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.

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.

Liked: Great opportunity to meet young international and local travelers.

Disliked: Placed us in a different room than we booked for. We booked for a 6-female dorm and they placed us in an 8-mixed dorm with very little to no price difference. Staff claimed they could not honor reservation through hostel bookers if other clients chose to extend their stay making our reserved room unattainable. However, after threatening to complain about the matter, they made attempts to move us into our proper reservation asap the next day. The ac is kept on so rooms were very cold (we needed 4+ blankets to keep warm!) and we were not allowed to regulate the temperature by opening the window. Free internet is limited to 15 min/hour and free breakfast is a bagel and coffee.

Liked: Great place to meet other people from different countries. We spent all in all 5 nights there, after coming from a 8 months trip from south america. The staff was very friendly and some of them speak spanish. So it was an ease to adjust in a different "world". The pool table is really a nice touch as well as the jaccuzzi and table soccer table....they help to create a good social atmosphere. Free ice tea all day long. Average breakfast. Having a liquorstore next door is a feelgood factor. 10-15min. walk to the beach.

Disliked: Do you really come to South Beach to sleep at night?! :)

Liked: Great location with many friendly staff members. Outside area is a great social hub for everyone staying at the hostel and this is facilitated by the pool table and the handy liquor store next door. Also, free bbq every sunday! I had a great time here and didn't just stay for the booked 1 day; i stayed a whole week. Great Hostel!

Disliked: absolutely nothing! well maybe they could provide more bagels in the morning as if you wake up after 9am you don't get one haha. apart from that one minuscule thing, this place is perfect.

Liked: The kitchen and eating/TV area are good. The staff were very friendly and helpful and always available. The pool table is a nice touch. Having two bathrooms in the 10-bed dorms is definitely good. Over all, this hostel was fine, but nothing special. I wouldn't mind staying here again, but if Freehand Miami were available (and not much more expensive, as it sometimes is) I'd go there instead, and if not I'd look around to see what else there was.

Disliked: The beds are not great -- wobbling around when the top bunk moves at all. And in the 10-bed dorms, they're packed right in. (The 6-bed dorms are definitely nicer in that respect.) The wifi was a bit in and out.
