Modest hostel in the super central location of Collins Avenue. Close to the night life of Espanola Way and Lincoln Road and 5 minutes walk far from the beach. The rooms are quite spacious and equipped with private bathroom where towels are changed daily. There is also the possibility to use an outdoor kitchen (common to all the guests). This... More

We changed from another hostel and asked if we could see the rooms first before we book which was no problem for the very friendly staff. Everyone gave us tips and recommendations, everyone was friendly and so nice to us, so if you are in Miami, go to the tropics. You meet people from everywhere in the world you can... More

I went to Miami Beach without a reservation so I walked in several low end hotels priced at 100 -130 per weekend night (half of that on weekday) and they were all run down. This one was just a little cheaper than other hotels in this range and carpet, beds were not something to love. But three others I visited... More

We were at this hotel some months ago with 2 friends for 5 days. The hotel has great location on Miami Beach near to the beach. Price was average, rooms were clean. Every guest can use the kitchen in share room. Free wifi at reception.

I booked this hotel for it's location through the QANTAS web site. The pictures shown are greatly, greatly exaggerated. In all my travels the past 30 years, this has been the worst I've ever seen. It should not be on the QANTAS web site. It was filthy. The walls were paper thin. We walked in - we walked out. I... More

I liked this place, since I was staying 12 days I had to make the option on choosing a budget hotel or have zero spending cash, the other hotels in the area were around 300$ a night. Miami is expensive, not a shocker it does have the most billionaires per capita. The Staff were all friendly. The Pool, lounge and... More

Great location and service but the bed is a disgrace. $120 for a night where we can't sleep as we have springs sticking into us and it sags.(room 308), give it a miss. Pool area is great and close to the beach but sleeping is important with a young child
