  • Hostel is in a great location in Waikiki. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. A few small things could be done better - only 4 lockers in room with 6 beds, no luggage storage room (luggage just kept next to reception desk). Rooms a bit small with 6 beds - 4 beds would be a better size. But this is Waikiki, so hostel stacks up well against competition.

  • Free beer or pizza nights on rooftop terrace surely help to find new friends. Good location, reasonable price but pretty small rooms. No idea why the bus directions says go to Lemon Rd when the hostel is just one block from Kuhio Ave on Cartwright Rd (i.e. first left).

  • Excellent accomodation in good location. Would stay here again! Unfortunately not flexible with check-out time, but provides luggage storage and shower also after check-out.

  • Excellent hostel. It's a shame more people don't use the common area. It would help if it was open 24 hours.

  • There were quite a few appliances which is nice if people stay more than a couple nights and are cooking their own food etc. The rooms were too hot too sleep. The shower was a cesspool in room 11. Bunk beds although a space saver are a terrible option, however, if done right they can succeed.

  • Waikiki Backpackers Hostel is a lot better than most of the reviews I read before staying there. It seems a little old and dingy but that's just because it is an old building. The pub crawl is fun as are the free beer night, and free pizza night but they are the only activities they do. It is literally right across the road from the Zoo and the beach and walking distance to Diamond Head. The location is the very best thing about this hostel. And there were absolutely no bed bugs whatsoever.
