“This is a welcoming and comfortable place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2011

The folks at Northshore Hostel are, in a word, fantastic! They keep the place in tip-top shape (they even shampooed the carpets while I was there!). There is nothing ritzy, but everything is kept clean and orderly (especially the bathrooms). They actually observe a 10 p.m. quiet time, which makes nights restful for all. There are numerous condiments and even breakfast-fixin's in the kitchen for everyone's use. I think it is a testimony to the quality of the environment that the community is roughly half under-forty and half over-forty. It's a place where anyone can feel at home. If/when I return to Maui, I won't even look for a new place. I think Northshore is about as good as it gets!

I have traveled through over 50 countries with only a backpack and have to say that this hostel is among the most well-run I have visited. Thanks Garrett, Mary and staff - well done!

I drank alot of coffee...they had to constanly refill the cream and sugar and they always did it with a smile. I burned dinner once and they - the staff - just coughed lightly and joked about turning on the fan! I love them all!

Room Tip: Call early

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.
