“Best place to stay for young travelers in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Great hostel! The staff was awesome! Friendly and helpful! We stayed in an apartment with four beds a few blocks from the hostel. It had a parking spot, great for people on a road trip. It was not expensive. The hostel it self might be a bit noisy to people staying in rooms close to the lobby, but the apartment building was nice and quiet. The hostels has outings and parties pretty much every night, and going out with them is a lot of fun! Great international environment were you can meet a lot of new people from all over the world. No problem making new friends! The hostel has free food, breakfast, lunch and dinner, for hostel guests. The food was good!

Room Tip: If you want to sleep more, choose a room in one of the hostels apartment buildings. Stay in the dorm...

Extremely fun place to stay and meet loads of people and friendly staff. Targeted strongly at enjoying the nightlife of Miami beach but no pressure to do so. Was a good base to explore Miami and surrounds. A big thanks to John for making it a great stay.

This was my first stay at a hostel. Very interesting and a lot of fun! I was a little older (39) than most of the guests, so I was content to go to a hotel after two nights at the hostel. However, that isn't a reflection on the hostel. I slept well and felt reasonably safe. I was able to bond and spend time with my roommates, who were really cool! Free breakfast, lunch and dinner and a $15 VIP entrance along with transportation to the club of the night were nice perks. The only thing I didn't like about it was that there was no party bus back to the hostel. I would definitely recommend this place! Especially, if you are young and in South Beach to party! The only suggestion that I have, is that staff not party with the guests. We need for you guys to be completely conscious of what's happening!

Stay here of you really want an awesome party nightlife (hostel boys bring guests out to VIP parties and limo party buses). Close to the beach. Nice atmosphere. Free and really delicious meals made by Mama. Friendly staffs like John and Kouki rock socks! Close to the beach. The perfect hostel.

This place has amazing staff. That is the first thing I noticed about it. It is run by people who love their jobs, who are professional, very helpful and who like to hang out with international people. Whatever I needed, I asked and got it. They want you to feel like at home, and in my case, they surely succeeded.

I stayed here with a friend in a six-bed female dorm room. The room is really basic. It is well air-conditioned, has its own bathroom, and is very clean. It is cleaned twice a day. The beds are old, the sheets are not stunning, but everything is clean, and that is really the most important. You are not going to spend that much time in the room anyway.

The hotel lobby is always full. There is free Internet in the lobby, hostel guests are allowed to bring their own food, their own drinks, and drink/eat at the hotel lobby, or outside, or buy cheap drinks at the hotel itself. The liquor store is just around the corner. The best pizza in the whole world is at the corner (Rustic Pizza). Food at the hotel is free of charge! They serve all three meals, on the "first come, first serve" basis. Breakfast is a continental breakfast, which I am not a huge fan of anyway, but lunch and dinner are delicious. Lunch is usually some pasta, and dinner is more substantial. Mamma is doing great job making delicious food :)! So, you pay about $30 for accommodation and free all three meals.

Hotel staff always organize something for the guests: every evening they offer free or at discount tickets for popular Miami Beach clubs, sometimes they offer free beer in the lobby, etc.

You can take anything you need for the beach for free: sun umbrellas, balls, and other things you can use on the beach for fun.

And, I have to mention the location. Just two blocks away from the Miami Beach. Perfect, really.

If you are traveling on a very tight budget, if you want a place with a great location, lots of interesting young people, lot of fun and on top of that you want to feel like at home - this is the way to go.
