I love the staff, they were so easygoing and friendly. Rooms are decent but people were great. Bathrooms are nice. The building is great and i like the location of that hostel very much! You can walk 3 minutes to Miami beach!

The room: We booked a double room with private bath & toilet. It was a good choice. The size was great compared to European rooms, but standard to American sizes. The bed was comfy and the room was quite basic but cozy. It would be a great improvement if they installed a refrigerator in the room. The room had a... More

When I searched for hotels for my trip to Miami in November 2013, I realized it’s best to stay in South Beach as this is were all the action takes place. Unfortunately, most hotels in or near the Art Deco district proved to be very expensive and all other decent accommodation was definitely too far away for my taste. The... More

Old hotel with character! Friendly staff and quick check in. Location is right in the middle of all the action, one block from a walgreens, rooms were small, simple, and clean. Wish there was more outlets, but clear signal to Wifi. Price is great, almost a cant beat. Recommend if your wanting to spend a weekend close to the beach.... More

I knew this was a low cost hotel when I booked and I was fine with that. The room was basic but nice with plenty of space. There's a very nice pool and the overall vibe is good. HOWEVER, neither the wifi nor the AC worked properly throughout our entire stay. We repeatedly told the staff at the front desk... More

This place for my friend and I was HORRIBLE!! I couldn't get a washcloth or an extra towel to shower, the tvs were old and the buttons were missing. The comforter was old. The room was dingy, the outlets barely worked. Had to charge my phone in the bathroom. The person that was working wasn't sympathetic about anything at all.... More

So it is hard to find anywhere inexpensive in this area of Miami Beach. However, the fact that they are on in the cheap end of the spectrum seems to have gone to their head, because there aren't many positives here. There was a total of one outlet. It was behind the nightstand. We had to go out and buy... More

This hostel is really a hotel that has been changed into a hostel. The rooms are really nice, clean and spacious. A great location just minutes from Lincoln St, Espanola Way and South Beach - it's just opposite the Loews. Beautiful outside area with kitchen and a great swimming pool - a real pool, folks, not that flat puddle you... More

We have now visited Tropics Hotel 3 times for 2-3 night stays and enjoyed it each time. The staff are very friendly and efficient, and also know the area very well. Our room was a good size, with two beds, TV. and bathroom. Once we got in (the lock was a bit temperamental) the room was in a good state... More

Me and my 2 sisters booked a room in this hotel for 10 days. We are really disappointed and regret that we booked since we had bed bugs in our room. We stayed in room 310 and it was awful. The room was sultry my sisters were sleeping in the double bed and they got horrible big bites on their... More
