Liked: I like that it is really close to the beach, safe, most of the clubs are in a walking distance. The area is really nice, surrounded by skyscrapers and art deco buildings.

Disliked: The hostel has to solve the problem with Wi-Fi. It constantly switches off after 15 min of working, so you have to use the desktop computers (and you of course have to pay for it).)

Liked: It is much safer than other hostels in this region and the rooms are very clean (including bathrooms). Moreover, I really enjoyed the pancake breakfast.

Disliked: The mattresses are not so comfortable due to the fact that they are pretty old. The hostel takes to much money for the wasching machines. In other hostels in this area it is far less expensive to wash cloth. And: The hostel takes to much money for storing a bag. In most hostels I have been in this is for free. Especially if you have to check out at 11 and your flight back home goes in the evening it would be nice to be able leaving the luggage in the hostel for a while.

Liked: The dorm room were ok, the matress was old but the bathroom in the room is a plus. Internet quite bad but the place is ok. The 150bus from the airport arrives a block away from the hostel no need to change for the local bus as advertised. I would come back.

Liked: Very cool atmosphere. And the coolest chef ever with awesome cheap food.

Disliked: The worst coffee I have ever had...ever. I would rather suggest to sell good coffee and give for free brown water. The staff could be more nice and smiling.

Liked: It is the quieter of the 3 main hostels in SB, but still fun. Good location near the beach. Good Value for money $15 a night.

Disliked: Daytime staff were nice evening/night guy was arrogant. The street outside floods when it rains heavy. The beds are on the smaller side.

Liked: It's South Beach, so there's lots of partying and there's a hostel promoter that sorts cheap club-entries every night. The hostel atmosphere is excellent, or it was when we were there! It helps that you all pre-drink together and then go out together. It's also in an excellent location for clubs and bars - they basically surround you, and you're like three minutes' walk from the beach. Aside from that, the hostel is pretty average, comfortable and clean enough and reasonably priced. The staff were nowhere near as bad as reviews make out, just that a couple of them aren't too outgoing, but they'll always help when asked. Also when getting tours around the area, make sure you haggle, and also say you're staying at the hostel to get money off.

Disliked: The beds are ridiculous. Not only super-narrow but pretty uncomfortable also - they all seem to have huge dips in them. Some of the top bunks don't even have ladders up to them and everything is very squeaky. Make sure you bring a padlock and use the lockers because it's Miami. The laundry wasn't available all day, only limited hours. After around eleven you basically have to leave the hostel if you want to chat and drink. If you're not into the party scene then I might suggest a smaller dorm, and perhaps non-mixed (really, it's Miami Beach, come with an open mind!).

Liked: Location and price were good.

Disliked: No Television during the day (whilst it was radio time) even though there was no one in the so called social area (reception). Staff were not very friendly or helpful. Refused to give us change for the payphone in the kitchen area even though it then turned out to be a card phone. Kitchen eating area had 3 small tables and 7 chairs with no room at all.
