Wonderful atmosphere, unique and quaint place full of character. THis place is about the garden. It is made as a grown-up playgarden, with all kinds of hammocks and places to chill. Kitchen is clean and very useable. Hostel owners/volunteers bit weird. Lots of people living there? Seems to be normal in hostels in USA. The're more like studenthouses/refugee camps. When...

Very friendly people! We had problems with our carrier, which had left our luggage in Nasau. It was a real hassle getting it back. Fortunately, the manager helped us making phone calls, as english is not our native language, and was very supportive. The atmosphere is really special and the garden is quite lush! We booked a full day tour...

Florida City is an ideal location to all of southeast attractions. If you are open minded, don't miss this hostel to relax and meet interesting people. You will experience great amenities and share kitchen incl. disposable pancakes with fellow travelers. Only shared bathrooms could become a bottleneck. Also, booking Everglades tours shall be done upfront.

I wasn't going to write this, but I feel the need to warn others. Sketchy neighborhood, furniture looks like it was picked up off a trash pile, broken windows, missing window slats, nobody at the desk, keys left out in the open. You cannot flush your toilet paper - like in a 3rd world country! I have been to other...

I stayed here 13 years ago. I stumbled on it, when I rented a car to go toward the keys from Miami, and I have often thought about my stay here since. It use to be a run down Motel 8, but was bought up by a young free spirt, and converted to a Hostel. It looks like it has...

It was a very funny and welcoming (friendly) place, the hosts were like the hippies, everything in the frigo was common. The room was small and hot but it was very authentic. I felt like in woodstock. it was very cheap.
