The staff could have definitely been friendlier. My initial check-in (Derek, I think?) was great and very welcoming. Anytime I asked anyone else a question after that throughout my stay, no one would respond with words. It was like talking to brick words. I asked for drinking water at one point and one of the women in the kitchen looked at me blankly and walked into a back room without any type of response. It was really strange, but overall I had a decent experience.

I had a very pleasent 7-night stay at Miami Hostel. No major issues to bring up other than maybe pricing around spring break times (double to triple). This is the same all around Miami Beach though, so not too much their own fault. Facilities were great and the hostel was clean. Security was really good with pretty much noone going in and out without notice. Food was included in the price and was surprisingly OK. I had expected bad food, but was positively surprised. I would stay here again!

More detailed review on Tripadvisor: I stayed in Miami hostel/ freehand and Bikini hostel. Miami hostel had squeaky metal bunks. Ok/ average atmosphere, nice common areas. Best of all though, Free food, it was nice to come in in the evening to Pizza or pasta and not have to worry about finding somewhere to buy food. ok it was for the most part basic, but it was good. I think If I stayed in Miami again I'd stay here over the others. but there wasn't much in it.

Great hostel only 5 minutes walk from the beach, right next to a liquor store, free pool table and Jacuzzi, safe secure lockers. It is a great environment to meet people and socialize. Also has a modern and extensive kitchen and common area.

Everything was perfect - Never been to a hostel which was so clean and nice like the Miami Hostel. We also enjoyed the food which was included in the price and the Jacuzzi!

Miami hostel was alright. It was clean. It ended up being fairly expensive for what we got. The problem was: we were OVERcharged for our room. When we brought it to the staff members attention he explained that we'd been taken advantage of by a staff member and we should have double checked the price at the time, that it was just too bad and that it tends to happen. After some convincing we managed to get SOME money back, but basically got called naive/silly for getting duped by a staff member??

Great hostel, definitely worth the money. They provide food 3 times a day: for breakfast a bagel (not really enough to be satisfied), for lunch a sandwich which was quite okay and for dinner they had pasta which was good! The only thing I didn't really like about it is that they only provide plastic dishes (they're producing a lot of garbage..) The staff was extremely friendly and even though it was very busy when I arrived I didn't have to wait. They even carried my heavy backpack to my room!

I've been to a lot of hostels and this seriously my favorite! I'm definitely coming back very soon. They have awesome parties every single night, the jaccuzzi was awesome, the food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) was super good. The staff was so hospitable and made you feel like home. Their lobby, community room, bedrooms, and location are perfect. I'm super satisfied.

An okay place to stay, it's not right in the heart of everything in South Beach but it's not too far away either, an easy walk. I was annoyed as when we arrived, we found the price had gone up since our initial booking due to 'new owners'? I believe they should have honoured the original booking price, however it did then include breakfast (bagel), lunch (roll) and dinner (chicken and mashed potato) both nights. Rooms were clean enough.

The hot tub was always closed. It looks like a bar but its really just a place to sit with no drinks. The free food they posted is really just a bagel in the morning and maybe a sandwich for lunch. There is no security for the entrance just a broken card lock.

Friendly staff and very accommodating when I arrived! I had a great experience and liked the comfortable beds in the large rooms! It's a few blocks from the beach, but you're next to 2 large supermarkets, Whole Foods & Publix - making food options easy. I loved the large kitchen!!
