Hostelling International Honolulu 2 stars

Manoa, Honolulu

Each all-male or female dormitory room provides a shared fully equipped kitchen, a TV, and a lounge at HI - Honolulu University Hostel. Towels and linens are provided at check in. Lockers are provided and guests' are encouraged to bring their own padlock. Already my 2nd stay here, for a reason. Very quiet, clean, not so far to Waikiki by bus and friendly and kind staff. Family runned business. Very helpfull people. But if you want to be in the centre of Waikiki and have party every night, this is not that place.

Central Maui Hostel

Wailuku

Featuring a restaurant, Central Maui Hostel is set in Wailuku in the Maui region, 5 km from Iao Valley State Park and 5 km from Iao Needle State Monument. The property is located 2.6 km from Maui War Memorial Center, 4 km from Tropical Gardens of Maui and 7 km from Waihee Coastal Dunes and Wetlands Preserve. Very quiet, except for the roosters that are everywhere and they’re noisy, however what can you do, it is their nature and their island. I would recommended this hostel if you’re looking for a reasonable price accomodation on Maui. The island is spectacular
