My husband and I stayed here after our cruise ended in Miami. We reserved a private room for $99. The hostel is 2 blocks from the beach!!!
The linens, bed, television, wifi, bathroom, robes, decor and furniture were all great.
The front staff could be more friendly.
This hostel is full of a variety of travelers. The pool and outdoor gardens are nice with music, lawn furniture, and a bar to order drinks. The hostel has a variety of activities planned throughout the week and displayed in the front lobby.
Tip for going to the airport: If you want to take the bus walk down to the Triton Supermarket on Collins avenue and watch for the bus number 150 AIRPORT FLYER. On the weekdays it comes approximately every 30 minutes. The website for miami transit is easy to navigate. It costs $2.50 per person (the hostel staff told us wrong). (There are rails within the bus to hold your luggage.) You may use exact change or buy a ticket from walgreens. The bus ride is about 15 minutes without traffic. It will drop you off at the Miami metrorail/metrobus station. Once you get out of the bus, follow signs for the AIRPORT and keep walking. It will take you to the Miami Mover light rail car which takes you to the airport. This little rail is free, no need to buy a EASY ticket.
Tip if going to beach: Change into your swimsuit before walking over there. I walked for many blocks on the boardwalk and never found a public restroom. No alcohol on the beach allowed.
Tip for a quick bite: Walk 1 block to Triton supermarket on Collins Avenue and get a plate full of home-cooked latin themed food for super cheap!!!! In the mood for awesome breakfast and coffee? the tropical beach cafe nearby has amazing food for super cheap. Get the cuban coffee or cafe con leche and you will not be disappointed.
