The dorm I was sleeping at had a lot of cockroaches and ants.

We apologize for the insects. There is a period visit by an exterminating company...they either need to come more often, use stronger chemicals, or we use a different company. Thank you for your feedback. Happy travels to you.

I liked the ambience, the staff was friendly and always keen for a chat, it was clean but I'm not a big fan of the early closing hours of the communal areas. I'm currently working from my laptop and due to the time change from Hawaii to Australia I need to work at night sometimes. It's impossible in a dorm, but still I really enjoyed the time at Honolulu HI!

Thank you for the high rating and your comments. We will discuss having more staff for late hours in the common rooms. We cannot leave the common rooms open without a clerk available for security issues. Thank you for your comments! Happy travels!

It was a good experience. The only thing I found questionable was the comment staff made about "do not usually allow Oahu residents to stay". I had made my reservation on line. I had been living in a different town on Oahu and wanted to stay in Honolulu and do touristy things before I left the island. I have been a resident in other countries/states where I have stayed in hostels and never had anyone tell me that residents of state could not use hostel.

I booked two nights but was told at check-in I'd booked three, and would have to pay for the third even though I hadn't booked it and wasn't staying a third. Thank Buddha I had the print out if my booking which clearly stated two nights, so they had to back down. What if I hadn't have had that? Backpackers are not wealthy and cannot afford to donate money to hostels with unreliable practices.
