We spent 6 nights at the Banana Bungalow. If you don't plan to rent a car in maui, we can recomend you to stay at this hostel. It has free tours (tips for the guide are appreciated) that bring you to many nice places on the island! The rooms, the shower and the kitchen are not extremly clean, but its... More

There's not much in the surrounding area but the hostel tours make up for it. There are different tours each day and all they are all free. You should tip but still significantly cheaper than other yours and you get to do it with other people in the hostel so it's a great way to meet people! The hostel is... More

BB is a great place to stay in Maui. One of the better hostels in central Maui. The accommodations are average but the staff is fantastic. From the scheduled tours everyday to the Friday night keg party, there is always something to do. The hot tub was a welcomed relief from the 'stress' of the Hawaiian life style.

We stayed in a private room that was very small and unfortunately facing the hostel backyard, which also happens to be the party/drinking place, so of course we had problems to sleep. There wasn't many bathrooms for the amount of people staying there either, so you usually had to wait for a while and when finally your turn arrived, you... More

Enough has been written here, so I'll keep it short. If you want something close to the beach, do not stay here. If you want to make friends, experience awesome moments on the island and generally enjoy being around friendly people, then this is your place. Granted, without the free tours this would get a 3 star rating from me,... More

I had a really good time here in May 2013, met loads of nice people and enjoyed the free tours. The rooms and facilities are decent (it is an hostel not a 5 star hotel so don't expect luxury level!). I would recommend this for young travellers who are looking for a good time!

If I'm honest I was a little worried about staying in a hostel again (my backpacking days were 15 years ago and I aint a 20-something anymore!!) but this place is AMAZING ! It's so lovely and cute - there's not too many rooms so there's a real home-from-home feeling and everyone is so friendly. The outdoor area is perfect... More
