When you think of Miami beach you think of sunshine, sandy beaches and cold drinks. These things are a given, but doing them in comfort is another. When staying in a dorm at bikini hostel, comfort was not exactly a given. With the bottom bunk essentially on the floor you got the feeling you were couch surfing as opposed to... More

Plenty of scantily dressed...not even sure if they were guests or friends of staff there. Who knows?! Anyway the rooms are so basic and pokey but not offensive. Air-con works so that always helps. The guy who ran the night out selling tickets was very odd and I quote from several women: 'sleazy'...but not a game changer. Decent enough for... More

Seriously a hidden Gem, I feel like if more locals knew about this place it would be ridiculous. Some do, and they're cool and help out with anything u may have a question for. Pool/hot tub, good beers and cool ppl from all over the world. Adventure is here.

I stayed here for Christmas 2015. The hostel has a lot of amenities. Pool table, ping pong, bar, hot tub. The pool isn't really a pool tho so I wouldn't count that. The dorms are dirty and the beds are uncomfortable but not bad when you consider the price. If you want to stay for cheap this is the place... More

Great first impression when entering the reception! Staff were very welcoming and the facilities had a very relaxed bohemian feel to them. The spacious dorms were comfortable for everyone and the location was close to the beach, restaurants and nightlife. It has everything you will need during your stay. The best part is the environment and hospitality!
