    Was in a very safe neighborhood! Although it was full of lots of people when I arrived at 11pm, it was still quiet and felt very safe. Right next to a church and a preschool, and saw at least one officer make a round late at night. A five minute walk to a bar open until 2am, a 1 min walk to a beautiful beach to lay on or swim in. A basketball court across the street, good food further down. Bicycles, surfboards, boogie boards to use for free during your stay. perfect place with warm water!

    Hakuna Matata was a great hostel in Lahaina. The location is unbeatable - steps from the beach with snorkels, surf boards, kayaks, etc. provided! I also appreciated the bikes (free), parking, and the $1.50/load coin laundry on site. Dominique, the host, greeted me and was really warm and friendly. My room was super clean, other guests were friendly, but quiet. I definitely plan to stay again. The only thing I'd change is that there aren't lockers for bags (just small lockers, maybe for a purse).

    Very Good

    I enjoyed the vibe of the hostel and got to know a few of my fellow hostel-goers, which was nice. I thought the bathrooms could use a little upgrade/cleaning and I saw a few cockroaches throughout the stay. Other than that, I really appreciated the amenities. And the location is AMAZING.

    HORRIBLE ANT PROBLEM. I got a private room and my clothes and bag were SWARMING with ants!!! Made me feel gross and uncomfortable. Other than this, bed was very comfortable. Cute decor. Warm showers. I’m not much of a complainer but the ants were gross and I didn’t have any food or drink in the room. STUNNING view from outside!!

    Hawaiian hostels are generally poor quality, so this is actually one of the better ones. I've rated it in comparison to hostels worldwide that I've stayed in. The hostel is really dark and old, only 2 bathrooms so there can be a wait. the aircon in the rooms was extremely loud. great location by the beach but parking is limited both at the hostel and in the area. Payment is taken automatically off the credit card you book with - which was fine, but was a surprise
