This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Location - the hostel is near to one end of a long strip of restaurants and bars. It is however far from the harbour but we enjoyed our walk.

Room - very basic and there was no ladder for the bunk beds! Bathroom very small and dirty for 10 people.

Value - we are aware that Key West is expensive but we did not feel that the money we paid was good value for money for our room since there was no breakfast and the room was not up to standard. Could have been cheaper.

Service - the man at the office was nice and welcoming. He did however not give us any information about Key West which would have been nice. We had to ask but we still felt that he could have introduced us to Key West or something like that. Nothing major really.

We otherwise had a good stay. :-)
