Missing shelf to store clothing. Air conditioning was noisy but acceptable.

The hostel actually holds to its published quiet hours. The rooms have a AC making for a great sleep. The staff was very helpful. Parking was great! There were plenty of gauge on things to do around the surrounding area too. I would definitely come back here.

I really recommend this hostel if you are visiting Maui! The staff is really fun and helpful. They take care of their customers. The atmosphere is nice and calm. You will get a "family"-feeling here and it is really easy to connect with other people. The bathroom and kitchen is clean. Somehow this hostel attracts nice people and almost everyone that are staying here are really friendly.

Janine made the entire check-in process very easy and was very welcoming. Immediately felt comfortable upon arrival to the hostel. Location is a bit out of the way from a lot of the main attractions but close access to Maui buses and affordable.

Friendliest hostel in Hawaii! The staff were great and it's easy to meet other travellers, especially staying in the dorms. Not too much to do in the immediate area however, I had a car and there are buses so location wasn't an issue for me. Always felt my belongings were safe and the hostel entrance is passcode protected. The kitchen was always open and there is quiet time after 10pm. Scott was a great help letting me use the international phone to sort out a banking issue back home! Thankyou!

Sometimes just 4 bathrooms were not enough. The cleanliness could have better in the bathrooms and the room floors. some more hooks needed to hang one's things. Pancakes and the shuttle service was great!

Hostel was nice and clean. But it took a long time to get the next beaches.

Very good hostel! Super friendly and welcoming, nice people. We cooked together, we rented a car together, although it was raining we had a lot of fun. Definitely one of the better hostels! If you come to Maui, this is one of the best :)

Before pointing out all the nice stuff you can do on the island, the staff preferred to preach the whole rulebook. It felt a bit like back in 6th grade. The facilities were in very good conditions

Pretty good hostel. The location is bit far away from any beaches but it is close to bus lines. The staff was great. Close to a few restaurants and shops. Very comfortable.

No lockers in your room. But they have a lockable room if you want to leave your bag in ask. The location was not the best, but hitchhiking in maui is very easy. Surfboards for rent but youre not allowed on public buses with them. Nice open plan area to eat and socialize. The balcony was well good to chill out on after a long day adventuring. DONT spend money on excursions. Go into the command area and announce youre doing the road to hana or volcano sunrise or beach then share a rented car.
