we book room with private bath but it was a room and bath in that small room
Saggy bed, stained sheets, roosters next door, very loud Asian restaurant below, my window had no curtain so people could look into my room, they put stuff against the walls to cover up holes and stains, everything was really scummy looking and very different than online photos. It wasn't worth the $100 for the night and it is also in a sketchy area of town so wandering around at night is limited. I've stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and for a 1st world country this is one of the worst places I've stayed in. I'm not a picky person but this place just felt gross. Feel free to see for yourself though and create your own bias.
A miserable poorly maintained place without any facilities
They worked with us regarding our really late arrival.
Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unfriendly, if they are even around. Facilities disgusting. Bad location with nothing around. Tried to charge me for nights I wasn't there because I didn't want to stay at their facility.
Everything. Overall bad experience.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly.
As we have never stayed in a hostel before so it is hard to give a non- judgemental opinion. The cost was almost as much as we had paid for a 5 ✴ hotel in Alberta the night before. As it was in a rather poor part of the city, it was hard to feel secure with a door that would have been easily compromised.
The price was the cheapest but you get what you pay for in Maui.
Breakfast was simple but not very sanitizing because staff did not clean up afterwards causing ants scattering all over the place. Our room also had ants and staff accused me of having food in the room, which was a lie. This is a poorly managed business. Staff are either young kids or family members who are not very good at accomodating travelers. Wifi was not working properly and staff refused to believe it initially and responded by saying "I don't usually work here." Staff was not in available when they said they would be even though the office door has the OPEN light on. Rundown building with horrible spund proof and some not very considerate customers. If you have a family DO NOT come close to this place.
The room was so small, no door for the bathroom, sometimes no hot water. The room was not very clean and the personel wasn t here for the check-out.
We got a free upgrade, laundry, good wifi
Poor breakfast, dirty and small kitchen, needs an improvement.
It was extremely clean. I loved the staff. Wonderful people. I also recommend King's Chinese restaurant that occupies the front of the building.
We arrived on a kona day, and room could have used a little fan. Bring one. First time we ever stayed at a hostel, so we did not know to *ask* for water glass, washcloth, soap. Most hostel guests carry their own.
We liked the staff, the receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. Also, wifi was working both in the rooms and on the yard.
We have difficulties with finding the hostel as it is hidden in a yard and there were no directions on the street (or we did not see them). The bed was really uncomfortable, it was sooo soft that you were sleeping in a hole!!! Also, you hear everything from the street - we could not sleep because we heard dustmen, roosters... The room was quite expensive so we expected more than unclean shower, room without windows and very uncomfy bed. Try camping in Hawaii - you get more comfort for better price!
Me and my boyfriend were there for three days, the couple who's in charge of the place if very friendly they showed us everything very warm welcome and good people, we felt safe and in good hands! They were very accommodate when we asked questions they were there to help us to know more about Maui and the highlights. Also there's a washing machine and a dryer we can use, room with TV and DVD and wifi works very good! We really loved our nights there. I recommend it for sure.
The hostel is in the middle of the island, in a central location. The manager was nice instead of everything.
We asked to change the room because it was awful and we had to add more money. The queen room was better than the other one but anyway really dirty, unconfortable,small and full of bugs and mosquitos. The common area (kitchen) was horrible and bugs everywhere.. We staied for 4 nights (just because the reservation was not refundable) and we refused to use it bacause of the dirt. Fortunately we decided to stay out from 6 in the morning till 10 pm. I will never recommend this place to anyone.
Convenient location, free parking
Poor service, the room was barely clean, no soap nor even toilet paper (!), very noisy (could hear the neighbor snoring)... okay(ish) if you need a place to sleep and nothing more.
I went to Maui for a volleyball touney and was traveling on a budget. This place was affordable to me. All i needed was a bed and bathroom which this place had what i needed.
The no cable at this hoyel is a huge minus. But there is a tv and dvd player. And it would be nice if I could invite friends over to chill and relax too. But you cNt even do that. Other then those too it was okay to me.
Friendly staff, easy to park, good restaurant attached
small room (although reasonable for the price) No TV although DVDs available.
Central location, good to use as base to explore other cities.
No fan in room, area is not a good part of town, many 'long term' tenants. I was not comfortable staying at this place.
Location. Downtown Maui.
Small room, no air cond or fan, rough area of town with what look like transients. Did not feel save!
host is very warm. The guy tried to help me with my credit card issue. His boy is cute. There is a Chinese restraunt next to the hostel. The owner couples coming from Fujian. They are nice peoples.
The room is too small to be comfortable. No towel, room not ventilated well.
Everything, the worst hostel I have ever been. The hostel was overbooked, and they wanted to give me a room without private bathroom. After two hours, and several calls to booking.com, they offered me the type of room I booked, but they tried to make me feel guilty by telling me that somebody else wouldn't have the room. The knob of my room (number 9) couldn't be locked, so my stuff was accessible to everybody. After staying for 4 nights, the staff didn't solve my problem! The room was extremely small, dirty and noisy, and the neighborhood very decadent. Don't go to this hostel, pay more for something better.
It was quaint and just a good deal.
The sounds of garbage trucks??
Location was good. Funky vibe in beautiful downtown Wailuku. Free off street parking.
Old, dirty, dingy, poor conditions more suitable for condemnation rather than guests. I'm about as far as one can get from high maintenance and this place was way below my minimal requirements ie. TV looks good for a photo op, but not hooked up to cable service. No air conditioning, understandable, but room was hot, poorly ventilated with no ceiling fan. I was provided with a box fan after asking to move to room with ceiling fan as some rooms did have a ceiling fan.
The room was functionable, bed was good and the in room bath was okay.
There was no ice machine or ice trays. With no A.C. the days got stuffy. I may not have noticed but if the kitchen didn't have one it could use a microwave.
