Liked: the vibe was great. everyone is so friendly: the staff, other guests and they have programs for visitors such as snorkeling at molokini. they have all informations such as post offices, bus stops, where to buy groceries, emergency plans etc. highly recommended

Disliked: the location is away from popular spots where lots of people go to. To go to Lahaina or Kihei you need to take bus or car and that can take a while.

Liked: The Northshore Hostel Maui is definitely a very good place to stay. I shared the 8 beds room with foreigners mostly american it was great. The receptionist is lovely, there is a very good entertainment, people sharing their food, behave on the terrass balcony..a big living room with TV..people share about plans, good deal..well you have to stay there!!!

Disliked: Maybe the location..well it's near the airport and a big Mall (Queen), which is the great location for buses in Maui..but it's not located in the most beautiful part of the island..that's mean it could be even better to rent a car

Customer review

22 June 2010

Liked: It's your basic hostel, average kitchen, only 4 bathrooms for 30-40 people, which means some uncomfortable waiting, and a really loud TV in the center of everything (thankfully required to be off until 5 pm and not audible from my room). Charged me $5 extra per night because I booked through this site rather than the hostel's own website. Renting a car on Maui cost me $118 for the week, and gas was $5-10 per day, so not expensive compared with the cost of not renting one (=not seeing much of the island, lots of time wasted waiting for buses instead of being on vacation). Many guests didn't rent a car, and people who didn't speak to me otherwise would ask me to come along, and it got to be awkward. One woman more than 20 years older than me snubbed me after I declined politely. Even if you don't plan to take advantage of the Banana Hostel's trips, it may be a better idea to stay there to avoid these uncomfortable interactions.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
