    What tour do you do now since the I'ao state park is closed? Do you do the Haleakala tour? Is it easy to secure a spot for tours? Is it worth it to rent a car if we want to try to do all the tours? Thank you!

    I have a few questions. 1. When researching the area I'm seeing a lot of information that says the area the hostel is in is full of drugs and theft. Can anyone elaborate on this? Is this a safe area for a solo female traveler? 2.how are the bathrooms/showers that go with the private rooms? I couldn't find photos of them anywhere. 3. I see a lot of previous guests mention waking up with bug bits?

    There is ac in some private rooms but not all. It is warm during the day but stays cool at night. If you would like a room with a/c you may make the request when making your reservation request! Hope to host you soon! Aloha!
