    I have been coming here for the last 4 years. The staff is always so amazing and accommodating, especially Jonathan at the front desk. He always makes my stay comfortable and enjoyable . The location is perfect, and I will continue to chose this place over a luxury hotel rental, every year.

    No frills but great prize and fantastic location for beach access and restaurants. Safety was excellent. The staff is friendly and watches to make sure that non-guests aren’t allowed into the paid room area. In room safes were also nice for ensuring our valuables were safe. I would stay here again.

    I decided to go to Miami for a quick getaway and the only thing I didn’t like of the vacation was the hostel I was staying in.The other people that were sharing the room with me were the opposite of friendly, two man and one woman, she left two days after I arrived and I decided to leave tooas soon as my boyfriend arrived in the city, cause the situation with one of them was becoming unsustainable due to harassment. I forgot a hat in the room is black if I could get that back would b great

    The room is disgusting and the beds are gross. The review for this place is based on the fact that it’s in a hotel. But the hostel part of it was disgusting. I slept in my car over staying in this place. It was awful.

    I’ve stayed in hostels in Europe before so I know what it’s like living in a hostel but this place was simply gross. This place is literally disgusting and so trashy. The front desk workers were rude and unhelpful for all problems we had during our stay. To name a few, there were homeless people sleeping in the lobby constantly, rooms smelled like vomit and weed, only two outlet plug-ins for four people, dirty floors, & moldy bathrooms. I wouldn’t even recommend this place to my worst enemy.

    Calling this hotel a dump would be a disservice to all the dumps on Earth. We checked in, went to our room and it was disgusting. Smelled like a clothes hamper, stains on the carpet, bathroom floor, in the toilet. We could not stay in a room like this, and when we asked for a refund we were told it was "all sales final" by the a-hole at the front desk. Had to move to hotel next door which was 1000x better. I would stay as far away from this sleazebag crapfest as possible.
