Overall, it's a bit dirty and a lot loud with the constant TV playing. The staff is unhelpful and just refers you to a brochure or Lonely Planet if you ask any questions about Maui sightseeing. Really doesn't seem the staff cares about the guests or trying to be even a little helpful. Definitely not the usual friendly vibe of... More

This hostel is one of the best I've ever been. It looks more like a big home than actually a hostel. Very clean and very nicely decorated. Janine, the receptionist is very nice and helpful. After 10pm all the hostel becomes very quiet. There are rules for each and everything but everyone seems to follow then which is quite nice.... More

Scott was very friendly, he helped us whenever we needed. The place has a parking lot which was good for us. The whole hostel is clean and friendly. You can use their phone and computer for free (even for internatinal calls.) You are free to make pancakes in the morning, or coffee.

Truly one of the best places I have ever stayed for the price. All the staff were exceptional. It is well ran, clean and secure. Scott's sense of humor and his dedication to making everyone's stay as safe and fun as possible was great. I stayed 10 days at Northshore and my only regret was not staying longer. I felt... More

Staff member Scott welcomed us and gave an initial orientation tour of hostel procedures. We felt at home immediately. The hostel has a well equiped Kitchen ( with free panackes for breakfast !). There are 4 shared bathrooms but there never seemed to be a long wait time. The rooms were plain but clean and the beds comfortable. As an... More

Nice location and plenty of parking in the lot across the street. Clean and neat and affordable. It's on the 2nd floor so be prepared to hull your luggage up the front entrance. Door is secured and not on the street side. You get a personal tour and the employee pointed to the numerous security cameras. The kitchen can get... More

Northshore Hostel sits above Main Street in Wailuku (central Maui) and has the entrance behind the building, down the short alley and has a door code for access. A good sized parking lot is across the street, great if you've rented a car (a must for Maui!). Much like Hawaiian culture, the staff is laid back and friendly. The rooms... More

This has been a life changing experience for me and I owe much of it to the Northshore Hostel here in Maui. Scott and the staff are awesome, the atmosphere and amenities are great, and got to meet so many amazing people. Can't recommend this place enough.

Northshore hostel was great! We met a lot of people and made many friends. The staff is very helpful and the place is always kept clean. Wailuku is an ok place but to get to the great places you either need a car, a Vespa or ride the bus. I will return whenever I come back to maui 😁 Mahalo!

I stayed at the Northshore Hostel in Wailuku for about 28 days and I had a great experience. So many people went through the dorm rooms while I stayed there. Scott and Janine went out of their way to hear us and do whatever was in their power for us to have a good experience in Maui and at the... More
