Liked: Okay during my stay for Ultra Music Festival the atmosphere was awesome at the hostel, also the friendliness of the staff was amazing. The transport from the airport to the hostal was easy to get and i had multiple options. I'm just gonna list them so you know in case your wondering. Shuttle: $21 Cab: Around $75 (This varied depending on the traffic). Private Car: Around $75 (To clarify it was a defined price, i just can't remember what it was). You could also grab a bus, but i didn't look into this. The transport from festival was easy as well, since there were alot of shuttles and buses going to south beach and they would leave you roughly 3 blocks away ($5-$10). The bus would leave you really close as well and a cab was worth from $10-$20.

Disliked: Maybe at night it was too cold, but i prefer it being cold then hot.

08 December 2013 DES would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly staff, good vibe, easy to meet people.

Disliked: Thought it was a bit sily taking backpackers to VIP clubs that cost $30 to go inside and full of fake and pretentious people. Not the right vibe. They need to find free entry bars with cheap drinks full of travellers and locals. My guess was the hostel makes profit from selling these $30 tickets at the hostal. Night life because of this was extremly poor in Miami and im a hardcore party boy. Was better few years ago staying at the shore club miami. ($400 a night though).

23 October 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great open and easygoing environment makes it really easy to meet others staying at the hostel so you have plenty of people to hang out and go out with; yet at night they move everyone off to the side/indoors so you can still get a good night's sleep when you decide it's time for bed. Location was close enough to the beach for a brief walk. Rooms were big enough for the number of beds to ensure you had space for your stuff (8 bed mixed dorm).

Disliked: Rooms could have been a bit cleaner.
