    Overall, this was a great understanding accommodating hostel. Genuinely I had a bad impression on the place because of all the bad reviews and even though it looks sketchy from the exterior, this is honestly a great place with great security in a great location. LAUNDRY OPENS AT 5PM & CLOSES AT 10PM. my first experience at a hostel and it was great because i felt safe with no issue. people hang out in the front but they dont bother you. Definitely worth the cost and i’d come again if im around.

    Love the staff, the perfect pool with gorgeous vine tree in back for mini forest bathing, a sweet cat for Empaths, quality for a good price, can’t beat the location, and feel so lucky to stay here. They even have a bathtub in the room! Most have showers so I feel blessed. Cool kitchen setup for separate cooking and storage for food too. Thank you for making this lol deaf girl feel so welcomed. It makes a huge difference. Mahalo Plenny 🤙🏾🌺

    The location is great, that area around 15th is nice. The room itself was quite spacious and bed was comfy enough. I suppose with the location being good, you'd expect to pay more right? But I'll ask you... if you pay $150 a night would you expect the tv to work? I would Poor, and no bar fridge either

    Hostel Summary: PRICE & LOCATION Staff consistently unfriendly. Room doors thankfully have a deadbolt on them. $20.00 cash deposit required for physical key upon check-in. NO IN ROOM AC CONTROL! At least for the private room on the 2nd floor where I had stayed. Keep this in mind for MIAMI summer heat! Good location for beach & Lincoln Road Mall food/shops. Typical small rooms for the MIAMI Art Decco hotels in this area, having stayed in 25+ of them, incld. most SOBE hostels.

    It was crazy expensive for what it is. 70 USD for a mixed dorm I shared with guys. They give you a sheet and a pillow case and a towel. No blanket, so I used my sleeping bag. At checkout I had to remove the sheets too. Simple metal bunk bed. The worst value for money hostel EVER.

    First of all the room was disgusting, stains on the shades in the window and sheets. No trash can in the room only in the bathroom, tv was the size of a childs and only got two channels. At 430 in the morning there was banging/knocking from someone on the door next to us that lasted about 3 hours. When we tried to get extra towels from the front desk they refused more than once, one of which i was soaking wet from the pool and just trying to get one to dry off. Will not return.

    This 'hostel' has no place even being listed on from how hostelworld promotes itself. The Tropics appeared to be a place just above being homeless, many transient people wondering the building. The building and facilities are not updated whatsoever. No entertainment or games. I wouldn't expect anyone to feel safe here. The water pressure and temperature in the shower fluctuated midshower. The Air Conditioner filter does not appear to have been cleaned since it was installed.

    The hostel smells like a weed everywhere. Lots of homeless people living at the property. Rooms are dirty never cleaned while we are there. Stay away
