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.

Great party hostel, Great location. BUT, not for anyone who wants to relax. Great drink prices at the bar and good free dinners! Beds are very average. VERY GOOD VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY. I would definitely stay here again!

It's not as new and clean as they show in the pictures. The bathrooms get really dirty during the day and they only clean it in the morning.

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.
