This is being advertised as a party hostel, which I thought was great as I was travelling alone I wanted to meet people. WRONG! I walked in wondering where I was. There was about 3 or 4 guests sitting around the outside area, possibly because it was brighter and cooler than the rooms, and they were all eyeballing each other, not saying a word. Then I walked past a man who was sitting at the bar eating a bowl of cereal (turned out that was the manager and by bar I mean a piece of wood with a fridge behind it, they don't actually serve drinks there). When he did let me checkin I was taken back out the front gate and in the gate next door, up some tiny stairs and to a room where, if it wasn't for the street lights, would have been pitch black.
The whole place had a dirty vibe to it. I kept my thongs on the whole time and felt cleaner if I avoided the shower.
Luckily I was only there for 2 nights. I arrived late the first night and was up and out of there early the next morning, spending the whole day on hop-on hop-off busses and drinking with the staff at the Hard Rock Miami (so I thankfully don't remember the second night).
Overall was the worst place I stayed in my whole trip and made Miami a bit of a downer for me.
