I've stayed in a number of hostels around US and Europe, and this one rates at top. Well managed, friendly, clean. Access to discounted adventures. Close to bus line for easy access to island. Free pancakes a plus ;)

Thanks for writing a review. Yes we do enforce quiet hours here. We do our best to accommodate all of our guests needs in a small environment. And yes it's great to have a car, but not absolutely necessary. We have a good bus system and there are a few local restaurants and shops nearby. Thanks for staying with us!

Everything was okay, restrooms were very clean which was nice. My only complaint is about the beds. The mattresses were uncomfortable (all of us in the room complained about back pains) and the bunk bed was very very loud and shaky. Especially the last part would be easy to fix and seems unnecessary.

Dear Lena, sorry that you felt your mattress was inadequate. We regularly replace our mattresses but everyone has a different preference in mattress type. Thanks for your feedback and for staying with us!

What I really appreciated about this hostel was how clean and well organized it was. There was a very positive atmosphere set by the owner, who was really nice, and it's obvious that he treats his staff well-- and they treat the visitors well, too. This has got to be the best deal on Maui. If you want to stay...

Pro: clean, quite, non-smoking/non-party Con: internet's on and off most of the time (no very reliable), don't know if that is the purpose for folks going to coffee shop (1 block down on market) for the coffee shop internet wifi's. If the internet was stable, it would great for guests to enjoy the stay inside the hostel in the evening...

Thank you for writing. I apologize about the internet during your stay, we have since dropped our DSL service as it was unreliable...we were experiencing the same trouble in the office as well, which was equally frustrating. We finally have it 'dialed in'. Mahalo for staying with us and we regret your dissatisfaction with the internet during your stay.

I stayed here with a friend back in early November for 2 nights. This was one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in. The rooms and bathrooms especially were spotless. There is a nice place to hang out in. Nice kitchen area. The staff was super friendly. There were a lot of helpful brochures and information about local restaurants,...

It's no Four Seasons, but on a budget, it's great :) It's a very clean hostel...it feels like you are staying with friends. And you can't beat the price. They do have at least one room that is for couples, or if you are an adventurer, the have single sex dorm rooms.
