Freehand Miami is a good mix of resort meets budget hostel. It's more expensive than your typical hostel, but also cleaner and with better amenities. There is a nice pool, courtyard, bar, and it is walking distance to the beach. The food and drink are better than what you would expect from a hostel. When I was there I tried... More

If you're looking for a peaceful hotel on Miami Beach then avoid. This is NOT a hotel. It's a hostel, which is fine if that's what you want, but to say I'm disappointed and feel I've wasted my money is an understatement! The room itself was ok and for one night manageable. That's the 1star right there.

Such a lovely vibe and atmosphere in this hotel/hostel. Stayed here for 3 nights over the 4th July and we really enjoyed. We stayed in a guesthouse for a very reasonable price and we were really impressed. Room was huge and king size bed was so comfy. The pool area is nice and clean and it's only 2 blocks walk... More

This is a nice and affordable hostel to explore Miami Beach. The room was clean and air-conditioned, though the promised saftety box was not there and staff couldn't get a replacement during our stay. Breakfast is included though pretty basic. The pool area is nice and great to chill out. There are also a restaurant (which we didn't test) and... More

I came to the hostel alone for a few days, the place is clean and the stuff are nice, only thing you need to know is they don't give you a lock to pt on your locker so you can buy it from them or bring one from home. The place is very young music is on all day and... More

Pros: I stayed in an female bedroom (8 beds) and I had a great time there. The room was really pretty, clean and well maintained. Each customer in the room had a locker (take your own padlock), they also offered linens and have a kitchen. There's a nice bar and restaurant in the back, near the pool where you may... More

If you want a inexpensive accommodation, but with a fun pool and bar scene, then come check out the Freehand Miami. The hotel is was renovated to become a hostel/hotel. Some rooms are normal hotel rooms and other rooms are shared accommodations. This is a great place to come with friends as everyone gets their own bed via bunks and... More

We took a private room instead of the shared. Even though the shared also looked excellent. The private was good antique room. A little far from south beach since it's on 28th street. Ubers are good if dint rent a car. 2 blocks from the beach. 1 block from a supermarket and liquor store. The main damper was the breakfast.... More
