“clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Unfortnately i'd stayed at another hostel the previous night and had done a trip to Key West which meant I didn't check in at the hostel til 2am ...went back out til 4am slept and then left at 10:30. Of course during this time i didn't get to experience much of the facilities but the staff were really friendly with a great sense of humour, the other guests were friendly, inviting me out as soon as i arrived, the room was comfortable and clean and the price was very fair. The location is great, right on Ocean Drive and 2 doors down from Mango's!

Room Tip: If you get the top bunk (they are stacked in 3's) mind your head when you wake up ;-)

I totally loved this place!! Location is awesome, right next to the beach and close to everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooftop with the bar and hot tub is wonderful!!! Super cheap drinks and you can get into clubs, etc. I don't think it was dirty at all. The lockers were a little small though. We stayed in a room with 12 beds but there was only 4 of us, all the other beds were empty so it wasn't too crowded.
I definitely recommend this hostel!!

This hostel is in a superb location. It has both an indoor communal bar area with an excellent view and also a roof terrace overlooking Ocean Drive and the beach. Could not get a more ideal location if you tried. It is very reasonably priced and i found the staff very helpful.

Downsides - the lift is quite dark, very hot and a little slow. The rooms are cramped, even by hostel standards and it was one shower between 10. If you don't mind that then definitely think about staying here,

This hostel has one of the best locations in Miami Beach, right in Ocean Dr.
During my stay the hostel was under reform. So there wasn't anything in the lobby, the bar was not working, the kitchen was closed and the rooftop area too. The elevator was presenting a lot of problems and the staff seemed to be not worried with the overall situation.
I stayed in a room with 3-story bunks, and you can be sure that is just for sleep, once you can't even seat in your bed if you're more than 6 ft.
The breakfast is OK.
Probably I won't be back there.

Hostel was being renovated to fit more beds at the time of stay (rooms are now stacked with 3-story bunks, with barely enough room). This meant there was no common area, the kitchen was closed, the rooftop pool and communal area was gone, there was no pool table, no laundry & basically nothing that was promised was there. Staff weren't particularly helpful with the exception of one guy on the desk. Breakfast is served in disposable polystyrene cups and plates sort of ration style creating a huge amount of unnecessary rubbish. Rooms are noisy due to location of clubs that can be heard until 4am every night.

Room Tip: For a good room, stay elsewhere

The good news is that we are under new management as of Feb 2013, the bad news may be that you may have witnessed one of our more ambitious day of getting everything done. We are all done with the full rennovation so all the amenities like the pool, our common area with wifi, inside and outside bar as well as the jacuzzi are ready for action!

Good hostel, especially for its location that is the reason why I put rate it very good.
Disappointed with the size of the lockers, very small and so, can't put your backpack in it, just the most important things.
Also, got disappointed with the attitude of the staff, they made a mistake on a booking for a tour and could not do it at the end because of their mistake. When there was still a little time to save it, no reactivity at all, no huge help and received apologize during the evening.
It is surely clean, the breakfast is fine and the location great, just cross the street to the beach!

The room was totally dirty, so was also the bathroom! I actually thought about leaving and looking for something other but I already had paid!
It happened twice that when I came to my room in the evening there was someone else sleeping in my bed. The management of the hostel is not able do conduct a list of their geasts in order to know who is using which bed!
Furthermore my own towel (quickdry towel) was taken away by the cleaning woman and they weren't able to find it any more!

All in all: AVOID THIS HOSTEL in order to have a beautiful vacation!
