Hi
Would say it's some type of Dracaena rather than a brom. I'm guessing that from the leafless trunk??

That is not a bromeliad. That is a Freycinetia, relative of Pandanus. They are often referred to as climbing pandanus due to their vine-like growth habit.

That is the Freycinetia species that is native to the Hawaiian Islands, Freycinetia arborea. The Hawaiian name is leie.
