Good for budget and convenience
Very convenient to waterfront and downtown marketplace. Room was very spartan, no window, but simple and clean. Front desk was very friendly and accommodating. We would return for convenience and affordability. Shuttle to airport was fairly priced (divided among travelers) and on time which we appreciated.

Very good 8.0
I landed in Tahiti at 2100 with no hotels available under $325 per night. The Mahana Hostel had one bed left - a 6 woman dorm, upper bunk, $28 per night. I hadn’t stayed in a hostel for 35 years - and thought this one was great! It’s clean, air conditioned, quiet and right across the street from the ferry building. Wifi worked well and the staff (especially Maui) was awesome. As a result I stayed 2 more nights, the last one in a bottom bunk. My only complaint is the breakfast - it’s just bread & coffee. Other options would be nice.....fruit, cheese,
