“Disgusting.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I wouldn't recommend staying here for more than a day or two, everything's pretty much broken (hot tub, beds, tvs, air conditions) I'm a laid back guy and even I found this place repulsive. For one or two nights its bearable but no longer. Ps. They give u one sheet and a sad excuse for a pillow so prepare to get a bad sleep. The employees come right into your room whenever they want without knocking or anything so privacy is completely out of the question.

Room Tip: Rooms farther down the hall are better layout

this place is in a perfect location and offers the basics for its guests. it is a great value and in a prime location for tourists wanting to visit ocean drive. i arrived late friday night to a nice, friendly and entertaining vibe. met some cool people from usa and abroad staying here. lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby as well. i

Room Tip: ask for rooms further from lobby if you want quiet.

This hostel was worth the value, it was really cheap, the room and bathroom was clean and the location couldn't have been better. It is located in the art deco district right next to the beach, so you can't ask for a better location. It comes highly recommended in my book.

Room Tip: They are dorm rooms, but if you can get the one at the front of the building (male) you get nice vie...

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights during my first (solo) trip to South Beach. Very inexpensive, met great people that come through to stay at the place. Right on Ocean Drive close to everything you can imagine. Perfect location. Everything was great for the price. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that is into staying in hostels. If you are a hotel/private person you will not like this place. If you love getting to know great people from all over the world, and want to be at the center of everything in South Beach, then this place is for you! LOVED MY EXPERIENCE. As a young (22) woman vacationing solo, I felt very safe and secure here.

This was my second hostel experience, and in comparison to Hostel International, it failed miserably. Parties in the hallway every night, loud music from clubs next door, 1 bathroom to share in dorm, small common area and not great customer service. Would not stay here again or recommend. Although if you're looking to party all night and hardly be in your room, then this is the place for you.

On paper, the place has a lot going for it: the location is the Ground Zero of SoBe right on Ocean Drive; it's actually very quiet at night with the rooms being off the street toward the back of the building (and perhaps the always-on A/C is a contributor to noise cancellation, and a good one...); the place is clean; stylishly (though cheaply) furnished in the common area; the kitchen is modern and clean; there's even a rooftop deck.

However, after spending two night here I went back to a dirtier, noisier, less clean hostel with perhaps one of the world's worst kitchens! Why, you are probably thinking... makes no sense...

Answer: The Invisible Element: "Atmosphere!"

At least in my limited two-day experience, the place was totally devoid of any character or ambience. Even roommates didn't seem to communicate very much among one another, the common areas had a stiff coldness even though they looked nice, and the cleaning lady definitely had control issues! I think her previous position must have been at an incarceration facility. Then the same cleaning lady serves you breakfast, which they've since extended I understand, but it closed too darn early for anyone running on SoBe time! And when things were being tightened up already at 5 past the hour, I went to grab a mini muffin that still lay unclaimed, only to be beat to the punch by the cleaning lady herself who promptly stuffed it into her mouth upon eyeing my intentions, lol! What a story, though! First time I've ever seen such a thing! I imagine anything left after the bell rings goes back home with her or something, lol!

Room Tip: Don't book multiple nights in advance as it's non-refundable once you fork over cash, and I...
