 Get to know Maui (no more

Anyone who has been to Maui knows that there is more to the Polynesian archipelago than Blue Hawaii. The beautiful island of Maui is a must-see for anyone visiting the Hawaiian Islands, whether you're looking for a hostel for a weekend or a week!

The most-traveled entry city to the island is Kahului, site of the prominent airport and home to the island’s largest urban center. This area is perhaps the best place to station your hostel, as all that the island has to offer is merely a drive away, and likely contains the cheapest rates.

From there, you can take the "Road to Hana" -- the luscious route along the northern shore to the eastern town of Hana -- or pack your rucksack for an unforgettable day’s hike in Haleakala National Park, a UNESCO-designated International Biosphere Reserve. Soak up rays in one of the almost unquantifiable solitaire beaches decorated along Maui’s beautiful coast, or overlook the western side of the island to land’s end from West Maui Forest Reserve. No one says that Hawaii has to be only for the wealthy! If you do find yourself on the western side of the island, do not forget to stop by the Lahaina Fish Company for a savory dinner overlooking the setting Pacific sun, with Lanai in the distance.

With many of Hawaii’s majestic natural forest reserves, the small island of Maui deserves close attention to detail, with a refined regard to ecological beauty. In very few places will you find more genuine kindheartedness than in the locals of Maui. Across the island and particularly in Hana, the Mahalo spirit shines brighter than the tropical sun.
