09 September 2011 Carol Ruth would recommend this property

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: It's location is reasonable.

Disliked: The stuff were quite rude & our group had many unrelated problems with various uncaring staff members. Staff also have little to no knowledge of Miami and are useless for information.

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.

Liked: Really fun atmosphere. Dinner and lunch could be bought extra, cooked in the hostel which were amazing and really good value for money! Literally 2 minutes walk from south beach. Great location, clean and safe!

Disliked: We had to pay to leave our bags after we checked out on the last day, slightly annoying. Otherwise, perfect hostel!

Liked: Jazz on South Beach hostel is a place that you can find awesome friends from every part of the World.Foods are cheap and you can get volleyball balls or the other stuffs for free except beach towels

Disliked: There was an employee who was too strict about rules and after one point it became ridiculous.And also there are some meaningless rules like after 9.30 you can't stay at the balcony and after 12 pm you can not even smoke in front of the hostel.

Liked: Location is great(just one block away) and you have chance of meeting awesome people from the world over so that you never feel bored or alone! Dinner and lunch is Cheap and yummy as well.

Disliked: One word: breakfast! Ok its free but you better serve something eatable and im sure people would pay some and have it. Another complaint is about the friendliness of stuff. They better smile more rather than pouting all the time..

Liked: The rooms are kept very clean, filtered cold drinking water on hand and a very clean kitchen to work out of. The lunch and dinners offered for $4 and $5 are very well portioned.

Disliked: The showers are terrible, no pressure what so ever and the beds are like sleeping on iron bars. No bowls in kitchen to eat breakfast out so if you plan on buying cereal bring your own bowl.
