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...

I've stayed in a huge number of hostels in my time, and I really can't say enough good things about this one. The amenities are fantastic (swimming pool with waterfall, huge treehouse, lots of very cool outdoor sitting spaces, fire pit / oven, outdoor showers, free breakfasts....), and the staff are super friendly and helpful. When we discovered after our...

As someone who has traveled quite a bit and stayed at many hostels all over the world, this one was truly a disappointment. I had heard of Everglades International Hostel through a fellow traveler a few years back and always wanted to stay there, so as my boyfriend and I were driving through Southern Florida this past week we knew...

Since writing my last review, I've been back many times and it is still a breath of fresh air. I've been coming here to work on my book, which apparently a lot of other writers have done as well - there's something inspiring about the atmosphere. The owner is an expert on the Everglades and they offer a number of...

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.

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room (water room) with a shared bath. The room was clean and the bed and linens were nice. We didn't do a lot at the hostel due to being in the keys all day both days but enjoyed the comfy bed and relatively quiet nights. A couple things...

Stopped by on our way to the keys... we were able to pop up the tent and get a couple hours of sleep before heading out in the morning... such a cute little place.. had a quick shower.. very clean bathrooms! And make your own pancakes in the morning! Would totally come back if I'm ever around again

My husband thought it would be a neat experience for our family to stay in a hostel, but I don't think I would ever repeat it. "Linens" consisted of sleeping bags and sheets thrown in our arms. Bathroom had no soap and there was a sign that said not to flush toilet paper down!! You definitely need to be okay...

We stayed in the small Nimby cottage which was perfect for us. A thoughtfully presented room with large bed and linen, bathroom with fluffy towels and a private kitchen area. We had access to all communal areas but could retreat to a private fresh water pool and sun loungers. The hostel volunteers and guests were all incredibly welcoming and friendly....
