Very dirty hostel. Anyone could come in the front and easily be let through to where the rooms are. Some doors didn't shut properly and some aircon didn't work. As for atmosphere they had loud music playing constantly, even in the middle of the day when people were trying to have conversations with each other. I know this is a party hostel but a little more attention to keeping the hostel clean would be great. And casual 'chill' music during the day.

Dear guest, We thank you for your feedback and we apologize that your experience with us wasn't up to your expectations. We have a secure key card system that only allows guest with a valid key to go into the guest only area as well as the rooms, and a high security camera system to avoid any problems. We are a party hostel and we try to keep the hostel with a lively atmosphere, however your comment will be mention to the workers to make sure that the music selection and Vol. is up to par.

Was an absolute blast. All of the staff were very kind and helpful with any issues. Having free breakfast and dinner is a nice bonus. Being able to go out every night and know that you are going to have fun and meet people was excellent. I really enjoyed my stay.

I loved staying here. The 6 bed dorm I was in was fairly small, but it worked. The lockers are solid, and clean linen + towels available on request. Cleaning wasn't super: they emptied the trash and did a 20 second sweep. The staff is very nice and helpful; the daily organized events were good fun. Breakfast is really good for a free offering. I'd stay here again!

Dear Guest! Thank you for choosing SoBe Hostel & Bar! We do our best to provide as many free services as we can at a cheap rate! We know including 2 free meals a day helps young travelers stay in budget and we make sure that we organize awesome parties with free drinks and VIP entrances because we know that Miami can get expensive otherwise! We are happy that you enjoyed all we have to offer and we hope to see you again in the near future!

I know I only paid a little bit, but this hostel was gross. It looked like people were living there. Plus the bar tender added tip automatically and then set the receipt with the blank tip on top. It was deceitful. If you like to party and don't car about sharing a room with a forty year old man this place is fine. Can't beat the location. But I would have rather paid extra and stayed elsewhere. Oh. And the showers. Nasty.

Bathrooms need updating. Water from upstairs bathroom was draining to downstairs bathroom through the shower and it was disgusting.

Really like dinner being included too! Met so many nice people here and will definitely be coming back again and recomending to others.

Staff, hostel atmosphere & price are good. Towels/beach towels, are free which is great! Limited parking passes available-plan to book this in advance. This is definitely a party hostel so prepare to stay up late/get up early (cleaning staff comes in while you sleep, others in surrounding hostel bang on your doors) & sleep little! Showers can be deep cleaned and updated (at least have it stocked with toilet paper & don't let us use hand towels). Check out @ 12pm sharp or you're charged $20.

Definitely a well-organized hostel but if you didn't come to Miami to party, stay elsewhere. The beds weren't that comfortable but there were lockers underneath them which was nice. The bar had great happy hour prices.

If you're looking for a quiet, clean hostel this is not the place for you. We came here purely to party and be close to the beach and if that's what you want than this will not disappoint!! The hostel puts on great, reasonable nights out to all the local clubs and bars 7 days a week which all include an hour of free drinks before you go out which is always good! The rooms are terribly small and the showers are well mouldy so bring flip flops! But if you get over the small things it's awesome!

if you want to party in Miami, SoBe is a very good choice. Parties are arranged nightly, you just sign up for the guest list and a bus picks up everybody that wants to go. Cool bar area to get some drinks/meet people before going out.

In a good location close to the beach, lots of evening events going on and the free breakfast and dinner are a great ideat. The kitchen has no cooking facilities, there is no where to just chill out unless you want to sit in the bar/reception area which has loud music all the time. Beds and bathrooms are awful and it's so noisy all the time. Good place to party bad place to relax. Staff where friendly and the events give you a good chance to mingle with other people.
