My friend invited me to go hiking, kayaking and air boating in the Everglades and, based on the recommendation of some of her fellow Master Naturalists, we booked a stay at this hostel. As a mid-40's professional, staying at a hostel is not really my speed, but this was a trip about breaking out of suburbia and having an adventure... More

Pulling up to the Everglades Hostel, you might not think its much, very unassuming. But oh, you couldn't be more wrong. What an amazing place. We rented one of the ensuite rooms for 4 people. Our room had 4 beds, bunk bed style. The bathroom shower was a little weird, and lacked the privacy I tend to prefere, but not... More

I'm not your normal hostel dweller, so I apologise in advance for anything I say that may be interpreted in a negative way, it is certainly not intended in that way. This is a fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. This is exactly what I expect from a hippy style hostel. The owners / staff... More

If you are looking for the Hilton keep driving, if you want a great place to stay stop here now. We had never stayed in a Hostel but went in with an open mind. We were shown around the grounds and then to our room. Our room had a king size bed that was very comfortable and our own bathroom... More

I'm disappointed to see the negative reviews from people expecting a hotel-like experience. Hostels are not hotels. And this one is different than most hostels in the US. While "boutique" hostels spring up around Miami, this place is all about the experience. It is 17 years old, so let's excuse the lack of shiny spotless walls and floors to the... More

You have to be the type of person who likes the organic lifestyle. For me, it is the best hostel ever. The garden, the nature pool, the open minded stuff and the love spirit you can feel in the air. Do yoga or play a game, go up to the tree houses or just relax next to the fire. I... More

We live in Miami but thought about a little mini break for the weekend and drove down on a Saturday. We were shown around and wanted to go into the pool as soon as we could - it's chilly but super refreshing! It's just a beautiful and natural little place where they use ecological cleaning solutions and really care about... More

Check out the photos on their website and by google images - that says it all! The owners have put their heart and soul in that place over 18 years. It truly is an oasis. I can't decide what my favorite part was - the hammock, the tree house (especially the top level :), the pond and waterfall, the outdoor... More

We only stayed here for one night after arriving in Florida, on or way to the Keys. We had a private room with shared bathroom and everything was very good. The room was nice and clean, the bathroom had a good shower. But the best thing is the garden! Such a nice place to relaxe, to enjoy your pancakes in... More

Awesome garden, awesome outdoor shower and very friendly+help full staff. Only downside is that it is located next to a rather noisy road, so bring earplugs when you're sensible to noise for sleeping. We highly recommend this place to everyone!
