i know i know... $55 for a dorm bed is a lot of money for us backpackers.
but seriously, it is absolutely WORTH IT!
the tiki hale is the best place to stay on Maui. the beach is literally 1 minute away, you can rent surf gear, snorkeling gear and beach towels for free at the hostel.
if you are looking for a spot to have a nice and chilled vacation, i can highly recommend the tiki hale. the beach offers good beginner-surfing terrain, a beachvolleyball court and amazing sunsets. the backyard of the hostel makes you feel you are staying close to the jungle. nice patio, hammock, bbq, palm trees and an outdoor shower (very cool).
the staff is very helpful and happy to help you with any questions you might have. came here by myself and met people from all over the world to organize trips on the island together.
in the evenings the whole hostel cooked together a couple of times. made me feel like being part of a big family... and again, the beach is so close, unreal! if you fancy heading into town, it is less than a 10minute walk to the centre of lahaina.More
