This hostel feels like you are going back in time. Not that I have experienced the flower power period, but this looks like the movies. So don't expect superclean rooms, but expect super friendly staff. They manage to create an atmosphere where experiences are shared, people make friends.

I have stayed in many hostels, mostly in Asia en India, therefore I had no doubt, what so ever, about booking a hostel in the US. Never ever, in any hostel (or hotel/motel) I have stayed in, did I have to pay $150 upfront with my reservation through the internet. The pictures looked very nice, the reviews were more than...

I was in this hostel during 1 mouth and it was probably the best moment of my trip. The garden is an amazing place, it is perfect to relax and enjoy the nature. In addition the garden is always improved by the owner and some volunteers. There is also a kitchen available with everything you need in it. Sometimes there... More

The Hostel is like a paradise hidden behind the walls at the crossing of two streets. The people are real nice and relaxed and they have a wonderful garden with all kinds of chairs, hammocks, swings, a waterfall and a little creek to cool off in. At night all kinds of light and candles are lit what makes it a... More

We recently stayed in the Nenby Small self contained accommodation at this Hostel. The room was great and perfect for our needs for a week. The room is nicely appointed and the small kitchen area gives you the ability to prepare some of your own meals. The gorgeous freshwater pool was made available to us exclusively and we also had...

I did not stay at the hostel but rented a couple of canoes($30 each/day) for the Nine Mile Pond canoe trail within the Everglades National Park. Both the canoes had to be transported on the roof of one SUV and the owner Owhnn is an expert at this. We "double-stacked" the canoes and Owhnn supervised it and did a QA... More

Stayed there for two times one night as an overnight stay on the way to and from the Keys. The beds were fine and there was enough room on the floor to the luggage.
