We stayed as a family group in The Library room. It was clean and quiet and had a moving library ladder! What is more interesting are the grounds. As far as we could tell Florida City is fairly ordinary but a good starting point for the Everglades. However the backyard was extraordinary with a treehouse and hammock...a natural spring / plunge pond and several lounge areas. This was fairly surreal and a great adventure for the kids. The staff were really friendly and it felt like we had droppped into a house party rather than a hostel. The kayak tour was expertly guided and we saw Gators and crocodiles close up. If we had known how cool this place and the Everglades were we would have stayed longer. If like us you are not "hostel" people fear not. The rooms are good clean and aircon..though you can crash or stay in a dorm if you prefer. Just note you make your own pancakes and tidy up after yourself here....this isn't South Beach...but that's no big deal. A real gem.
