“Depends on what you're searching for!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

If you're searching for a place to party for little money, to get a little meal if you're there on time and a place close to everything: this is your hostel. For other people this hostel might be too loud and stuffed with drunk people. It's definitely no family hostel and not really clean. Staying in room one for a night we had yellowish water in the bathroom. Staying in room 36 about a week later the water was fine and the room a little cleaner. The staff are pretty unfriendly whenever it's not about a party except this one fresh man. He is really nice an helpful. I also stayed in one of their apartments for a night which was surprisingly nice, but the shuttle there was a little disaster as we had to wait for almost an hour to get a payed taxi. Generally I think this hostel doesn't earn is great reputation but it is quite an OK place to stay if you want to stay in South Beach. But make sure to print out your booking form as they are just writing down stuff on paper and get confused erasing stuff all the time. They just erased an other girl after they found out they deleted my booking earlier that day. That girl later nearly found no bed. Just got to take it relaxed when you're talking to these guys there!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are quieter but be careful! Everyone from the staff always mixes up booki...

It is very clean they clean the room's 4 times a Day if you are in a Dorm.
If you are staying in a private room or 4 bed dorm then your not staying at the same building like the others its a few blocks away walking distance about 5 minutes but they pick you up for breakfast, lunch, dinner and for the party's.
It's a Party Hostel but it's quiet in the rooms so if you are not in the mood for party you can also stay in the room and sleep if you have caring roommates of course.
They go to party's every night it's about 15-20 dollar with free beer or cocktails in the patio and they pick you up with a party bus, but its also nice to just stay in the patio and speak with other travelers. I met a lot of great people there!
Location is great it's one block from the beach away.
Oh and not to forget, if you have a small travel budget there is free breakfast, lunch and dinner so you don't need to buy food :-) the food is ok not the best but ok.

THEIR ROOMS ARE NOT LIKE THE PICTURE ON THE WEBSITE! They're staff at night are unprofessional and I'm pretty sure were drunk. My friends and I got a private room: It was horrendous, had no comforters, towels, and the toilet didn't flush. I don't know how this has been rated a #1 in Hostel because I felt dirty just walking in. I guess you have to be young and lacking money to find this an excellent deal. The only good thing is they refunded our money immediately when we told them we wanted to go somewhere else because of the appearance. But I'm guessing they get that a lot.

I added pictures but they don't capture the dirt on the floor and the grossness of the room.

I stayed at this hostel for about a week. It's a great place to meet people from all over the world, so if you're travelling alone you'll have a great time. One girl I met there actually prolonged her stay at this hostel instead of going to the already booked 5 star hotel by the beach. We went to different bars and clubs every night for a great deal and girls sometimes get some free drink coupons, which is nice. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. It's really not that bad either!
I stayed in amixed as well as a girl's room, both were fine although i do prefer a mixed room since girls tend to get a bit messy with their 2 trolleys/person and clothes all over the floor. But that's just my two cents.
So, this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The location is fantastic by the way! Two blocks from South beach... amazing.

All europeans go there to have a great time without spending a lot of money. All meals are included (very simple and small portion dishes and served on a first come first served basis at 1pm and 6pm) and the hostel organize drinking parties every night, so that you can go in the best clubs spending half of the price (usually 20 bucks for night). The hostel has 7 buildings around Miami South Beach. I can recommend the 940 8th street, that has also a small garden to have some pre games at night. I think if you choose to stay there, don't book more than 4-5 nights.

Room Tip: Ask for a private room because they are much more bigger and they have private bathroom.

If you are looking for a super relaxing, fancy hotel this isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for a fun, party vacation this is definitely the place for you. They have a club outing or bar crawl every night, and a huge group always goes. You can make new friends from all over the world and have a great time. Also the rooms were very clean, and I felt very secure at the property. I would highly recommend this place for anyone look to have a great party vacation.

great for meeting people, there are is a party put on every night!
the beds are pretty uncomfortable.. and the air con in our room didn't work it was SO hot!! they said there was nothing wrong with it at all...
but definitely stay here if you can put up with this because we had a really good time!
they have breakfast, lunch and dinner on most nights which really helps out if if you are on a tight budget
ALSO if you are a girl i would recommend staying in an all girls room there are so many creepy guys that stay here so just to feel comfortable when you go to sleep its best to do all girls :)
