This was my first time staying at a youth hostel. I stayed for 3 nights and rented a bed in a 8 bed female room. The beds were like cubby holes/ semi private compartments. I found the bathrooms to be clean, linens clean, along with the towels. I saw daily maid service. Only thing was a big hairball in the...

We had a great time at the Freehandwhich is a hotel and hostel. We booked a private room which was really nice. The mini fridge was quite spacious so we could store some of our stuff as well. The staff was super helpful, breakfast was good. The atmosphere is very open and fun, there is a nice outdoor area with...

Definitely recommend it for experienced solo travellers who know that refraining from staying at SoBe is positive. Can't believe some people complain about the location. It's perfect. Easy-going and helpful staff. Nice complimentary breakfast (cereal coffee oatmeal fruit). 2 blocks aways from the beach. Hygiene could be better, just go and buy some cleaning products on you own for the...

Stayed there for a couple of days. The best part: the patio. There is a cool bar there, where you can hang while chugging a couple of cold beers. The decor is a little bit dated, but the hostel is nice and clean. The staff was really helpful! Location is very good, and the breakfast is a great deal.

A stylish & quirky stay is promised here. I couldn't recomend this place any more. Beautiful private room, ideal location, professional staff & everything you need right here. Small extras make all the difference, complimentary water, breakfast & private rooms come with fridge/freezer. The poolside bar is a must for all guests; just wear your insect repellant. Loved it!
