19 October 2009 Melissa would recommend this property

Liked: A few blocks from the main drag of Duval Street and near the Souther Most point, so it's easy to walk to everything. The accomodations are pretty basic, but when i stayed I was the only one in the 10 bed dorm, so it was kinda cool - if everyone was there though, it would be a bit crowded. The faciliaties are basic but cover all the essentials.As it's the only Hostel in Key West, it's your best option!

Liked: It's the only hostel in Key West, though all locations are expensive. It's nice that the rooms are motel like (enter from outside to different rooms, not in 1 building). What I don't like: You had to pay for the lockers, every time u opened put some new quarters in.

Liked: great location! However, it was in neglect. It was obvious the bathroom sink had been plugged for a while and the shower area was not ventilated and smelled of mildew. This hostel desperately needs some upgrading!

Liked: The fact that there is only 1 hostel on key west, is probably the only reason I would recommend this hostel. The price, which is double most other hostels, includes nothing except a bed. The rooms are ok and the location is pretty good, but other than that I wouldn't stay here unless your on your own. Two people can get a better deal somewhere else.
