I loved this place, the beds had their own little private shelf by the pillow with your own power outlets!! So you can leave your phone charging overnight by you in an isolated area without having to leave it in the bathroom and spend the night worrying about it. Beds were comfortable and the place has a really really nice... More

We stayed for two nights in a pvt room (4 bunk beds) at Freehand. It was reasonable price, the beds were comfy , rooms were clean, free breakfast was suitable and the outside patio/nightclub after 6 was great.....however the drinks like anywhere in miami were very over priced. All and I mean every single staff member we ran into was... More

I LOVE THIS PLACE, it feels like home. At night, the outdoor garden and pool turned into a home party with great music and people having fun together. And the kitchen has everything, salt, pepper, oil and even pasta. it's very convenient to cook there. The service they provided was very satisfying. We once had a problem with the flush... More

Freehand is located where the old Indian Creek Hotel was, one of the the first hotels in Miami beach. Art-Deco/American Folk, its restoration is awesome and a model world class hostel. The rooms are clean and the atmosphere quite relaxed, it really made my stay enjoyable. Poolside bar area includes sun chairs, with great bar and restaurant service. A world... More

Great Hostel, with some nice common areas around. the pool is a good place to sit and catch some rays but there were a few to many mosquitos to full relax. The beds are really comfy, but as the building is an authentic art deco much of the plumbing is a but dated. The bar is a great place to... More

I've been hosted at Freehand Hostel for 5 days in february 2015. The room was really nice, like on the pictures. The Broken Shaker is awesome, very good drinks ans really cool barmen. Also, everybody were very friendly with me. As I said on the title, very good atmosphere. I'm looking forward to stay there again.

One of the perks of Freehand Miami is that it has one of Miami Beach's best cocktail bars (The Broken Shaker--finalist for a James Beard Award!) right in the backyard. Plenty of locals come to the bar as well, and so my best friend and I struck up several great conversations that way. The hostel is a bit of a... More

This is a true marriage of hostel AND bar/lounge. Which sounds great, sure, if you love unless you like peace & quiet, reflection time in the evenings, privacy, and sound sleep. But the place is cheap, the courtyard is gorgeous and chill, and you are about 2 blocks from the beach (but not much else). I mean, this is a... More

this place is a bit far from the main crowded area. so,, there is nothing much to do near this hostel. but, if you expect this place is a escape from the noise of the crowded area, it's your mistake. there is a bar on the first floor and it opens until 2am. and this bar is open to everyone...
