The free daily tours makes this somewhat isolated hostel a truly nice place to stay on Maui. That being said, the neighborhood that Banana Bungalow Maui hostel is in is rather seedy and somewhat dangerous (don't walk around the neighborhood alone at night).
I've stayed at this hostel many times. Unfortunately, during my last two visits, there was such a problem with flies that I found it difficult to eat (or to read a book) in peace.
