This hostel is very good value for money. I love the location near everything. There is a buzz in the evenings. I was in the eight bed dorm, air condition worked well, the room was clean all in all I would recommend this place. A young crowd but not age -ist -many older people stay here too.

I stayed in hostel with my young family a few days ago. It's a really great place, staff very friendly and the Family Suite we stayed in was excellent - clean and very comfortable bunk beds. The children really enjoyed playing in the pool. The only complaint I have was the food. I ordered my food and paid for it... More

Cool, excellent, almost boutique. Great staff too. I stayed only the one night, it coincided with the annual music festival in Miami, so prices were high,$50 a night, but it was good to sample Miami, the real beauty however is that this establishment is a cracking-good place to people watch! The dorm beds, which is always my preferred option, were... More

I traveled here with friends over spring break and if it weren't for them I may not have even tried a hostel. We shared a private quad and it was shockingly affordable as compared to the hundreds of dollars that would be spent to get a hotel. Breakfast was included and there is a restaurant and bar on location. It's... More

The hotel is close to several bus stops. It's also close to the beach.The breakfast was quite simple, though there's a subway around the corner if you want something to fill you up. The staff was friendly and helpful during my stay. Concerning the rooms, the bed was confortable and the bathrooms were clean. I stayed on the top bunker,... More

I stayed here for 5 nights before a cruise recently and, being spring break, it was really expensive to stay everywhere, even the hostel! I think I paid $70 a night which is double what I've ever paid for a hostel bed before, and it wasn't to the same standard. The staff at the front desk were friendly and always... More

The new 27 restaurant at the old Indian Creek Hotel is a trendy, hip place for young people. I am neither young, nor trendy, and neither were my dinner-mates, but we were game to try 27, as we had all enjoyed the charming restaurant that used to be in the hotel. I found the service to be polite, enthusiastic, and... More

The Freehand is now a hip joint to hang out at. We used to stay there when it was The Indian Creek Hotel, a quiet and charming hotel. Now it is all a-buzz with 20 somethings hanging around by the pool, sitting on the many pieces of comfy furniture, just 'hanging out' with each other. I can't think of a... More
