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! =)

Miami Hostel has a Good Vibe. I am from Chicago and truly enjoyed this Miami winter break. An added bonus was the impressive Miami Boat Show occurring during my visit.


All in all, very nice and hospitable place. They don't give you locks for the security boxes, but unfortunately that seems to be the standard nowadays (how much would it cost to hand one to every guest?).


I have been in many hostels and this one (Miami Hostel) was the worst ever! 1. Just because a hostel is the cheapest in Miami beach it does not mean it has to be: unclean, people smoking until 12:00 o'clock in the common area with loud music til 12:00 o'clock (the common area is beside the rooms!!) 2. horrible terrible toilets (how come they charge for someone to use that?). 3.stupid thing that a person must wear a wristband for the hostel! 4. there's no breakfast at total, one hard bread!

We have many good reviews about how clean and quiet the hostel is especially at night after midnight. As this is Miami beach and many people are here to have a good time and enjoy themselves we leave the common area open until a respectable hour with no complaints. Second the wrist band is for your safety that allows to control guests in house. You knew the rules as you read and signed them upon check in that the band is required but lost yours and as a result was charged from your deposit $5.00


The bed is not that clean or comfortable, but ok for a hostel. If you want to use the locker, you need to buy a lock there for $6. The staffs are not so welcomed, but they will do their jobs.


Shower had fury mould growing all over shower walls in one of the 12bed room, and there was dirt on the beds, even though we got clean sheets to put over. The people there and staff were all good friendly and happy that was great.


The hostel's main gate didn't lock, some of the staff members weren't kind or helpful. The facilities are very poor.

Theres a gate out front, but its almost never locked/closed, so literally anyone can walk into this place, but thats okay because the rooms are all keypass locked automatically. As a hostel it does pretty well, but it certainly isnt on a beach front. Easy enough to get to (direct $3 bus from the airport). The question i had was whether i liked south beach or not, but thats a different question altogether...


Thank you for a good place to sleep: "Many people are surprised to learn that researchers have discovered a single treatment that: * improves memory, * increases people's ability to concentrate, * strengthens the immune system and * decreases people's risk of being killed in accidents... For most people, this treatment would consist of getting an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. "
