Location is the only positive for this place, as it is located on Ocean Drive. We booked a six bed dorm with a private bathroom, only to find it is really a twelve bed dorm (with three high bunks) seperated by an interconnecting door. Our side had the bathroom, but no access to the light or air conditioning. So impractical!...

I stayed at Deco walk for 8 days. The location was fantastic! It is an average hostel (triple bunk beds, new linen every three days, they changed my room half way through my stay for no reason and the administration was poor) but I would stay at this hostel again purely for the friendly staff, location and nightlife on Ocean...

I stayed here over a weekend in sept. It was safe, clean and great location. The beach is right across the street and it's right on the main strip. If you're looking for a party and to meet people then stay here. If you want quiet I suggest elsewhere. You hear loud music and people all night from outside and...

If location is what you are looking for then this is your hostel. Right in the spotlight of SoBe. The bars, the restaurants, Lummus Park and the beach just steps away from your room. The common areas like the reception and rooftop are great, comfortable with a superb view. Rooms, this is a completely different story. Rooms are too small...

I went in the off season and was one of the only Americans. I loved being surrounded by the 8 or 9 different countries any given night but we only pregamed together before everyone went off on their own activities. The roof hot tub and bar were not open.

Last time I was in Miami I spent some nights in here. I were here before a couple of times. Price is always cheap because is a hostel. Of course the stay could be good or bad depending on what others room mates are there. It's clean, safe and in front to the beach

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSTEL. Today, at around 8am, while I was sleeping, Ms. Josy Miranda(a young lady that identifies herself as a manager) stormed into the room that I was sleeping in waking me up and demanding, in a hostile tone, that I had to immediately move to another room. She said that she had some especial guests waiting...

Booked into here with 3 other friends recently and did not enjoy our time here. We were booked into a 6 bedroom dorm, however it was really a 12 bedroom dorm. We had to walk through another 6 bed dorm where they placed a very thin wall with a door in the middle of the room, with a good 10inch...

Definitely not worth the money. The receptionist was getting annoyed for talking to them. The breakfast was served standing up in the hostel lobby. The bathroom was dirty. The pictures of the rooftop terrace definitely don't reflect their current state. Loads of junk laying around and everything is half broken. There are definitely better options available, especially in this price...

Jacuzzi constantly covered over. Nobody goes up as it is baron. 2. Breakfast is only white bread and jam. Some coffee about one pot per all 80 people in...
