If you’re looking to curb your accommodations budget so you can enjoy Miami Beach's many other offerings, consider checking into one of these hostels. They boast great locations near the beach, plus style, service and all the amenities you’ll really need. Best of all, they generally include beds in small, dorm-style settings for the price of a dinner out, so you can spend your money on a fun night out on the town.

Freehand Miami

A once-defunct Art Deco hotel today has been transformed into a hip hotel/hostel with both private and shared rooms. Designed by Roman & Williams in a subtly nautical theme, the Freehand Miami has a luxurious pool area and the Broken Shaker, a famed craft cocktail bar that has been a fixture of Miami Beach’s nightlife since 2012. It also is home to 27 Restaurant and Bar, which serves seasonal farm-to-table fare inspired by Miami’s melting pot of cultures.

Generator Miami

Stylish European hostel group Generator made its U.S. debut in Miami Beach by revamping a kitschy Art Deco property on Collins Avenue, just a block from the sand. With both shared and private rooms, Generator Miami is an affordable destination in a prime Mid Beach location. The courtyard swimming pool features tropical mural art, colorful floats and a cabana-style bar with ample outdoor seating. The on-site Hoja Taqueria features an affordable menu offering a variety tacos, flautas, quesadillas and desserts, plus a few signature richer options.

Tropics Hotel & Hostel

Located in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco District on Collins Avenue, the Tropics Hotel & Hostel is a great option for budget travelers looking to enjoy some fun in the sun. You’re across the street from the beach, close to the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, and just four or five blocks away from some of the area’s hottest nightclubs and restaurants. Tropics also offers a shared full kitchen, a lovely swimming pool and both private rooms and dormitory-style accommodations.
