Fantastic location, almost beach front and a few blocks from Lahaina main street, shops, supermarket and everything else you need. Kimo, the brazilian guy, as not do the management as works as a concierge doing everything to make our stay most pleasure as he can. Definitly return.

The hostel is in a good location just off Front street behind a house, so especially in the night it is a bit hidden. You have to walk in the cul de sac pass the house located right on the street. The receptionist was very nice, showed us around and walked us to our room. The room was in the...

Enjoyed the people at this hostel. Staff was efficient and helpful. Place was welcoming with meeting different people everyday. Staff always cleaning. Asking if I needed anything. Coffee made everyday. Was easy to make my own meal if I chose to. Definitely will go back.

My advise would be to avoid this hostel like the plague. Booked in here because we were on a budget and was the cheapest place we could find that still had availability. There was a reason for that. Our bedroom was a glass house. Literally a glass house with 4 beds in it. It rained while we were there and...

This place is unconventional in the sense that there is no reception area and most of the staff work in exchange for board so everyone is very chill and things run on "Maui time". The hostel is spread over a few old houses. There are locks on all the front doors and the rooms, however the front doors were not...

Never stayed at a hostel before. Quite pleased with experience. Although my bed situation not what I expected - open air amongst the trees, with a mosquito net! was actually very pleasant. Only real negative was rap radio music playing til very late - well past midnight. Also blanket a bit insubstantial - but bedding was clean. There are rooms...

We stayed at the Tiki Beach hostel in Lahaina this past week and were not pleased with the accommodation. The kitchens and public spaces are clean but there were no staff to check us in or out, and we paid $80cad each for a simple bed in a freezing cold clubhouse. I would not recommend this hostel.

The service is very good specially the kindness of Mr Kimo . It has clean bathrooms. I slept in an outside room, at the yard that sometimes very noisy. There are at least 2 kitchens where averyone cooks and normally someone who loves cooking offer dinner every night.

I stayed here for four nights during my time in Maui. I was in a twin shared room, sharing with one other girl. We had air-conditioning that kept it cool and a room fan. We stayed in a house separate from the main hostel where the check in is, across the street. There are five other rooms in the house...
