    Distinctly Average Hostel

    by

    I've stayed in quite a few hostels in my days and I must say this one is distinctly average. I'd heard mixed reviews but sheer lack of other options meant I chose this one as one of the cheaper for a private room. In the end I wish I'd paid extra for a proper hotel room.

    Accommodation options are either shared dorm rooms or private double rooms with two double beds and a private bathroom. Firstly the web site says that bedrooms have been renovated. I don't think this is accurate as the room seemed very old and worn, paint peeling, bathroom in very poor condition, lightbulbs broken. The downstairs shared area is tidy and clean enough but nothing special. Some building work is going on somewhere though as you can hear the noise during the day.

    The free breakfast advertised online actually consists of some jam, bread and coffee and you'd be just as good going to one of the diners nearby. There is a great pizza place on the corner that's busy seemingly all day and night. Security seemed a bit mixed as I saw some vagrants wander into the building at times but I don't think they get past reception. Still, it made me a bit wary of the safety of my belongings in my room.

    Unique Quality: If you like a really young crowd of travellers then this could be a good place, but I was only stopping off in Miami on the way further south and wasn't interested in partying. The staff are friendly enough, some more than others, speaking both Spanish and English fluently.

    Location in the heart of South Beach just two blocks from Ocean Drive is what gives this place its name rather than quality accommodation. I'd say unless you're really into the international hostel social thing or on a really tight budget, try somewhere else first. The rooms are very low grade and didn't feel entirely clean, the place can be very noisy indeed. Overall it feels very overpriced.

    Rooms have aircon via the window but it's so loud you can't hear much over it and certainly can't leave it on overnight.

    Unfortunately tax was not included on the price quoted on the internet and there is also a surcharge for credit cards which I found disappointing. All in all, while not an entirely bad experience, I think there must be better options.

    Directions: On corner of Ninth Street and Collins Avenue, South Beach. Two blocks and 5 mins walk from Ocean Drive.

    Your Standard Hostel

    by

    This is a standard hostel. The staff was friendly. The rooms are well away from the party area so you can get a decent night's sleep (though I always recommend ear plugs in a hostel!). Free breakfast, kitchen & internet available, bed sheets provided. It's in an excellent location - just walk to the beach/bars/restaurants/shops. Parking is available a few blocks down in a secure parking garage for $15 overnight.

    Directions: Right off the main strip

    This Hostel - despite being recommended in guide books is filthy, the kitchen is all broken down and it is INFESTED with BED BUGS I was eaten alive and the hundreds of bites gave me a week of misery - and it is over priced at 20 dollars a dorm!!!

    It is the one on 9th street south beach.
