Feels like coming home after a long day of traveling we had a great time coming back. The staff was friendly and had great tips for traveling. The atmosphere is peaceful and welcoming. We had a great time and will recommend this hostel for everyone.

This place is clean, large, and has strictly enforced rules. At first I was not a fan of the rules, however, it keeps out riff-raff and ensures that everyone is respectful of each other and the hostel itself. I will be back!

Friendly and laidback atmosphere, located in a suburban area so it doesn't feel too touristic, met some great people at the hostel. If I visit Maui again, I would definitely consider coming back at the Northshore Hostel Maui!

I stayed here for 5 nights in July and loved it. I had rented a car and it was super easy to find a parking spot across the road, the staff were very friendly and the hostel had a really relaxed vibe about it which was nice. They had lots of information on things to do in Maui and were... More

I agree that this hostel is a great budget hotel. The rooms and common areas are clean. However the location is not so great if you don't have a car. I think the ratio of bathrooms to people needs to improve, but it wasn't a terribly long wait to use the facilities.

Clean, not the best location for exploring Maui without a car but definitely good value compared to most other accommodation if you're on a budget. Booked in a private double room which was right next to the balcony so not the quietest of rooms. May have enjoyed it more if we weren't in that particular room.

Really liked this hostel! It was very well organized, very save and clean! The staff gave us great advice for our trip and I met some great people! It is a must to do the Road to Hana, ask the staff for the hotspots.

Clean, accommodating, close to shops and restaurants, free daily tours (including Road to Hana)....what more can you ask for? I'm so happy I booked my Maui stay in Paia at this awesome, amazing hostel. Thank you North Shore Hostel!

The staff was terribly, terribly unpleasant. Also, the location of this hostel is terribly inconvenient (although they do offer tours). After just spending time at a hostel on Oahu, I was shocked by how different this experience was. The common room is way too small, and always in use by the guests who have been staying for quite a while,... More

Dear Katbouro... Yes indeed unfortunate...most of our guests enjoy our terribly, terribly unpleasant staff and terribly inconvenient location, we're sorry you were shocked by this experience. We are in the process of enlarging our common room so that you can squeeze in and join and not feel guilty. And we DO NOT OFFER tours so I'm not sure what you... More
