  • The Bungalow is the place to be! I had an amazing time stayin there. Of all the hostels I went to while travelling, this one has by far the nicest atmosphere. Staff is just AMAZING, really friendly and always ready to party with you.They really care about you and will do everything to make sure you're having a great stay. I litterally felt like I was part of the family. The hostel isnt brand new, but always clean ! Pancake breakfast is nice, you can make friends while cooking.ILOVEDMY EXPERIENCE

  • Great stay! Clean facilities and rooms. People definitely need to learn how to pick up after themselves but staff seems to be always close by to pick up the mess. A little pricey but the tours and the fun you have make up for it! Will definitely be back next time I'm in Maui.

  • This place is insanely over priced for what it is. There are only 3 bathrooms with showers to use for everyone unless in a private room, there was no security because all doors were unlocked at all times even when the front desk was closed. There were spiders outside everywhere in the kitchen area and hangout area. The party scene is crazy here so unless you're into that...this place is not for you.

    Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave feedback! We actually have 7 bathrooms, 6 of which are private bathrooms (meaning you are alone with a toilet and shower). Four of those are located upstairs, but they are open to everyone to use and not just for private rooms! We try to make this clear when we give guests a tour upon checking in but I'm sorry this was not well communicated to you! We lock all our doors at 11 PM when reception closes. We do like our guests to have fun and encourage a social atmosphere. We enforce quiet hours at 10 PM but still allow people to hang out provided they are respectful and quiet. However, it is a fun atmosphere so if one is looking for quiet and solitude, perhaps you are right this would not be the best environment. Safe travels on the rest of your adventures!

  • Very expencive hostel, few bathrooms so they were always occupied at mornings and evenings. Not hot water in all the showers. Don't know why but cops were very often at the hostel. Pancake breakfast was a joke, just a bag of pancake mix.

  • The staff were not very helpful, they were barely at the front desk and didn't really know anything when we asked. The kitchen was really gross and dirty It wasn't really close to anything but it was kind of central which was good Really really expensive and you'd only start to make your money back if you did a tour every day Definitely would not go back to this hostel

  • The kicker was great and it's cool that you offer trips. Cleanliness of kitchen, benches and bathroom was really gross, sorry. to say. Would be acceptable if rate was lower.

  • There isn't going to be a Hostel that is better value for the money. They have daily tours that make even those without a car able to get around the island. The atmosphere is great, it would be hard to not meet someone that wants to go travel around the island with you. Even though the location isn't really in a prime spot it is centrally located on the island making it about the same amount of time to get anywhere. In addition, the water was always hot and the showers were always clean.
