Its not the team - its the clientel that leave the kittchen (and bath) just dirty. The young guests just donkt know how to clean up their own mess... We had a double room for nearly 100 US$, quite expensive, but normal for Maui, as we found out. Not a cheap island to stay. We loves to make our own... More

This place is really great for quite a few reasons: 1. The free tours are really good. I thought since they were free they might be done very poorly, but they are commercial quality if not better, and cost nothing! 2. The staff is so great here. They are so nice and accommodating and will always make sure you're enjoying... More

I decided to travel solo to Hawaii for one week. I stayed at Banana Bungalow, a friend recommended it. The free tours sold it for me initially, as I thought I could save money on a rental car. After the first day however, I realized there was so much of Maui I wanted to see that the tours don't do.... More

Pros: -Maui is otherwise expensive, this is a great way to save some $ if you can handle hostel-life. This is a HOSTEL. Not a hotel. -If you want to see everything that Maui has to offer, the tours they provide will cover it all. You will not miss out on anything. Another great $ saver. -Centrally located. If you...

The hostel is not obviously a 5star hotel, but it's clean and nice. They give you free coffe and pancakes for breakfast and you have the choice to go with them on free tours that'll show the most amazing places on the island. The rooms are nice and clean. The bathrooms are too small, but clean. The staff is absolutely... More

As we got off the shuttle from the airport, our driver told us we may want to move as we were in a bad area, we are so glad we didn't though! The hostel has daily tours which are free, tips to the driver are suggested. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were in a 6 bed dorm which... More

We were upgraded to a private room, which as a happy surprise. The hostel itself shows its age and felt a bit run down. But the beds seemed clean and while the bathrooms were wet all the time I think they were cleaned regularly. There are free make your own pancakes in the morning which was a nice treat, although...

We stayed at the bungalow in February 2014 and had such a great time!! We are a couple in our 30's and really enjoyed the fun atmosphere of this place. We stayed for 5 nights in a private room. Here is the real deal on this place: GOOD: Tours were great, sometimes there is a waiting list but all times... More

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at and the main reason was the free tours included with your stay. The tour guides were really friendly and fun and the tours were very well-organized. If you are looking to go to Maui and have the tours organized for you, this is the place for you. The... More

With daily free tours(just need to tip) a hot tub, free pancake brekky, a good stocked kitchen, can be a bit small with everyone in there, and a very relaxed attitude, this is a great place to stay. I did not find the mattress in the dorm bed too comfy. Rules on quiet time are strictly adhered to which is... More
