Posh South Beach Hostel, a South Beach Group Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For what and where it is, you can't get any better. The only complaint I have is noise. Noise from the street and other bars, Latin music bumping until 3am. Noise from being in a dorm and close to the bathrooms and showers. This is my first experience with a hostel, and very much appreciate the "poshness," but I now know to ask for a bunk far away from the facilities.

Im not going to go into detail but it just wasnt my thing. Im not a fan of inconsiderate people which helped motivate my decision to go with an airbnb right away. I felt like i was back in boot camp

This hostel is very close to the beach, bus stop to downtown miami, close to all restaurant & cafe. So everything is perfect

I was very pleased with my stay here at Posh. The staff is very friendly, helpful and have personality ! (Estzer, Monica, Gabriele, George, Ghisline). There are more but I didn't get to know all their names. The staff makes your stay even more enjoyable! Really attentive and look out for you. The hostel is VERY clean! Ghisline had it sparkling every day! Things are constantly being cleaned. The location is one block from the beach. There is a bus that goes around South Beach for 25 cents ! You can walk everywhere. We really enjoyed the gorgeous pool, super-clean roomy kitchen and large fridge, the free happy hour next door at Whitelaw lounge was very fun! The bartenders created a great atmosphere. Nate and Ethan have very outgoing personalities and made us feel like family. I liked the other bartenders as well. Try the chicken taco's there, so yummy! The shuttle back and forth was very useful. As with any hostel, take earplugs if you are sensitive. I sleep with white noise on an Ipod shuffle on all my stays in hostels. I don't hear a peep! I just clip it to my pj's. I had bed 9 and 10. I like the area in the back. At first I had a top bunk but than changed to a lower one. The drawer provided fits a lot ! The price - excellent ! I loved it here!

Difficult to locate, not much facilities Rooms are clean, and location is great Have free shuttle to airport

I've probably stayed in about five hostels, including this one, and this was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff was awesome and the place is very clean. There are great amenities like WiFi, a rooftop pool, free happy hour and beach towel rentals next door! You get a towel but no washcloth so bring your own. Also the location is perfect. Right in the heart of south beach and only one block from Ocean Dr. and Wet Willies. The beds are not as comfortable as hotel beds so I don't think I'd stay here for a week or more, but it's great for a quick/short getaway!

This was a really nice hostel for quality of stay. The common room is well furnished and aesthetically pleasing. The beds are a 6 on a scale of 1-10 comfort. It is clean and you are hidden away from most of the noise from the bars and clubs on the beach while still being a 1 minute walk from it all.

My friends had booked their Miami trip months in advanced and I booked mine 2 months prior. At first I was hesitant because I've never stayed in a hostile, but when I arrived it was nice. I had trouble locating it but I asked around and they were able to help. They have dormitory of 20/30 and 8 ppl. I stood in the room with 8 ppl. If you are going to be out and just need a place to crash then this is the place to stay. My friends stayed at the Majestic Hotel and you could barely move around in there. They even said next time they should stay at Posh. There are a lot of people from all around the world who stood there and I had the pleasure of meeting 2 from my dormitory. Most of the time the place was empty because everyone is out. The place was quiet and clean. Will definitely be staying here next year on my next Miami trip.

It was my first time at a hostel, and Posh set the high standard. The staff was very friendly and informative, the place was clean throughout the day, and the people I've met were very nice. The location of Posh was perfect for those that want to be near the action of South Beach. The beach was right behind the hostel and a great hot spot. Overall, they made my experience amazing.

This Hostel is in the prime area of south beach. It's also got a fantastic roof-top pool. All of the other guests are interesting young people, and there are club promoters that hook you up with great deals. I went to Liv for $35 in a limo plus 2 hours open bar at the Whitelaw Hotel with these guys! The bathrooms feel like you're showering in a high-end gym or spa. It's all very nice and feels almost brand new. There's also a gorgeous gourmet kitchen for communal use as well. If you have 1-2 people looking for a cheap place to crash, this is better than AirBnB. If you have 3 or more, you're better off just getting a regular hotel.

Is nice hostel very cool people. You can meet there, the Staff was very helping all the time! I recommend the hostel for all the people who just want to relax, and sleep

Very comfortable hostel. It's located close to the beach. It was perfect place to sleep and to relax.

This hostel is a great value - continental breakfast is included, it's about a 3 minute walk to the gay beach, and the service is just very friendly and attentive. The facilities are also maintained throughout the day so it's pretty clean.

Stayed in a hostel before in Miami and it was absolutely disgusting. This one however was amazing. The bathroom, and shower area seemed new, very well maintenanced and clean. Very clean throughout the whole place actually, seemed like the maids were constantly cleaning. The nicestand most helpful managers. Beautiful kitchen area and lounge area. And the best part is it isn't a party hostel so u can definetely get some rest if you need it or you're in the perfect location to hit ocean blvd or one of the local clubs. Pretty bit beds for a hostel, I'm 5'11" and had plenty of room. Huge locker storage space for your belongings. Complimentary breakfast could greatly be improved but other than that, pretty perfect.

Upon entry this hostel seemed very "POSH". The decor was nice and very clean. Gabrielle took me downstairs where my room would be, he was very pleasant and gave me plenty of info. The bed and linens were clean (except for the blanket which smelled of feet or corn chips), had I complained im sure I would have gotten a clean one along with an apology. I opted to leave it in the drawer and use a flat sheet as a cover. Great location also!

I use the earplugs to sleep,but is Ok for price, is clean, the people are friendly!

Contemporary and clean, you won't be disappointed.

Loved the style ! It was my first time in this kind of place, was great.

Beds are double stacked 20, 30 to a room, and you have to go through rooms to get to other rooms. There is no privacy and it's noisy all times. It's a hostel hostel, lots of Europeans drinking. However, it's cheap, there's a nice pool, it's clean, there's some breakfast kind-of, and there's a free happy hour next door.

was going on a cruise. did not want to spend alot of money on a hotel so decided to try a hostel. now some people do not pay attention when they are booking on this site. a hostel is one big room with lots of beds and shared shower area. men and women live side by side you can look over the your shoulder in bed and see the other person in the other bed. so if you are looking for pirvacy forget it. this place is clean. and offers a roof top pool and happy hour. it is located 1 block away from the beach and about 10 min away from the cruise ships. it offers free transportation to and from the airport perfect for people going on cruises who are not looking to spend alot of money and dont have boundary issues.
