, and there were also nice common areas to meet other travelers. Their rules make sense and the staff are great. Priska is particularly exceptional - she's great at her job, excellent company, and everyone loved her!

  • two woman room @ $ 33 per night had no air conditioning or anything else to really justify the cost. Same bed, shared bathroom, the dorm at least had a locker per bed. The quiet hours are very helpful. The outside noise cannot be controlled. Room had ceiling fan. Could use a floor fan like the one in the dorm to keep the hot air circulating. When I tried the free bf, they were out of peanut butter.

  • A bit far from beach, but not too far. You can rent all kinds of sport equipments free of charge (e.g. snorkelling stuff, boogie board) or way cheaper than on beach (surfboard). There is a computer you can use for internet surfing too. And indeed wi-fi.
