Liked: close to the beach. short walk to most of Waikiki.

Disliked: a bit run down especially the bathroom which was always dirty. It was cleaned every day but this was no more than a wipe over when it needs a good scrub. Waikiki is a very noisy city all night long and it wasn't made better here since we had to sleep with the windows and doors wide open to stay cool. only some staff were helpful the night staff better than day staff.

Liked: Kitchen was very convenient. Beach is right around the corner. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wristband key is an excellent idea.

Disliked: Not really a dislike but, some social events organised by the hostel for guests would be nice like quiz nights or movie nights/ Pizza nights etc.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Over priced compared to other hostels in the same area. No atmosphere at all to meet other guests. Staff were rude and unhelpful especially the guy on reception with dreadlocks. Do yourself a favour and avoid. So many other hostels in the area that are cheaper and better. They may not be on hostelbookers but they are there. I relocated after 2 nights.
