I know this is a lower budget hotel/hostel, but I must say we were underwhelmed by our experience this time. We paid $90 per night for a small, private king room. Much dumpier than what they show on their website. Windows were all sealed shut and the drapes were gross. I have uploaded a photo of the drapes, and instead...

I love traveling💕 I love the hostel experience! I'm giving them 4stars bc this is a nice place. It was the wrong choice for me this trip. If you have anything to do while the sun is up....don't stay here. Three nights of no sleep & I was walking around like a zombie & couldn't wait to get down to...

This was my first time staying in a hostel and I liked it. I had a four bed female dorm on the ground floor and towels are given every other day, sometimes daily. Breakfast is simple; Frosties, toast, jam, orange juice, coffee, muffins, croissant, banana and oranges but in the kitchen they have a fridge that you can put your...

It is so tremendously good / nice and pleasant atmosphere in the backyard in the evening / night, so the easiest way is just to buy ear plugs and blindfolded. Buy Ear Plug, of nice, but for various reasons: D

Looking for a nice spot to get a drink in Miami Beach - but want something cooler and more genuine? Try Freehand. It feels like one of those well kept local secrets. Certainly feels like the spot the locals go to, while they leave the more traditional bar and club scene to the wannabes and the tourists. Offering a pool...

Just had lunch at freehand in the patio. Ceviche ok, hummus with edamame is exquisite (!!!) and burger fine (nothing special but pricy) Service was fine , smiling. A comment on the kitchen staff : they need to look cleaner.

All in this hostel is good... the food, its location and its rooms... the only thing that it has to improve is the service off its crew, a lot of people are going to miami without any knowledge about the important places, shuttles or restaurants and the receptionists are not very helpful... whatever, thanks for all I enjoyed my stay

Super fun party hostel if you are looking for a great location and awesome vibe. This hostel has a nice swimming pool to lay out in the day and meet people. At night it becomes a serious hot spot and many people were actually coming to hang out at the Broken shaker.

Best service I had in my life. LUCAS is one of the best workers in this location. I lost my wallet and he found it and returned back to me with all the exact cash I had ( $4,500) . I am very lucky to find this location online

First of all, I had an emergency at home and had to leave one night early. There was no consideration given by management for any kind of refund for the early departure. The manager would not even look me in the eye while discussing the matter. Very impersonal with regard to issues, at least from management. The King Suite had...

“The King room facing Indian Creek Blvd was rather dumpy.”
