    My first time staying at a hostel and it was sooooo cool! My wife and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at a resort for 6 days, since we wanted to stay an extra night we booked the hostel and it did not disappoint! We will definitely be staying here again.

    My stay was great. This facility has all the amenities to make one comfortable. They offer breakfast pancakes. Aside from that, if you want to cook for yourself, they have a very beautiful kitchen with fridges to store food. There are cleaners who come in everyday to clean, so even though this is a hostel, it is kept quite clean. There is an atmosphere of friendliness. When coming here bring slippers to wear around and if possible sheets also. The tours were excellent!!!

    Banana Bungalow has the most incredible, friendly and accepting atmosphere I could’ve ever wanted. Every day I spent here exceeded what I had experienced the day prior. Spending time in the common area and socializing, enjoying the amazing daily tours, and meeting wonderful people had me wishing I could’ve extended my stay. If you're going to stay in Maui, come travel solo. Banana Bungalow will accept you with open arms and you'll fall in love so long as you approach with an open mind.

    It is my first time in hostel, I really like the concept and all to tours that they have are amazing. The stuff is not part of the guests and you feel lonely. Its different from the description of hostels. At 10pm the kitchen is close and all our staff is locked, so we can not eat or drink. The workers very angry on the guests instead explain to be quiet at 10pm. In there website I didn't see nothing about that role.

    Not a great experience. Booked a private room which was like a jail cell. About 95 degrees at midnight, room was by a main road so open windows was not an option. Beds were as bad as I’ve ever slept on. After one night we asked for a refund which the very nice manager said we would be getting, we were then given proof of the refund but no refund was ever processed and it’s not been almost a month. I’ve stayed in a dozen or so hotels around the world and this one was by far the worst.

    This was by far the worst hostel experience I've had. The hostel is "open-aired" meaning if you are on the street at night you can see into the hallway and lobby area. I was in the lobby with another girl around 5am and someone from the street could see inside and started to talk to us asking to "show us our tits" and "let him in". I did not return the next night due to the safety concerns. The bathrooms were disgusting and the hostel closed due to COVID concerns in the middle of my trip.
