I stayed at this hotel for one night while waiting to catch an early flight out the next morning. I was impressed that they offer a free airport pickup and dropoff to all guests - this saves expensive taxi fare, or at the very least saves a ride on the island bus. I arrived to find clean, welcoming dorm rooms...

Thank you for your nice review. We strive to be the best value on Maui, not just the best hostel. As for age restrictions, we welcome travelers of all ages but we can't accommodate those 6 years and under, and we do enforce our 'travelers only' status. Occasionally folk do use us as a base when moving to Maui...under special...

There is a washer and dryer available and free pancakes in the morning, a nice common room and a porch. The hostel has only shared bathrooms, but...

This time when the conference came back to Maui, I stayed at the hostel to experience the real island. I met wonderful friends, my dormmates, who knew far more about the island than I did and were fantastic to...
