I booked 4 nights and stayed 3 weeks!!! Home away from home, so modern and clean, with the pool is an advantage and the location is so close to modern Panama City. Pablo and Vicki are awesome, great hosts. STAY HERE!!!
Clean, safe area, friendly staff. Our room stunk badly from rubbish/compost outside, but that's not the staffs problem, just bad location of rubbish- window allowing smell in couldn't shut.
AWESOME LOCATION, great atmosphere, the feel of this hostel is great, friendly, homely sometimes a little loud at night, but it's a big of a party hostel which was always fun!
Location is great, got lower marks due to staff actually yelling at guests (without a valid reason, saw this one more than one occasion) My room was gross, rubbish was stuck to the floor, bed was o.k. Place needs an update...stay slightly further down the blvd for cheaper...and get much better quality!
Bathrooms have large amounts of excess water on the floor, which is probably guests fault, but it doesn't drain through the floor drain.
Hostel was in great location, friendly staff, and great dorms. Good size lockers, beds are comfortable, location makes it easy to walk anywhere in Northwest, or catch the bus elsewhere.
Hostel room smelt of mold really bad, floor was badly stains and the curtain was a sheet. Not a bad place to stay, just a little run down for the price you pay...SF is expensive, but you do expect a little more that stained floors, one shower per floor, when paying $36 p/night! Lockers are tiny, enough for a DSLR, and a notebook maybe, but won't fit a reg. laptop, no other lockers available, also they don't store luggage there, you have to store it 3 doors down at the bike rental place.
Extremely up kept, the bathrooms/bedrooms and social rooms are all clean, and in tack. I really like the feel of this hostel, no creepy people, no smells or strange stains. Would 100% stay again. Easy to get to transport or walk to museum district!
I can understand that since hurricane Katrina housekeeping has be scare, but the bathroom in my dorm was pretty bad, I cleaned part of it up. Security- actual hostel security was fine, but no lockers in the dorms, depends on your level of trust with people but I nor anyone else there at the time had any issues. Lots of locals living there which gives it a homely feel once you know them.
Atmosphere was good, breakfast is basic, rooms are clean enough considering there is sand everywhere- can't help that. Close to south beach, and transport as well has food, pharmacy, and movie theatre. There were some people that basically live there and tend to overrun the place. Staff were friendly! Would stay again.
Place was pleasant, close to everything, Great eats next door or within walking distance. Room was spacious and clean, nice enough decor. Annoying buzzing noise all the time, but that was something to do with next door!
Valve for money, friendly staff, great location with little convenience store attached, breakfast is a bit lame, but the indian restaurant is yummy. I extended my stay here and really enjoyed Orlando- Especially with universal studios so close.
Hostel was friendly place to stay, a couple staying at the same time had beer, food & a small travel pillow stolen, but the lockers in the basement are good. There are some long term people staying there on and off, but they are pretty interesting & add to the character of the place. Location is away from all the sites, but it's a very easy metro ride into the main centre, metro was safe, location felt a little dingy, but at no time did I feel unsafe. Washing machine didn't clean just filled!
