    This was my first hostel experience and I couldn’t have been happier with it. The environment is super welcoming and everyone that works/stays there is great. The cats are also amazing.

    The place is a bit far from everything on the island but it’s a great place if you have a rental car. If not; they have daily tours which I heard from fellow guests are rad. The staff was chill and the facilities were surprisingly clean. Have fun

    One of the best experiences I’ve had with a hostel! Jack and Billy give the best tours, and they have one scheduled every day which only requires tipping (~$10-20). They know their information and make it extremely fun. I met some of the most amazing travelers here, and I loved being able to hang out with them on the tours and in the common area. Even though it’s called a “party hostel”, not everyone drinks and it’s still a great time. Banana attracts outgoing people! Would come back again!

    My first time at a hostel and it was a very enjoyable experience. I very much liked the environment and the conversation, plus the planned activities. I see myself visiting mor hostels in the future. Thanks Banana Bungalow for a good time.

    This hostel is great for people who want to socialize and for those who want to explore Maui and don’t have a car. This hostel offers tours everyday in Maui which is great! There aren’t a lot of showers and bathrooms but it wasn’t really a problem. The only thing that bothered is that the kitchen closes at 10 PM and opens around 8 AM. We wanted to leave before sunrise sometimes and it was a bit of an organization challenge. Oh and there are no recycling bin.. my eco friendly heart was aching!!!

    Very Good

    Supposedly being a party hostel, the atmosphere was great and I had loads of fun on my week-long stay. Staff and tours were amazing, the neighborhood is critical, though. Could use some improvements regarding their dorms (no locker, no A/C). Would still come back just because of the great people.

    Parking is sketchy. Location is fair. They offer fun Maui activities every day. Great place for solo travellers / backpackers who are looking for Maui activities and meet other similar minded folks. Facilities are old. Staff was friendly. Rooms were extremely hot. Its a good place to stay if you've just landed, especially since its very close to the airport. Lots of Mom&Pop places to eat in the area. I would return if solo and looking to meet Canadians and Germans.

    Staff are pretty good, pretty far away from most attractions but the tours make up for it.
