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.

Liked: superb place to stay, ticks every box if all you wish to do is go to the beach in the day and club at nighttime, it works! great atmosphere in the main lobby, events promoter comes every night and takes peeps to the biggest nights in miami, mansion, cameo, nikki beach etc for as little as $15-$20 for guys, less for girls, which is much cheaper than you would pay on the door! You can also borrow deck chairs, umbrellas, bat and ball etc to take with you to the beach for FREE which we found great and used everyday, as south beach charges you $12 per sun lounger and $12 for an umbrella! Literally 5 min walk to south beach, right near the pier also and harbourside which is really nice. patio makes it cool to chat with ppl and drink up until 10pm, free pancakes every morning is an added bonus not to be missed for those inevitable hangovers you will have! great value for money!

Disliked: staff werent the most helpful, but didnt affect our trip at all to be honest, they check you in and out, anything else you can find out yourself very easily by speaking to others, so no biggy for me! beds quite narrow and matresses soft and can feel the wires through the sheets not very secure, no card access at front door, anybody can literally walk through to the rooms... no free daytime activities, was all about the nighttime...

Liked: 1 block from South Beach and restaurants and public transport. The extra dinners and lunches...for $5/meal you get a massive plate of food with a drink. Awesome chef mixes it up every night! Free wifi, private bathrooms, organized events every night to clubs if you want to go. Very cheap for location in Miami.

Disliked: room key never worked, asked reception numerous times and they kept saying it was fine when sometimes it would take me 10 minutes to get in. Not very secure, a random traveller it staying in my room was ale to use his key to get into my room. The staff (exception chef and nightlife organizer) were SO rude! Weren't interested and didn't know anything about Miami, everything was a hassle. Breakfast is poor...2 pancakes? Surely it would be easie to put out some cereal and bread rather than pay someone to stand there and make pancakes?

Liked: Clean, cheerful decor, lots of computer rentals and lock-ups for valuables under direct observation of staff, in-room bathrooms shared by dorm for 8 very nice. Nice kids as guests, mostly very young, girls skimpily clad but not rude about it.

Disliked: Some of staff seemed sullen, resentful of guests asking for anything. Staff also unhelpful or unknowledgable on resources in area; for example, where can I get a coffee? at Walgreens 3 blocks away, when Starbucks was actually closer. As the only senior citizen in the place, I was generally ignored by almost all of the guests and staff, although the girls in my dorm were very friendly, and subsequently another grandmother checked in with whom I had much in common. Much profanity, noisy drinking, although no fights, and most of drugs and alcohol behaviors were outside of the public areas of the Hostel.

Liked: the size of hostel was cute. thats about it. and the couple of bouncer types that offer some illusion of safety, but safety nonetheless

Disliked: 1. the unruliness of unsuspecting potential theives can you may be bunking with 2. the delayed display of my #pin on my digital safe box. anyone can get my # 3. should include a few more security walk by /knocks on door. 4. if someone claims a lost room key should ask for id and not just a last name.

Liked: It had a fantastic atmosphere, people were very friendly! The hostel organised an outing to a Miami club each night at discounted prices. The $5 lunches and dinners were fantastic!

Disliked: There were no lockers in the rooms. The bathroom didn't have a working tap and when I asked at reception, they had one person take a look at it but nothing was fixed. Breakfast was only served for one hour.
