We've been to many hostals before but this was the worst by far. We had booked for 10 days, after 2 we checked out. We had booked a double room, so no dorms for us, otherwise it would had been even worse. The room was far too warm given that it had no big windows, only some openings on the...

My boyfriend and I stayed in two different rooms on separate occasions, both times we got a private room. The first room we had was nice, it was clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. We checked out and went to the north shore for a night, we came back and stayed in another...

I only stayed here one night thank goodness. I just wanted a nice shower and a good night's sleep since I had my flight the next day. It was a 4 bedroom suite with bathroom inside and it was super gross. The tub and bathroom walls are really grimy and there's a questionable hole on the ceiling which was concerning....

So I booked a last minute trip to Hawai'i for the week I had off before I had to come back to Los Angeles and I stayed here at PHBC. Great booking on my part and if you book here, it will be on yours as well. It is literally two blocks from the beach. They let you borrow beach...

The location of the hostel is unbeatable. It's five minutes walk to Waikiki beach. I slept in a semi private double room which was off a four bed dorm room and shared a bathroom with them. It was spacious and has everything I needed including a extra fan and in room fan. No air-conditioning but fan worked fine. The hostel...

A very pleasant hostel to stay on a budget The rooms are clean, travelling with my wife, we got a semi private room and the staff was helpful to provide indications for hikes, gear rentals etc.. Hawaii s pretty expensive, so it s a good compromise for affordable vacations Only a block away from a nice beach in front of...

We stayed in a 'private' double room... by private, they mean a room at the back of a dorm that you have to walk through to get to your room. Which means you share the bathroom with the dorm, so its not really private at all. The rooms were clean, very basic, old furniture, old mattress etc. Rooms are all...

Honestly, I've stayed in dozens of hostels in my life.....this place kinda sucks. Rooms are hot....one fan, bathrooms are actually really good....vibes were average really good location though. We had to sleep with the door open because the room was so hot, I normally don't care but there were random people in our room and bathroom I had to approach...

We had a wonderful time at this hostel, Stayed there for 8 nights on total and never had any problems. It was clean, beds are comfortable enough and the staff is absolutely amazing, we were pretty late for our plane and the nice lady at the reception organised a shuttle to the airport which picked up us just 10 minutes...
