I love this hostel. I stayed in the eight bed women’s dorm. The kitchen is well equipped. The place is beautiful and reminds me of a cabin from back in tge 70’s. The wifi works well. The bathrooms are spacious and clean. Definitely not the perfect spot for a young person who wants to party and spend their time in Waikiki. The bus stops are nearby to get just about everywhere.
