  • All in all, the stay here was okay but nothing special. This hostel definately targets party people which tend to hang out in their own beer garden until late and then go partying with the hostel crowd. If you want to take it a bit easier and prefer a recreative night and clean and spacious rooms, look for a different place to stay because this hostel can't offer you anything from that list.

  • The girl at the bar won't tell you the service is already charged on the check.

  • Please Don't come and put the lights on at 6.15am when the staff has made some kind of an error with reservations, and say that you have to check on all the people in the room. Really at 06.15am and say you have a right to do so??!!! Please clean rooms and take care of the old sheets before you check new people in. The saff at the reception could be at least slightly welcoming and resourceful. One of the worst places on South Beach, no doubt!

  • Pros: super close to south beach and the bars, a cool beer garden attached to the hostel. Very friendly staff. Cons: Bathrooms are well worn. Stained, grime build up and just lack of actually doing more than a quick wipe down are evident. The metal bunk beds sound like they're going to give way any minute. Mattresses are well past their shelf life.

  • Clean facilities with friendly hospitality and great party environment! Location is walking distance to everything which is very convenient! However, the best part is seeing Maria Bonita everyday!

  • Do not go to private room. It isn't private because you havê to share the bathroom and it is inside of.the common room. But the worst is the mattress...actually, you can not call that paper sheet as a mattress. Detail, it is one bathroom for 12 people in the room....never again!

  • The staff at registration was very unfriendly and took forever to check us in. We stood there for forty minutes while they took care of people that had come in after us, so they basically ignored us. But while the staff was awful the Bikini hostel had a great atmosphere. The bar was cool, and the bar workers were nice as well. The rooms were average, nice showers with hot water. If you want to get to Downtown, Wynwood, or Little Havana you're going to have to drive or take an Uber.

  • Located in walking distance to everything in South Beach! Hostel has a great bohemian vibe when you arrive and the staff are all very welcoming. Rusty was very helpful and Maria is the best. Rooms are clean and adequate for sleeping. I enjoyed meeting people from around the world. The hostel was a fun place with all their scheduled activities. Will go back when in the area.

  • Warm, inviting and youthful hostel! The dorms were comfortable, clean and at a great price! They also have a fun outdoor area with many activities to do during your stay. Maria, Rusty and the other staff members were amazing and helpful. They made me feel like at home! I will miss them all!
