This hostel is beautifully located directly across from the beach. The bars and restaurants nearby are expensive (all of the Art Deco District is) but there is an excellent pizza shop around the corner that was ok. I found the room newly renovated and although the mattresses aren't the best quality (they're plastic covered and a bit hard - ok...

Okay so this hostel is now called Ocean Blue Hostel. The owners changed hands a week ago. (Last week of December 2015)... However on all booking sites and even on trip advisor all the great reviews are for deco walk!! (Sign outside of building is also deco walk still) We checked in with the manager, can't remember her name, older...

DecoWalk hostel I ended up staying here over Christmas due to being stuck, the staff here was friendly and always managed to find me a spot to stay for the night which was greatly appreciated. 3 meals a day included in the price, granted not very good food but what do you expect when you are only paying around $30...

We stayed here in 2012 driving from NYC to LA... this place was great for us as it was reasonable in price, great location and the rooms were clean, beds comfy with all the amenities you needed. We stayed in a 6 bed room from memory there was plenty of space for everyone and all our bags. Directly across from...

This is a mediocre hostel, it looks good because it is situated on the 1st floor on Ocean Dr and overlooks miami beach. The amenities are fine but I found the whole vibe to be a little too quiet for my taste. I'm not a party animal but it was pretty quiet while I stayed. It does have a rooftop...

For the value and location room was okay other than the aueconditioner leaking on the floor. They also serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner not much to brag about BUT it beats paying for the cost of food on South Beach.

Great location on Ocean Drive. However, not the best place on the inside - kind of has a funky smell, mattresses are pretty terrible, free breakfast in the morning is toast and coffee, and I'm pretty sure they permanently set the AC at 85 in the rooms!!! It could have so much potential if they gave it a little love!...

Clearly the BEST location in town. For more demanding travelers, this is the best place. Jacuzzi on the rooftop where you can chill and have a good time, FREE breakfast, FREE wifi, complete kitchen and Affordable price. Bathroom in the dorms and clean sheets. However, 3 bunks bed is too much especially when you're in the top. The hostel proposes...

It locates in front of the sea. You can see the beautiful beach from your room and go there anytime you want to. It was such a wonderful view from my room to see the beach from the morning to night. I was traveling with my friend, we were not familiar with the area, but the staff was so kind...
