About this listing

The space

Located midway between Waikiki and Downtown and on the main bus lines. Near stores and restaurants, about 10 blocks from beach. About 2 miles from the University of Hawaii, Manoa.
This listing is for your own small, lockable, and furnished bedroom in a shared apartment. The apartment has a kitchen and bathroom that are shared with up to four other people. The rooms and apartments are clean, quiet (for the big city) and safe.

If the calendar shows your dates as unavailable, please inquire anyway, we may be able to make an offer for one of our other rooms. Also note that we generally require a ONE WEEK MINIMUM stay, but feel free to inquire if you are looking for a shorter stay.

Thank you for considering HostelAlternative in Honolulu!

Guest access

The Plumeria provides a full kitchen (with stovetop, microwave, and fridge--no ovens) and bathroom for every 3 to 5 guest rooms, and we're careful not to exceed 5 guests for such facilities.
We have two outdoor social areas with barbecue facilities, and a mini-gym with exercise equipment.

Interaction with guests

Of course we will always be available to assist during our normal office hours. We provide an "emergency" phone number to access our on-call person, generally available 24 hours/day. And I personally am pretty good at checking email twice a day: (EMAIL HIDDEN)
We have some resources for touring you can access in the office; and, weather permitting, we host a barbecue every Saturday for our guests so that they may meet other travelers.

Other things to note

We are in the "Big City", and on a busy street. We're peaceful and quiet compared to most of Waikiki, and are a bit of an oasis of green compared to most of the alternatives...however, there is a lot of city noise and, particularly in the evenings until 9 or 10 PM, a large amount of traffic.

Although some major inconveniences occured (dripping water from the ceiling), Richard has made everything possible to make up for it. Thanks for that!

Richard is a good host, and is accommodating. The Saturday barbecue is a good place to grab a free bite and meet some people. The location has traffic noise, but is close to a lot of bus routes, and the main mall on the island.

Its a good location to get set up in the city, close to the main mall and one of the better beaches around the tourist area.

Great place

This is essentially an apartment complexes turned AirBNB. The location is not the greatest and the place is not ideal for a person who is looking for relaxation. That said, what makes this place interesting is the people. You will find the people here stay for a good amount of time (>week)and range with different characters who are super friendly. This place is for extended stay at a good price. Don't expect it to be a hotel, expect it as an adventure.

Excellent accommodation! The staff there were very helpful and kind! The room was very big and clean with fridge and tv. They organize a grill party every Saturday which is an excellent idea! I highly recommend

Great experience from the start to finish. When I had first arrived everyone was extremely easy to work with in regards to getting me into my room and on with my day. The room was the perfect size and more than enough space for just myself. The bathroom and kitchen were a very good size as well. The staff is very informative about the area and did a great job answering any and all of my questions involving finding food, good hikes, and fun local areas. The apartment is literally a mile walk to Ala Moano mall and the beach. It's in a good central location that makes you close enough to everything so going wherever you want will not be a problem. Waikiki Beach, hotels, shopping centers, Downtown, Hawaii Covention Center, Diamond Head State Park, and all the buses. Overall, I had a great experience staying here and would strongly encourage anyone whether its your first time in the area or you have been here before to check this place out.

Richard User Profile

My name is Richard Stancliff. I have served as host and manager at The Plumeria since April, 2011. I previously vacationed in Hawaii and loved it so much I now spend a good part of the year in Honolulu. At age 68, I'm semi-retired and find that this lifestyle fits very well. Some work in the mornings and early afternoons, then the beach and perhaps Waikiki. Does it get any better than this?
