Great place, warm friendly staff. Very helpful in clarifying any questions with patience.

You could hardly move in the room; there was no room even for the suitcase. The bathroom was not clean filled with hair that remained there for days; further the smell in the room, room area and bathroom was not pleasant. The service was poor due to language issues. The location was the only positive thing going for this hostel.

Very good place to stay at Southbeach, from the airport very easy with the bus 150 for 2,35dolars. Close to everything and the staff is very nice. Richy is very helpfull. The breakfast is amazing, the wifi works well in the room but perfectly in the terrasse and the beds are very confotable. The only things they can improve is the security because anyone can come in the hotel, the principal door being open and sometimes no one insisde to check who is going in. And you have to share the bathroom

the staff is very friendly and the location is perfect - near to ocean drive and the beach, lincoln road and española way. but the rooms and hallways are smelly and the shared bathroom isn't clean as it should be. the rooms are very tiny and the first one i got had no window! i asked to change it and they were very kind in meeting my request.

The place was a little bit dirty, and the staff did not pay attention to the 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door.

I have been in many crappy places, but this is absolutely the worst. After the first night I woke up over a smashed cockroach that was probably murdered by me during my sleep. After complaining someone plucked it out of my bed, and there it stayed forever, among with two other. The place is a ruin. It stinks. No security at all. Price is outrageous. The drag-queen clerk walking around on robes gave me nightmares. Next time I will share a bench with any bum on the streets.

was a clean, safe hotel in a nice location, right near the beach. loses marks because some of the staff were rude, no wifi (none to even purchase) and no bathrooms in the room.

For this price it was definitely good, but some things are not quite good. For example the cleanliness is okay, but not that good. Also the noise in the night gets through the windows and also the air condition make it realy hard to sleep...

The hotel charged 13% more than it said on the website. Amount due +13% tax. The Hostelworld.com has false advertisement about the price.

The staff was nice and the location was awesome, very close to the beach and to the main sites in South Beach. The building was just a bit old and noisy at night. But it was worth it for the cheap price. Breakfast was great!
