The Chocolate Five Star Hostel and Crew House
Reviewed 28 December 2012

The hostel itself is not bad, but not good either. It's like the house I rent near my school. We have roommate in another room, we share living room and kitchen. Everything is OK except the smell. The room smells really bad. It's like some chemical elements all over the room. The bed is not clean. Anyway, I would not like stay here again. With the same price, you can have a great bid/book for a better hotel such as Quality Inn or other chains. That's way much better.

Dirty, noisy, stinky, drugs and smoke everywhere, the ideal pleace for dirty backpackers. You find descent rooms 2 blocks away from this, ... and cheaper.
Terrible service, to be franc, it does not exist, swimming pool full of dog hairs, unbeleivable.

Room Tip: Llook around 17th street and US 1, there are descent rooms, clear and clean for the same value.

I was lucky to have only one nice roommate. It was great to have the whole apartment for ourselves. Location was great, pool was nice. It was nice to have a kitchen as well. I recommend it. Just don't have too high expectations and you will enjoy yourselves. The price is great!

There's not much to this place. The dryer sucks. There's no breakfast but there is a grill area with a couple picnic tables where everyone hangs out and smokes cigs. Besides that, the nonstop music is really starting to get on my nerves (it plays outside constantly). We are renting an apartment for a month an there's plenty of space, a good kitchen area etc. It's more of a place for people staying a few weeks or more but it works for me. Close to tons of restos and the yachty scene. Tap 42 (cool resto/bar) is nearby as well as Waxy's the Village well and others. Denny's and Boston Market and Dunkin D's nearby...The #40 bus zips you down to the beach. Hey, it is what it is.
