This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. In terms of amenities, there's nothing really special about it. The rooms are pretty basic, however, it has good WI-FI, a laundry room, and fully stocked kitchen. That said, what really sets it apart is the staff. Keep in mind, this is sort of a party hostel, so if...

Mediocre hostel. Cheap but ghetto. Drug friendly and socially thriving for promiscuous activity. If thats your scene, then this is your kind of place! Pros: -group excursions available (if u make the list) -both private & shared bathrooms available -hot tub & pool table amenities -cheap nightly rates for the island Cons: -location is bad (like really bad.

The first cool thing is that you are in Maui but the most amazing part of it is how you are gonna feel comfortable with everyone there! You get to experience the island with people from all over the world and share amazing stories and adventures! I love that place is just like a "little" BIG family! It's perfect for...

The Hostel is quite good. Because it is small you get to know the people and they offer daily tours for a good price. But the rooms and bathrooms are not all up to date. It is a question if luck which room you will get.

Very disappointing experience; rooms are very small and cramps 4 people in minimal space. Very unprofessional, careless staff. Communal toilet /bathroomfacilities are in bad shape and barely function. And the place enforces a kitchen curfew until 8 am - making it difficult to plan any early activities. Free tours are often cancelled.

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...

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...

The hostel itself is outdated and kitchen and bathrooms are not very clean and outdated as well.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...

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!
