The combination of multiple particle identification systems along with the excellent tracking capabilities makes ALICE a unique tool to study QCD matter at high-temperature and density. The measurements of light flavor hadron production and multi-particle correlations over a broad transverse momentum ($p_{\mathrm{T}}$) range from 100 MeV/c up to 20 GeV/c, are the main soft probes of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), system created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions. In this talk an overview of the ALICE results on light flavor hadron production, azimuthal flow, long-range angular correlations and femtoscopy measurements in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 2.76$ TeV will be presented. The results will be compared to hydrodynamic calculations. In addition, particle production will be also compared to results from statistical models. In order to show the evolution of the soft probes with the size of the collision system the results from the pp and p-Pb collisions will also be presented.
