ok that in the days of music week everything is surcharged but... The WIFI never worked good. 1 toilet at the floor for 50 people is not enough! The dinner included is not a dinner.. The quality of the breakfast is far below 0!ç

Pretty cool place. You mainly stay here for 2 things - the location near to the beach/bars/clubs and the party atmosphere. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and around 10 minutes to Ocean Drive. The hostel does a good job of organising nightlife, club tickets, pool parties, pub crawls, etc and the bar has cheap drinks and is good for the pre party. Staff go above and beyond to help you. Rooms and bathroom are really small and cramped - barely enough space in the room for people's bags.

The best place if you want to party and have fun! The staff is always very attentive and provides you with tips and helpful information; the place is very safe and it's only a few blocks from the beach, bars and restaurants; the beds are not very comfortable but it's not that serious if you arrive always late after some drinks.

The bedsheets and towel smelled weird. The air-conditioning in my room was super loud.

Okay let me say: Location is perfect, staff excellent, breakfast and dinner is great idea . For me that was what I like about the hostel. What I didn't like: Very very samll room, no windows to open so it smell, bed was so bad, not clean, bathrooms not clean enough, sooooooo noisy ( the have a party every night, I know some people gonna love that) So overall if you there to party go ahead, if you looking for relax don't think about.

The only good thing about this place is its location. Horrible beds, horrible bathrooms and the party tour sucks; they'll take you to certain bars which are not popular at all (probably because the bar business is only the hostel guests).

This hostel was awesome. They organise parties for every night. The staff are all great people, very friendly and happy to have a chat. Thomas was the best and the free dinner was always really good. Beds were a bit uncomfortable but you get over that!

super duper amenities, easy layout and a good vibe. i had an early flight so although i wasn't there to "party", i was far away enough from the common area to get a good amount of sleep :) the staff were helpful and the beds were pretty comfy too ^_^

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.

Nice place and not too far from the beach. Atmosphere is nice and they take you out to parties every night. Met a lot of wonderful people, would definitely come back

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.

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!
