“This is a well-managed hostel with great staff”
Reviewed 1 April 2011

We stayed at the hostel for the first two nights and last four nights of an 18-day visit to Maui. Both times we were in a private room which had more than enough space for all our stuff, plus there is a secure storage room for bulky items like surf boards and bikes. The staff we encountered, Garrett, Scott and Mary, were extremely helpful and accommodating. Guest rooms, bathrooms (4), kitchen, and living room/reception area are all on the second floor, as is a long balcony, on which we and many spent the early morning and evening hours, enjoying the perfect weather. The staff runs a tight ship with a no-nonsense approach to house rules regarding noise, cleaning up after one's self, and security. There are regularly scheduled shuttles to and from the Kahului airport and lots of help for guests wishing to hook up with Maui activities. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Northshore Hostel.

Great overnighter, easy to reach by bus from airport, very friendly and accomodating staff, clean and comfortable room, relaxed atmosphere. This hotel was great for my stranded body which needed an overnight bed at last notice.

Very clean, nice central location with lots of free street parking. Really quiet, definitely not a party hostel.

We were very happy to have chosen this hostel for our 5-day stay on Maui. The hostel has a great positive athmosphere between guests and staff, is clean, quiet at night, and thus provided us with the best possible basis for enjoying our stay on Maui.

On Maui, you can not do much without a car, and the hostel is not close to any beach (but close enough for a one-day hike to Io valley, which we recommend to do). There were no cars available at any of the major car rentals, but the staff could help us finding what appears to be the last available car (a Jeep, also recommended for tours into the southeast of the island) on Maui. Generally, the staff got not tired of answering any question and try to help with any issue.

We also really liked the ecological spirit -- saving water, recycling etc. are practicized by the hostel and encouraged from the guests.

We would definitively like to come back to Maui, and if so, we would first try to book at NorthShore Hostel!

I truly enjoyed the moment I spent in Northshore Hostel. All the members of the staff were extremly friendly and supportive concerning questions and needs.
I enjoyed making friends and sharing the time on different trips with people from all over the world. I had a lot of fun and did not want to leave ...
