Liked: I've stayed in many hostels and this is one of my favorites! The staff is super friendly, the beds are comfy and you only have to walk 2 min to get to the beach or you can also stay at the hostel and lie at the pool all day. The hostelbar is great and as a hostelguest you get a discount on the drinks. I had a really great time here :)

Disliked: Johanna left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location to the beach is great although its a $10 cab ride to the main restaurants and night spots.

Disliked: The drink prices at the bar are ridiculous. And the room they gave us hadnt been cleaned. When we complained the sheets were changed although the bathroom remained uncleaned for the entirety of our stay.

Liked: Great public area, amazing atmosphere. The pool, the drinks, the people. I really liked the breakfast, perfect start in the day: fresh fruits, cereals with fresh milk, nice orange juice that tastes almost freshly squeezed and bread.

Disliked: Lights in the room didnt work well. Lock not provided, but needed to buy.

Liked: Loved this place. The atmosphere and the garden that had a pool was just amazing. Perfect for sunlicking during the day, and when it got dark the whole place were lid up. So pretty. I also loved the room. The beds were arranged in a way that everyone had some privacy. Would recommend this to everyone!

Liked: The room was quite big and the bunks were like fixed "booths" so they were big and stable (couldn't feel the person above me moving around) and there was plenty of space to keep things in there too. Breakfast was included, the hostel has a pool and bar, it's walking distance to the beach... overall, really good.

Disliked: The cleaners came at very random and different times each day and I don't think they actually did much apart from change the towels. The bathroom didn't really get cleaned very well.

Liked: Sehr schöne Außenanlage mit kleinem Pool. Die Bar war zwar teuer, aber alles in Miami ist teuer... Die Zimmer waren so schön wie auf den Fotos. Die Belegschaft war rund um die Uhr sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich kann dieses Hostel nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen.

Liked: The rooms are superficially pretty clean, the bar is nice but way too expensive for what you get, the location is convienient. The shower gets hot quickly and the beds are comfy.

Disliked: It is super loud. Dont stay there unless you dont usually go to bed before 2, thats when they start to turn off the music from the bar (and it gets loud at around 8 again). Its really super loud even with earplugs. Also the staff is very unfriendly and has no clue about anything if you ask them. Also the people who stay there are not very open, the atmosphere was rude and cold and its super expensive for what you get. Also we found disgusting stuff under our matresses (I lost something, thats why we lifted them) and I would really recommend them bed-bug-coversheets as every hostel I stayed in so far had, to prevent possible bedbugs from staying in the hostel.

Liked: Alright breakfast included, if you get up earlier than 10am. Nice pool and backyard. Rooms and beds are in very good condition. Housekeeping cleans and provides fresh towel every day. You get to meet locals who come in at night for the bar.

Disliked: Guest kitchen closes at 10pm. The bar is expensive (for travellers budget), but for Miami it´s quite alright.

Liked: I liked the atmosphere in freehand hostel, Friendly and helpfull staff. I love them too much, clean and large rooms; two barhrooms inside. I liked the pool and and the garden.

Disliked: One thing that I didn!t like such as: I didnt like the bar concept in hostel. It doesnt appeal to Travelers who are law budget. The atmosphere is amazing in the bar but this is an hostel and ıt is for travelers means people looking for a cheap place to stay not to pay an expensive bar. Bar entrance is common for all local people but sometimes hard to find a seat for people who stay in the hostel. It doesnt make any sense for settlers.
