Good cheap budget hotel in Waikiki for the location. However, there are no lifts, but there are only 3x levels in the hotel.

Good for location only
You will get what you pay for. The hotel's location is the only thing that it has going for it. The rooms are in need a total update, there is no lift so be prepared to climb the stairs with your bags. The air conditioner was dirty and as it had to be left on all night due to the temperature we got little sleep as it sounded as though we were right beside a plane engine. There was blood on the door of the bathroom from someone else. There was no wifi in the room (which wasn't a surprise) but inconvenient. There is a resort fee as well which I don't mind paying usually but couldn't see where the money is being spent.

Overpriced, maintenance needed
Shabby hotel. In need of lots of maintenance. Noisy airconditioner. The only plus to this establishment was very friendly staff and comfortable bed. No wifi only in lobby. Resort tax?. What for. The so called free shuttle only ran by the hour from another hotel. They couldn’t tell me where any of the pick ups were. Only the driver of the shuttle could tell me that. An expense at $15 per day for nothing. Costly for what you get. I opted to use the local bus service which ran every 10 minutes and a day pass was $5.50. Or $2.75 for 1 trip.

Don't park your car here.
Got stung with a $15 per night amenities fee even though the booking was fully paid for online. While not a huge sum, I have never experienced this before. Also while there they towed a families hope car from the parking space they had been allocated which evidently ruined their holiday. The staff seemed less than interested in helping them. The room had a kitchenette which was good but dated and the dishes were greasy. A cheap hotel, so we weren't expecting anything grand, but the extra charge and setting that family have their holiday ruined left a bad taste. We won't be staying here again.

Nice people, but a bit of a dive
Nice staff. Access to rooms only by fire escape! left us more than a little worried about the safety and legality of the situation
Anna, au3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
The Room was quite inexpensive so I didnt have very high expectations. The condition of the room was old and the cupboards were hanging off their hinges a bit. The service from Reception was exceptional - The two people at the front desk that I spoke to were excellent and helpful and very friendly. The Location of the hotel is very central in Waikiki, everything was in walking distance.
