Overall the hostel was okay. The staff was really friendly and involved you in a lot of activities and parties, which is nice when you are traveling alone. However, what really disappointed me in the hostel was that they make a lot of promises that they don't keep or they don't give you all the information they should. Its seem nice at first sight, but there are a lot of strings attached.

The staff were pleasant but useless at suggestions. They couldn't suggest somewhere good for dinner, as for activities i was suggested the hop on hoop off bus and the aquarium, cause you know, thats why people come to Miami. The bunk beds were super high and wobbly as hell and i could here the music all night. It would have been nice to have a quiet space for people to go. I do like how they had someone to take you out every night and dinner was also free. Don't think Id stay again.

This was my first hostel stay and I was glad I chose SoBe! The staff were friendly, the Hangout made for a fun atmosphere, and they offered free dinner every night!

First and foremost, South Beach Hostel is a party hostel. If your aim is to visit and explore south beach but aren't interested in getting drunk every night, I'd say to look elsewhere. Conversely, if parties are your thing, then I think this is probably the best one in the area for it. They have nightly events, free meals, and keep things lively. Rooms are average-sized, beds are small, and in-room amenities are lacking. In-room wifi doesn't work. Restrooms could be much cleaner, though.

Overall a good stay. Average hostel beds that are not very comfortable. Showers have no shelves inside them, and only one hook outside them. Not very private with just a shower curtain between you and the rest of the common bathroom. Staff were average, helpful if you asked them and let you do your thing otherwise. Breakfast was average; fruit, bagel, coffee/tea. The free dinner is a huge plus. I thought it was clean. Location is ok, the hostel bar was great. Would stay here again.

We were four people and booked a 4-room, they made a mistake and put us in different rooms. We lost an afternoon To talk with the others room's guests To move for the same room. Just one guy at the front desk, always busy...

There was a hostel-organized party trip to anoher hot nightclub location in South Beach every night. The included food was unexpected good and diversified. The location of the hostel is great. Unfortunately the mattresses on the beds were uncomfortable and even a little painful. The extreme loud music from the bar continued nearly all night long (every night). In summary its a great spot when your interested in Party, when you a looking for a place to find rest and a good sleep better stay away.

I had a great stay at this hostel. The atmosphere was fun and there was always heaps to do and the location was central to everything. The staff was exceptionally helpful, especially Jeremiah at the front desk who was super friendly and we all had a great time on the party nights out. Will definitely stay again next time I'm in South Beach :)

Loved this Backpacker. The staff is very very helpful. Free Breakfast and free Dinner is great also they organize Partynights every day. Of Course it can get loud in the Nights and the beds are not comfortable at all but for me this is a typical Backpacker where you can easy meet people. Will definitely come back.

This honestly has been one of my worse hostel experiences, the odor of sweat and musk extended all the way till the check in desk ( normally for hostel is only in restrooms). The beds were the worse you hurt yourself just getting into bed and no comment if you get the top bunk !! That being said Sebastian at night was extremely helpful in everything we had questions and the location! Location! Is one of the best, don't forget to eat in LA playa supermarket chicken and rice for 4 bucks.

I like the stay at the hostel, and I would recommend it (not for everyone, tough) . I think the value for money, most staff and facility on the reception were great. What I least liked was the bedroom. I found it too small (small spacing between beds), which make it hard when every body is in the bedroom, and give limited room for managing personal stuffs. The storage below the bed was not practical, and a little annoying. A place to momentarily keep clothes/stuffs in the bath would be nice.

I booked this hostel last minute, didn't do to much investigation as it had a 82% positive which is usually pretty good for hostelworld. No parking, which usually isn't a problem for most, but it is 25$ for 24 hour parking. The bunk beds were pretty awful even by hostel standards. It was just a ratty party hostel, so the best things about this place is the bar in the lobby.The dinner consisted of yellow rice with chicken chunks, no vege option not even a tortilla. A lot better options out there

Great place to stay close to all of South Beach´s attractions. Breakfast and even dinner are included and they take travelers out to bars and nightclubs with drink specials every night. Clean and friendly place for those traveling on a budget. I would stay here again.

Great hostel! It is perfect to meeting new people and partying. There is always someone who hangs around and wants to talk or just to share a beer. Not perfect for people who want very quite vacations.
