Liked: Location: close to Ocian drive and bus stop of airport bus.

Disliked: Our room key was not working so the staff had to open the door every time, since it was a public holiday, they were not able to reprogram the key as the person in charge was out for two days.

Liked: I like this property because it is really close to the beach and they have good prices specially for foreing people who travel a lot, I also like that they give breakfast for free.

Disliked: I disliked that they have 8 dorms in small rooms, it is not confortable at all. And also somebody stole a passport of a girl!! That's terrible and unreliable for me!

Liked: Had an amazing time here. The hostel is basic, but the staff are excellent, they really go out of their way to help you, especially Yuri! Met some great people there and had a good few nights out too. Defo will go back next year. The location is great, 30 second walk from beach, two shops either side of the hostel. Decent kitchen, vending machines, washing facilities, films, average breakfast, bathrooms in the rooms, water filter, free towels, free wifi in lobby and rooms are clean.

Disliked: There's no age limit unlike most hostels so you get a few weirdos hanging around but there's not much you can do about it. We had one annoying idiot in our room for 4/5 nights that loved turning the air-con off which you just do not do when it's 90% humidity and 7 people sleeping in the same room with him. But thats not the hostels fault.

Liked: Location, location, location. Also Yuri was really helpful, without him at reception I would have likely checked out.

Disliked: Other staff were completely unhelpful and rude. Did not experience anything like it after 8 months of travel. Was terrified of asking questions. Didn't feel safe either being a girl, there was a bit of theft going on and no one seemed to care. Luggage Storage fee is also a JOKE!

Liked: Les prix ne sont pas élevés. L'auberge est située dans un endroit calme de south beach. Les parties communes sont propres.

Disliked: Le petit-dejeuner n'est pas assez conséquent (uniquement du café et des pancakes faits maison). Le personnel est désagréable. Les lockers dans les chambres sont inutilisables (cassés) ! Ils proposent d'en louer à la réception. Les chambres de 4 personnes sont aussi grandes que celles de 8.

Liked: Great building and location. Dorms have own bathrooms and there's a large common area in lobby. Staff is friendly and helpful and events happening every night to keep you busy. I had a blast!

Disliked: Patio closes at 10pm which sucks but guess it's a necessity to keep noise down.

Liked: The location wasnt bad, the staff were friendly and the bathroom was spacious

Disliked: the lockers in the room were completely useless as they were all broken and clearly not safe at all, so you were forced to pay for lockers outside your room. The atmosphere was disappointing - not fun, very boring, very quiet.

Liked: Had a fantastic time at the Jazz, the rooms are your typical dorms, bunk beds, and very basic, exactly what you would expect from a hostel. But the place was always clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful and of course the atmosphere was what makes this hostel, in my opinion, the best in Miami. In regards to location - it's pretty ideal, you're a 10 minute walk from the beach and the popular night life destination (and pretty day time walk as well!) Ocean's Drive is the next street across. There's also a Walgreens just 5 minutes down the road, which sells all the typical "holiday gear" as well as pharmaceuticals, food and drink. Met lots of great people and I can't wait to go back!

Disliked: Not much really! The fact that you couldn't sit outside on the porch after 8pm or drink alcohol on the premises after midnight was sometimes a bit of a bummer but I think this is more down to licensing laws and complaining neighbours rather than the Jazz so it's certainly a very minor complaint. As a side note, the lockers provided in the room are fairly small (fit a medium handbag) so if you have any large (or lots of) valuables either rethink bringing them or bring a second padlock for your suitcase! I say this just for the more security conscious travellers - I had absolutely no problems with safety.

Liked: Good location, close to beach n only a few blocks from main st, good directions and easy access from airport.

Disliked: Kitchen and lobby were small compared to the amount of guests, beds were small and uncomfortable, my boyfriend is average hieght n only just fit in the bed- ok for a few nights, not a long stay.
