  • Great location and value for your dollar! Staff can be more welcoming. No breakfast included is a bit on the negative side. Erick, New York USA

  • Laid-back young scene. Not too crowded. Not a party hostel. Ideal for European (UK,NL,D,F, I,ES etc) hostel/backpackers that want more than just a compromise in quality for economy. Perfect base to do the Miami to Key West by car route. Has an international feel.

  • Its my second time there, I love the location. Its near to Ocean Drive, beach, Lincon, etc... But... will be nice to remove the carpet in the bedrooms and comum areas. Its too old and seems dirty. The rooms and beds are good, but need new pillows. Really need! Great kitchen, pool, hall, wi-fi, etc.

  • No atmosphere to meet people. Not good for single travellers. Pool was nice but it's not heated. Location is good.

  • Hostel is situated in Miami Beach, very close to water. This is good for person who want to spend all day in the beach. If you are interesting to visit Downtown, The Wylnood or Little Havana you must take the bus. Communication is good. For me hostel was good - it was clean, nice staff without one guy who worked in receception. There was also kitchen but you must be prepared that this is hostel connection with hotel well you don't find any food (normal in hostel you have sugar, tea, some staff)

  • Terrible experience, after trying to check in, they did not let me without a Passport. I had valid ID and everything and the foreign guy at the front desk was very rude &told me in broken English he refused to make an exception and that I should have known. I don't know any Americans who run around with their passport, they should accept BOTH a Valid State ID or Passport for international travelers. DO NOT STAY HERE. Go to the HI Hostel, it's called Hotel Eva 1506 Collins or Freehand Hostel!

  • Stayed for about 5 nights. It was a great time, the staff is very friendly and welcoming (Ms. Teay!). I had to move dorm for a couple of times as I had not reservation for the whole nights, and they give priority to groups that have reserved. Anyway, they try to find the best way to help. Swimming pool is a very cool facility, but water is quite warm. Rooms are spacious, and though old fashioned, clean as can be. Don't expect a posh modern looking place, but a quiet and comfortable hostel.

  • This hotel is infested with termites. The first room we were given when we checked in was filthy (cigarette butts & condom wrappers), and termites in the bed base. We made complaints and asked for our money back but management refused!
