Overall very good hostel -- comfortable rooms, nice common areas, and great price for Miami Beach. The location is the biggest downside -- about a half hour walk from most attractions, though a supermarket, a Starbucks, and the beach are just around the corner.

Worth the stay

Posted Jan 29, 2018
Pros: LOCATION, easiness to get to/from airport via public transportation, beach nearby, pool area, complimentary breakfast
Cons: Cleanliness of the bathrooms in the room, more options for the breakfast
Location: One block away from the beach, Subway restaurant, Starbucks, a supermarket, cafe's, other hotel restaurants. Museum of Ice Cream in walking distance
Quick $3 bus trip to this hostel from the airport. I was early to check in, so I laid by the pool until check in time. One block from the hostel is a Subway, supermarket, Starbucks, cafes and the best part, the beach! This hostel is not located near the chaos of South Beach and I loved it for that. The well known bar outside was crowded, the tacos I had ordered were good. I loved the outside sitting area near the pool. I wouldn't say the hostel was the cleaniest but it was decent. I dormed in a 4 female room, and the bathroom was located in the room which actually was the only CON for me (I did not notice any public restrooms in my hall, so if there was that option I did not notice), so be prepared for sharing one bathroom with 3 other people. Lockers in the room had enough space to fit my 2 backpacks. I'd advise others the bar/outside area plays music loudly until 2AM, this did not bother me but just advice for other travelers. Overall, enjoyed my stay and would stay here again!

Great hostel near the beach

Posted Jan 28, 2018
Being only one block from the beach was perfect, a shirt walk to the main strip, which gave me time to get to know my roommates and new friends, plus the bar and pool area at the hostel was just as great as going elsewhere. I would highly recommend and will stay there again

Beautiful courtyard.

This hotel is a hot spot for locals as well as travelers. The downside to that in my experience was that the environment was crowded. The music plays late into the night and could be heard in my room.

Party hostel, not for relaxing

Posted Jan 17, 2018
Pros: There is a nice bar with good vibes
Cons: Personnel more willing to help the customer, cleaniness (please), and lower the noise after 12 PM.
First, I was assigned a bed that was not made up. The bedroom had booze glasses everywhere, the bathroom was leaking, dirty, and really small (4 beds shared room). After asking several times, they changed me to a more decent room, not too bad. At nights it was noisy as there is a big bar with lots of people. The guys working here should work more on getting the customer first attitude. They were laid back, and not very friendly.

It was amazing, my room was so nice and cute. The hostel is so close to the beach. I just didn’t enjoy the breakfast, the time was very short and few choises to eat

BUSINESS LEISURE

Posted Dec 22, 2017
Pros: SOCIALABLE nightly entertainment
Cons: Room service maintenance, maybe breakfast buffet and inside laundrymat.
Location: Everything seems to be in walking distance.
I'M IN MIAMI ON BUSINESS AND DECIDED TO TRY A FREEHAND HOTEL. SINCE IM IN THE INDUSTRY AS A CONCIERGE. THE EXPERIENCE WAS NOT BAD BUT COULD BE BETTER. THE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS IS COMFORTABLE AND SOCIALABLE IF YOU DON'T MIND MEETING NEW PEOPLE. I DO THINK THE HOTEL CLEANESS COULD BE WORKED ON MORE. FOR INSTANCE BATHROOMS/ ROOMS SHOULD BE CLEANED LIKE ANY OTHER HOTEL. EVEN THOUGH ITS A FREEHAND HOTEL, I THING PEOPLE WOULD PAY EXTRA FOR THAT. UNFORTUNATELY WITH THE STRONG COMPETITION OF AIRBNB HOTELS ARE IN DESPERATE MODE TO STAY OPEN. THE HOTEL INDUSTRY IS HOSPITALITY TOWARDS CLIENTS.
