Hokondo Waikiki Beachside Hostel
Lonely Planet review
This private hostel attracts an international party crowd and offers plenty of perks, from a 24-hour internet cafe to surfboard and moped rentals. Like most hostels on sketchy, back-alley Lemon Rd, this one occupies an older apartment complex. Each dorm has its own kitchen, bathroom and telephone, but no air-con. Security, cleaning and hostel management are lax. Covered parking is available ($7 per night).
Our independent authors have visited Hokondo Waikiki Beachside Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Waikiki.
