DO NOT STAY HERE. Simple. Staff - Unhelpful, hardly ever available and in complete denial about the condition of this place. The room was filthy, my first night i spent sleeping on the floor as the office woman did not give me the right key to my room and would not answer the door to help. The mattresses were split,...

I was travelling around looking for work and living out of my car and got sick and needed a cheap place to stay. My sister googled around and found this dump. She told me it was $30 a night, near the beach, had wifi and showers so it sounded exactly like what I needed. I couldn't check in right away... More

the bedrooms are more like an apartment, every room has their own kitchen and bathroom. Easy going and friendly people, nice to relax at the pool, share drinks. Not close to the beach, but takes you 30 min walk

It is hostel so do not expect hotel services and restaurant. Rooms are good and spacious. Near to Airport, Downtown, convention center and A1A beach. Staff is not really very helpful but if you just want to move around more rather than staying back in room only then this is the best place with budget friendly mode.

This place was filthy from the moment we walked in. We found bed bugs and fleas and other vermin, droppings and more. Totally made me ill, had to run from this place! The staff is rude and unhelpful, let alone uncaring and denying all the disgusting findings. Be clear: this place is horrible! If I could add a ZERO for... More

Old and completely dirty! A lot of odd people hanging around, not like a hostel with a lot of backpackers. We didn't stay because I didn't want to even walk into the bathroom, such a dirty mess! Old opened food everywhere! The door lock was broken and I didn't feel save there. We left a short while after arriving and... More

The rooms are awesome! We are a couple but stayed it two seperate male/female dorms. Rooms are clean, spacious, incl a kitchen and a living area in the room (it's more like an apartment) and the beds were very comfortable. The guests were friendly and staff helpful. It's quite a sociable hostel on a great location only about 10 minutes... More
