Whoever designed Freehand Miami deserves an award, it is so tastefully designed and with travellers in mind. Location: a short walk from Lincoln Mall and lots of restaurants - try Maoz Vegetarian for cheap felafel's. You can get a bus down to South Beach but it is harder getting back, it is a really enjoyable ride with the comfortable citi... More

Great location, close to the beach. For those who rent a car, there is no parking but it's easy to park in the street. There is a pool and a pub in the hostel. The breakfast is not great. The staff is very helpful.

Great hostel. Stayed in dorm...2 bunk / 4 person. Definitely worth the value at under $45 per night. If weekends ...rate more so the choice b/w hostel or hotel is up to your preference. Beds comfy, very clean...housekeeping on duty all day. Great pool area. Local cafe / supermarket for food too. Breakfast is good to wake up to....then hit... More

After backpacking a lot and living in dorms for almost a year it was my first hostel experience in the US. I must say the Freehand is amazing. Really nice location, close to the beach and just a 20 minute walk/5$cap ride to south beach. The staff members try to answer you any question possible and have great recommendations of... More

Had an amazing first experience staying in a hostel. Great location and affordable price plus relaxed atmosphere and different people from around the world which you get to meet. Excellent patio and pool area which makes the hostel even better. Super good for solo travellers. Everything was good except showers.

My friend and I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm here and it was perfect for our needs. Big beds, lockers (bring your own padlock), bed sheets, towels, AC and private bathroom. Breakfast is included and is OK (pastry and a piece of fruit, juice / coffee). Great location - a few minutes walk to the beach and a short... More

My fiancé and I stayed here with some friends and couldn't be happier with our time spent there. The location is perfect (a block from the beach and a $5 cab ride from the heart of south beach), the people working there were very friendly and helpful, the other guests helped create a fun and social atmosphere, and our room...

I was traveling alone and was a little nervous because I arrived very late and had never stayed at a hostel. I arrived at 1am and the staff was there to check me in. Someone is on staff 24 hours. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The bar was open until 2am and there were... More

Excellent Hostel!!! I sent a group of students traveling for research purposes to Miami and they could not have been happier and more pleased. Staff is excellent, great location and amazing service. I will definitely will recommend Freehand to everyone.

As a lone traveller I didn't know what to expect in Miami. My stay at the Freehand was one of the best things I did in Florida. I met amazing people and still keep in contact with them today. The hotel/backpackers itself was amazing. The staff at the front desk know how to talk to you and make you feel... More
