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!

I stayed at the Everglades Hostel during a recent roadtrip to South Florida. It is the only low budget option for travellers in the area, and is conveniently located outside of the Everglades in Florida City. We used it as a launching point for day trips to the Everglades, Miami, and the Keys. We chose to camp for $18 a... More

I stayed at the Everglades International hostel in february of 2015 and I enjoyed my stay. Just outside of the everglades in florida city the location is really more suited if you have a set of wheels. The tours don't seem to be apart of the Hostel anymore but are still advertised as it's clear there is a change in... More

The worst ! I really don’t get all the positive reviews The place is a rathole. We paid 75$ for a private room with shared bathroom The room smelled like a fake perfume to make it look like it’s clean, but it wasn’t, and it gave us a headache. They have a shared kitchen, but nothing to make pancakes as... More
