FIrst of all, yes, it is a hostel AND hotel, so, it's a hostel with private rooms (with private bathrooms!)...there are, in the common area, a kitchen and a pool (very good, both of them, but, of course, COMMON).
There are renewed and non renewed rooms...the first ones are ok, the latter, not so much. Shower is from bad to ok...cleaning is not perfect also...the carpets are old. Well, it's an old hotel...like all the other ones in South Beach (except the over 300 usd ones, maybe).
Location is fabulous - 100m from the ocean, 200m from lincoln road mall, 200m from espanola way, 30m from the cheapest public parking in miami beach. So, fantastic.
If what you're looking for is a honest, good priced hotel (and hostel), on a fantastic location, you've found it...
Stayed there about 4 times and will be back. In Miami, for me, only tropics. Unbeatable cost effectiveness...
