Nobody to check in, no locker at the external door/window, DISGUSTING bathroom, cash only, DISGUSTING ODOR in the fridge, tiny bedroom with bugs, no wifi, tiny bed not prepared... Even if we booked the room online months ago. Price changed from the 100$ of the online réservation, then 120$ on the phone with the manager and we finally paid 60$... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for a week in May and really enjoyed it. The staff were great. The location was great. There was a BBQ that was free. The staff and other guests were all great and fun to hang out with and have a few beers. I will definitely stay here again.

Staff was very helpful and friendly, near stores, shops, beach, yoga, bars. Everything within walking distance. Cleanest hostel I've stayed in, comfortable sleeping arrangements, and quiet times enforced, making it easy to rest. Only open to travelers, which makes it easier to feel safe leaving belongings behind. Very understanding and reasonable

Close to world class wind/kite surfing beaches of Ho'okipa and Kanaha, this funky little place is a gem. Fun staff and international travelers make this place not only a great destination for wind surfers, but weekly BBQs and movie night are a hoot. Proximity to Hana and Haleakala volcano are second to none on Maui! I highly recommend this hostel... More

It was so great to have so many wonderful people from all over the world coming together to share meals from their home countries and love! It like like a big Ohana even though we had all just met. The lady working there... More

My family stayed at the Rainbow Surf Hostel for a month when we first moved to Maui. It is very difficult to find family-friendly hostels in Hawaii, so RSH was a life-saver. The manager Terry was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and even brought a toy box and kids movies for my son to enjoy during our stay. There is a... More

I've read some bad reviews on this place and started out a little nervous coming here. Upon arriving we met Tanya and I knew immediately it would be a good experience. We had a private room which had private access to a patio that was really nice to just veg out on in the evening and visit with the other... More
