I loved my stay at Tiki! The volunteers quickly felt like a little family and the location is amazing. Martin is a great manager and provided us with basic ingredients and was really easy to communicate with. Thank you! Be aware that there are cats and also Martins kids living on the property :)
Unfortunately there are currently changes happening due to new volunteers and the owner. The workers are not living at the hostel and the experience is not as described on worldpackers anymore.
As i said I loved my stay but i would contact current volunteers about the conditions and changes happening

It was my first time volunteering in a hostel and I loved it. I met amazing people from all over the world. I had an incredible time here on Maui! A big thank you to the host and the other volunteers! I loved the enviroment that they created here. Everyone feels welcome, safe and happy. The hours and tasks were very fair! The place is neraby everything and it is easy to take the buses. The tasks were not complicated. The host was flexible with some shifts if someone needed it. Martin is very nice and friendly. I miss the tiki beach hostel <3.

Staying at Tiki for my first experience as a solo traveler was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life! I’ve met so many beautiful humans, guests and volunteers, from around the world that i would’ve never been able to meet in any other way! The other volunteers immediately felt like sisters, and i got used to live with so many people very quickly! The location is also perfect to do a lot of things by walk or by bus and explore Lahaina. Martin and his family were very welcoming and i felt like home immediately. I will forever be grateful for this experience and i 100% recommend <3

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Tiki Beach Hostel welcomed me with open arms on my first solo travel. The volunteers became family; Ohana. As beautiful as Maui is, this experience would not have been the same without the people I met! The memories we shared will stick with me for a lifetime. The hours were fair and left plenty of extra time for adventuring. Martin, the manager, always bought basic food (eggs bread milk) for us which was a big help with cost of food on the island. Martin hosted some taco nights as well. I’m incredibly grateful for my time here.

What a horrible experience working at this hostel, The rooming situation was completely different from the pictures and Martin was extremely rude. I never got welcomed in properly and was really confused with the schedule. There was no organization and the place was really dirty. Martin didn’t care of the well being of anyone who worked there. He ended up kicking me out the first day just because i was 2 minutes late. I had nowhere else to go and was having a really bad panic attack and he just stared at me and said nothing. I had to fly out to oahu to stay with a friend. Would not recommend
