A well located, friendly hostel that provides all the standard amenities expected in a hostel. Location is brilliant. Be aware of the night club promotions they offer, where most hostels do this it's is generally a rip off provided to naive travelers. Still lovely place and friendly staff, really satisfied with my stay.

Staff were amazing - I arrived at like 2am and had to catch a bus at 6am the next day, the guy at the desk was so helpful and even booked a discounted cab for me and it arrived in 5 mins. The problem is this is South Beach the party scene so people and coming and going ALL NIGHT. The dorm light was constantly on all night from guys wandering back in from the clubs...so as long as you're ok with that this place is good value. Cheap and straightforward.

Best thing about the hostel is the location. Everything of interest in South Beach is in walking distance. Other than that there is nothing great about the hostel. Our room was dirty and full of old clothes, towels and food...that didn't belong to anyone in the room!! Beds are uncomfortable. A/c is very noisy. You have to pay for towels. Bathrooms are small and dirty. Most staff are unfriendly, except for 1 or 2. Wifi did not work great. Price is ridiculous for what you get...but this is Miami!

Really good hostel with minor flaws. I had a 12 person room and it was really small but the 4 man rooms where decent. Everyone has a locker but you need a padlock - not a big deal. Showers were OK nothing fancy but worked and were clean. Good atmosphere, friendly lots of people to hang out with and stuff on every night. If you don't want to go clubbing there are so many bars that you can have whatever night you want, I even ended up playing volleyball with a bunch of random people. 4.5/5 stars

The best thing beside from another hostel is they offer a free dinner for every guest. However, the room need more spaces. It's not a problem with more beds but it need more space also. Another thing is facilities condition. I stay on first floor and I've found that many men showers are out of order. By the way, because I'm bored of Miami city that's why I rating to this hostel very low. If we aren't considering in city. This hostel still keep characteristics of a "good" hostel.

Nights out organised by the hostel were good. Communal areas were always busy with people. Wifi wasn't great. Showers were a bit rubbish.

If you are looking a party hostel and safety, this is your best election. Near the beach and some clubs. The breakfast is not the best, but the dinner is good, and also they let you repeat. It is a good deal for the money that you pay. i absolutely recommend this hostel. it is easy meet people of all the world. For going out you must pay $10/20, depends the club, that incluides free drinks for 30 minutes, and the entrance to the club and the bus party.

The place was very good, but the music was too much. They had music in their bar inside until very late, which sounded in my room. And the problem wasn't about late night, the music started to sound at 7am very high. It was impossible to rest, and the room was very small for 8 persons. All the towels were ALWAYS dirty, and the bathroom smelled always to pee. They have a good free breakfast and dinner, and good prices for drinks. Good guests there, all youngs. You meet a lot of nice people

Pros: Excellent hostel if you want to party in Miami. I would recommend it for one, or maybe two days. They have free breakfast and dinner which is also nice. Cons: Terrible hostel if you want to relax or sleep. The beds are small and uncomfortable, the rooms are also small. The bathrooms are shared, uncomfortable, and sometimes dirty.

Cleanliness is good. There is not enough space in the dormitories to rest well. there is missing some infrastructure in the bathrooms and showers,for example coat hooks,etc.
