Q: What is a hostel?

A: Hostels provide short-term accommodation to travelers, particularly encouraging outdoor activities and cultural exchange for the young. In a hostel guests rent a bed (sometimes a bunk bed) in a dormitory and share bathroom, kitchen, and lounge rooms. Private rooms are often available. The main benefit of a hostel is that one gets to meet other travelers from all over the world. Hostels are usually less formal and less expensive than hotels. They are most frequently used by young travelers. Hostels provide a great opportunity for multi-cultural enlightenment. There is more interaction between the guests than in traditional hotels.

The Waikiki Beachside Hostel is committed to serving our guests and providing daily accommodations; however, due to current events, property hours are modified.

Starting April 1, 2020, the front desk will only be open from 9:00am – 4pm Tuesdays and Saturdays only. Guest check-ins must arrive on those days and within those times and must stay a minimum of 7 days. Key deposit will be $50.

For existing guests, if you need to extend or check-out, be sure to do so during the available front desk times. We advise that all guests be on property and within their rooms by 4pm nightly, but in the event of after-hours entry you may use your room key to enter from the driveway pedestrian gate.

Only registered hostel guests permitted on property. Please note that further amenities and services, including but not limited to housekeeping and hostel operations in general, are subject to change at any time without advance notice.
