You get what you pay for! The hostel is alright, not 100% sanitary (seen a staff member wipe blood off the floor with a dry cloth, washrooms are not the greatest). Food is average. The $20 events/"night out" that the promoters run is lots of fun and totally worth the money. Some of the staff needs to improve their attitudes... More

The cards used to unlock all of the doors, including the toilets, were not working. Every single time I needed to go to the bathroom I had to walk to the front desk where they would reset my card, and on the way back to the room I had to get it reset again. We arrived at 2am and when... More

Free breakfast is good, and the new free dinners are amazing! Air con is ice cold which is what you want after a humid day/night out. South beach a 5 minute walk... More

I came to south beach from Chicago just for the beach and sobe hostel made it perfect by being next to the beach. That's my hotel from now on when in south beach.it feels like my apartment at home. Clean,cozy lobby area.nice relaxing lobby and lounge area.the rate is affordable. Overall so much better than a stuffy hotel.

First time staying in a hostel so I was very hesitant! It is a clean and basic hostel as expected for the price. Pros - Clean, cheap, free breakfast (bagel, fruit and a drink), helpful staff and good location. Cons - Noisy at night, beds were uncomfortable, bathrooms were not ideal! Advice would be to ask for 2nd floor room... More
