  • I had so many fears about staying at a hostel but every day at the Bikini made me feel more and more comfortable with sharing quarters. I made many new friends and had a boost in self esteem after meeting many very attractive gentlemen that found me very interesting. After my divorce, I never thought that I would find this kind of happiness in my life, thank you Bikini Hostel! I love you!

  • Very charming and cute hostel in the heart of South Beach. Felt very welcoming at registration with the staff members. The hostel is conveniently located close to stores and touristic areas. The dormitories were large, comfortable and cleaned daily. Best part of my stay is when everyone gathers in the garden area to socialize among each other. The complimentary pizza party and barbecue were also great. Great friendly stay for people on a budget.

  • The hostel atmosphere and staff members were among the best I've encountered. The dormitories were also very spacious and clean. Location of the hostel was walking distance to everything. It's a bargain for your money.

  • 5 to 6 bucks for a bottle of beer in a hostel bar. That is not traveller friendly. Sobe hostel bar charges 2.50 to 3 bucks and has a better atmosphere. Kitchen is poorly equipped. No cups, no kettle. I boiled water on the stove to make coffee then asked the bar for a disposable foam cup, I was told it would cost me 50 cents! Really? Location is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Atmosphere was ok. Lots of locals in the bar after midnight. Pool water could be cleaner.

  • Never Stay at this venue. Private rooms are not actually private, they are shared with 9 people. The bottom bunk which was a double bed looked like a V as the bed was clearly broken and climbing on to the top bunk was dangerous as the bed was shaking as not stable and there was no entry point for the top bunk. Cooling system did not work and the staff were super rude. Prices at the bar was a joke for a hostel and the whole place really is a joke. Go on there website and just think opposite

  • The staff was not very friendly and it was sort of a goat rodeo. The room was pretty messy. WARNING: The photos are not accurate. Think more like a military bunker with the beds stacked 3 high. The ladders for the beds hurt like hell, so you need to wear your shoes up to bed. If you are tall and on the top bunk, you're gonna have a bad time. The drinking and hot tub area are nice, but this pretty much means your roommates will suck as drunks just throw stuff anywhere and staff doesn't care.

  • I enjoyed my stay in Bikini hostel. It's perfect for cheap acomodation. Nice staff and place. WARNING: I strongly recommend you to book through other search engine different from If you are booked in a hostel and THEY CANCEL your booking, will KEEP YOUR MONEY even if you are not responsible of cancellation. Use booking service AT YOUR OWN RESPONSABILITY. You are at risk of losing money. will never answer emails if this happens to you.
