Default Banana Bungelow Maui

Just booked myself into this hostel for a week in April but to be honest the bad reviews are giving me second thoughts, has anyone stayed there before and if so what did you think?

I've stayed at the banana bungalows in cali and loved em. They were some of my favorite hostels.

Some people, especially americans i think, get so used to the cookie cutter HI hostels that hostels like banana bungalow, ie a little less clean, a little less organized, run by "hostelers" most of the time instead of hired staff, seem like a bad deal. Personally though I have decided that if given the choice of a HI hostel or a unknown one, I will go with the unknown.

So yeah I dig banana bungalow. I have not been to the Hawaii one yet though.
