The service was worse than expected. The staff was very rude and disrespectful and made no effort to change their attitude the entire stay there. They were also understaffed during daytime hours. It took an hour or more to get service poolside. I will NEVER come back to this hostel again. Nor will I recommend it to anyone. The only reason I stayed there was because the bar was rated among top 50 in Miami. The drink looked cool but was disgusting. It's not about looks but more about qualify. FU

The hostel is pretty good...super clean, really confortable, great location...it has a incredible bar and a nice pool...the only downside I'd say is the security...anyone can access the entire hostel...my friend's Ipad was stolen from his locker...

The pool was amazing! Really close to the beach! Far from bars and food. transportation is average in Miami so it was slightly annoying. The in house bar was good value though.

Great experience at Freehand hostel. Bedroom is clean and beds are confortable in comparison with the average of hostels. The shared environment is relaxing, beautiful and clean. The swimming pool is amazing. Just wished there were more activities sponsored by the hostel.

Friendly staff. Located close to beach.Good breakfast. The only problem I had was that i was on top bunk and felt very unsafe coming down as the ladder was between two beds.

Location was good but so are most places in sobe. Courtyard of the hostel is good with a little pool and some good music although crowded at the wkend, residents at the hostel have to wait to be able to have access to the pool and bar which is ridiculous. Rooms are far too small and smell of mould and humidity an it is impossible to open a window so never fresh air, old a/c blowing which is ur only hope of some sleep if nobody turns it off, all in all average, shouldnt have to pay more than 30$

Pros: So many pros. This is the most comfortable hostel I have ever stayed at. The beds are big and comfortable and there is excellent attention to detail everywhere. There is also a nice pool, bar and social area. Cons: The only con I can think of is the vibe isn't for backpackers, but a mix of hostel/hotel people. However, its still an excellent place to relax, party, meet people and most importantly, sleep comfortably.

I think it's a 2 stars hotel as it has high standards for a hostel. Swimming pool is a big plus.

The restaurant is nice. But to be friendly is not the biggest strenght of the hostel. And stealing is a problem there.

Did not like this place at all. Go somewhere else. I had real issues with the staff. They were npt friendly and felt like they were just shepharding a bunch of goats. Ask them a question and the answers were always half ass. Atmosphere? Nonexistent

This hotel has a great atmosphere, although not the typical backpacker crowd. The garden is beautiful and there is plenty of space to hang out around the pool all day. The bar is great, even if expensive, but that's just the case everywhere in Miami Beach. Dorms are spacious with private bathrooms. On another note, the front desk was usually understaffed with often five or more people waiting in line. Also, don't use their partner laundry service, I had to pay 20 dollars for one load of clothes.

An excellent hostel - very trendy and stylish, with funky furniture and lighting and music in the lounge / lobby area. And a beautiful outdoor garden / bar area by the swimming pool. The rooms were clean and with great attention to detail - even a couch and coffee table. And the staff were very attentive and helpful. The only real issue is that the bar is open to the public - and the public that frequents aren't really so social, in that they stay within their own little 'VIP' circle.

Loved this hostel, one of the best I've ever been to. The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff were super friendly. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm which was spacious and clean and had two ensuites, the beds were large and the linen smelled good, you could hardly tell you were staying in a dorm. Close to the beach and lots bus lines. Would highly recommend to anyone.
