I love living here. The staff, amenities and location are spot on. I love being able to walk to school, down to earth and starbucks new opening is extremely convenient.
I have had an amazing experience living at Hale Mahana since December 2018 as a graduate student at the university. All of the amenities are fantastic and useful, the community feels very safe, it is in a convenient location, and the building is maintained very well by the staff. It is the best student housing option by far and I have absolutely no complaints. I’d highly recommend renting here!
The Hale Mahana has been a Life Boat in a dangerous economic time for me. I came to Hawaii with only the money from the sale of my Home in Henrico Virginia and a hope for a career in CDL-A Cargo Shipping and Passenger transportation and Diesel Mechanics here in the Pacific. I also am currently working employment positions that will eventually build a Professional Security history to include when I apply to Local, State and Federal employment or their Civilian Contract affiliations. Such work is when Cargo or Couriers or Passenger Transportation involves extra security measures. I have very little money left to accomplish this and my academic aptitudes are facing adverse challenges. However; the Hale Mahana has provided an environment that creates access to the educational pursuit especially by the affordability while I move forward with the challenges ahead. I also appreciate the modern safety features of the building and the security.
It’s wonderful living here.. The roof top is worth spending your weekends with amazing food places near by. I would recommend this place to everyone.
So far it’s been great I love the atmosphere here. It’s a beautiful place and I love how it’s geared to fit students needs. There are great restaurants downstairs too.
So far so great. I really like the amenities available for all of the residents that are living in the building. Location is great as well!!
The apartment is great but my room is very small. I love having the rooftop and the gym. Great amenities along with the parking garage. Liking it here so far
It is such an ease to live at Hale Mahana. From the great apartment to the beautiful rooftop space to the community directly adjacent to the university—there’s nothing more you could ask for!
Hale Mahana is a good place to live in because it is close by the University of Hawaii at Manoa and there are many places nearby to grab food.
Hale Mahana has been a wonderful place to live. It is located close to campus as well as major bus lines — super clean and very friendly staff.
So far I've had a decent experience.
Two pros:The apartment is usually always clean and the location is super convenient for me.
Two cons: the rent is way to expensive compared to other apartments that also have the same amenities.
Maintenance never gets done or fixes anything.
Great place to live! I love using the new Starbucks machine, study rooms, and gym on the 14th floor. The distance to school and all utilities included are the biggest reasons I decided to renew my lease for a year. Majority of the time, Hale Mahana staff responds promptly to questions and concerns that I may have and works to resolve them. I had one question about designating a separate washer for people with animals only, but did not receive a response.
wish the floors weren’t concrete and didn’t get dirty easily, better ventilation. I like the amenities especially the roof. The printers come in very handy.
Being apart of Hale Mahana is so cool. The room it self is big and open, enough to have a few neighbors over. The community center on the top of the building is great as well.
Aside from the mold mishap at end of last semester, I have greatly enjoyed my time as a Hale Mahana Resident and all the amenities the complex offers.
I love the amenities this place has to offer and it is definetly a safe and clean place to live but my only complaint is that there are some people who work here who are not approachable and when I do ask them a question at the front desk it seems like an inconvenience to them.
My resident experience was good for the most part. Should fix the washing machines as they break or are out of service at least twice a month if not more. Other than that I loved it here.
I was impressed with variety of reward choices. They are really good and brands that everyone would need. I also liked the cash out option. I will keep using this service. It is perfect.
Hale Mahana is an overall nice apartment yet it has its down falls. A few things that I like is having my own bathroom, having a gym, and I enjoy the study rooms. I don't like how I pay $950 a month for amenities such as AC and suddenly my AC can't go below 75 degrees. I also don't like that they search my apartment when I am gone from break. I also know that it is not under the staff's control but my roommates cause a lot of problems in my life. I also find it frustrating that we pay a decent amount of money a month for parking when retail customers take up the parking garage and don't pay becuase the security system is STILL not set up and makes me question my safety in the building.
Nice apartments. A/C currently running hot due to new rules though which is kinda rubbish. Laundry facilities don't always work and have to stand and wait for them sometimes. Friendly and helpful staff.
Awesome place, love the gym but the seats on the benches need to get fixed. Views are nice too, and it’s very easy to bring friends over and hang out.
Overall I’d give Hale Mahana 3 stars. The amenities are excellent and it is in a convenient location to school and other necessary things. My only complaint would be the constant construction noise, the strict rules, and the price of the facility.
Everyone seems to keep to themselves around our floor. This is okay for me because I prefer that we keep to ourselves for the most part. The construction noise is a minor issue, as well as certain resident's lack of respect for the amenities around the apartments (i.e the lounge and trash).
Convenient location. Cooperative, caring staff. If you're creative, you can easily watch some amazing sun rises and sun sets. Costly, and with the transitory nature of the typical renters some of the residents seem callous, uncaring, conceited.
It’s pretty good I like the people I have a few issues with my roommates and the room is super small and the air conditioning is iffy sometimes. But otherwise it’s great
Love the sky deck, and living here. It’s so great! The rooms look a lot larger though on the website and on Instagram then how they actually are. The fridge is tiny.
Perfect student housing close to campus. The monthly rent is really expensive, but I prefer it to the UH dorms. Hale Mahana is a new fully furnished apartment with utilities included. I had trouble with the application/lease process, but the staff was able to help me out. I enjoy living here.
Hale Mahana is a great place to live. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The apartments are clean and beautiful — great location, super close to the UH Manoa campus.
So far my resident experience has been great! I love my apartment so much better than on campus housing! Love how my laundry is on my floor and how the staff is so nice!
The community at Hale Mahana is very helpful. Whenever there was an issue in my apartment that me or my roommates faced, the maintenance & staff helped us.
The experience that I lived here is currety awesome. From the people to the community and the environments, everything is peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. Overall, I’ll higjly recommend this place to my friends next term.
I believe that living here has made a huge difference in school work. It’s more quiet and away from all the partying. There’s also a lot of privacy versus staying on campus!
When I was looking around for apartments, I wanted to find a place that was affordable that allowed me to have my own personal space. Fortunately, I found Hale Mahana. So far the staff has been amazing. The one exception I would say that wouldn't get it a full 5 stars is that the building still had a few issues when moving in. Besides that I would recommend looking into moving here if you are looking for an affordable place to live on such an expensive island
Living here is great but really expensive, it’s close to campus but not close to many grocery stores. We were told there’s going to be food places downstairs but they’re still in construction. I’m only home to eat and sleep.
I love hows there's AC in Hale Mahana and not in the UH dorms. It's really spacy and a lot of room compared to the dorms as well. We have the best food with Pieology downstairs.
I really like it here but I don't have any roomates and they told me they would send me an email with their contact info if I ever got one. About a month ago someone mentioned to me I might be getting a roommate but I haven't received any email or anything and now I'm kind of scared some random person is going to come into my apartment without notice.
Overall, living at Hale Mahana is great. The rooms are modern, and living here is so much better than a dorm. The only thing that aren’t so good are that the paint on the walls is very cheap and flakes off, and some of the staff are not very nice.
I enjoy the community because it was an extremely convenient choice and the quality of housing is so much better than the student housing on campus.
Living at Hale Mahana has been a great experience! The staff is very kind and helpful. I recommend all my friends to check out living here because it is in an amazing location and the amenities that are offered are great as well.
So far the experience has been great! I really appreciate having security in the building and a cleaning crew. All of the staff at Hale Mahana have been so amazing!
Apartments are good, well designed and equipped with all facilities required by a student. I would definitely recommend my colleagues to stay here.
S K S.
Everything about it is literally perfect. My only complaints are how thin the walls are and how small the bedrooms are. Other than that zero complaints from me.
Love everything about this place. It will be better once more stores downstairs open up, and once the study room fobs are put in place. But really no complaints!
I enjoy this building and all that it has to offer despite the situations I have with my roommates. The rooms are nice and I enjoy having my own space in which I can study and relax. I love the 14th floor and gym.
absolutely love it here everything is so nice and its pet friendly and the parking garage fits my car so that's a bonus. only down side the rooms are super tiny
Hale Mahana has been a very good place to live, many of the CA's are very nice and approachable. The maintenance orders are normally fixed very quickly and efficiently
I like Hale Mahana. The staff prepares events/gatherings every week, this helps build the feeling of a community. Everything at the residence is well set up; however, it is a pity that some people seem not to take care of the common areas or take them for granted.
The building is super clean, we haven't had problems with our apartment. I like that it is pet friendly because that's really hard to find here.The staff has been friendly and helpful. The move in process was easy and efficient.
Hale Mahana is a great, brand new apartment building very close to UH Mānoa. However, there are still many areas they could work to improve on
I love the place. But with the maintenance and security in the past two months, I was surprised. Other than that the beauty of the view and amenities are great! Staff is on point and cares for the Student’s needs.
It’s been really nice living here. It’s news and mostly all the appliances work. Great view too. We have had some problems with the fridge but besides that it’s really nice
really well organized. haven’t had any issues since living here. good setup on the roof and everything. units work great. really enjoy staying here!
I love it here! It’s absolutely everything I could ever need all in one convenient place. I couldn’t ask for a better place to live or a better staff around me.
All around great experience in regards to the property, the room, the staff, and all the amenities. The residents here are all very friendly.
The People at the counter could be trained better. Somestimes they do not know answers to Questions or give answers that seem to be wrong or missleading
I absolutely love this apartment! The ammenities are incredible and they have activities every week! I have recommended to many friends, most of which will be signing leases soon!
The facility is great. Staff works well. Room is beautiful in particular bed is so good to sleep. Location is very good, five minutes to UHM by bus.
I’ve loved every minute of my apartment! Had a few issues with maintenance at the beginning but things have slowly been fixed and we’re almost completely set!
The building is a beautiful brand new build with very nice interior, however it is unfinished and I am often woke up due to the construction outside. The amenities offered here are amazing and well beneficial for students. I appreciate how many things are available to us. I do not like the laundry situation given that the machines will never read anyones cards. I also do appreciate that there has been two fire alarms already. I had places to be both times and was stuck outside waiting for it to be over to go back to my apartment and get what I needed. It seems very inconvenient for a lot of people. I love all of the fun activities that go on at the apartment! It provides many social events to meet people and have fun! Overall I enjoy staying here, there are just a few minor things that I don't like.
Hale Mahana is a convenient option if you don't want to hassle with living on campus at UH Manoa or living off campus. It is safe, reliable, and close to campus!
I really like the facility here, such as study room, gym, and computer room. However, some night people will play really loud music at night.
I love living here because of how nice and new everything is. The fact that all the utilities are included is awesome too! I only wish car parking were cheaper.
It’s nice. There’s lots of activities, the staff are great, it’s new, and it’s got air conditioning... what more could you ask for? Oh and did I mention it has air conditioning???
There’s something really great about Hale Mahana. I haven’t quite put my finger on it yet, but there’s something stand out about this building. Maybe it’s that it’s (thankfully) not Frear. Maybe it’s that no one has slept in my bed before, or that the pool table actually has felt. Maybe it’s that I have a semblance of control over my living arrangement and environment. But it’s probably that the 7-Eleven is 300 yards away, and there’s a Pieology in the building, and that I can get to a bus stop in under 2 minutes. Living here makes life so easy. It’s scary.
Hale Mahana is a great place to settle in for a student who is far away from home. It's not just a nice place to live, but it's also a community with good vibes.
I love all the amenities that Hale Mahana has to offer. I also love how close it is to UH Manoa and the fact that there bus stops, shuttle stops, and biki stations right out front.
Hale Mahana has been so awesome thus far! It's close to campus, there's a gym, study rooms, and the workers and assistants are so helpful :)
Living here is definitely worth the price I'm paying. The amenities are amazing and I love all the staff members! Hale Mahana is near UH Manoa, which is such a convenience.
Really nice place, kinda small but so comfy! Thanks for the spam filter lol. I love the roof a lot mainly, I need a tv tho haha. It’s a lot of fun though
Amenities (kitchen, a/c, etc): clean, up to date, and really useful.
Common spaces (lobby, gym, rooftop deck): welcoming, modern, and really like the availability
Staff: people that I call are useful, but the people at the front desk often give me misinformation/ tell me different information as other staff and are unwelcoming
Love it here! Nice not to have to spend extra on utilities, and could not live without the air conditioning. I spend a lot of time on the fourteenth floor, love the gym and the lounge chairs
It has everything I need and then some! I wasn’t excited to move here after living on my own but it proved to be worth it and I’m loving it!
I think the rent is too expensive, and there are way too many regulations, but I guess other things are fine. I like the updates we get when there’re hurricanes.
It is great here! Everything is so nice and really makes for a healthy living environment while I go to school. There are so many amenities that are available to me and it makes being a student easier!
Great location and nice staff, but I'm having trouble hearing back about a complaint I made. So they are slow on fixing problems. Love the study rooms, great for weekend study groups!
it’s nice to live in clean apartments, even though some stuff is still new & needs a little fixing sometimes. i love being close to the grocery stores and food places nearby, and it isn’t too far from school.
I like that apartment that I live in, Hale Manhana. I guess since it is brand new their is not much to complain about. It is very convienent to the campus and I feel pretty safe. The surrounding area can be a bit quite sketchy sometimes. I feel like the office staff could be a bit more accomendariong. Like one day My mom wanted to drop off a package at the front for me and they said they couldn't hold it and she would have to bring it up to my apartment- and other things of that nature.
Great experience at Hale Mahana, good location, community, and living conditions. Being able to cruise at the rooftop is a plus along with the 24 hour gym
I’ve really enjoyed everything Hale Mahana has to offer! It’s location is perfect for UH Manoa students and I’ve gotten to meet some pretty awesome people!
Its been great. The gym and study rooms come in handy when I need to study or workout. The studios have a kitchen which really is useful for my living experience
My resident experience has been great! I love all of the staff members they are super nice! Also, I love all the amenities I have here at Hale Mahana!
Josh De La Rosa is an amazing staff member. He should get a raise. He had given me the full complete tour of Hale Mahana apartments and I had fallen in love with the place. He is an outstanding worker and is there when you need it.
I enjoy the air conditioning and friendly environment. The rooms are very nice. The gym is amazing and convenient. All of the staff is friendly.
Very friendly environment and I feel very safe living at Hale Mahana. I enjoy having the gym so close and living with my good friends in a clean apartment.
Love the safety and cleanliness of this place! Super nice, love my apartment, don’t wanna go home!! The gym is amazing and the view is even better!
My experience has been great. Friendly staff and a beautiful building. I love the proximity to school. The Hui cars share has also been a great addition to all the amenities already included.
Everyone is so sweet and welcoming. I have had hardly any issue and if there is a slight issue someone will help you in a heartbeat. Overall I’d recommend this living space to anyone who decided to move to Oahu.
I really enjoy living at Hale Mahana! My roommates are really friendly and positive, the cleaners are doing a great job, the staff is always very helpful, and the facilities are great. I am also really happy that we now have better security then when I moved in, so we can feel safe here. The only thing I wold change is that I wish the kitchen had pans, plates and other utensils, because buying all these things, especially for us international students who are staying here for such a short time and are not able to bring it back, can get very expensive.

I love living in brand new apartments, with great furniture and appliances. Having an individual lease puts my mind at ease, as well as being able to have pets in the apartment! Great study areas provided, a full gym, and awesome rooftop lounge areas. Definitely a good choice to live at Hale Mahana!
So far I have been LOVING living here at Hale Mahana. Everything is so clean and new and there are so many places to eat around us as well as grocery shop. It’s a perfect off campus but close distance to school. I love the 14th floor but do wish that there were more study rooms
Great location, within walking distance from UH campus. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. Near multiple bus lines, so it's easy to get around Honolulu. The apartment is immaculate and well kept.
Best place I’ve ever lived in! Awesome people. Great staff. Excellent service. Will fix things right away. Very clean and well kept. Fun lounge on the roof.
I love it. Perfect location. Staff are very quick in responding to questions and concerns. Neighbors are nice and respectful. Always clean in the hallways and security is on point.
So far most everything has been positive, but there are a few growing pains since it is a new building and construction on shops is ongoing.
The AC is great and the apartment is really nice, but the doors have trouble closing. Even after someone came to fix the doors, the issues still persist.
I love the style of the apartments and all the amenities included!! also the location is so perfect and I love having laundry facilities on each floor
Love living here, great CAs, my CA is amazing on the 4th floor, always helping out and making sure we are okay. Faculty in general is amazing, asked for shelves in our kitchen cabinets and got them within the hour.
Despite it being crazy and hectic getting everyone situated, the front desk staff have been great to the residences. They have been trying to get to our every needs, but it seems like there is just too much going on. Hope everyting settles in sooner than later.
I love it it’s friendly, seemingly safe and quite! I will definitely renew my lease next year without question! I will also tell others about this incredible, convenient apartment.
I really enjoy my resident experience so far. Great roommates, great place to live, amazing view from the roof, awesome CA, not much more you can ask more for honestly!
I love the Hale Mahana community! My favorite part is the Sky Deck. There are tables to study or eat on, couches that can fill all of your friends, study rooms with breathtaking views and a fitness center with a gorgeous view of Manoa Valley!
It was great and super easy to transfer. Have enjoyed working with the staff and was easy to apply. Still waiting on my room details, but know that will come soon.
The staff was super attentive and friendly with the arrangement regarding the apartment. A great big thanks and an extra big thumbs up for LaNiece J. Dillon who help me through the technicalities!
The staff is really nice, they were able to answer all of my questions. The show room looked amazing I am very excited to stay at Hale Mahana
I haven’t moved in yet, but so far the experience with this community has been amazing. The people working in the leasing office were so welcoming and helped to answer all of my questions
i have no stayed in the hale mahana apartments yet. However, i am super excited to see what there is! all of the advertisements look amazing!
Hale Mahana is a very welcoming environment and community. Every time I have a question about the apartments the employees are quick to answer them and are always extremely helpful.
Really Helpful setting up Lease! I got all my questions answered and also answered all of my parents questions even over phone. Cant wait for August !!!
