I had a 17 hour overnight layover in Miami and decided I didn't want to spend it in the airport. I found SBH here online and am really glad. The atmosphere in my opinion is the perfect balance between "chill" and "party". They have a small bar and some tables outside. A few locals come here to have a few drinks and its a great mix. The greatest part of SBH is the location. You can be on the beach within 5 minutes of walking. If you're looking for a fun, yet welcoming atmosphere, check it.

GOOD: Hostel is very good, they organize events every night. They give a free dinner which is good for those who are limited on budget. They have their own bar with quite a cheap beer for the South Beach area. NOT GOOD: Events are mostly - going to clubs and bars, it doesn't make people unite. I wish you organized more events indoors (playing songs, playing games etc.) so people can meet up and talk to each other. OVERALL - a good hostel!

Nice front desk people. Great little extras, like free drink, free dinner and breakfast included. The showers have undergone a renovation since the last time I was here -- very good! Excellent security.

Excellent place to stay in Miami beach, no matter if you like to party or just chill, you'll feel at home there. The lounge and the bar are very good places to make friends. Staffs are gentle and very helpful in providing info about malls, parties,places to visit and other things you may need. The hostel pretty close to the beach, less than 5 minutes walking. The only negative point is the weak wifi that doesn't work outside the lounge.

Was pretty dirty and loud. Beds were uncomfortable. Wish we spent more money for a hotel room as we didn't get much sleep here.

They try to optimise the number of beds per room, which leads to a very very tiny place for u and ur bag ( u nose is at ur neighbours feet, ur bags are next to he litter bin, u cannot move properly, u sleep so not comfortable ...). For safety, the lockers in the room are a joke. And be careful, don't leave ur stuff at the reception , anybody can go in there, grab ur valuables and leave. The security is ridiculous. The breakfast is awful. They offer dinner, that's cool though.

Cons - The kitchen is tiny and is not equipped with a cooker. There are no plates or cups. It's practically useless. The dorm I stayed in was very small and the matress was only 2'6" wide. The standard for a single bed is 3 feet. There is no space outside to chill out unless you hang out on the street at the front. Pros - the staff are generally pretty helpful and friendly. If you like organised parties this is the place to go. They have them every night.

Absolute one of the best hostels I have been staying at! Everything is just great. We had a great time and a good vacation and this hostel definitely only added to that experience. I have already recommended it to some of my friends, saying that this is the right hostel to choose, so thank you!

Good bar. Lockers under beds. Stayed just before Christmas time. Good people. Something on every night. Miami is just expensive and hostel knows to look for cheap options. Always go with them.

The hostel is very clean and the staff help us with lot of information. It also included a breakfast and dinner. The bus from airport stops at the corner of the hostel, less then 30 m walking. The hostel is a good place to stay if you don't want to spend lot of money. The only problem that i had was the noise during the night because some people talked a lot in the room or in front of the door.

It's not the cleanest place ever, the bathroom is pretty dirty (because old) but it's ok, it could be worse I guess. The food is not food, it doesn't taste good and it's not enough. Except for that it is an ok place to stay. Staff was very nice. The nightlife is pretty good too.

A very nice place and the number of rooms, has many people! Do not expect luxury or something more for $ 20. Expect people from all over wanting to make friends. Completed my trip perfectly.

Great place to stay if you wish to save money and also get to see the popular sights if Miami. They offer a good range of tours. Also, was good to have free breakfast and dinner. Not to mention was really close to the beach and wished I took more advantage of this.
