Great staff, just had annoying people(travelers) in the halls and coming in and out of the room I was in...so if you're looking for a good sleep it won't happen here unless you have respectful people around.. but overall it was a great atmosphere and location is great for where it is, close to some shops a short walk to the beaches...

Rooms are very small considering the amount of beds and then everyone's luggage, me and my friend were unlucky enough to be stuck with some very inconsiderate people who were always noisy. Bathroom light didn't work :/ location was very good as your only two blocks away from the beach :) they have lockers which was good meant you could leave your valuables :)

This Hostel is really good, I booked a private bedroom, the room was pretty clean, the bed was comfortable, there was a small refrigerator. the staff was helpful and the location is perfect, just few steps from the beach.

Staff extremely rude, hostel is advertised as a 'party' hostel but couldn't be further from the truth. No alcohol after 11 and u have to whisper in the lobby after 12. Staff pouring people's drinks down the drain etc. felt more like boarding school then a hostel. The promotor Ernesto was the only pleasant helpful person there. the location is good, only 5 mins from the beach. Other than that, there are better hostels in the area that are worth paying that little bit extra for!

It's the second time I stayed in this hostel. First time was five years ago. I came back because I knew what to expect. The location is great. Rooms are good too. Clean and big. Breakfast served in the morning. But don't expect great things. The pancakes are terrible... ;) The stuff is ok. Nice and helpfull but the stuff from 5 yeara ago was way way better. More fun and easygoing... The atmosphere was not that great... But still...I strongly recommend this hostel.

Met a lot of cool people while I was in the hostel. The room was really good and we had a good breakfast in the morning. The internet only worked in the main lobby and near the stairs in the second floor, and after 10pm we couldn't talk without being shushed, so definitely not a party hostel. But close enough to the beach. Doesn't have a place to park though.

Nice location and very cheap, but the bed was the worst bed I've ever sleeped in (and I've stayed at a lot of hostels)

The Hostel is in Collins Avenue, South Beach, near Ocean Drive; it's a wonderful place, near the beach and you have to pass the bridge to get to Miami center. The rooms are clean and the staff is polite. Greetings. Aldo Police

The hostel is very near the beach and you can find good places around to eat. Another good thing is the location on South Beach.

Spending some days in the Jazz Hostel is definitely a good idea. It's not only perfectly situated only some minutes away from beach in the middle of south beach and in the heart of the party area, but also the atmosphere was awesome! Unfortunately staff wasn't always that nice. Especially those who worked during the late evening and night. I can totally understand that they have to stand every day some drunk guys who just wann party and sometimes get too loud. But hey! It's a hostel, stay cool!

Definitely the worst hostel to stay in South Beach. The staff are extremely stupid and rude with the guests (especially the lady who stays at the front desk at night and the housekeepers). At 10 p.m. they expel all the guests from the patio and you are forbidden even to stay in front of the hostel. They say if you want to continue drinking you have to go away from the hostel. The rooms are dirty and are rarely cleaned by housekeepers. The beds are old and very noisy. Would not recommend!
