What a nightmare!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2008

Well, we didn't stay. The place looked great during the day, had all the ammenities of a hostel, but when night came around it became party central. Since the rooms all face the central courtyard, and our window didn't properly close, it was essentially like trying to sleep in the middle of a party zone with people drinking, yelling, and blasting music. We left shortly after trying to sleep and cut our trip short. One of the other guests in our room also left for the night, possibly to sleep in his car? If you're taking it easy for the night, like to stay up late and party, and can sleep in in the morning, then this place is great. But if you're planning on getting up early and need sleep, stay elsewhere.

Key West's hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

It's not a place where you can feel welcomed at all, but with Key West prices... it;s the best option.

The place itself is just a hostel... nothing more, nothing less. The problem is they know they are the cheapest option in town, so they don't care about you.

The location is not the best, but you are still two or three blocks from Duval and another couple of blocks from the beach.

Cheap Hostel, last to get fully booked.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 3, 2005

Ended up in Key West with no hotel booking and also didn't realise that there was a power boat meeting on, so there were literally no hotels available, the last room I tried was expensive and by the time I got to the hotel, someone had already taken it. SO I ended up driving around and finding this hostel, quite close to the southernmost hotel. It was $20 a night for a shared room, which was cool, the place was reasonably clean and the staff were friendly. Its located about 10 minutes from the centre of Duval Street, its a nice walk in. I used this place as a base at night, so generally didn't hang about for long periods, if this is how you travel, this is the cheapest and best option in Key West.

Unique Quality: Cheap! As I said, when everything else was booked, this place still had free beds.
Close to Duval Street.
Close to the beach.

Directions: Walk west out of Duval Street for about 10 minutes, its on the left hand side (if I remember correctly)

The Seashell Motel is part of the Key West Youth Hostel. I'm not sure if the motel is what the hostel books as private rooms for hostelers or if it is indeed thought of as separate. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a fridge in it. The hostel books snorkel and scuba trips and rents out bicycles. There is also free parking which is a big plus in Key West. The motel was located three blocks off Duval and one block from the oceanside beaches.

Key West Youth Hostel.

by written on August 24, 2002

$18 per dorm bed.

Unique Quality: Though I have always had friends to stay with in Key West, the hostel has a good reputation and a real find for the budget traveler with the town's notoriously high prices for rooms. Very close to Duval St.
