“Awesom stay in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed the stay in Bikini Hostel. Location is pretty nice. If you like to walk around the city this is gonna be best for you. 10 minutes walking to Ocean drive and bus local station across the West str. Nice 4 bedroom with A/C and nice bathroom. Price is really nice for economy trip. Clean sheets and towels. Nice refreshing swimming pool. Front desk person was very helpful! Cindy and Nicole THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I have stayed in Hostels a lot when I was a student, This is the best!!!

The atmosphere of the hostel was amazing as everyone who worked there was lively and helpful.
Room was slightly dirty (the floors) and the mattresses were really thin. But they provided lockers for you to lock her valuables!
Toilet was really decent & looked recently renovated.
Main lobby area was really nice. Most customers hung out there.
Events were held nightly (i.e club night, games night) so it was always fun!
Free breakfast was delicious; comes w a bagel, cream cheese, jam, fruits and coffee.
Location was pretty good as well! A short walk to the beach.
Would recommend(:

- 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.
