“The facility is good for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

- Not enjoyed the stay but it did not about the facility
- Good for party people. You gonna love it if you love parties, parties,parties ,flirting , people and so on ( you know what I mean)
- No quiet hours though so you can have fun all the time.
- The dorm room has enough space for 6 people with a kitchen and one bathroom. However, it depends on how your roommate(s) is/are
- Near the SBL bus stop: it is just in front of the hostel. 25 cent! around the SObe
- Near the metro bus stop too, easy to take the S bus to downtown and Jungle island

I cant actually say enough good things about this hostel. It is such good value for money, i paid around $100 for six nights. That included a free bagel for breakfast. There was a hot tub, swimming pool and great socializing area outside the hotel which made it really easy to meet people. The hostel also organised nights out and a free BBQ. It is perfect if travelling alone or with friends.

We had a great time staying at the bikini hostel during the month of June. It was exactly what we could have asked for and my friend had an amazing time at his bachelor party there. We hope to come back there soon in the future.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you want to stay in South Beach at all costs, this is probably one of the cheapest places you'll get. The busstation of the South Beach Local (a ride costs only 25 cents per person) is located in front of the building, a whole food market is nearby and it takes you only 15-20 minutes to walk to the beach. On the other hand it is still very pricy (compared to North Beach), the rooms are tiny and cleanliness is only ok. Some staff members are friendly others not really.
To sum it up: if you stay in SB for only some days and if you are on a thight budget, the place might be ok (specially on weekends). Otherwise we would suggest to stay somewhere at North Beach, where you get better standard for less money

Awful experience. The Wi-Fi never worked in the room; you have to go outside to the patio to get some signal. The bathroom wasn't working right, and the worst is the staff. OMG!!! I can't believe how rude they are; never show me the property or said the amenities. I have to ask all the time for something. WORST hostel experience EVER!!!
