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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My friend and I stayed at Deco Walk for 3 nights while visiting South Beach. I have to say the location can't be beat, especially for the price. Right across from the beach in the middle of all the action on Ocean Drive and much cheaper than a hotel in the same area. I thought the rooftop bar/lounge area was... More

Even though there were 12 of us in 2 six bed rooms, I had a great time. Yes, there is only one bathroom for 12 people but it did not pose a problem. Everyone was courteous and did not hog the bathroom. The ages of the woman was 20 years old up to 71 years old. One of the women... More
