It's one of the cleanest and most familiar hostels I've ever been to! Had a great time :)

We enjoyed our stay on the northshore hostel very much. It was clean, safe and the staff was verx friendly. If we'll go back to maui we would pick this hostel again.

Excellent place to base your Maui trip. Quiet town. Friendly hostel. Free pancakes. Very laid back. I used this place as home base for hiking day trips and beach trips. Bedtime tends to be on the early side.

This hostel is great for travelers. I like the cleanliness of the hostel. This hostel is strict in it's evening hours, so be aware of that (depends on what kind of traveler you are). All the places on Maui are pretty far away from each other and so is this hostel, but the public transportation is great on Maui and North Shore is close by a bus stop. I can recommend this hostel, Craig is the most awesome Canadian on Maui and you can find him here!

Good location, nice place and it has everything you need. Good value for money, and it might depend on period but we had to wait in line for the bathroom.

The service is very great. You could get free breakfast at Northshore hostel. The best is the rule that "Keep silence from 10PM - 10:00 AM". Unfortunately, my husband was bite by bugs during the night. Recommend this hostel if you go to Maui with limited money.

Really liked this one, although if you don't have/rent a car, you're left in the middle of nowhere so the location is kinda poor and not close to anything. Staff: Jeanine was great, Scott seemed like we were disturbing him. But hey, was alright. Excellent views on the garden, ventilated rooms and locked front door makes you feel confortable and safe. Great kitchen to meet people, nice terrace to use for dinners with wine. Four clean bathrooms was nice to have.

Good place to be, very well organized, even with a thick guidebook about the hostel and the things to do in town and on the island. The common area is not too big, but makes a perfect spot to meet other travellers. Staff is almost always very helpful and friendly, as well as the housekeeper!! Thanks for the great time!

The hostel really nice but they have too many rules. For example they turn off the TV at 10 PM - even if it's mute. You feel like being in the army.

I had a great time in Maui and staying here was a highlight. The staff are very friends and always willing to help. They always have good ideas for how to spend your day. The hostel has lots of information on what to do and see. The conditions are very clean for a hostel and you feel more like you are staying at home. They offer free all day coffee and pancakes.until 11. The location isn't the best if you don' have a car. Although the bus is just around the corner. I recommend staying here!!

This is not just another hostel, this THE HOSTEL. If you ever had a dream about the perfect hostel is this place. Staff, thank you Scott for being so nice and friendly, is unbelievable. The atmosphere is like in a big family and only nice people can go in there. It was an amazing experience being there , and it worth the money.
