Enjoy a traditional hostelling experience at the only family run hostel in Waikiki. We are in the middle of Waikiki minutes away from beaches, restaurants, shopping and clubs. Our Banyan Courtyard is very popular with our guests and promotes a unique and friendly atmosphere.
Whether sharing cooking duties for a meal in our central kitchen, having a pleasant conversation with new found friends in our comfortable Banyan Courtyard, or Skyping with loved ones and family back home we can be your base of exploration while in Hawaii.
We are one of the smallest, and only, family owned and run hostels in Waikiki. We like to party, but party doesn't get in the way of adventure. We strive to create an environment where you can be among friends, both old and new, yet still get enough sleep to charge ahead tomorrow.
We are situated on Seaside Avenue which is at the geographic center of Waikik between Kuhio Avenue which is the main bus route and Ala Wai Boulevard which runs alongside the Ala Wai canal. We are a 3 block walk to the beach with the main bus route and direct airport shuttle service almost at our doorstep. There are more than 4 clubs and 10 pubs within a 5 minute walk or less.
We have eight dorm rooms with from four to six beds and between. Female and 4-bed dorms have privacy curtains. All except our lowest cost dorms have a lockable storage locker for each guest.
