Just think about it, the hotels neighboring you are a couple hindered a night, if not way more. There's famous Mangos a few doors down, and all sorts of bars, it's a party every night! Location is key, and the Deco Walk Hostel has this right on point. Cons: From my experience - The bathrooms could be cleaner, and maybe... More

I dunno if it was because their English was so bad or because they were just plain rude but I did not enjoy staying in this hostel. The workers just made me feel so uncomfortable. they mentioned a roof top??? I never got near it because I felt like the workers watched your every move and didnt tell us anything.... More

I wouldn't recommend staying here for more than a day or two, everything's pretty much broken (hot tub, beds, tvs, air conditions) I'm a laid back guy and even I found this place repulsive. For one or two nights its bearable but no longer. Ps. They give u one sheet and a sad excuse for a pillow so prepare to... More

This hostel was worth the value, it was really cheap, the room and bathroom was clean and the location couldn't have been better. It is located in the art deco district right next to the beach, so you can't ask for a better location. It comes highly recommended in my book.

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights during my first (solo) trip to South Beach. Very inexpensive, met great people that come through to stay at the place. Right on Ocean Drive close to everything you can imagine. Perfect location. Everything was great for the price. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that is into staying in... More

This was my second hostel experience, and in comparison to Hostel International, it failed miserably. Parties in the hallway every night, loud music from clubs next door, 1 bathroom to share in dorm, small common area and not great customer service. Would not stay here again or recommend. Although if you're looking to party all night and hardly be in... More

On paper, the place has a lot going for it: the location is the Ground Zero of SoBe right on Ocean Drive; it's actually very quiet at night with the rooms being off the street toward the back of the building (and perhaps the always-on A/C is a contributor to noise cancellation, and a good one...); the place is clean;...
