When I stayed here in may it was after a fairly extensive trip around the US and Canada. Id stayed in my fair share of hostels by then, and this one was up there with the best of them(this is a hostel, not a hotel as this trip adviser entry seems to suggest!). Fun, friendly staff who seem to be at the desk 24hours (sometimes having a snooze but i dont blame them!) which was handy for us given our early morning flights out. The english guy working at the front desk when i was there was great, giving us discounts for ladies nights at local bars and on the discount entry list for one of the big clubs, Mansions (anyone who has gone out in South Beach knows that entry can get pretty pricey so getting a discount was well worth it!). He also knew the staff at alot of the other hostels, and organised it so groups can chime in on activities. There is a great rooftop deck/patio where the hostel hosts cheap BBQ's and you can get cheap drinks in the bar in the lobby, AND free breakfast in the mornings if you're up early enough. The rooms were air-conned with full size ensuites attached and were so big that my friend and i really didnt feel we were sharing with 6 other girls, except when it came time when everyone wanted a shower! The location couldnt be better, with the beach right across the road (complete with the cast of jersey shore when we were there!), the main south beach strip just downstairs and shopping, clubs and restaurants a short walk away (and no, it really wasnt as noisy as i expected and we were there on weekend nights too!) All in all, basically awesome! I would stay here again in a heartbeat and urge everyone to do the same!
