    One of the best Hostels i have stayed at, first time travelling alone and was nervous but staying at the banana bungalo helped me meet new people really easily and the tours allowed me to still explore the island on a budget, the staff are also amazing and very friendly and helpful. Sam and Jeff are one of the best tour guides i have ever met and were always fun to be around, would highly recommened this hostel for anyone

    This was a great intro to the hostel world. The BB had a nice lay out, good overall vibe. Daily tours for free various ages from all over ( mostly younger ) my bunk mates where very nice however the rooms it’s hot because you have to keep the door closed and there is only a fan. Also the free pancake breakfast is a you make it your self deal. There is plenty room to keep your labeled food items. And looks of cook wear and utensils. People are pretty good at cleaning up.

    daily trips are amazing and hostel is close to airport. very social and easy to meet people. Sam was awesome leading the day trips on the days I was there. Would definitely recommend! Would have loved a little better air circulation in my room though - it got a little hot and stinky with just a standing fan. Thanks for a great stay!!

    I loved the people. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The tours they offer are great, however it is kind of far from other attractions without a car. I wish there was air conditioning in the rooms. I was in a 6 people mixed dorm room with one fan. It was VERY hot and stuffy in there. And the line for the bathrooms was not fun. Overall i had a great time and met some great people! I would stay here again? Mayne at a 4 people dorm instead.

    Location is a bit sketchy, but the atmosphere in the hostel more than makes up for it. Everyone is friendly and accepting. The tours are great, all the staff is on board with the fun atmosphere. Would come again.

    The hostel is charming. The kitchen area was not clean. The hostel allows smoking and alcohol in common areas. Music is very loud. I would prefer a non smoking hostel

    I stayed for 4 days with a friend and at first was super disappointed when we arrived. The location is not great - really far from any beach and the Uber driver from the airport told us we were staying in the ‘hood’ of Maui. Bathrooms didn’t feel that clean, rooms were v basic - but wouldn’t expect anything else. Some of the staff were quite rude. Only saving grace was the tours which were great - if you could get on one. The sign up process is absolutely ridiculous and needs to be changed.

    Worst hostel. Rude staff, could be way cleaner, no organisation what so ever. Young hostel. If u are not the type of personne that like drinking game and drinking until u get sick, that isnotyour place. I got told I was too old to be there. No A/C, room gets hot. Lots of cockroach. Not safe location. Dont leave anything in your car.
