    Dear Banana Bungalow, thank you for making my time in Maui a memorable one! The hostel became my family for that one week. The tours are worth it, you tip the driver and save lots of money, Maui is an expensive place to be at. Facilities are very good, staff ensure clean facilities sometimes the guest are just messy. The staff are welcoming and fun to socialise with. As a solo traveller Banana Bungalow is the place to be!

    I just can't get over Maui pricing, but other than that this place is fantastic. Still don't know how I am supposed to get my $10 cash deposit back for an early key return, though, and not sure how I am supposed to find out.

    what I like: they have tours everyday so you need book one days before for free, airport pick 3 times and 1 times from hostel to airport and they have big kitchen so easier to prepare meal, next door have Chinese Hawaiian mix restaurant for quick grab foods, 2 min from bus stop, staff very helpful dislike: I miss my dinner because close 10 pm lol I wish they open 24 hours, Old town not much to see I think you need car possible move easier and maybe they need management 2 fridge look tidy

    If you are looking for people to meet, drinking, parties, tours around the island, Banana Bungalow is a great place. If you prefer a chill atmosphere, sparkling clean rooms with AC and lockers, located in a safe area, it’s probably not. I stayed for a total of 6 nights, cause it’s a good enough deal, even if you are not up for partying. Bathrooms are cleaned daily (could be twice, but it’s alright) and the staff is very friendly.
