The hostel had great hosts, Jen and Scot were very friendly and helpful. The travelers are mostly young international people with the exception of us (old Americans). The hostel is very safe and centrally located. There is a camera system set up inside, so even "stolen" beer is detected...lol The sheets and towels are clean, breezy rooms, paddle fans, no... More

This is an excellent hostel to stay for $29 a night. Clean and upbeat environment. Quiet hours are between 10pm and 7am so there is time to sleep. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it is still a hostel and not a 5 star hotel. I enjoyed the low key location which had a... More

Hello, we really liked this plce so we cam spontaneously back. At both visits we had different private rooms. Both were really clean, also each of the 4 bathrooms. Staff is really helpful and relaxed....2 thumbs up! Had a great time there and no need to complain. Of course it's a hostel and not a hotel. Keep that in mind... More

The northshore hostel is nice. Everything is clean. You can choose between 4 bathrooms. The hostel is not to big and the stuff is really nice. But the location is not good. You need a car. The beach is far away. There is nothing to do around the hostel. And if you decide to rent a car, book it at... More

This place is awesome. Their staff is super friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are having a great stay. Full of useful information about not only the area, but all of Maui. Excellent security (while not being over-bearing), comfortable and relativity spacious dorm rooms. Four private washrooms, you can use the printer for free, and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's cheap, staff are friendly, kitchen was clean and with a lot of utensils. It is not a party hostel like banana bungalow, coming from there it was nice and quiet with a good atmosphere and nice people!

This hostel is a choice I do not regret. Located in Wailuku, it is a central area to all other cities you want to explore. It's a 10-15 minutes car ride from the airport, and 30-40 minutes to Lahaina or Kihei. The room and dorm prices are very reasonable letting you place money elsewhere (like a car rental to explore...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was perfect for our needs. We had a basic private room with air con, a little small but it appeared you could get a bigger room for more $. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The free pancakes idea was great. There was a cosy common room with... More

It was our first time to stay in a hostel so we weren't expecting much. When we arrived we were glad to see how clean and orderly it was! Reminded me of a dorm actually hehe. We got the quad room that was next to the common bathroom. Can't expect much from the beds and linens but they were good... More

Dear Christian, we're sorry you didn't understand about quiet hours - not SILENT hours. We explain this at check-in to each guest. You may of course still talk, but we ask that you do so quietly as others are trying to sleep. Often people may not realize they are being loud or disruptive. We do our best to keep ALL... More
