“Awesome hostel. Perfect location. Stay at Posh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Perfect hostel for anyone!
The staff are very friendly and always happy to help.
It's such a relaxed, fun environment! Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in.
The open rooms are an awesome concept, but you still get the privacy everyone wants once in a while.
I couldn't have nicer things to say about it.

Good Afternoon TA2912,

We love positive feedback and we really appreciate you taking your time to post yours!!! We are in the heart of South Beach, just a walk away from all the hot spots. Our kitchen is very big for everyone to be able to use! We do indeed provide a computer area for our guests to use the WiFi- all free of charge. :) Our staff is always eager to assist you and I am very glad that is what you experienced as well!! I will definitely let the mentioned staff know about your wonderful praise! They love to hear what our guests have to say about them!

There are a few hostels in the vicinity of Posh at half the cost and they are closer to art deco and the beach. This one looks nice inside and out, but noise blasting from Spanish language TV all night long reverberates throughout the dorm because of the absence of textiles or furniture to absorb sound. Bathrooms are so small that a grown adult can barely sit and close the door. Worse, they rip off their customers by charging an extra $50 to their credit card in addition to the cost of the room. Check options!

Hello Devastavit,

Thank you for your honest feedback on Trip Advisor for all of our future guests to read! I am sorry that you did not have an amazing time while staying with us! Taking into consideration that not everyone wants to be close to Art Deco, our hostel is definitely high end and one of a kind. We are in the heart of South beach, within walking distance to all of the hot spots here. The layout of our hostel is very spread out, for our guests convenience. Our bathrooms are a bit small but it's big enough for an adult to fit, sit and close the door. We don't charge an extra $50.00 to your card. What we do is take a $50.00 hold from your credit card for incidentals. This is to cover damages done to the hostel- if any. Your feedback is appreciated!

This was a very interesting hostel to stay at. Check in took about 15 minutes. I stayed in the forward dorm area underneath the common area. Their was a lot of noise at night with people coming and going so I would recommend bringing ear plugs. The locker storage area was very small in my opinion. All it is a slide out drawer below the bottom bunk and it did not hold much. Enough to keep your valuables ins and that’s about it. You could leave you suit case at the front of the bed if you wanted. The bathroom area I thought was rather small. The stalls are tiny and you had to squeeze by people if their was any one using the sinks. The pool area was really nice I thought, they usually didn’t put out towels till 11 or 12 but you could got to the hotel down stairs to get some. The location of the hostel is good as far as getting to beach and the nightlife. One thing they will not tell is the open bar at the hotel down stairs and the sister hotels. 7PM to 8PM every day. Final note make sure to reserve your spot on the shuttle to the airport. They start running at 7. If you need to get there earlier the local bus is only 2 blocks away and goes straight to the airport.

Good Afternoon Stephen,

Thank you so much for taking your time to post your feedback on Trip Advisor for all of our future guests to read! I am glad that you had a good time while staying with us! There does tend to be more noise in hostels as there are many people in the same room. They are all up to different things- moving around, talking, coming in and out, etc. I am sorry that you were not satisfied with the space to store your belongings inside of. I see that you had a great time at our pool area. It is a very nice spot to relax and soak up the Florida rays!! I will definitely make sure to inform the front desk to let all of our guests know about the complimentary cocktail hour that is included in your stay! It's a perfect way to mingle around and start the night off right! :) We hope that you would stay with us again, if returning to South Beach!

i never stayed in a hostel before but im glad Posh made my experience great, since i was kinda iffy about being around strangers. i loved the modern look to it. stayed in area with mostly all females which i liked and felt safe. LOVED the happy hour free drinks. Loved the quesadillas i ate at the bar. the location is PERFECT! a block away from the beach , mangos, wet willies and also fat tuesdays. also picked this hostel because it had free shuttle which is a must for me. Make sure you make reservations ahead of time if not you will be there waiting for it to clear through if you do the reservation on the free computer downstairs. the pool area is fabulous. great for tanning if you dont wanna go to the beach. . complimentary breakfast was ehhh. wasnt really organized so i didnt bother trying anything. this hostel is good from my experience. its best for travelers that want to enjoy south beach most of the time and just return to the hostel to sleep. i will be back!!!!
