That's a horrible place! The location is good and the stuff was really friendly! But it was dirty! Especially the bath room! This hostel needs a better cleaning lady and the room would need more fresh air! It smelled so bad! We have to wash all our clothes because of the bad smell!!! I will never stay there again!!

Do Not stay here. I booked over the phone not knowing it was more halfway house than hostel. I actually left 20 min after getting there, of course no refund as no one was in the office and I was told they wound't be in until noon the next day. I've stayed in many hostels, but for this one, I... More

I'm having a hard time rating this place, so I'll tell you my story. I was coming into Ft Lauderdale on a Saturday night, and this place worked well with my nonexistent budget. Real horrorshow reviews, as you're no doubt aware (barring all of these 5-star reviews of a hostel from people who have only written TA reviews for this... More

Do not book here. Absolutely filthy, felt unsafe even in a private room. Staff are rude and in denial about how disgusting it is. Did not change pillow cases. Horrible location. Overpriced and disgusting.

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.
