“Worked at the Last Resort for almost a year .....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

My name is michael , i lived and worked at the last resort for almost the last year and have since moved to another side of the island ,Still involved in the tourism industry .
I wanted to say , that it was an incredible experience working for the the family , Sherry and Tianna they take pain staking care to make sure that people that visit Maui Lahaina i n particular have a great time . ...The owner Sherry dedicates herself literally 24 hours a day to making sure the property is in its best possible condition and the guests are happy and well informed about all the island has to offer .
I enjoyed meeting all of the international travelers from every walk of life ....... if you want to hang with other travelers (as opposed to tourist ) check out lahainas last resort

Room Tip: the dorm is an experiance not to be missed ,, if you are going to drop your bags and explore it is...

Stayed here while in Maui for a wedding, considering the price difference from the resort strip in Kaanapali to here, I'd pick here any day. Very helpful staff, never short of a conversation. Highly recommended if your on a budget and don't mind backpacking.

I lived in the hostel style rooms with 5 other roommates that I did not know. They all turned out to be great people and the staff was also great. The hostel is in a fabulous location and I was able to walk everywhere. The rooms were very clean and I had a great stay. Hope to be back soon!

As i turned the corner of Lahainaluna St. into The Lahaina's Last Resort Hostel . There stood a man by the name of Micheal Sean . Little did I know what was in store for us ? This guy knew everything about the island. Had the best Hostel prices on the island . Clean rooms , great people from all over the world? You have lockers for your stuff , blocks away from such historic sights such as Cheeseburger n Paradise , Infamous Front St. , all the shops. Micheal is a very talented individual , who paints (art for sale) and Runs the Hostels. You can get all your activities signed up right there too... Please check this Hostel out if you are looking for a positive , friendly time , Aloha style....

My wife and I stayed at Lahaina's Last Resort for 15 nights, and will definitely spend some time here again when we come back to Maui!

The staff and guests at Lahaina's Last Resort were what really made the trip. Mike and Greg run a visitor information/activity desk from the same building as the hostel and can book just about any activity you can think of. They also go on hiking, camping and partying excursions with the guests staying at the hostel, and are great guides and company. We met other travelers from all over the world (Germany, Alaska, the continental US, Ireland, China, etc.) as well, and were never short of things to do or people to hang out with. The spectrum of activities ranges from things you'd put on a postcard to your grandparents to things that "Stay In Maui". For the latter, be sure to check out Little Beach on Sunday!

The Location: Only 2 blocks off of Front Street and the beach, a block from foodland, and a block from some great (and surprisingly cheap) restaurants. Check out the breakfast at No. 1 Barbecue for $3.75, and the Lahaina Cafe for some of the best (and cheapest) food in Lahaina until 4:00am. Snorkeling or shore diving at Mala Ramp is only a few blocks away. You can catch a bus at the Wharf which goes all over the island for $2/day. Parking at the hostel is free if you have a rental car.

The Facilities: Although nothing exciting, at $70/night you can't go wrong. Clean, comfortable and safe accommodations. We stayed in the "Rainbow Room", which is brightly painted and has A/C, a microwave, mini-fridge, and a sliding door leading to a deck. The deck is in a blind alley between the building and the sound wall on the side of route 30. Not much of a view, but it's a nice place to sit and there's some patio furniture and a charcoal barbecue available. The mattress had seen better days, but linens were clean and fresh (and were replaced once for us during our stay, which was an unexpected bonus in a hostel!). There were absolutely NO issues with bedbugs. There were some small ants that made their way into the room, but didn't appear to bite. The shared bathrooms were in good repair, with 2 stalls, 2 sinks, 2 showers and working hot water. There's also free wifi, and a full-size communal fridge by the activities desk.

Sleep: We had a lot of late nights, some of which took place at the hostel. If you're really counting on that 9:00pm quiet time, you may want to look elsewhere. Usually if anything is happening after around 11:00 it'll be quiet, away from the hostel or everyone will be involved. We never felt like anything (other than a bad sunburn) interfered with getting a good night's sleep when we wanted it.
