Liked: I liked the facilities and the atmosphere, always easy to connect with travelers in the "main area". There's a kitchen available, free pool and also a yacuzzi (although it's probably seen it's best days, didn't see anyone use it). They arrange good nights out, 25 usd for guys and 20 for the girls (you might also get free drinks out on the clubs as a girl.....)

Disliked: The security could be better, although we had key cards to the rooms. There's a main door to the upstair rooms, which only hostel guests are supposed to have access to, but it's never locked. There are lockers in the rooms, but they are small and won't fit a normal sized backpack. There were only 2 available sockets in our room (8 people), so charging your stuff in the room might be a problem.

Liked: The staff is awesome, super friendly and helpful. Lots of places to hang out and relax, although when I was here (August) it was too hot to hang out outside for too long.

Disliked: The property is older and something about the lack of insulation meant that even though the A/C was on, the 12-bed room was almost unbearably hot. We almost ended up switching hostels. It was pretty miserable. They did tell us that they are doing some construction, so hopefully this won't be this way forever.

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.
