It's definitely a deal if you only want to party and go to beach while you're in Miami. They can get you into clubs where it's very difficult to get in otherwise. The staff usually don't have time to deal with you, but when they do, they are generally ok (especially during the day). Wifi only works in lobby, and there's only one PC to use. Kitchen is terrible and unfortunately my secure locker didn't work. They change your towels anytime you want and give you free beach equipment, which is nice

Such a blast! Unbeatable location - a couple blocks from the beach and main strip!! The staff and guests were the coolest, friendliest, funnest (not to mention, greatest looking) group of people (of all ages)! Staff members dropped everything to help fix minor issues that we experienced. The hostel bar had the best drink deals and 2 happy hours per day. Complimentary breakfasts and dinners were simple but tasty; definitely got the job done! Excursions to popular local bars and clubs were organiz

Friendly staff and a nice facilities but definitely a party hostel, don't expect a quiet night here as the lounge turns into the bar at nights and the guests are very noisy. Location is great.

The free dinners are really good. The hostel is right by the beach which is great and walkable to most of the bars and shops in south beach.

Very partying hostel. If you like party you should stand there. If you looking for some more Calm accomendation you should choose some thing else.

I loved my stay here! If you're looking for a quite place- this isn't for you. The daytime is calm but the bar is in full bloom starting early. It's just a couple blocks from the beach- there's a few small places to eat and a Walgreens very close. I would stay here again and have already recommended it to friends! It's not the most perfectly clean hostel- but everything works and is in good condition. And the staff is amazing and helpful. Perfect combination.

Best value you can have. Great location with walking distance to everywhere. Free food is simple but more than nothing, especially when you need it. Free sunblock, beach towel, beach chair... Very convenient. My first hostel experience and I love it.

I had an excellent stay at SoBe. The front desk staff was what made my stay! Super helpful and friendly, don't hesitate to ask them questions, everyone I encountered really wanted to make my stay a great one. The only complaint I have is that the women's bathroom upstairs was consistently out of service at 8 am for cleaning, no big deal though just had to go to the one downstairs. I will defintiely be returning next time I am in South Beach!

I've been to many hostels in the US and this one was by far my favorite!!! As a girl traveling alone the staff and people staying here would just ensure that your stay was unbelievable! Granted, if you want rest then you might not get much here it's a PARTY spot for sure right next to all the best clubs and the beautiful beach! It's incredibly located for its price! And they organize large party buses to the clubs for cheap prices you get the Miami experience and meet ppl from all over the globe

Great hostel, but definitely not for everyone. This is a party hostel, so if you're looking for a quite place to sleep - this isn't for you. The hostel arranges nights out to nightclubs for $20 which includes entry to a club that would otherwise be $60 + an hour of free drinks at the hostel. The guy organizing it literally tells you to get drunk before going 'cause drinks are like $16 for a beer in clubs. The free dinner is OK but nothing special, didn't get a chance to check out the breakfast.

I don't like leaving a bad review, but the people that worked there were not helpful when asked about good places to have brunch or dinner. The room was always left with peoples dirty bags and shoes after they had left. We were only in a 4-person room, but it had a terrible smell the entire stay. The bathrooms were clean though, and the toilet paper and paper towels were always well stocked. Kitchen facilities were poor. But a great beach less than 5 minute walk away!
