Gorgeous building and lovely dorms, well maintained. Shame about the staff. Despite discussing it in person a couple days before, the staff managed to stuff up my booking which the owner actually growled me for when I checked in. Highly unprofessional and completely off putting. Very quiet atmosphere otherwise, which is nice if that's what you're after.

BED BUGS. The staff have no clue how to get rid of them so don’t get your hopes up. The staff reaction was unacceptable - they laughed, called me stupid and argued that it wasn’t bed bugs despite the evidence (other hostellers actually got a photo of one) , one manager was apologetic but told me that there were only bed bugs on the terrace (this is not a new problem). I was bitten in my dorm. Ignoring that, the hostel is kind of boring. Better places to stay in the city for the same price.

Convenient for the train locale, but a wee bit of a hike to the beach and old city. The AC in dorms is always stupidly contentious, and the bathrooms have zero air so get stinky hot. The hostel does put on neat social events every night in their downstairs dungeon, which makes meeting other hostellers easier. Not much character to the place, but its reasonably cheap.

Hello, thanks for your review. I am sorry if you didn't realize or misunderstood but we do have free lockers in every room. They work with a 2 euro coin which is returned when you put the key back into the locker. I hope you had a nice stay even with this problem and that we´ll see you in the future.

Wasn't wowed, particularly considering how well this place is rated. Awesome location (but most of the Dublin hostels are in the same area) for partying and reasonably priced. The bed allocation system is rubbish and leads to continuous middle-of-the-night mix ups, confused staff and upset travellers. The dorms are cramped (and thusly stinky), but clean. People only seem to hang out in the common room to watch movies, so it's not the best place to meet others and the best events (walking tour an

A neat, chill hostel. Supremely clean with very helpful friendly staff. Bit pricey, and the rooms have absolutely no ventilation, which means that those mixed dorms get pretty rank very quickly. Also a bit lacking in the number of toilets and showers available.

The check in process is bizarre, but that's sorted in the first ten minutes of your stay so doesn't matter. This is fantastically cheap for a nice bed, real sheets, clean bathrooms, and use of a kitchen. Not the best common area or good if you're looking for a very rowdy social time; but an awesomely quiet and secure place to sleep.

Thank you for praising our prices and amenities. ==COMMON AREAS== We are a small hostel, so the common areas can be close quarters when all the rooms are full, but most guests find their stay to be pleasant. ==TESTIMONIALS== I'm glad to have found you all, it seems like you have a very nice place with a comfy, friendly, and safe atmosphere.

While some staff are obviously better than others, most didn't seem to have much of a clue about the hostel facilities or city so weren't particularly helpful and check in was a mission. The dorm rooms are cosy with super squeaky bunk beds, but fine. There aren't personal lockers available in the rooms (but there are some available two floors down) and with only two toilets per floor between all the dorm rooms there is often quite a wait. Handy having a kitchen.

Quite a distance from central Miami but if you're looking to get out of the city and check out the Everglades this place is wicked as.

Highly recommend joining an Everglade day tour with the group associated with the hostel - fantastic way to see and learn about the area.

Excellent common areas - great for meeting and hanging out with fellow travellers. Great out-of-city location, bit of a pain getting downtown at night.
