They keep this place pretty clean considering the amount of people coming and going all that time. The free tours are really a great add on. Quiet time after 10 is strictly enforced but bring ear plugs anyway. People are awake and moving around at all hours. If your staying in a dorm, a big suitcase will be hard to... More

The free tours are the best that this hostel has to offer. Everyday is a different one and you just tip the tour guide. The staff is really nice and friendly. I was traveling by myself and made friends in the first day. The bedrooms are hostels' standards (stayed on shared room), but there's no lockers on the room. If... More

I came with a friend and we both weren't sure about it at first because of the location. I got to admit, it's not the best location if you don't want to do the tours and want to be on your own without a car. The bus is really slow but it passes every 30 minutes!! Anyway's you have time,... More

I loved my stay at the Banana Bungalow. The staff is very friendly. After a few days, they will treat you more like friends than clients. Azi, the manager, will do everything she can to accommodate you and answers her emails in no time. They do overbook sometimes, but I feel it's just because they really want to accommodate everybody... More

I am absolutely in love with this hostel. My experience here was great, and over my expectations. The overall atmosphere and vibe is fabulous. The staff is surprisingly good for not being paid. The tours are definitely the five star of this place. They take you to amazing magical places, and you get to do it without the charter feeling... More

Was supposed to spend three nights but after the first, we cancelled the rest. Was not the cleanest establishment , staff were friendly but not the most informative on things to do in Maui. If you are looking to party this is the place to stay then.

It's not a party hostel as written in so many reviews. After 10pm it's quiet time. You cannstay in the common area and habe some drinks but you get reminded to be quiet when it's getting louder. As well they turn of the lights after a certain time. It's good to meet people they have a big common area and... More

Stayed two days. ...facilities are ok. ..parking is garbage but people seem happy with the tours offered. Worst was quiet time when it is obviously enforced by staff trying to sleep. ..people having a conversation are shushed like children and staff exaggerate by threatening the police are going to make them go to bed. If staff can't handle people trying... More

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I'm glad you enjoyed our atmosphere and accommodations. I'm sorry if you felt that staff was being rude when enforcing the rules of quiet time but unfortunately I also must applaud their efforts in keeping things quiet! Nobody enjoys having fun here more than our staff but we... More

I traveled by myself to this hostel and was welcomed in right away by the staff. The place was quiet when I got there, because everybody was out on one of the free tours the hostel offers. While the hostel itself is not in the best part of Maui, and is a ways from the beach, it is a destination... More

I stayed at this hostel many years ago and throughly enjoyed my time. Back then the town of Wailuku seemed a lot more shady but I am pleased to report that I felt very safe (Day and Night) in the town. The hostel itself has not changed all that much since my last visit except for the inclusion of the... More
