Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Hostel Type – Party vs. Boutique Hostel: You will find here a wide range of quality in hostels. From youth hostels, hostels for families to boutique and crazy party hostels, as well as super-budget-low-quality places. Make sure you pick your right hostel type! Otherwise, you will not enjoy your stay! Rock Hostel is a backpacker place, Freehand Hostel is more a hipsterish place for female solo-traveler. In this guide we share a hostel for each traveler type, don’t you worry!
Let’s jump right in and encourage you to discover the Magic City with an experience-led stay at Generator Miami – the best Miami hostel!
You will literally be sleeping 100 feet from the beach. Oh yeah.
This hostel chain decided to open its doors first and foremost in Miami. We couldn’t agree on a better destination.
Like all of their hostels, at Generator Miami you can expect to enjoy:
On-site bar and cafe
Female only dorm rooms
Outdoor swimming pool
And with the swimming pool comes an inclusive beach towel and sun lounger. With a pool bar right by the water, we’re not sure you’ll go anywhere else.
This is an 8-level property, so it’s not exactly cute and cosy. But that’s not the point.
The atmosphere here is all about the buzz, bringing travellers together to create new friendships and lasting memories. They also have Miami singles bars.
When the hostel is at capacity, you’ll have over 300 people to mingle with!
Looking for a great gay hostel Miami? This is certainly a top choice.
Good to know: the 14% tax is not included in the room rate.
At both of the on-site restaurant-bars you can keep the fun times flowing until 2am each morning!
This is what makes the range of rooms so good – all travellers types are welcome and made to feel at home.
6-bed dorms offer more of a social vibe, whereas 4-bed dorms are quieter. Yet every bed offers a privacy shield, so it doesn’t really matter which you choose. There is also a selection of private rooms. It is the best hostel Miami has to offer!
Location: In the heart of the South Beach District, just steps away from the iconic Miami Beach front. Surrounded by city skyscrapers and the Miami vibe, you’re never far from everything you could possibly need.
Situated between Miami’s sun-kissed beaches and Art Deco buildings you’ll come across Rock Hostel.
“Think comfort, security and fun all under one roof!”
These guys are redefining what it means to budget travel.
A combination of modern comforts and super location are taking the place of squeaky beds and mould on the ceiling. Budget travellers, eat your heart out!
Let’s take a closer look at these modern comforts…
Vast communal spaces
Secure & spacious rooms
Your stay is made extra special with the added bonus of organised wine tastings, boat trips and nights out – sign up to your preferred activity with friendly staff.
Important: there are no private rooms here, only shared dorms.
Spread over 6, 8 and 10-bed dorm options, there is also a female only option in each size.
So much effort has gone in to making these rooms super comfy.
Get ready for an en-suite, air conditioning, a small kitchenette (with sink) and a personal bed light and plug. Sorted.
There is also a handy communal kitchen on site if you fancy cooking.
Location: In the heart of the world famous Art Deco district, Supermarket Miami Beach, surrounded by 20th-century gems. Gianni Versace’s mansion is a 5-minute stroll, and epic salsa dance halls and rooftop bars surround you. It is also 4-minute walk to Art Deco Supermarket Miami Beach. Ask the hostel in advance about a pick up from the airport.

Where is a good place to stay with a car in Miami?
Honestly, we don't recommend renting a car whilst visting Miami - parking is both expensive and difficult to find. Plus, not many hostels offer parking. It's so easy to get around as long as you pick a central hostel: no car needed.

Coconut Grove is the oldest neighborhood in Miami and great for families. It's central and has a bohemian vibe, plus plenty of parks for the kids.
