The Aloha Surf Hostel is the best hostel I've ever stayed at! It felt a bit like family. The facilities are good, the decoration is cool and there are a lot of really nice travelers. But the best are the free tours - perfect guide and routes. It's located in paia which is an lovely village.

This hostel had perfect location! It was right down the street from the beach, the small town, the location to catch a bus up to the mountain for a sunrise bike ride, and just basically close to everything! Although I didn't use it, the hostel had free trips every day all around the island. All of the staff were super... More

The staff here are incredible, super helpful and happy people. The hostel is constantly being cleaned and the private bathrooms were great. The outdoor area for hanging out is also an amazing communal area. This hostel is... More

She could see I was exhausted & suggested I settle in & when I was ready they would explain how everything worked. When I surfaced another staff member asked if I was new arrival then proceeded to show me bathrooms/kitchen/in... More

Paia was one of my favorite reas in Maui and the Aloha Surf Hostel was the perfect place to stay there. Great environment, nice and clean rooms, friendly staff, plenty of neat shops and restaurants nearby, and the bus stop was just a few block away. Would def stay again!
