What Our Guests Are Saying

"Clean, relatively quiet, close to beach, safe and secure. Great place to meet people from all over the world. Lots of people traveling on their own (like me). Met some awesome people."

"I loved my time at this youth hostel. Very friendly and helpful stuff with a good knowledge of the area!"

"The staff were very friendly and I enjoyed my stay. It was pretty clean for a hostel. The area and building felt safe which is always important when you are traveling alone. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others."

"When I travel I like to know how the local folk live. Here at this hostel, in the middle of Honolulu, near a university yet in Manoa valley... you get a sense of the modern world that is put on."
