Kimo and the staff do everything possible to make you feel like family. aloha and the woman living here are extremely gorgeous. Drinking beer and passing out anywhere in the house is definately encouraged! It"s a definate care free spirit here!

I stayed here on the first night of my trip. It was hard to find in the dark (after you pass 505 Front Street on the left, go left down the next road with some houses and it's on the right), I called Kimo and he came out to find me...very nice. I stayed in the front bunk room (was... More

I’ll give an unbiased opinion. I am a solo traveller, at times I travel with friends, at times for business; I love my 5 star resorts with all the trimmings, as well as well organised hostels. The Tiki Hale hostel is essentially a house, with a kitchen and living room and a back yard. The house is laidback, you can... More

Location is perfect with only 30 meters to the beach and Lahaina breakwall surf spot. Hostel is rather small and atmosphere is really warm and cozy and felt at least for me more like a family than just a hostel. All the facilities are very good and the backyard is amazingly cozy with everything you need from jungle-like feeling with... More

i know i know... $55 for a dorm bed is a lot of money for us backpackers. but seriously, it is absolutely WORTH IT! the tiki hale is the best place to stay on Maui. the beach is literally 1 minute away, you can rent surf gear, snorkeling gear and beach towels for free at the hostel. if you are...

They have an outside shower which i used every chance i had. There were only 4 beds to the girls room so it wasnt... More

The place is scary. It's a total bummer. I didn't feel safe. The actions and behavior of the staff and Manager made things even worse. It was creeepy. This was possibly the wierdest hostel I have ever stayed at - not a good wierd. I had planned to stay longer but I left as soon as I could. I was... More

Stayed in hundreds of hostels all over the world and I can easily say Tiki Hale is by far my favorite hostel the world over. It's clean, right on the beach, has a GREAT staff (Chris is an amazing host) that creates a very social atmosphere. I can't wait until my next visit.
