Great & helpful staff. i would say this hostel is great for meeting people & partying but in the same time you can take a rest easily. Perfect combination!


to many rules


Cheap convinient place to stay, 10 min walk to miami beach. Helpful staff, free breakfast, hard to cook/ eat own meals due to polystyrene plates and cutlery! Cvs and whole foods 1 block away.


great place and cheap


I have used the hostel because I had a layover at MIA. Therefore, it is excellent. Bus 150 leaves to and from the airport close to the hostel. Otherwise it is a classical party hostel in a first world city and it is pretty much excellent for that purpose as well. There is a liquer store next door ;-), Wifi is good, common area very sociable. The dorms and bathrooms could be cleaner though. Overall, it seems to be unbeatable in terms of value for money.


It's an inexpensive hostel the so get what you pay for. If you're just needing a place to sleep it's the place to go. If you want a party hostel go to decowalk or Miami Beach international.


I stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and I can say it is a really good hostel for the price. I stayed in a room with 5 other girls and we were lucky enough to have two bathrooms in the room which was perfect. The lockers are provided in the rooms but you should have your own lock with you or you can get one for 6 $ at the reception. The staff was very nice, they gave me directions for downtown Miami and were very helpful in answering any of my questions.

Big kitchen, the dorms were clean, but the atmosphere wasn't welcoming or relaxing. One of three hostels I stayed in at Miami Beach and definitely my least favourite.


The hostel is about a 20 minute walk from South Beach so wasn't too bad, but the facilities were a little rundown. The rooms could have been cleaner but for the price it's fine. It's a nice place to relax especially outside since that's the main hangout area and if you're looking for a party hostel this is definitely the place. They have deals to local clubs that usually include free drinks.

Lock of the room was broken, and wasn't fix during my 6 day stay. But besides that, I had a great stay!


My second time in this hostel ,atmosphere was excellent ,I met a lot funny people and friends. If you want good fun Miami hostel is excellent place for you


This is my second stay ,had as much fun as my first time . Staff super funny as first time .


Great location and great staff. I liked that you got a little breakfast bag in the morning. The beds were not particularly comfortable, the hot water in the shower wasn't working and the room cleanliness was only ok. But for the price it was a pretty good place.


Miami Hostel has a good South Beach location and is priced well; however, there is some room for improvement. The biggest issue we, and others, had was the guy who works the night shift. It seems as if he actually goes out of his way to yell at guests and to be intentionally unfriendly and unapproachable. Instead of getting up and speaking to guests he screams at them from the front desk and is down right rude. The rest of the staff are great but if you hate people don't work at a hostel.


I like this hostel it's affordable. They include breakfast. I just wish the patio was open all night because there's no wifi in the room and if I don't wanna wake up anyone when I'm on the phone. So the only place to use the phone is the kitchen and there's no couch. Again it's the cheapest hostel on miami beach so it was good for the night and the staff especially the manager is very helpful and friendly which is good.

Cool place to stay, the staff very professional, I went out to party with the activities that they have and was awesome!


I'm absolutely happy with my stay at Miami Hostel. After having stayed in other hostels in Miami Beach, I highly recommend this hostel! Great price, great amenities, and a friendly and helpful staff. Fun place and amazing people. I felt like home. It's also worth mentioning that it's the ONLY hostel in Miami that has a fully equipped kitchen. That's really GREAT! My favorite part? Saturdays free BBQ cheese burgers. Those burgers are amazing! I’d definitely stay in this hostel again! =)
