The girl at the front desk with the dark brown hair is a bitch. Why does she even have this job if she has an attitude all the time. The washer sucks it smells and it’s never cleaned out. Gross stuff is sitting under the ring

Exceptional experience due to location and access to UH. Down to Earth, Verizon and the selection of food options being close makes for a great environment for college kids.

Great place to live with fully furnished rooms- however the fridge is too small to share as well as the dishwasher with three people, and I’m living in a 4 person apartment. There’s no way it would accommodate four people

nice, clean, but not satisfied with the washer and dryer outside the unit. I hope that in the future the laundry is in the unit. About the lock out is also another thing. I don’t think that residents should pay every lock out

Living here is fun, parking is easy to find but its expensive... $120 a month for parking is kind of a rip off. Also the 4th floor smells like dog and my friends always ask me why and I have no answer haha. My room is nice though how its already furnished and spacious.

The rooms are pretty good for what you pay for. Resident portal is kind of confusing sometimes. AC is really nice. Parking garage is really crowded because of all the retail in and out. Laundry isn’t included in rent which seems ridiculous cause utilities is.

The apartment building is pretty new and feels like too despite being almost a year old. Most residents are friendly and usually respectful during the night time, say for a few who cause noise during the night but only for a short time. The internet is good, especially if you are using an ethernet cable connected to say a computer or gaming console, but there are times where it goes out for hours but so far it has only happened once in the past two months. The amenities such as the gym and the study rooms are great. The location is also great, you are near many food markets and places. It is also good if you are a usual bus rider as the building is right along bus routes that lead straight to UH Manoa and they come very frequently. The only complaint would be the chance that you may have a few rowdy residents but they do a good enough job to put the noisy residents far away from the quiet ones.

Everything’s pretty alright, my neighbors next door can be loud though and nothing has been done to stop them from running up and down the hallway randomly. A maintenance request once took over two weeks, but it finally was completed. AC works great, beds are comfy.

Based on first impressions of Hale Mahana, I can't give higher than 3 stars. Their website provides an interface that is confusing to use, they are near impossible to contact via email, and the time difference from mainland to here makes trying to call them at appropriate times very difficult. Trying to schedule a tour left me talking to a staff member who told me that I probably wasn't the right fit for the complex, seeing as it was so expensive. Over summer, after having signed my lease, I called probably a total of 10 times to ask questions and get my living situation figured out. Each time I was told something different, was given incorrect email addresses, or told that I couldn't be told the information. Flash forward to move-in. Although the process itself was fairly painless, I walked into my new (small) apartment and was bombarded by sticky spots on all the furniture, broken appliances, hair and toe nail clippings scattered throughout, mold on the shower curtain, grease stains, overall just a disgusting presence, especially for such a new building. That being said, living here is a good transition from dorm living into actual apartment life. You are surrounded by mostly students, and the staff is good at hosting resident events (much like the dorms) to get you aquatinted with new people. It also has great amenities like the rooftop, gym, air conditioning, and computer lab. The maintenance requests from the first week were filled quickly and efficiently. Rent is expensive for the living space itself, but it is a nice place for location and area. After settling it, I do enjoy living here, but there is still lots to be improved upon.

Great spot! Great rooftop (by far my favorite part)! Rooms smaller than expected; Common area small and the kitchen is Not a "full-size" kitchen. AC units could be maintained better and screens could be placed in windows to prevent bugs from flying in. AC, private rooms, and bathrooms are great! Staff and security really cool individuals.

The staff here has been rude to my roommate and I on several occasions, lying about what was said to one of us to the other. And there are so many fees and ways of milking us for our money. We were uninformed that we would be living with a 27 year old with a dog until we stepped into the apartment on move-in day, and we quickly became extremely uncomfortable. My roommate experienced allergic reactions to the dog, and I was disturbed by its incessant barking whenever its owner left it alone. When speaking to staff about my roommate's reactions, we were told that the manager needed days to revisit the problem, which was pretty unbelievable as the dog was posing a health threat. Then when my roommate went back to rediscuss these issues, the manager lied about what she had initially said. When we were finally switched, she waived my roommate's switch fee but not mine, which my roommate requested be divided between the two of us. After we moved in to the new apartment, we found the previous tenant's dirty towel in the bathroom, dirty food tray in the microwave alone with food stains and pieces of hair, and more. This was truly outrageous, seeing as we had to pay even more money to move into this room. When I went to speak to the manager, I brought up my concerns about her not waiving my switch fee even though I was inconvenienced by the dog and our new, gross room. She proceeded to lie to me again about having just brought down both mine and my roommate's switch fees 50%, when she had told my roommate that she just split my full fee between us. For these reasons, I am extremely disappointed. Not to mention the astronomical rent prices. Otherwise, the gym and printing room are helpful amenities, and it is definitely a cleaner apartment than others in the area.

Very clean and no complain! The rent is a bit expensive, but if you live in a nice place like this, you can't move anywhere! There's a gym, all you can drink Starbucks, all coolers and WiFi! Close to university, many bus stops and really accessible! I can go to Ala Moana with no transfer and it is very accessible! I really recommend it

So far I have enjoyed my experience in Hale Hahana. I love how close it is to campus as well as many fun things to do. My least favorite part id have to say is how soft the walls are. I have accidentally dented them a few times already doing simple activities. This clearly isn’t a big deal but perhaps useful feed back. Over all the places are very clean and set up nicely for there small size.

I have found living here very useful. It is near campus, and I love that it houses students from all over. I live on the lower floors of the campus, and I will admit that at night it is still loud from motorcycles, cars, sirens, etc. But I suppose that is city life. I REALLY like it that each room has its own AC unit that can go down to as low as 60°. The rooms are a good size. The only downside about my apartment is that it doesn’t have a dining table, so I have to hold my plates while I eat them, or bring them into my room and eat them on my desk. Other than this, I think this community has great potential!

Living at Hale Mahana has been a great experience so far. My roomate and I were just talking about how living in the on-campus dorms was so toxic for our mental health, and we are glad to now have a place we can call home. Everyone is super nice and helpful as well, and its nice to have security downstairs when living in a big city like Honolulu.

I love living here. I just think that the coffee station upstairs should be up-kept better.

Hale Mahana is the best! A rooftop terrace and studying rooms, a gym on 14th floor are all cool and nice. There's also a computer room you can use a printer to print or copy something.

I enjoy the atmosphere of the place; it's a really great area to just hangout and chill with friends. The rooftop areas are always really accessible, and never overcrowded. I vibe well with my roommates. There is not much ventilation, though, so sometimes my towels from my showers or whenever I come back from the beach take awhile to dry.

It’s really nice, I love the gym. I elliptical and lift weights a lot so it’s really convenient to have it in my own building, no need to purchase a gym membership! The roof top deck is also so great, I love lounging up there and looking out at the city or visiting with friends over the barbecue. The elevators are SUPER timely I love in a higher floor and I swear it only takes like 20 seconds to get to my floor, over all it’s a great community of people and I’m very glad I came to live in hale Mahana. Also, the AC is a GREAT amenity. One of my favorites

Though I have only been living here for a short time, I love the community of Hale Mahana! All of my neighbors and fellow residents are sweet and talkative, and I have yet to have an awkward elevator ride with a stranger. Many people are respectful and courteous to others, and I look forward to meet so many new people this year! The only room I see fit for improvement is the desk staff. The RAs (though I believe that Hale Mahana has given them different titles) are kind and smiling whenever I have reached out to the one-on-one, but I am not going to lie that move-in day seemed quite overwhelming for them. I am aware that this is only the apartment’s second year open, but move-in seemed cluster and stressful for everyone. Nobody was smiling or introducing themselves, and they all seemed flustered. Plus, the waiting time was quite long to get my key, despite having completed everyone correctly. There was a large miscommunication in regards to renter’s insurance which left most everyone, the residents and the RAs scrambling to find a fix last minute. Additionally, I was waiting nearly 35 min for a parking permit (despite having nobody in line in front of me the entire time), only for it to take 2 min for completing the form and picking up my permit. Additionally, one of the aspects about move-in day that upset me the most was when the students who had arrived a few minutes early were waiting outside, the staff came out to take a photo and nobody smiled or said welcome or anything. All of us were so excited and happy to meet them, and not a word was said. A simple, “Hi guys! We will be opening the doors shortly and are so excited to meet you! Thanks for waiting!” would have been beyond nice. Other than the few negative RA experiences, staff has been awesome at meeting accommodations and answering questions.

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.

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.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

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.

4 / 5

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

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).

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

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.

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.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

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.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

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.

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.

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.
