Top tips for finding Fort Lauderdale hostel deals

  • If you’re a thrifty traveler taking a vacation in Fort Lauderdale, booking a hostel is a great way to see the sights without the high costs that sometimes come with booking accommodations in local hotels, resorts, and vacation homes. Another benefit of booking a hostel in Fort Lauderdale includes its ready access to generally hostel-specific amenities, like shared kitchens where you can prepare your own meals and spacious common areas where you can meet other travelers.
  • When you’re searching for hostels in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll have two main areas in the city to choose from: close to the beach or near downtown. Choosing a hostel that’s close to the beach will give you quicker access to local surf and swimming spots, while choosing a hostel in downtown Fort Lauderdale will put you a few steps away from plentiful shopping areas, restaurants, bars, public transportation options, and the city’s main attractions, including the Museum of Discovery and Science and the NSU Art Museum.
  • If you’re traveling to Fort Lauderdale on your own and you’re planning to meet up with other travelers, choosing the right hostel is essential. The Hotel Deauville is one of the best accommodation options in Fort Lauderdale for solo travelers because of its spacious common areas, its bicycle rental options, a pool on site, barbecue facilities, and extremely close proximity to the beach.
  • When traveling to Fort Lauderdale with a group of family or friends, you’ll need to book accommodations that can comfortably house your entire party. Hostel Crocodhouse, located near downtown Fort Lauderdale, has six rooms with four beds each, making it capable of accommodating even the largest groups.
