we stayed here for 4 nights. we hadn't booked so there was no private rooms available so we were in the dorm. the place is very clean and has a great lock system on the door. Joe one of the managers is amazing, he helped us out to get a cheap hire car, he set us up with the 'good'...

We visited here as a couple for a few nights in the heart of whale watching season (February) which is one of the busiest times of the year. We typically stay at The Whaler condos or even Sheraton Black Rock but decided to give our wallets a little break and try something new. The owner, Joe, is a great guy...

Lahaina's Last Resort hostel definitely has something great to offer. Very simplistic, well organized, and overall a good safe environment with great awesome people.

I stayed at this Hostel for 3 nights over a busy weekend in a 6 bedroom dorm. The host, Joe, is a friendly guy and very helpful and eager to please. However, while I was there he had a bunch of side projects going on with tools and rubbish everywhere and he didn't seem in any hurry to get it...

First off, don't let the name "Last Resort" fool you. Almost fooled me but the reviews I read made me change my mind and I'm glad I did. Ok, it's a hostel, don't expect a luxury hotel. But it has what you need: bed, bathroom, good location, and most important, great people. Joe definitely had the Aloha spirit and was...

Hey Philip, Thanks for the review! Yup, it’s a hostel; I like to describe it as an alternative Ka’anapali! For some $300.00 a night for a room is not a problem or some how worth while, but for me and, actually most of our guest, there are better things to spend vacation/holiday money on!!! Sea urchins are a pain, literally!...
