Needs a little Fix Up A review of Banana Bungalow Maui Hostel
The price was definitely what hooked me. I was looking for a clean, decent and safe place to stay. The Hostel staff was friendly and accomodating and the other travelers were so warm. It wasn't in the safest of areas and one night we were awakened to the sound of a terrible fight taking place in the housing projects across the street.
At least 8 police cars came screaming in front of the hostel and there was a lot of tension outside. A little scary to say the least. Also, it wouldn't take much to fix the place up a little bit - repaint the rooms and put in some decent beds with clean linens (our bedspread was literally crusty). But I will say that I would stay there again. I met some absolutely wonderful people and the gardens were lovely with tropical birds singing in the morning and the smell of flowering and fruiting trees filling the air.
