Great place to have fun! Free tours every day, which were very good!

Over all great stay.


this is an hostel where to have fun and meet new people. If you are looking for somewhere quiet and very clean, you are not at the right place!


I had to wait for two hours because my room wasn't ready. In addition, I didn't get what I actually booked (4bed female) but a 6bed mixed room for the same price.


The free tours are great! Definitely do the Big/Little Beach tour on the Sunday. This is a pretty perfect hostel except its a bit far from any shops or bars.


Pros: The staff are friendly and the daily tours are excellent. Kitchen is pretty big. Pay phone was handy to use. Coin operated laundry was cheap. Cons: The 4 bed dorms are really small, hardly any room to store 4 peoples worth of luggage. Wifi is horrible in the rooms.


The free tours are great, and you will meet very fast a lot of new friends :)


the perfect way to explore maui


Great hostel if you want to make party. You meet many young people. The hostel has a good offers of deals for tours if you don't want to travel on your own.


Nice Location with Hang Loose atmosphere. Great Hostel, but not really clean restrooms and to expansive over Christmas.


Good atmosphere with a lot of open minded travelers. One of the greatest things is that the hostel arrange with free tours every day according to a schedule!


This place is a must stay. The staff and tours make it all worth it. I had so much fun I'm happy I came to Maui and stayed here. I'd do it again. The private bathrooms (available to everyone) and kitchen with supplies available to make your own food is a plus. I couldn't score high on location because its a 20 minute bus ride from the beach but again I had a blast!


Should get an earlier start on your Road to Hana tour and do the backroad returning from Hana. Owner/Manager should drive on the backroad from Hana and see its improved conditions. Should do a tour to view sunrise at Haleakala. Should buy an extra flashlight for the lava tube swim..

Way overpriced for what they offer-mattresses and beds are old and worn out, rooms are too close to the highway so you hear the road noise all night, kids party all night with doors slamming until 4 am- all typical of a 20-something hostel. This hostel should only charge $ 25./night at the most. Otherwise it's a great place with nice staff. Don't pick the rooms on the road side (#20) or the room over the office. It's a very old bldg with no sound proofing or air conditioning.
