I have never reviewed a hotel until this experience...I spent a total of $186 to stay in a standard king room my last night in Miami after spending 2 nights at a more expensive hotel (only $50 dollars more a night). I am shocked at how awful the room was for the price. The room is dark and old and...

First things first: I loved the stay in this hostel even though there were some downsides. Named they were the sometimes-noisy roommates and the dirty appearing bathrooms. You can’t blame the hostel for their guests, so the first point doesn’t really count. But the staff could actually to a better job in cleaning the bathrooms. The rest of the experience...

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
