Auckland, United Kingdom

The hostel has a bit of strange atmosphere at times. Because it is the cheapest place in Key West, there are a lot of people here who have nowhere else to go, including a few homeless people who just seem to sit in the TV room all night. The hostel seems perfectly safe, though--just a little different. You may find the reception closed at odd times as well.
NB: I had a lot of difficulty prebooking my room. I tried using the website twice, faxed, and had to phone up twice to confirm my booking.
