For most of its history, the YMCA of Honolulu has been known for offering inexpensive accommodations as part of the YMCA mission to serve the community.
The Central YMCA offers rooms for men, women and couples across from Ala Moana Shopping Center. Our location is also walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park as well as convenient to Waikiki. In addition, our friendly, local Welcome Center staff can direct you to the many other points of interest within walking distance, as well those attractions accessible via our public bus system.
We are welcoming all as government restrictions have been greatly reduced.
However, guests arriving from the U.S. mainland or out of country, will need to review and comply with current government guidance. For information on Hawaii Safe Travels protocols, please click here.
Accommodations at the Central Y are not suitable for quarantine stays.
If you are mandated by the State of Hawaii to quarantine, you will not be able to stay at the Central Y.
Safety Measures at Central Y
Also, due to the covid-19 pandemic, guests must be willing to adhere to the guidelines below to insure the health and safety of all guests and staff:
- Daily temperature checks
- Wearing masks anytime in the building, except while in your room
- Social Distancing guidelines
- Limited or no community gathering areas
- Self linen and towel service so that staff can focus on extra cleaning
- No visitors in the building
- Food deliveries are to be met outside the building
The Y will terminate the stay of any guest unwilling to follow these guidelines
For the safety of all guests we do perform Criminal History Background Checks (CHBC) on all guests. Our background checks center on violent and sexual crimes and anyone with these convictions in their background will not be allowed to stay with us.
- For guests pre-paying for 1-2 days, the guest is responsible for the cost of the CHBC.
- For guests pre-paying for 3 or more days, the Y will cover the cost of the CHBC. (3 days payment is non-refundable).
- Until the guest clears the CHBC, the weekly rate is not available.
Walk-ins are welcomed and accepted, but due to our safety protocols, it may take several hours before a walk-in can check-in. Reservations are highly encouraged.
Check-in times are between 8am-4pm, with rooms being available after 12pm. Guests with pre-paid reservations, your room will be available any time after 12pm.
The Central YMCA offers rooms for men, women and couples. All rooms are private with the option of a Community or Private shower and bathroom. All registered minors must be accompanied by an individual who is 18 years of age or older at all times.
