      Amazing, so fun! Spotless room!

      I am somewhat of a hotel snob, normally a chain hotel, but we needed an affordable hotel, and we found this amazing little Hotel/hostel. We didnt know what to expect but we were happy to be greeted by everyone, friendly people everywhere, different accents, and colorful stories! The room was spotless, new king sized bed, large flatscreen tv, beautiful stone shower. We reserved a private room inatead of the hostel type, but every evening in the common are everyone gathered and told stories and how they ended up at Key West. We laughed way too much, my face hurts. Completely new experience for us and we cant wait to come back!

      Loud Room

      We were basically just looking for a place to sleep and that’s all this is. The bed was far from comfortable, but manageable. I’m not sure what was going on upstairs but it was incredibly loud in our room both late at night and early morning.

      Friendly staff and great location…kitchen is under stocked and lacking utensils and ingredients…the place could use a laundry drying area as it’s so hot but overall is a nice value
