“Great for Price”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

I really don't think that you can beat this hostel's price on Ocean Drive for the price. The staff really tried to make sure that my football team was all accomodated. It was kind of unorganized but the staff handle everything to the best of their ability. Belinda, Patricia, Mike, and the gentleman who handled the food. The Charlotte Colts would like to thank you for everything you did for us. We will definitely be back

We booked seven nights at this hostel on our holiday to Miami, but we left after 3 because it was totally awful. The rooms are tiny and not clean at all. Two nights in a row a bunch of unknown people where sent into our rooms just to party, smoke weed and sniffing cocain. It was impossible to sleep, and the staff didn't care to help us out at all. They were unbelievably rude and incompetent. Some even called the coops, but it was just back to the same next day. It ruined our holiday completely, and we had to use a lot of money on a different hotel. Do not book here!!!

Room Tip: Don´t book here. There are a lot of other better places around.

Arrogant and rude staff. A breakfast included which would barely feed a starving child. I have stayed at hostels in America, Europe and Australia and this is by far one of the worst experiences ever. The only good thing I can say about it is the location so if you got absolutely no standards what so ever - this is your place.

Room Tip: Tip: stay out of this one!

The hotel is well situated just near the beach. Also, it has a rooftop that is good to enjoy a sunny day.However, the staff was really rude, and the rooms were the worst I've ever seen. 12 in a ridiculously small room, with only 1 bathroom inside for everyone. When you don't know anyone, such a crowded environment is not good. There are 3 floors of bed, which I had never seen before and the upper beds are not safe at all. No space at all to take the so called "breakfast".
Just go to this hostel if you want cheap price and not a clean environment.

I liked the hostel, the staff is very friendly, they always have good plans for party and different options too. The location is great too and is just across the beach. The food is good considering what you pay for it. Clean rooms too and secure.

The location is fantastic. You are right on Ocean Drive and all you had to do is cross the street and you are on the beach.

When I booked this hostel it described our room as private however a few days after I booked it we learned we had to walk through another groups room in order to get to ours. Also we shared a bathroom with this other group. This would have been okay except there was no shower curtain around the tub so EVERYTHING was perpetual wet.

Also the "wall" separating the two rooms stop short of the ceiling by a foot so sound travelled quite easily.

Besides this, for the price of staying in south beach and the convenience of it's location is was an okay experience. There is a kitchen and hot tub we never got around to using but those could make a travelers experience better.

Room Tip: Just be forewarned that the "private" rooms may not be very private
