We went to Hanalei Strings to buy instruments, jokingly asking if they had banjos. We walked into the store mid-morning and were the only customers. The guy reading his computer at the desk was one of the rudest people I've ever encountered. He made it very clear that he was interrupted, had no time to discuss anything and hated having... More

We've purchased two ukuleles here. Both have been great experiences. My daughter was able to take one of their lessons. The staff is great with everyone who walks through their doors!

This store is packed with ukuleles of all types and descriptions. A popular shop in the Chin Young Market in Hanalei. They also advertise ukulele lessons (in store) and rentals, as well as guitar rentals. A great place to check out for the novice or musician!

A wonderful store where you can rent a guitar for the week, or take Ukulele lessons for $20.00 a night, including your instrument, and a glass of wine if desired. It was a fun atmosphere with an excellent instructor. A very good family experience, as the children in the group class appeared to be enjoying themselves the most!

We found this lovely store one evening by chance on our visit to Hanalei. The owner spontaneously invited us to join the "ukulele for beginners" class, which had just started as we entered the store. It was wonderful with a kind of magic atmosphere, especially at the end when a student volunteered to perform a hula dance while we played... More

We were visiting the island and as an avid knitter I had researched the yarn stores thoroughly Hanalie strings had great reviews and I was very excited to go and buy lots of their hand dyed yarns. I even made a list of yarn to buy from their website. Well I could not have been more disappointed. I had expected... More

So my musician husband and I, a yarn crafter, stopped in this shopping center in Hanalei, and were amazed to find a shop built just for us! Very helpful people inside, lots to look at, try out, and buy. I bought some hand dyed in Hanalei yarn, and recently finished my scarf at home. So beautiful! I get a million... More
