Great place in the middle of Waikiki so it is easy to get around and the hostel had a great vibe about it. The staff are great and the place was clean and tidy. They occasionally had a free breakfast or dinner of pasta.

We stayed at the Seaside for 3 nights and we were blown away with the hostel. The 6 person dorm we stayed in was incredibly clean, as was our private bathroom. The free pasta night and waffles were also a bonus! The staff are also really helpful with things to do and where to go. Whilst the wifi is a...

It's a very nice location. The 6 beds dorm was ok. There is only 1 bathroom to share and it's a bit small. There is 1 private room in the dorm so we shared the bathroom with 8 people.My room was upstair and the windows was a bit broken. If you want to sleep early, you might can't do it...

Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff are so lovely, got a tour as soon as I arrived and had the basics of the local stuff straight away. The location is great! Walking distance to the beach, food, shopping and nightlife. Some basic tour info also available at reception. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and...

I love this place ! Can't say enough good about it hands down the best in waikiki . The problem is trip advisor made a mistake and switched my five star review to the bechside hostel which is really a bad place unless you like to party and don't mind being stuck in a random bunk with snoring old men...

The low down: I stayed at this hostel for quite a few days. A great location close to Waikiki Beach and shopping areas. Food options around each corner and the bus system was super easy right outside the doors. When I first arrived I found that the space was not overly clean. The hostel staff wasn't overly friendly or knowledgeable....

This hostel offers the opportunity to stay in Hawaii right on Waikiki beach affordably. The positives: location, cooking facilities, great customer service and secure gate The negatives: could use a bit of investment - painting, tiles and more secure doors/locks, there is no air conditioning. I've stayed in several hostels in the area, and in my opinion, this is the...
