Liked: It is ok, but nothing special

Disliked: It is overpriced and you have to pay for internet which is already unacceptable but then it also was really expansive (I think it was 4$ for 15 minutes). They have AC everywhere and the room was far too cold.

Liked: This is the third time I've stayed in a hostel, and it was a great experience unlike the ones in Amsterdam or Budapest. This is comparable to ones in Zurich for cleanliness. Clean and simple rooms (4 female dorm), bathrooms, and hallways. Not too noisy, can get to sleep fine. Good value for money, especially in off-peak season, where we only had 2 people in a 4 people dorm. Breakfast (bagle and banana/orange) included. They have a clean and equipped kitchen and a little tv watching room joined onto the kitchen. Wifi in the reception lounge. All in all, very clean, comfortable, and a great place to stay if you're out and about all day. Small lockers in room and hooks for towels, and card key for the rooms, bathrooms, and entrance to hostel. They give you sheets, pillowcase, a small towel, and a blanket when you arrive, pillow already on bed. Air conditioning in room, but a little loud, not a problem if switched off at night. They let you leave your bag there after checkout for free to collect later. The most important criterias for me were safety, cleanliness, and ability to sleep. All three were offered by South Beach Hostel, and I would stay here again. This is for a 4 female dorm in off-peak season, so I can't speak for the other bigger dorms, or in peak season. But it was a pleasant stay, and my roommate and I got on well and it was just the two of us for the 5 nights.

Disliked: No ladders to get to top bunk (although I stayed on bottom bunk). But that's about the only thing I can think of. Checkout is at noon, could be a couple of hours later, but they let you leave your bag there for free after checkout. Toilets could be a little more spacious - hard to enter and exit without tiptoeing.

Liked: The staff here were very informative and friendly-they answered my numerous stupid questions with a lot of patience, which is more than I couldve done. The bar and pool table area were awesome, and a great place to meet other travelers. The location of the hostel is awesome-close to lots of stuff, but not in a noisy/cluby/cracked out area.

Disliked: Although the door that separated the bar area from the hallways of dormrooms did a great job of keeping the loud drunk people/music out, I heard a dorm room door slam every 2 minutes or so. And LOUD. Like, loud enough to wake me up several times. And I am not a light sleeper. It just went on all night. At about 5 I heard what I assume was the manager (i heard the jingly keys they walk around with) walk up and down the hall slamming a few doors-(checking bathrooms, maybe?) Also, the rooms were really really small. That usually doesn't bother me, but it was awkward trying to navigate through everyone's stuff. Oh and the website doesn't mention that the shuttle buses only run at 9 am and 3 pm. And the internet is expensive even though the computers lag like crazy, which I thought was a little unfair. But its still a great place!

Liked: The people were really nice there but our 6 mixed dorm was way too small. I´m not sure if i was just unlucky and there are bigger rooms but it was almost unbearable to be in the room with 5 other people. You couldn´t move at all without stepping on belongings of your roommates.

Liked: On the Plus side: Definitely an active place. Can't help but meet people and socialize. Excellent location close to the action and the beach, yet just a few blocks out from the noisy all night bustle.On the Down side: Rooms are tiny, the metal bunks squeak endlessly, the doors bang, the halls echo, and the single bathroom per floor can be crowded. But what do you expect for so little money at a hot location.It is a good spot if you are a traveler and want a controlled friendly late night spot.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
