Miami Hostels: Cheapest Of South Beach Options

Miami Hostels are great options for those whose priorities are price, party and beach. Yes, there are hostels in South Beach! Even though the area is packed with swanky and luxury properties, the budget minded still find plenty of choices in Miami Beach!

South Beach Hostels: Dormitory at Posh South Beach Hostel

In fact, many Miami hostels are in fantastic locations a couple of minutes walk from the surf and sand, the cafes, shopping, and mind-boggling nightlife. If you want affordable access to South Beach or Miami Beach and don't mind the shared sleeping arrangements, lack of privacy, noise, and everything that goes with a youth hostel, then read on!

Booking.com

Youth Hostels in Miami like everywhere around the world, offer incredible value, little privacy and a very lively vibe where you get to meet like-minded travelers from all over the world. And for many, this is the reason they opt for this kind of shared accomodation.

Expect a lot of partying going on at most of the youth hostels specially in the South Beach area, with plenty of activities, party buses, bbqs, bar-hopping, happy hours and open bars arranged by the hostels or their tour desks on a daily basis. If it is peace and quiet you are seeking, stay somewhere else.

In terms of the accomodation, pay attention to the kind of sleeping arrangements offered by a particular Hostel you are considering which could range from female-only, male-only and mixed dormitory rooms, some with bathrooms for each room, some with shared bathrooms, including coed bathrooms. Some hostels also offer private rooms with private bathrooms. For a better chance of a "quieter" experience (good luck) try to request a room AWAY from the bar area if possible where loud music and clatter will be going into the wee hours...

All Miami hostels offer free wifi, some only on the common areas, some throughout the hostel including the dormitory rooms. Many will have internet cafes and computers for the guests' use.

Most hostels will provide either safe deposit boxes or lockers. Bring your own padlock to be on the safe side and NEVER leave valuables unattended, i.e. phones charging or backpacks laying around.

In terms of cleanliness, even though most properties may strive to keep the spaces clean and tidy, everybody's experience could be different depending on your "roommates", this is of course all part of the "hosteling" experience.

Do take advantage of all that might be on offer, the free breakfast (some might be very basic), the kitchen facilities (most likely a fridge and microwave), the bars, game rooms, lounges and terraces, some even with swimming pools! These are great spots to mingle with others, Miami hostels do attract a very international mix of guest, enjoy!

If your visit coincide with one of these events, book early! Please note that rates could be considerably higher during these times.

  • Spring Break, which normally intersects with the Easter Holidays, Ultra Music Festival and all sorts of Music Festivals

  • Memorial Day Weekend, with two major events happening over the weekend, the Air and Sea Show and Urban Beach Week, the earlier you book the better.

  • 4th of July, Independence Day celebrations and fireworks taking place in many parts throughout Miami and Miami Beach.

  • New Year's Eve, one of the busiest weeks of the year with the Orange Bowl crowds on top of party revelers...
