+ DO YOU HAVE FREE BREAKFAST?

In Hawaii, when you see "free" breakfast, it means that the price is included in what you pay. We prefer to keep our prices low, so we do not offer free breakfast. We provide a self-service kitchen so that guests can cook their own meals. There are also several nearby restaurants that offer continental breakfast ranging from $3-$8.

+ CAN I DRINK ALCOHOL AT THE HOSTEL?

We do not allow possession or consumption of alcohol at the hostel. Hawaii has a variety of things to offer in the form of activities during the morning, afternoon and night. Our mission is to provide you with a "home-base" to return to after exploring the island. Feel free to cook yourself a meal and mingle with other backpackers or use our free Wi-Fi to catch up with friends. If you prefer hostels that focus on drinking and partying, please consider other hostels in Waikiki.
