Greta place ,clean well attended

Staff were the best thing about this hostel. All very knowledgable and helpful. The location was great, the bar was also excellent with really cheap happy hour specials. Only really issue was the beds which were pretty uncomfortable. You could feel the springs in each one. Also the air con in the bar and rooms was too unnecessarily high. It was the middle of winter and not particularly warm when I was there. Overall though this is a good hostel that I would recommend.

The breakfast was a bit small and unvariable

Nice welcome drink!

The bathroom is very dirty, they should clean it more often. Restrooms are weird cause the toilets are so close to the door. When you use the toilet, your knees will be touching the door. You cannot adjust the temperature of the air conditioner in the room, and they set the temperature so low that you can easily catch a cold during sleep. Wifi is only available in the super noisy common area. The location is excellent as the beach is very close, and the staff are nice!

Pretty cool people and nice place

Walk in through the lobby after 8pm and it's a party scene with loud dubstep/pop/electronic/house music playing. Definitely a party hostel and you will meet a lot of people from all over the world. Literally right by South Beach and public transport is pretty accessible. Staff is nice and facilities are good.

Place was just average-serves its purpose -lounge area was pretty awesome including bar inside with good drink specials, computers, free wifi, plasma screen t.v.'s and plenty of leather couches-didn't like the bathroom facilities to the point that I didn't like using them, -rooms were not small and beds were o.k.- breakfast which is Included was good though and a real international environment in regards to the people you will meet- place was just average with dingy bathrooms-

Very good hostel. It was my first experience in a Hostel and I must say I don't regret. Two blocks away from the beach, walking distance from restaurants, wall green, bestbuy... I totally recommend

the noise of the guests partying in the kitchen after the 10pm is terrible, I could not sleep for 2 consecutive nights in room 102 for it

Very good location, easy to get there from airport on bus. Bar was nice. Rooms are small and cramped but that should be expected at a hostel.

Bathrooms need to be cleaner .. and staff to check on things as they go bad .. (like a soap dispenser that was broken) .. or just cleaner floors ... overall the cleanliness was ok though

It's too loud and its difficult to sleep sometimes. The bedrooms are really really small. The bathrooms are clean and quite nice. The kitchen, however, is so small and has not enough supplies for cooking. The place was packed and the common rooms were not enough for the amount of people.
