“Clean and 'boutique' hostel in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights and would be our favorite place on our trip. The fundamentals are the great location, clean, tidy, decent beds, a/c rooms. But beyond that the facilities provided us with surfboards (I met other backpackers in the reef that were hiring at 20 p/hr), snorkels, outdoor shower, small and cozy, and Kevin the owner really took the time to tell us the ins and outs of Maui. I'm pretty sure maui wouldn't have been the same had we stayed elsewhere.

The beach is litteraly next door, nice little palces to eat are a short walk away. I loved the outdoor shower and bathroom. You can shower under the stars! Beat that!!!!! The little back garden is so cozy and definitely tiki :) Very safe, cool people stayed there. The owner is the nicest ever and took the time to tell me the cool local things to do in the area. It was my first night in Hawaii. Just loved it!

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms so ... not an issue :)

It was ideal location, great value for budget travelers. Room was clean, all staff were very friendly and knowledgefull of the island. Surf spot is just minute away and all restaurants and shops are right there! I definitely come back again! Thank you Kevin!

I have only stayed at a handful of hostels but The Tiki Hale was a great experience. It used to be a duplex and the configuration is really cool. It has a full kitchen and Kevin - the manager,makes waffles on Wednesday for the guests. The tiki garden is not quite Shangri La but its a great way to congregate with other guests in a nice setting. You can't ask for a better location with having the beach not even 60 steps away. The place does tours to different parts of the island and Kevin and staff are always thinking of how to make things fun for the guests. If you are going to Maui, you should really stay here.
