“Clean, comfy hostel except for the 3 stack bunks and 12 bed rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Overall, this hostel was good for our 2 day stay in miami beach.Great location - right across from the beach, smack dab on ocean drive. Dorms were clean, staff was friendly. Can't say much about the breakfasts because they had no cups left when I tried to get coffee and most of the food was done.I must say that with the new management they have turned the 6 bed dorms into 12 bed dorms. i booked a 6 bed dorm on hostelworld only to get there and see one room divided by a partition with 6 beds on each side, with only one bathroom! A few folks left because of this. Plus they had 3 stack bunks. I couldn't climb to the top bunk; it was just too high up...as in right up to the ceiling. I asked for another bed and they were happy accomodate me. Would visit again

Room Tip: Be specific and ask for a 6 bed dorm with it's own bathroom and if you cant climb to the top bun...

I have now stayed at this hostel twice during August and October, 2013. The location cannot be beaten, its right opposite the beach and just outside the hostel are bars, restaurants etc. Also very convenient to get to and from the airport by bus.
The top deck/bar area is fantastic, the place is clean, and the staff very helpful.
The only negative was that at times it was hard to get hold of cups or cutlery. Overall a great experience and I will definately stay again next time I am in Miami.

Being a first time solo female traveler, I was a little nervous but soon felt like home with friends at Deco Walk. The location is unbeatable (right across the road from the beach and next too places to eat and some very fun bars and clubs) and every single staff member is a pleasure to be around. The beds, common areas, rooms and bathrooms are all clean (and cleaned daily). Met some awesome people at the rooftop bar and parties. Everyone was friendly and ready to have a good time. Would recommend and can not wait until I return!

Room Tip: I stayed in a mixed dorm and was really happy with my experience. I did not find noise an issue at a...

a really cheap way to enjoy Miami, not the best backpacker around, but safe in all details. has a good location close to the main areas. just remember not to take alcohol into your room, staff will complain to you about it.

I spent weeks counting down down the days to hitting up miami. I simply couldn't wait to get to deco walk, and yell from the rooftop lmfao's famous words. How lucky were we to find a hostel promising to have it all?! Ocean views, dinner and continental breakfast, rooftop parties... the fun never ends at deco walk. When we arrived there was a large group of people gathered around the wall down the side of the hostel, they wish they had bagged a bed a deco walk hostel, I assumed. I was impressed then, and even more impressed after we made our way through. The alleyway was nothing compared to inside.... deco walk was a paradise of a never ending supply of towels blankets and pillows, bunkbeds, bagels, a spacy elevator, working showers, one day dinners and service with a smile. Our first night was by far my favourite, like vip's we stayed in the back building through a high-tech gate and away from the regular punters. That first night, we made friends in our sleep... literally. Deco walk is such a friendly place, the staff especially. After a few nights it felt like we were part of the team. Could have handed me a staff t-shirt and I would have known what to do! There's no place like deco walk. We'll be sure to come back and visit if we're ever in Miami!xo

Room Tip: Room 7!! It's got brand new locks, tried and tested. If you're a real daredevil you can book...

When looking to book a hostel in Miami, Deco Walk seemed like the obvious choice! Boasting Ocean front views and two meals included, for such a small price. How could we say no? After weeks of letting the excitement build we had very high expectations, and boy were they met! Our first night involved being led down through a lovely alleyway to a spacious room with an adequate number of mattresses, pillows and blankets. The staff helped us get settled in an offered their assistance with anything they could. They weren't rude at all and genuinely seemed interested in helping us. The next day we changed rooms as a few more friends decided to stay with us. Our new room was equally as nice with a door that didn't require staff members to climb over in order to open it. The breakfast was great with a large range of freshly toasted bagels! But the staff is where this hostel really shines. I'm not exactly sure what the hiring process is here but I think one of the requirements is to be a model. They also had the best sense of humor ;) After a few nights Deco Walk truely felt like home and it was so hard to leave knowing that the endless rooftop parties would carry on with out us. Miss you already! <3

I DO NOT recommend this hostel. At All. They still peoples' stuff.
Nobody likes to their stuff stolen. And i am no exception. And no matter what value it is, the matter should be taken very seriously.
In a matter of ten minutes, someone stole my bottle of soda.
When signaled to the management, they didn't care much about my concern. But instead made me look stupid for speaking out about "just a bottle of soda".
They didn't wanna go over the camera saying that it didn't need to be just for a "bottle of soda".
To me, it is a matter of principle. Not a matter of value.
Worse, it could be anyone. Employes or guests.
By not investigating by looking at the camera recordings, they agree to allow the same person to do the same thing all over again.
I am really pissed of and i will never return to that hostel.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about this. Not sure what transpired with your bottle of soda, but will take your advice to check the cameras. We would have been happy to replace your bottle of soda had we known.
