Nothing to complain, good price, very clean, good staff service, location is great, nice bar in lobby. Wifi and air conditioning could be better. I didn't like I had to walk to the club when it supposed have a shuttle or something like that. But it was an excellent stay and I recommend.

Happy with everything during our stay, except the attitude of most of the staff. With the exception of Jose at reception who was lovely and one friendly barmaid, all the other staff were non communicative and either impassive or rude - they were either on their phones or had earphones on and did not like when we requested any assistance....

Great location,nice little bar in lobby of this hostel. Staff is friendly and very helpful with directions ect. Lots of young international visitors at this hostel when we were there. Nightly club excursions as well and only a block off the beach in a fairly quite area. I will return again to stay here in the future when visiting Miami.

First time in Miami and the hostel has a real party vibe to it. I came solo just for the beach, in a 4 share. Breakfast options were okay bagel, banana with a choice of coffee or juice. 5 min walk from south beach, they organise parties every night a great way to meet people. They also have options to...

This was my first experience of a Hostel in the USA. Overall it was a fine place to stay and I would reccommend any backpacker travelling through Miami to check this place out. Very reasonably priced and the breakfast is delicious. Also, the resteraunt next door offers well priced and healthy food. It's very close to the beach and within... More

Also I must resaltar the exellent security risk from the hostel and organization. congratulations to... More

I have stayed in several hostels before this one, but this was by far the worst experience. The beds were supremely uncomfortable (metal springs in the mattresses that dug into you as you slept). The wifi hardly ever worked which made checking email and doing some work I needed to get done difficult. They have two computers in the lobby,... More

Stayed here back in August/September 2012. I was very weary about staying in a hostel, but it was brilliant! The place was kept very clean and fresh towels were given when requested. Great location, just a short walk to the beach, which was ideal! Everyone staying there was very friendly too! I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone over 30,... More
