The new guest house was very nice except the placing of the toilets wasn't very well thought out....little room to actually sit in the direction pointed as even at 5"4' my knees were almost touching the wall. As well, there should be a full length mirror placed somewhere in the room.The guest robes were a very nice touch and the bed and the pillows were very soft. Most of the front desk staff was nice but the girl that checked us in (Asian girl) she wasn't very friendly needs CSR training.


Thanks very much, it was a very pleasant stay. Best hostel in Miami

Hi, Thanks for the review! We're glad you enjoyed your time at the Freehand! -Management Team


Stupidly expensive near weekend - US$185+taxes for a night. Hostelworld does not include the hidden fees (ended up paying over $50 more at checkin than was actually quoted) Clientele is mostly from the US, and for some reason seems to be much older than most hostels i've been in (lots of people 40+) Rooms were good Remember to bring a big lock for the lockers Close to a local food store, but no decent supermarket around Facilities clean and well-maintained Pastries and fruit for breakfast


Great Place to stay!

I LOVED this hostel! I stayed in a Female-only quad and the room was very spacious, clean, and had a private bathroom. The hostel was also conveniently located right off of Collins Ave between North and South Beach. It is slightly pricey but definitely worth it, although it is much cheaper the farther in advance you book. Also, their bar/restaurant, The Broken Shaker, is known as one of the trendiest bars in Miami Beach, and I loved the atmosphere. Highly recommended!!

I thought the hostel and the staff were perfect. My only comment would be that perhaps they could put 2 staff members on the front desk from breakfast time till maybe 10pm. There is always a big line, which is not where you want to spend your time in Miami. Apart from that, loved it and would definitely stay there again!

Hi there, Thanks for the feedback - we value your opinion. Hope to see you again soon! -Management Team


The employees were unfriendly, not motivated and unhelpful! We had to tell them 4 times to change our soapbox and clean the dead cockroach! Too much money for no service, never ever again!


My first taste of hostel life -- now my expectations will be high for future ones! The pool / bar in the courtyard was the happening place to be and attracts many locals. My visit coincided with Spring Break, so there were a lot of American College Students. However, there was a good mix of international young adults. There are not a lot of clubs or items of the like in this part of Miami Beach, easy to get to though. The yoga on the beach was a lovely addition. The beds were very comfortable.


Close to the beach, clean and comfortable, friendly staff


Nicest hostel on South Beach. Great atmosphere out in the bar. Amazing breakfast. Only negatives were the bar was pricey and the place was a ways from the action.
