Great hostel for backpackers, this hostel has a very international feel. The rooms and bathrooms could be maintained a bit better, but they're clean and comfortable nonetheless. The staff is excellent, very friendly, welcoming and fun to hang out with. The best thing about BB are their daily tours to Maui's many different hidden treasures...hikes, waterfalls, beaches, sunset points. I... More

First off- there are FREE tours EVERY day to scenic Maui locations hosted by hostel staff. Given the hostel's somewhat isolated location, it's amazing and definitely worth taking advantage of. You don't even have to think. Definitely bring cash to tip the staff, as they're doing it "for free". Nick was so awesome :) It's more like a shack, but... More

The hostel itself is outdated and kitchen and bathrooms are not very clean and outdated as well. That's just the way it is. On the other hand though, if you are an outgoing, free spirited person, this is the place where you will have the time of your life. Very attended by backpackers and other "lost travelers", everybody there is... More

The stuff are friendly and nice. Every evening is a lovely atmosphere. It's a good place to make party. Further more you can play pool, ping pong, table soccer and dart. Unfortunately the restrooms are very dirty. There were ants in our beds..

Best hostel I've stayed at! Alot of fun and a great vibe. The free daily tours are a great way to see everything the island has to offer! The tour guides Zac & Nick are great guys and it's always a good time! All the staff are friendly and the hostel offers lots of perks! Highly Recommend!

I stayed at the Banana Bungalow for 8 days and completed all of the tours they offered. This was my first time travelling as a solo traveller in a hostel and it was an amazing experience. I opted for a women's only dorm and was able to get a room with one other female roommate. The staff at the hostel... More

I'm a resident on Oahu and took a trip to Maui with a friend for an extended weekend. The private double we stayed in was clean, except for termite droppings in the window sill. Bathrooms were cleaned daily and the best part were the tours that were offered daily! Staff is friendly and VERY helpful! To make a long story... More

We arrived and we were upgraded to a private dorm, which was awesome! Nice room. Showers nice and clean, until the stampede come through and make it a mess. Suggest there are more cleaning schedules through the day for this. Very far away from anything; no beach, no shops. Made us feel quite stuck. The tours were awesome and helped... More
