I really don't think that you can beat this hostel's price on Ocean Drive for the price. The staff really tried to make sure that my football team was all accomodated. It was kind of unorganized but the staff handle everything to the best of their ability. Belinda, Patricia, Mike, and the gentleman who handled the food. The Charlotte Colts...

We booked seven nights at this hostel on our holiday to Miami, but we left after 3 because it was totally awful. The rooms are tiny and not clean at all. Two nights in a row a bunch of unknown people where sent into our rooms just to party, smoke weed and sniffing cocain. It was impossible to sleep, and...

Arrogant and rude staff. A breakfast included which would barely feed a starving child. I have stayed at hostels in America, Europe and Australia and this is by far one of the worst experiences ever. The only good thing I can say about it is the location so if you got absolutely no standards what so ever - this is...

The hotel is well situated just near the beach. Also, it has a rooftop that is good to enjoy a sunny day.However, the staff was really rude, and the rooms were the worst I've ever seen. 12 in a ridiculously small room, with only 1 bathroom inside for everyone. When you don't know anyone, such a crowded environment is not...

I liked the hostel, the staff is very friendly, they always have good plans for party and different options too. The location is great too and is just across the beach. The food is good considering what you pay for it. Clean rooms too and secure.

The location is fantastic. You are right on Ocean Drive and all you had to do is cross the street and you are on the beach. When I booked this hostel it described our room as private however a few days after I booked it we learned we had to walk through another groups room in order to get to...

The Deco Walk Hostel is directly across Ocean Drive from the beach-located SCOPE tent. At $50 per night, I expected it would be booked to the gills. It wasn't. I reserved a spot in a 6-bed all-women room, and only one other adult woman was there. It's been awhile since I stayed in a hostel, and this was my first...

Now I'm not sure if we were simply unlucky but it was one negative after another during our stay. We were a group of 4 girls travelling together but because our dates were sightly different we booked as two groups. Upon booking, our single booker called the hostel to explain our situation and ask if she could be put in...
