staying in this hostel was realy a dissapointment, mainly due to the following: - staff was rude&snobbish(at least one girl) - have stayed in so so many hostels, but never paid 4$ for EACH bag to keep in luggage storage. normally this kind of service is free - room was smelling like old hospital - wifi only in lobby, not in rooms from the good side: perfect location!. I do not recommend this hostel for staying. In Miami we also stayed in Freehand hostel - much better choice!

The hostel REFUSED me upon arrival, due to my holding an American Passport, despite the fact that I live in the UK, despite my having a reservation and having already paid money. I arrived late a night , and was told that they do not allow American passport holders to check stay in their hostel. I had no other place to stay, and the staff refused to assist me in any way. There merely said, it is management policy, and not their problem. I found SOBE Hostel later that night. SOBE is Great!

STAFF are all great...kind and curteous. CLEANLINESS: really good SECURITY: A couple of the folks who stay there are locals LIVING IN MIAMI and are down on there luck? It's a problem for security for everyone.

Probably the rudest reception staff I've ever faced during my travels. It felt like no-one there enjoyed their work and every guest noticed their bad mood. Very stupid rules as well... Closing kitchen at 11 pm. What is that!? False advertising also about the facilities of kitchen. Cooking with microwave only is just ridiculous. Those pancakes they call "breakfast" is not real breakfast. Who wants to have something sweet as soon as they wake up?? Clearly won't recommend this place for anyone.

I had a great time there. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. The localization is great! Rooms and other facilities are great for the price. You probably won't get anything better for this values..

Great hostel and location, helpfull staff and kind. we book on a 12 bed room and it was clean but with no chance to open a single window to change the air on the room, all of them were seal. There was an AC working all day and thats the only way you have to get fresh outside air. Another BAD thing.. we spend a week on the hostel and the kichen stove was not working and it seems that was in that way for a long time ago. The guys on the hostel didnt seems to matter about that.

Staff really good...good location, better kitchen then many hostels have. Cleanliness, showers etc...pretty good. Safes in lobby, are great, but not cheap. NEGATIVE: Insecure lockers in rooms. Many hostels do NOT allow folks WITH LOCAL ID'S in the hostel & may only let folks stay for a week. Here, folks can get in with local ID's down on thr luck &stay there for up to 20 days or more! Some folks borrowing cigs, cell phones etc. OTHERWISE I WUD RECOMMEND.

The location of this hostel is awesome! 2 blocks from a nice beach and just a few blocks from where everything is going on in south beach. The staff is not particularly what is considered friendly (at least not at our first stay there), not really motivated to help at all and everything took them like forever. Don't know if I would go back...would probably try another hostal...

Were told rooms would have lockers however my room did not. We were also told we would be placed in the same room however when we got there were all separated. Great location and a nice atmosphere, good for young people and party/social life. My friends and i had lots to do! The deals they do for day packages to the Everglades etc is fantastic as they are cheap in comparison to everywhere else. The staff were relatively polite but never too smiley or friendly which i feel let the place down.

I loved this hostel! It's my first American hostel and I was definitely impressed. There's a nice common area with free wifi that you can hang out in/meet other people. I got moved to an 8 bed dorm for the price of a 12 bed which was nice, because the 8 bed was definitely preferable. Great environment overall within the hostel! The staff was amazing, very helpful and fun! Perfect location. Good bar crawls/excursions offered that you can book in the hostel. Overall, was a wonderful hostel!

Interesting people were staying in the hostel during my visit but overall a good stay. Great location just 2 blocks from the beach. There's a small market just a few doors down to the left of the hostel. Great shopping and nightlife just a few blocks away as well. There is only one bathroom per room so I recommend not staying in the 12 bed dorms. But I really enjoyed my stay overall! Pub crawls every night. Kitchen facilities. Great location.
