    I didn’t stay this time. I took a chance on catching a flight home and succeeded. It looked to be as nice or nicer than when I stayed about 10!years ago.

    Nice hostel with lovely garden area. A sort of Motel set up which is quite sweet in the aesthetic. Not far from the nightlife about a 15 minute walk. Very expensive for what it is though, I stayed in a place on south beach for about a fifth of the price.

    If you are looking to save money in Key West, then I would definitely recommend this place. I was hesitant to book, because of the reviews I read, but glad I did. It seems like many of the bad reviews are from people with little hostel experience, this one is more than adequate. My room was clean and the location is good as the sights are walkable. My only drawback is the 1 bathroom, to many guests.

    One of the most expensive hostels, more of a long term accommodation for old people. No atmosphere and not a place you will meet young travelers! Only good thing is that the price was cheap for Key West and the staff were great. Dont come here if you want to socialise.

    A little disappointed. Arrived there and asked to cancel due to the impending hurricane. They would only offer me a 50% refund. Would rather spend money and go elsewhere.

    Shared rooms had no space for personal items whatsoever. Lockers were outside in common area, not convenient or very secure. Air conditioner was very noisy at all times, then made an even louder noise every 20 minutes making sleep almost impossible. Beds were not very comfortable. 'Privacy' curtains on bunks were very flimsy & kept falling down. Bathrooms were grotty. Shower was awful. Water was turned off for a period of time with no warning. On the plus side, location is great :)

    This was a miserable experience. I have stayed in may hostels around the world and this one is the worst. They have deceptive practices. I arrived with my girlfriend to stay 2 nights. Booked 2 beds and were refused to sleep in one bed together. Stated that if we wanted to sleep in the same bed we would have to upgrade to a private room. To begin with a bed costs $70 plus tax x2 to upgrade to a private room it is $200. When attempting to negotiate a solution the lady was rude and dismissive
