My best friend and I (along with another people) waited OVER an hour after check-in time to get checked in. My friend and I ended up go some other place because the girl still wasnt there after being called multipule times. When we called her to cancel we asked if we could not pay the cancelation fee(because we did show... More

The main thing was that I felt super unsafe. The people walking around at night are sketchy. The beds are horrible with springs poking in your back, but what bothered me the most was that the door didn't really close properly and there was a guy constantely knocking on my door. I slept alone in a room with 8 bunkbeds,... More

This is not a five-star hostel, but it is a nice budget friendly hotel. Our stay wasn't the best, but it served its purpose. The one odd thing is that you may be sharing it with someone. Sharing a room with several bunks is one thing, but sharing an apartment style room with a stranger is another thing. Luckily we... More

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
