[quote=MZ_RN;1906862]Hi, I am currently a traveler working at Queen's and living in Waikiki. If you're looking for your own housing, I would suggest also looking around on craigslist.com. I also went to several condo buildings that I was interested in living in and checked out their bulletin board of rentals (if you're already here in Hawaii. Thats how I found the next place that I will be staying at during the winter season). A lot of rentals in Waikiki are fully-furnished (including housewares, linens, pots and pans, etc.) because most are rented out as vacation rentals. Please keep in mind that starting this month of Nov., a lot of rental prices increase because of the holidays as well as the Honolulu Marathon in Dec., Probowl in Jan., etc. Average studio prices range from $1200-$3200, 1-bedrooms range from $2200-$3600. Expensive! All depends on location and view. I know of some travelers that stay at Discovery Bay, Ilikai Marina, and Waikiki Banyan. They all seem to be happy with their accomodations.
The bus system is great. There is a bus stop right across the street from where I am living. Many of the travelers that I know at Queen's take the bus. My experience with the bus has been good. It is very reliable; approx. 15-20min. bus ride to Queen's from the outskirts of the Waikiki area (close to Ala Moana).
Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.
Thank you very much for all information.
