“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

I cant actually say enough good things about this hostel. It is such good value for money, i paid around $100 for six nights. That included a free bagel for breakfast. There was a hot tub, swimming pool and great socializing area outside the hotel which made it really easy to meet people. The hostel also organised nights out and a free BBQ. It is perfect if travelling alone or with friends.

We had a great time staying at the bikini hostel during the month of June. It was exactly what we could have asked for and my friend had an amazing time at his bachelor party there. We hope to come back there soon in the future.

If you want to stay in South Beach at all costs, this is probably one of the cheapest places you'll get. The busstation of the South Beach Local (a ride costs only 25 cents per person) is located in front of the building, a whole food market is nearby and it takes you only 15-20 minutes to walk to the beach. On the other hand it is still very pricy (compared to North Beach), the rooms are tiny and cleanliness is only ok. Some staff members are friendly others not really.
To sum it up: if you stay in SB for only some days and if you are on a thight budget, the place might be ok (specially on weekends). Otherwise we would suggest to stay somewhere at North Beach, where you get better standard for less money

Awful experience. The Wi-Fi never worked in the room; you have to go outside to the patio to get some signal. The bathroom wasn't working right, and the worst is the staff. OMG!!! I can't believe how rude they are; never show me the property or said the amenities. I have to ask all the time for something. WORST hostel experience EVER!!!

even after I left the hostel, I was going back all the time! loved the place and the people working there! the location is really good and it is really good value for the money you are paying.
they organise several events and nights out, so you have the chance to meet nice people while you are staying there.
