Hostelling International Waikiki Honolulu Reviews

Great location, comfy rooms, and all for less than 30 bucks Apr 19, 2013
The hostels run by Hosteling International have always lived up to my standards. Not only are they professionally run, they also attract a very global crowd.

The hostel is Waikiki was no exception. Clean, orderly rooms, a pleasant common room and kitchen, friendly staff. And of course, a location to kill for. Two blocks from the center of Waikiki Beach, this hostel was right amidst names like Hilton and Hyatt. And all for $25 a bed!

The dorm rooms had lockers for personal use. Restrooms were common per 6 bed dorm, so you didn't have to share it with the entire hostel.

It was more like sharing a house with 5 other people.

The only tiny negative point was that they had terrible wifi connectivity. Wifi was only available in the common room, and wasn't too great there either.

The hostel offers a suite of activities at discounted prices. Snorkel and beach equipment are freely available to all that would like to borrow them.

If you're in Honolulu on a budget, there's no beating this place.

Plus if you live in the US and have a smartphone, then the internet is not an issue. I was just being whiny :D

Sounds really nice.... Wifi is important but you could replace that time with snorkeling....

Totally agree. I should get the list of the "odd bad experience" from you though, so that my experience with them remains untarnished!

Great Affordable Hostel for Expensive Hawaii May 25, 2011
Loved Hawaii and loved staying at Hostelling International Waikiki. Can't ask for a better location, it's literally two blocks away from the world famous, Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. It's only a $7.50 shuttle ride from the airport with a $15 roundtrip ticket. The best thing about staying here is the kitchen. Food is very expensive in Waikiki ($14 for a 3 egg omelette from Ihop). With the kitchen, there is no need to spend money dining out. You can use that money for other things as there is plenty to do in Hawaii. There were a lot of surfers in Waikiki during the time I went (May) as the waves are there during the summer months. The waves are on the north side of the island during the winter months...

I stayed in the dorm rooms. Absolutely no complaints other than I kept getting sand in my bed. But that was my fault :)
