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!


Good atmosphere, good location, good breakfast. Very friendly staff - would definitely recommend.


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

Fun pre drinks. Always organising events. Not the best rooms, very small. But you should be enjoying yourself out of your room anyway great place to stay!


The atmosphere is quality and the hostel are always arranging activities to do. The room's were decent. Located right by the beach and easy to get to from the airport.


Greate place, always clean, good people, great location, Is very recomendable !!


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!


Very good and the hostel took us out to one of the best nightclub in Miami. The staff is nice and fun too


Amazing hostel, atmosphere and party's...thanks SoBE crew. SoBe hostel has the best atmosphere/vibe and friendliest staff you will find anywhere. Stayed here for one week(from the UK) in Feb 2015 and met so many amazing people from all over the world. Room mates from the USA, Brazil and Venezuela were all so cool and respectful. Special mention to the legend Alexis on the bar and Mariano, super friendly staff that will go the extra mile.


Great stay in the hostel. Very good atmosphere if you travel by yourself and want to meet people. Very good deal: every meal is free!


Free dinner was brilliant but the location isn't the best
