I really loved this hostel/hotel. As a solo traveler it was perfect except for the two women living in shared girls dorm. Just check for their presence because one is a cancerous, coughing, pillow stealing polar bear. The other woman chewed me out for waking her up..while standing naked and toweling herself off. Just not a comfortable situation. The front... More

My gf and i used a private room with 2 queen beds. The price was cheap (compared to other good hotels around there. It wasnt that cheap if you only look at the price) but our room was dirty with super old and ugly furnitures and the bathroom was as dirty as public bathrooms in subway stations. You can see... More

It´s an ugly, dirty, hostel... noisy. You can do better choice in MIAMI, even if you dont have so much money to spent... but, see the pics that many people have post here.... It´s the real thing... This should be closed.....

This is a hostel/ hotel combo with a marvelous location. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the pool (yes they have a pool!!!). We had three single beds and our own bathroom. Also a huge closet, which served as suitcase storage to us. The bathroom was small but served it's purpose. We parked our car in the public... More

The hotel/hostel is definitely an older building but for the money and location it can’t be beat. Just half a block away from the beach which was an awesome location. The staff were super friendly, always around to answer any questions we had. The kitchen was great. Could do with a toaster but other than that it was pretty well... More

My girlfriend and I managed to double book hotels in Miami. Both were pre-paid. We decided to stay at another hotel than Tropics(This due to very high activity at the south beach area during "Urban Beach week festival that we wasn't aware of). We came to the reception and met the manager. He understood the situation and was so kind... More

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights and it was quite a pleasant stay. Got to the hotel from airport via 150 bus, which was a quick n cheap way of getting there, only 2.65 dollars. the bus stop is situated near the hotel which made it convenient. The location of the hotel was brilliant everything was so close,... More

Stayed in Private room. Room was spacious and clean. Had great amenities and wonderful location. No issues. This place had everything we needed. Nice cold a/c, tv and pool. Never really spent too much time in room as we were busy seeing the city. Great deal!

The bathrooms were ghetto and run down. Our room had no air conditioner or refrigerator. You get what you pay for. The only good things was the pool and the black cat hanging out in and outside the lobby.

OK came in on a Friday and this was the cheapest available hotel. Not terrible. I barely stayed in the room as I went straight to the beach! Service was good. The gentleman was very helpful. The room was two single beds....good sleep. The bathroom needs cleaning and some upgrade....but really cannot complain as I was only there before my... More
