There was amazing, the staffs, localization , everything was perfect. They have party every night and the drinks are very cheap. It is very close to the beach and the party places. The breakfast and dinner are very simple, but it is free.
+very cheap(breakfast included) + good for parties etc + close to SOUTH BEACH - no WIFI in rooms, only downstairs - beds are not comfortable Its ok if u dont spend too much time in there, good location, 10 minutes from the beach!
Nothing fantastic from the outside, in fact you might walk right by it. Open the doors and you enter into a different world. Buzzing with youth from all over the world, friendly faces greet you, with a small & a nod. The decor is all made by the guests. The bar to the right is staked with people trying to get a drink, its happy hour, 2 beers $6. 2 beers + 2 hot dogs (delicious) $9. The reception has not one grumpy person, all with a smile willing to help you. Especially JAY, who is outstanding person and will try to help in any way he can, as do the other receptionist. I booked the 4 berth room. Registering is easy & quick. You get your sheets & towel & a free welcome drink of your choice from the bar. My room located on the 1st floor, clean but a bit shabby, but acceptable. A/C working, lights working, great. I choose a lower bunk. Went downstairs for my free drink. Within 30min I had made 5 new friends, USA, South Africa, Brazil, Italy & Spain. During my stay I believe I had meet someone from every country in the world. 1830 dinner time, could be anything from pasta, to roast pork, to paella, delicious and good size portions. Sleep can be a bit difficult, people coming and going, and you can hear the music & people till about 0400, if you cannot sleep. Free wifi in the lounge/reception/bar area. Very good signal. Breakfast changes between bagel or waffles with juice, coffee & fruit. Ample. All areas are kept spotless by a tireless cleaning staff. Bus to Miami airport stops 10m from hostel. $2.25 gets you there, in about 45min. Also good service to the rest of MIAMI. Ocean Drive one street away with beautiful beaches, breathtaking. All this bed, breakfast & dinner for about $25 per night. Could you find anywhere better value for money.
The Sobe Hostel is awesome! I was a little afraid because it was my fisrt time staying in hostel, and i really like it. I've met a lot of good people and have a lot os fun with them. It was a very great experience. Hope someday I'll get back there!
SoBe was an awesome first hostel experience. The staff are so helpful, friendly and obliging. They do their best to accommodate any special requests. They are very patient, polite and friendly in their dealings with guests. People from all over the world were connecting, sharing thoughts, ideas and lives. The breakfast of waffles, fruit, juice and coffee was filling. The dinner was a rice, meat, and bean dish nicely seasoned. SoBe offers a fun environment.
The hostel is in desperate need of a renovation. The furnishings are old and tattered. The space is poorly designed and crammed. The rooms and bathrooms do not have any space or place to put thinks. The room I was in had 4 bunk beds in a very small space. There was a couple of hooks and lockers under the bed. There were no shelves, no place to put luggage and no where to sit. One very bright over head light. The bathroom was disgusting, 2 out of 3 toilets did not have a seat and there were 5 showers crowded into a small space directly across from the toilets. The fan covers were filthy and looked like they had not been cleaned in years. The whole hostel should be cleaned at least twice a day and the bathrooms are only cleaned once a day and the rooms less often. The hostel is noisy Day and night. There is no standard or signage reminding guest to be quiet after a st time. People were yelling and carting on in the hallways all night long. It was horrible.
Socially on point Safe clean and centrally located. Totally fun place to stay. Easy beach access, Management is very curtious, long term employees who make every effort to make your stay an enjoyable one !!!!!
Fun, social environment. Customers were from all over the world. Most staff spoke Spanish as well as English. Very close to beach. Of course it's noisy, duh! Bring earplugs! The place was always being cleaned. Food wasn't great but it was free and there is McDonalds and Burger King in the neighborhood as other cheap options.
It was absolutely horrible. The window in our room was broken, we asked for a blanket and they said they were no left so we were freezing the whole night, my friend was shaking in the morning because it was way too cold in the room. When I went back in my room to relax around 8pm the 1st night, I found my towel, shampoo and toothpaste on the floor. I went to reception to ask why and he said that he had to clean the room for new comers without any excuse... The bathroom was absolutely disgusting, hair everywhere, no cleaning during the day so I let you imagine how it is at the end of the day... They also claim that you can get a free diner but actually you have to queue an hour before you get a ticket (only 30 tickets available) and eat at 6.30pm. We never achieved to get a ticket despite a long queue .... We all were very negatively surprised and do not know how SoBe Hostel can get this rate. Definitely overrated hostel... I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND IT even if you are just in Miami to party and no sleep.
Quite surprising find in Miami Beach. Came early from my flight and since the room was not ready yet I went to the beach and promptly at two pm the bed was available, front desk agents are quite nice. This hostel will cover all the basic needs for your stay in South Beach, you have a bed, a shower, free Breakfast, and dinner. I was pleasantly surprised with the WiFi usage: the only place where you can use is in the lobby. That is the only way in which sobe Hostel makes you interact with other people, forcing you to be in the common area, next to another person and surely chat is ensured. Just brilliant. Now, the part of human interactions. Just formidable. I was able to chill with people all around the world. Having a few beers ( 6 dlls for 2 beers) and then going to events to discos and pub crawls This is not your average Hostel, is a party, social, layback place to enjoy your vacations and interact with people.
