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.

Rooms are a let down in this hostel - old bunk beds, no individual plugs / lights / lockers and no lock on the dorm room

This hoste is just perfect! Good central location for all places in Maui. Staff is incredible helpful, approachable and fun. Quiet hours from 10.30 pm are enforced, which is great as for many things like sunrise on Haleakala volcano you will have to get up at stupid o'clock. Great kitchen facilities, clean bathrooms, comfy mattresses. Free DIY pancakes for breakfast. Nice, mixed crowd. Overall one of the best I have ever stayed in, will stay here again if I return to Maui.

Highly recommended. Great friendly atmosphere with lots of good people and friendly roomies and atmosphere. Beautiful people from all over the world , Europe , Australia and good energy. However it is best if you have a car but you can always share with others in hostel to save...buses are a bit far and this area of maui is not the closest or best to attractions.

it has a fairly small kitchen and common room but because of that you get to talk to everyone really easy which is a bonus. and free pancakes in the morning.:). I enjoyed the relaxed vibe and friendliness of the people there

A very sweet hostel with nice staff and people. Very quiet which was really nice!! And clean. it's close to the Iao valley which is great. The location is not ideal if you are hoping to be close to a beach. It takes two bus rides and quite a bit of time (since the buses run every hour or hour and half) just to get to a decent beach. But you are close to coffee shops and good eats. It's in a city basically so that can be disappointing if you are looking for something more natural and wild.

Dear guest, thanks for your comments...we are in Wailuku, a small village in central Maui. It would be great if we were right on the beach, but our rates would be much higher then! Aloha!

We only stayed here for two nights but enjoyed our time. The private room was just enough space. The building itself is quite crampped but that just lends to the atmosphere. Everyone was lovely and the staff friendly. Would go back for sure.

Very nice and clean hostel. Good "base of operations" if you've got a rental car (and you do want that in Maui) and good to meet people as well.

The German girl is really nice that works there. I also like that your are pancake breakfast as long as they remember to put out the pancake mix. This was a great hostel to stay in. I love that it had a balcony that you could sit outside and still get internet. The kitchen is small but people were great about sharing the space. We didn't have any trouble with people taking our food or beer. There are 24 hours cameras in the kitchen. This place is also very clean. I would stay here again.

the accomodation makes you feel thanks to the staff and guests an home atmosphere. the cleanliness and rules make the place comfortable and relaxed. if you don't have a specific favourite place to visit the whole maui journey it is very good located on the island able to easily reach west shore central and south maui perfectly. I would definitely recommend this hostel...then free coffee tea and pancakes it's worth your journey breakfast budget!
