At Banana Bungalow Maui Hostel, we'll show you adventure, Maui-style. We run free tours every day, so stay seven days and do them all! One day might be whale watching, the next could be a Haleakalā Crater hike. Before we set off, you'll want to fill up on our free pancake breakfast. After an awesome day exploring, have a luxurious soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi before the party begins. Every Monday is happy hour, Fridays are keg parties and the rest of the week is for beers and barbecues in the garden!


We're here to help from the minute you step off the plane – yep, we're talking about a free airport shuttle! If you're arriving after 18:20 however, you'll need to catch the 35 or 40 bus to the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center, then take Wailuku Route 1 or 2 (about 45 minutes in total). Tell the driver you're staying at Banana Bungalow and they'll know where to let you off. Once you're here, the hostel is a 6-minute walk from the centre of town's Main Street. It's here that you'll get your daily latte fix and all those travel essentials you forgot to pack.

Rooms and Dorms

If you're travelling solo, we have mixed and female-only rooms. Both dorms and private rooms have free linen and plenty of quirky surfing décor thrown in. For no-queue washing, we have seven bathrooms – ten showers in total. If you didn't bring your own towel, head down to reception to rent one.

Extras and activities

If barbecue fare isn't your thing, you can cook your favourite dish in the communal kitchen. Tired-out surfers and hikers can usually be found on our outdoor terrace using the free Wi-Fi to upload their epic action shots. Need an evening to recover from beer pong? Gather a few people together for a movie night in the common room. We've got ping pong, darts and a pool table if you've still got energy to burn!

    I stayed 8 days with my GF and it was beyond fantastic! I’m 33yrs old and I haven’t stayed at a hostel for about 7yrs (wow, times a b#tch)... and the culture & community at Banana reminded me what was truly beautiful about hostel life. The vibe here is the true authentic gem, something rare that comes from excellent staff, guests, and tip top management. Facilities were SO CLEAN. And FREE TOURS!?! 🤯 Their backyard mango tree proves how sweet this hostel is, try one and taste the absorbed vibes!

    Banana Bungalow was the first hostel I ever stayed in, and I really think I will have a hard time finding a more memorable place to stay moving forward. I was incredibly worried about traveling solo, but all of those fears were gone within minutes of arriving here. The staff are all incredible! I wish I had not booked a single thing and just went on their tours the whole trip instead. I'll fondly remember my time here forever!

    Day tours are awesome, make sure you sign up for Saturday one, Billy was my guide and he is awesome. Location is not the best, but not bad, more laid back. Easy to get from the airport by bus. But not much to do around the area. You may end up using uber to get to places. Staff is awesone and the vibe at the hostel is great. Maui is not as hot as hot as Oahu, therefore AC is not needed. Fairly clean place, great kitchen and the nights in the common areas are super fun! I do recommend it

    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
