My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room (water room) with a shared bath. The room was clean and the bed and linens were nice. We didn't do a lot at the hostel due to being in the keys all day both days but enjoyed the comfy bed and relatively quiet nights. A couple things... More

Stopped by on our way to the keys... we were able to pop up the tent and get a couple hours of sleep before heading out in the morning... such a cute little place.. had a quick shower.. very clean bathrooms! And make your own pancakes in the morning! Would totally come back if I'm ever around again

My husband thought it would be a neat experience for our family to stay in a hostel, but I don't think I would ever repeat it. "Linens" consisted of sleeping bags and sheets thrown in our arms. Bathroom had no soap and there was a sign that said not to flush toilet paper down!! You definitely need to be okay... More

We stayed in the small Nimby cottage which was perfect for us. A thoughtfully presented room with large bed and linen, bathroom with fluffy towels and a private kitchen area. We had access to all communal areas but could retreat to a private fresh water pool and sun loungers. The hostel volunteers and guests were all incredibly welcoming and friendly.... More

We stayed in a our tent in the garden and loved it (regardless of the somewhat cold February nights, as our hosts even provided us with an extra blanket). The friendly environment, good prices and the possibility to make your own panncakes in the morning as well as to chat with other travellers makes one feel very cosy and relaxed... More

I stayed at the hostel in a female dorm room. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I loved sitting around the main dining table, eating pancakes and socializing with people from all over the world. I can't wait to go back! The outdoor shower rocks! Traci

We stayed at the Florida Everglades Hostel while on a college service trip to the Florida Keys. Our stay was very nice. This little hostel was a refuge for the traveler, and a safe haven for the outsiders. The facilities have their own personality, and the staff/regulars a unique culture. We never felt threatened or endangered in any way, in... More

I booked a three night stay at this hostel and ended up only staying one night. Not because of the hostel but because of my roommates. I'm a light sleeper and tend go to bed early so I can start my adventures early. The lights in our room were left on until the last of us turned in for the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a private room, so I can't speak for the dorms. We had the "Earth Room", which was very cute and roomy. There were plenty of power outlets and the bathroom was right next door. The garden area is very nice but didn't have time to spend a lot of time there except for the... More
