“Fantastic Party Hostel, but overdescribes itself!”
Reviewed 19 September 2009

Just back from staying 3 nights hear in Miami. Definitely head hear for a young and wanting to party crowd :)

Upon arrival we were upgraded to an apartment, which was fantastic. Also got to see the standard accommodation hostel rooms which were average fair for hostels, but very clean.

Owner is clearly the guy on the desk most of the time, great guy and very helpful. Any queries answered and also up for a party in the evening. Although I suggest more staff needed as checkin is slow and often would have to wait 10 mins just to get quick question answered.

Location is great, 2 min walk to the beach.

My only issues are with the way the hostel advertises itself on their website, the site states a free lunch and free dinner, do not be fooled like we were into thinking we wouldn't have to buy food whilst being in Miami! the lunch and dinner is simply a slice of pizza from the next door pizza place! Also, don't expect social room after room from reading the website; the lounge is also the eating area, as well as the 'club' but is good for what is it and we had 2 good nights of beer pong down there before nights out.

Booked through hostel world, though id booked four bunk beds ended up in private room. Room needed decorating (especially the bathroom) but was clean and very comfortable beds and flat screen tv (small) in room. Would recommend as i loved miami beach but be aware of the $50 deposit for keys, thought it was a bit steep for a hostel. Did have free food but seemed to a lot of pizza going on.

One of the best possible locations in South Beach. A lot of action, parties, and excellent place to make some friends. The cost is a little higher than the competitors but with the cheaper beer and meals included I think you may be spending less by being there. Of course that is if you are not picky about food. The staff is cool and the environment is really nice.

So far this is my favorite place.

This was a nice hostel! we made some good friends here. When we arrived however they had had a leak so my friend and i had to be split up for a night which we were not at all happy about! the rooms were fairly clean although sand was everywhere even though they did their best to avoid this and sweep. if u can ask for a room away from reception do, as it can be noisy all night with dvds playing so if you want any sleep take some ear plugs!! rooms have small air con units which is good as its very humid and there is a tv and pool room downstairs. The kitchen is useless! the only thing you will be able to cook is noodles but there is a pizza place on the corner were you can get a huge sice of pizza for about $3.. good evenings out organised to local clubs with free entry and excellent location jut 1.5 blocks from ocean drive. The famous wet willis is nearby along with the designer shops being only half a black away if thats your thing.they do have lockers so use them as someone had passport and money stolen off their bed.
