Stayed here alone for 5 nights back in November 2015 in one of the 8 beds girl dorms, and it was better than I expected! I arrived late at night and that was no problem. The staff is super nice and the place out front is a great way to meet other (mostly young) people. It's close to the beach... More

This place was my first hostel experience. I read the reviews and I thought I'd give it a shot as I needed affordable housing in South Beach. This hostel is newer and it was actually quite nice! Very clean hallways, communal space and rooms. I shared a room with 7 other women and I was very comfortable staying in the... More

Brief stopover…on way to Costa Rica. I literally got in late afternoon, went for a run, made some buddies, tagged along with them on a night out, got in about 3am. Woke up at 5am to get to airport. Seemed a really good buzz about the place, and friendly staff/customers. Some people had been there several days- and loved it.... More

In my opinion the location is good enough! The hostel was fine in general terms: Good price, clean, well located, easy to access and the staff guys were so kind and helpful, however I strongly recommend not to take the tours at the hostel, it looks like a good deal but at the end is not cheap!

We spent 4 days here and it was great. Friendly/attentiuive staff. Basic free breakfast which was not bad. The bar was perfect with daily happy hour. The beach is less then a 5 min walk and there are plenty of shopping stores near by. It's a very good location. Overall, it was a great stay and will be back!

We arrived and were greeted by the most friendly staff. They are very attentive of their tenants which is nice. It's location is perfect only a few blocks away from the beach. You are able to walk almost everywhere. There is a convenient not too expensive parking across the street with 24 hour access which is nice and the staff... More

I stopped in a 8 bed mixed dorm. Comfy beds, en suite room. Great location a couple minutes from south beach. Nice bar and social area outside. Only minor fault was that the staff are a bit hit and miss. Some really helpful but others unfortunately disinterested. Overall a really good stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beds&Drinks Hostel is a fully renovated art deco building in the heart of Miami Beach that was designed by the renowned art deco restoration guru Allan Shlulman. It is arguably the hippest place on South Beach and has been designed with the young and adventurous traveler in mind in terms of location and comfort. Everything at the property is new and ready for your enjoyment as we just finished a 16 month construction project to make this building the best it can be!
