well, maybe not cheap, but affordable, especially for north shore and especially during the surf comps! Awesome beachfront location at Three Tables Beach (studio room). Very basic, low gloss room and facilities but suited mum & 3 teenagers. We loved the norht shore, the beach front room, riding the bikes to Pipeline & Sunset beaches, the food trucks, and the...

we were a group of 11 people and booked the main house of 3 bedrooms with two sets of bunks in each room, dorm style. There were two bathrooms with a shower and toilet in each room. We had the entire house to ourselves as we booked for 12 people, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and lounge. The house was located underneath...

It´s hard enough to find ANY accomodation on the North Shore, let alone an affordable one. The place has a nice vibe and attracts budget travellers ( if there is such a thing on Hawaii ) and surfers from all over the world. We stayed at one of the apartments they offer. It was like sleeping on one of the...

It was our second time staying there and probably our last. To start the person in charge for the reservation messed up my request (the first time too) and instead of booking a private room booked 1 bed in a dorm. Well… we were 2. Partly was my fault because I actually trusted what she was doing and making a...

beautiful location and most of the staff were friendly but the overall conditon of the hostel was not in good shape. one of my frineds got bed bugs and the bathroom had no soap and lights broekn. Very good with bike hire but just too expensive for the level of quality in the hostel.

I stayed at the Back House for 4 nights. The staff who I had dealt with were very friendly and helpful and were very accommodating for my late arrival and early departure. The surrounds were great - Three Tables beach is pretty much at your door step and a short walk from Waimea Bay. There is a nearby supermarket and...

First up this place is unique and I believe the owner knows this so feels like they do not have to do a lot else with it. The mattress was brown. I'm not fussy but that was pretty bloody gross. The cleaner was great and I stayed in the back house and the whole concept and potential for this place...

Amazing staff, wonderful location within walking distance to many beaches, food trucks and grocery store. I stayed in one of the cabins that is shared between 6 people. shared bathroom, shared kitchen- both large and very clean. I was very impressed- I never felt over crowded, and I always felt safe. It would have been nice to have guaranteed Wi-Fi...

I went up to the North Shore with a couple of friends during my three weeks in Oahu. Stayed for two nights in a dorm room at this hostel. The location was good for us, because we had a car, but otherwise it is pretty far from everything except the beach :-) There's a store a few minutes away by...

Great location. Close to grocery and across from 3 tables beach. Front desk people were both really nice, Greg and a woman who was originally from Michigan. Common area was ok. A little dirty but fine. I wasn't expecting the Hyatt but the room was horrible. No AC and the fan was broken. No closet or place to set your...

Aloha Sorry for your bad experience. Yes it is true we don't have any AC in any of our rooms. Usually the fan is good enough. It's unfortunate yours was broken, please come to us next time with concerns and we will be happy to help fix them. Glad you enjoyed sharks cove :) Mahalo
