This place has more of a hotel feel then hostel. The bar is a cocktail bar more locals and is pretty exapensive. i would not stay here if you want to meet fellow travellers, more Americans then travellers
Nice place to stay. Beds are really comfortable and dorms a nice size! Careful of the bar, it can get really expensive ($6 for a small bottle of water) but if you want a casual drink at the end of the night it's handy. Pools good, but opens quite early when we went (6pm). It was good for us that it was out if the hustle of Ocean Drive but it does mean either a 2 mile walk there and back or a $9 cab.
This place is seriously impressive. Great vibe, great look and they have an awesome cocktail bar, pool and garden.
Fantastic value for money Excellent location - walking distance to south beach, and on the same road as other fancy hotels Good facilities, would recommend

This is a beautiful hostel. The poolside picture I took inspired envy with my friends back home. I'd never stayed at a hostel before and it completely shattered my negative preconceptions of hostels. It's essentially a hotel where you have to stay in a room with strangers. My only disappointment was that I couldn't buy their T-shirt because the bar was closed when I checked out! I'd definitely stay there again.
The hostel was amazing! Definetly the best in Miami. We really enjoyed our stay!
Felt more like the only thing making this place a hostel were the bunk beds. Excellent place in terms of value for money and the beds and facilities were amazing. Only downfalls that we could see was that it was located a bit away from the main hustle and bustle of south beach and the bar at the hostel was open to the public and run separately so you didn't really mingle with the other people staying there as you would normally. Would definitely recommend though
This place can't seem to decide whether it is a hotel or a hostel.... ***Pros***: Good sized swimming pool (even if it is disgustingly warm...) room was decent size and clean, close to the beach
They definitely should clean the dorms and WC. I mean, not just take off the trash of the basket. We complained but the staff didn't care much.
