    Absolutely wonderful hostel. My first time since I’ve been travelling that I felt truly at home, relaxed and comfortable somewhere. Free use of the surf board and snorkel gear was great - so much free food for breakfasts or snacks. So clean too. I can not recommend enough!

    This is a great hostel! Clean and location is A+. They have free bikes and beach stuff to use. I used the bikes to get around Lahaina. Super convenient! If you are looking for a party hostel, then this hostel is not for you. No problems with noise at all at night. AC works perfectly in the rooms. I highly recommend this hostel.

    I had an amazing stay at Hakuna Matata! Friendly and generous owners - the kitchen is well stocked and often there is lots of food free for your use. Surfboards, paddle boards, snorkels etc all free too. Definitely a place to come and relax, if you feel like something more lively it is just a short walk to the restaurants, bars and stores (the beach too of course!). Great AC in the rooms which is a blessing after a day in the sun! Codes for each door so felt very safe.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. It was comfortable, quiet, and really felt like home. Mainly women there so it felt really safe for solo female travelers. The hosts were excellent. Really chill vibes. Everything was clean. Snorkeling gear, SUP, surf boards, and bikes were there to use for free. It was easy to store food in the fridge. The beach is right behind the hostel and was right along Front St. The neighborhood felt safe for walking at night. Overall, I'd stay here again.

    The location of the hostel is perfect. Near Lahaina center and the beach where surf lessons happen. The owners are also sweet, very helpful. The rooms are nice, beautiful, clean. There are only two bathrooms. It wasn’t a problem for me, as I never had to wait too long to use them, but it is worth noticing. The garden is a nice area, but is the only commom area in the hostel (except from the kitchen). It’s awsome that they have free surf boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, for you just to borrow!

    Very old building in need of renovating and an overhaul. More light needed in kitchen and a more effective ceiling fan/s needed there too. Hosts warm and welcoming, professional and attentive. Second bathroom extremely run down, mouldy and unhygienic. Great position, fair price.
