Another "traveler friendly" hostel.  Staff was pleasant & helpful.
Stayed 2 nights.
Top:  Front entrance
Left:  Female dorm room.  My bunk on bottom.  Nice soft quilts.  Crisp clean sheets.    Lots of cats.  One curled up on the foot of my bed.  Sweet!
Beautiful garden with a fountain in the back yard.
They built their own float for the parade!
Gate leading into the back yard & gardens of the Everglades Hostel.
During my stay at the Everglades Hostel, I took a couple of day trips to visit local attractions like the Primate "Biopark", Monkey Jungle in Florida City.  Photo on Right:

Later in the day, on my way to Key West I visited the John Pennecamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo, Florida, and went on the Glass Bottom Boat Tour.
