This was my first hostel, so I don't have anything to compare it to. Obviously less nice than a hotel, but you get what you pay for. They did offer free breakfast (all they had was toast and few beverages, but still pretty good) which I liked. The bathroom could've been better. It was still clean, but I would've liked to have hooks and shelves to put my stuff on, and a bath rug. I also would've liked if they supplied us with towels. Maybe thats not something they do at hostels? they just expect cheap travelers to always travel with our own towels? Well I didn't pack a towel with me in my small backpack so that was a bit of a bummer. Its at a convenient location, just a short walk to wakiki beach, near lots of food places, and right next to a ABC store.

got a great price, and staff was helpful at check-in to switch me to another room with fewer people. I stayed for 3 nights, and throughout my stay there were no towels available to use. I stayed in c204, and the back room had no ac so it was pretty warm. the lockers in the room didn't have locks on them, but the staff was accommodating and stored my luggage for me. as they say, you get what you pay for.
