  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
It Worked

It served as a safe harbor with a bed. That's all we were looing for. Hotels.com had the wrong address, so we had to call the hostel to find the location. A little less than we expected in terms of number of showers and toilets. Staff was friendly, and we met other travelers. Some tiny ants in the room near any food left outside the fridge.


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Hostel City Maui 1 is closed. It lookded like a dump from the outside. My reservation was transfered to Hostel City 2 Maui and that was good.



Room 8'x14', no chair, toilet not anchored to floor, mattres smells urine, room dirty, cocroaches, a slum for 100$ US for the night. Erase that "hotel" from your list if you don't want to loose your name.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything

Location: Nothing to do nearby


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Nice for a supe cheap one night stay if you're not planning on staying in the room much! Fan was broken and there wasn't a bathroom door but it wasn't terrible!

Traumatic & Gross!!

Absolutely awful! The room smelled like urine and the caretakers were screaming at each other outside our window! We left after 2hrs and booked into a different hotel!
