“If you want to see Maui on a budget and meet some great people, this is the place you're looking for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2011

My wife and I stayed at Lahaina's Last Resort for 15 nights, and will definitely spend some time here again when we come back to Maui!

The staff and guests at Lahaina's Last Resort were what really made the trip. Mike and Greg run a visitor information/activity desk from the same building as the hostel and can book just about any activity you can think of. They also go on hiking, camping and partying excursions with the guests staying at the hostel, and are great guides and company. We met other travelers from all over the world (Germany, Alaska, the continental US, Ireland, China, etc.) as well, and were never short of things to do or people to hang out with. The spectrum of activities ranges from things you'd put on a postcard to your grandparents to things that "Stay In Maui". For the latter, be sure to check out Little Beach on Sunday!

The Location: Only 2 blocks off of Front Street and the beach, a block from foodland, and a block from some great (and surprisingly cheap) restaurants. Check out the breakfast at No. 1 Barbecue for $3.75, and the Lahaina Cafe for some of the best (and cheapest) food in Lahaina until 4:00am. Snorkeling or shore diving at Mala Ramp is only a few blocks away. You can catch a bus at the Wharf which goes all over the island for $2/day. Parking at the hostel is free if you have a rental car.

The Facilities: Although nothing exciting, at $70/night you can't go wrong. Clean, comfortable and safe accommodations. We stayed in the "Rainbow Room", which is brightly painted and has A/C, a microwave, mini-fridge, and a sliding door leading to a deck. The deck is in a blind alley between the building and the sound wall on the side of route 30. Not much of a view, but it's a nice place to sit and there's some patio furniture and a charcoal barbecue available. The mattress had seen better days, but linens were clean and fresh (and were replaced once for us during our stay, which was an unexpected bonus in a hostel!). There were absolutely NO issues with bedbugs. There were some small ants that made their way into the room, but didn't appear to bite. The shared bathrooms were in good repair, with 2 stalls, 2 sinks, 2 showers and working hot water. There's also free wifi, and a full-size communal fridge by the activities desk.

Sleep: We had a lot of late nights, some of which took place at the hostel. If you're really counting on that 9:00pm quiet time, you may want to look elsewhere. Usually if anything is happening after around 11:00 it'll be quiet, away from the hostel or everyone will be involved. We never felt like anything (other than a bad sunburn) interfered with getting a good night's sleep when we wanted it.

Convenient to bus, grocery store, and walking in Downtown Lahaina. Nice small place with private rooms, including mini fridge and microwave- so easy to stay a while on budget, or dorm share option. Share a large bath with all rooms, but I barely heard or saw anyone else in the hall during my 3 day stay and they were full at the time!
Staff great at suggesting local activities and even accommodations in other areas.
Laid back social travelers will appreciate as well as more private travelers. International clientel as well as US travelers, meet them in the lobby computer area.

Stayed here for a week in June, really helpful staff. the only really cheap accommodation I could find in lahaina. can't emphasize enough how helpful and freindly the staff were. The dorm accommodation i obviously good for single travelers to meet other people. Location is about 2min walk from the main strip.

I stayed at the Last Resort for several days and absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly and offered help with my stay that went above and beyond what I'd expect from a more typical resort-type establishment. The price was extremely reasonable and the location was pretty much right in the heart of Lahaina. I stayed in my own private room a few nights and then stayed in the hostel a few nights. Both were very cool experiences. There were people traveling from France, Norway and the U.S. staying the hostel, and it was great to chat with them. The private room was air conditioned and cozy. And one of the employees gives surf lessons at a great price!

Two thumbs way up for this place. Really a fun little place to be.
