Liked: very close to the beach and other activities, breakfast included (pancakes, tea, coffee), beach gear for rent available, activities offered by the hostel for less (e.g. tours to different beaches of the island)

Disliked: the beds are pretty old but with the beach just a 2 min. walk from the hostel that isn´t really a big point

Liked: Super-close to Waikiki beach, good kitchen, nice tours, sweet staff...

Disliked: Bit quieter than expected. No curtains but nine windows in the dorm?? Combined with quite a few holes in the windows, it's unbelievable to me. Quiet time 10 pm. is nothing to do about, but a bit of a downer.

Liked: All Staff are very friendly, helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed the morning free pancakes. Not only the pancakes the conversation with other guests and staff. It helped guests to know other travelers staying in the hostel. I met nice people coming from all over the world through these conversation.

Disliked: The wifi connection was not very nice... :(

Liked: Good location, near the beach, shops and restaurants and bus route nearby.

Disliked: Dirty, worn out. Not nice at all. Choose this hostel if you're on a tight budget and only want a place to crash for a couple of nights.

Liked: I had some complications with the initial payment of the booking, which became an issue later, but the staff (particularly the manager Shelley) were very helpful and concerned for my satisfaction in resolving the matter. The space was relaxed, but not complacent, and I felt very welcome.

Disliked: On the first night it was cold, and I would have preferred to have a blanket (the linen includes a bottom and a top sheet), but its not a huge deal. The breakfast could have had more variety (pancakes each day), but again it was nice to have something provided.

Liked: Great location and atmosphere. Most of the staff were pretty helpful and were very knowledgeable about where to go and what to eat. We stayed in a private room, which was clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend spending a bit of extra money for the privacy.

Disliked: Our room backed right onto an alleyway so there was a fair bit of noise from garbage trucks.

Liked: I met the nicest people there :) the hostel is 5 mins walk from the beach! The staff is very friendly and will help you book a tour or transport to the airport if you want to! There's a locked room where you can leave your backpack after you've checked out.

Disliked: Warm and noisy at night time but it's really not that bad

Liked: Certain members of staff were particularly helpful. The private room we stayed in was very spacious and had all amenities to be a self contained unit. Great value for money and awesome location just up from the beach. Free use of snorkel gear and body boards etc made our trip extra cool. Thanks.

Disliked: The wifi internet showed as fully connected but wouldn't connect anywhere. My partner got the odd link but very poor and slow loading of pages. A little noisy in room from neighbouring buildings and general public but not an issue, kind of expected in a busy location. The atmosphere seemed a little weird at times but think it was just people who stay there long term lost the will to communicate with new people and looking a little bored/fed up.

Liked: Really great hostel in an amazing location right on Waikiki beach. Had a really lovely twin room. The hostel was clean and tidy, with a well stocked kitchen and hammocks in a communal area. The hostel had beach items to borrow and surfboards to hire. They also ran some great tours and activities round the island which were great value for money. Really good hostel at a great price!

Disliked: Colette left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel is really close to the beach which is great and they have lots of bodyboards beach mats etc you can borrow and surfboards you can rent cheaply. Also the hammocks are really relaxing to lounge in.

Disliked: The internet is rubbish, it crashed repeatedly. There were minimal charging sockets in the rooms, just one by each bunk would have been good but that wasn't the case. It felt like it needed a lot of work done to it to make it more comfortable, quite rough around the edges.

Liked: Reasonably close to the beach.

Disliked: Flithy rooms. No a/c. People in private rooms have to walk through the dorms. Extremely poor wi-fi for those in rooms not near the reception. Loud, hard to sleep at night. Tours were always cancelled due to not enough people. No a/c. Awful "breakfast" (oatmeal packets, water and tea/coffee).

Liked: Location: A 30 second walk from the beach and shops. Very good. Security: Good sized locker provided per bed. Staff: Were friendly but depended on who you got.

Disliked: No curtains in the room - so you wake up at 6am. 1 member of staff didn't know how to check in, so that took a good 20 minutes.

Liked: The location is very good since it is just a minute away from the beach. A lot of shops and bars and restaurants are nearby.

Disliked: The staff the night we arrived was not very friendly nor helpful. However, the staff the next day was verry friendly and helpful. The cleanliness both in the room (we stayed in the private room w/ shared bathroom) and the bathroom was awful. Especially the bathroom looked like it is never being cleaned.
