Property Description

Freehand Miami is the hotel for today’s traveler — combining convenience (a 5-minute walk from Miami Beach, and less than 1 mile from the nightlife of South Beach) with modern comforts, like an outdoor terrace with a pool, two craft cocktail bars and a seasonal restaurant. It’s both an escape from the bustle of the strip and an ideal access point to the best of the city.

Choose from either community-style or standard guest rooms, all of which include a private bathroom, lockers, and a desk (plus cable TV in standard rooms).

The property is close to many excellent Miami bars and clubs, and our tour desk will happily curate restaurant, bar, beach, and sightseeing recommendations for you. But there are also plenty of ways of enjoy yourself at the hotel itself — from the Broken Shaker, an award-winning specialty cocktail bar with an eclectic menu that utilizes spices and fresh-pressed produce, to 27, a market-driven, globally inspired restaurant serving shrimp dumplings with chile oil, and lamb ribs slicked with tangy pomegranate molasses. Programmed events are also offered in our tropical backyard terrace. Free WiFi is available property wide.

The property is 3 minutes’ drive from the Miami Beach Convention Center and 5 minutes’ drive from Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Lincoln Road Mall is 2 miles away.

This hotel is also rated as the best value in Miami Beach — it’s a budget-conscious option that doesn’t require sacrificing on comfort.

Freehand Miami is a modern hostel with awesome extras – come take a dip in our outdoor pool, or sip on a cold drink from our cocktail bar. With our designer décor, including bespoke art by Miami-based creatives, we have a cutting-edge vibe. Spend your mornings filling up on free breakfast, afternoons under the courtyard's trees scattered with fairy lights, and nights dining in our restaurant, which uses veggies grown in our own garden. Our multilingual staff will get you up to speed on all our activities, including the pop-up events and shops.


We're a 5-minute stroll from the beach and a 30 to 45-minute ride on bus 150 from Miami International Airport. It'll take you from the airport station to the corner of 27th Street and Indian Creek Drive: a block from the hostel. To check out the old-school Art Deco district, you can walk for half an hour along the boardwalk. We also have a weekly shuttle to Little Havana so you can try some authentic Cuban food in this vibrant multicultural neighbourhood.

Rooms and Dorms

Whether you want a private room or a shared dorm, we've got accommodation to suit. You'll have towels and bedding for free, plus a locker for your bags. Dorms are mixed or female-only, and they all have en-suites so you can roll out of bed and into the shower. Reading lamps come with every bunk, so you won't need to fumble around in the dark when the main light's off.

Extras and activities

Pour yourself a free iced coffee in the lobby or make a meal in the kitchen, then sit down to use the free Wi-Fi in one of our common areas to plan your day in Miami. Outside, you'll find ping-pong tables for practising your swing while enjoying the Florida sunshine (just head inside to cool off in the air con if it gets too hot). In the morning, you can greet the dawn at our sunrise yoga class.

    Freehand Miami was great value and in a really good location. There are trolley busses that run from 6am until midnight and a stop right across the street so getting around is super easy. The broken shaker is fantastic with a lovely atmosphere and restaurant 27 is a lovely bar and restaurant with beautiful design. Would highly recommend if you want to stay in Miami Beach and not pay the crazy hotel prices!

    My visit to Freehand Miami Beach was a quick one, my daughter and I came in late Sunday night and left first thing Monday morning, didn’t stay for breakfast but did take a quick look around the patio and that was very charming, which I had more time, freehand is in a great location and just a short walk to the beach, if you are not into the beach hostel does have a swimming pool, all in all what i saw I would defiantly recommend freehand Miami Beach 😍

    This was a great hostel to stay in for my week in Miami. A couple of notes - it's about a 25 minute walk to Lincoln Road/Ocean Drive area and there are free trolleys that run up and down Collins. My room was clean, people were kind and friendly, and I appreciated that the lockers were big enough to fit my backpack (and in an alcove that could have a light on without totally disturbing everyone). Only change: when I checked in no one told me about the amenities and I'm sure I missed helpful info!

    A great Hostel! I think I could have stayed an extra night and staff would not have known about it! All in all, everyone was friendly, met cool people, great location away but not too far away from the party scene (15 minute walk), in the same building as a cool bar. Beds and showers were fine. A solid 8/10 would definitely stay again.

    The female gender room needed more hangers and places to store items. The walls needed more racks on each side of the bed for every guest in the room. The bathroom also needed more racks to hang towels and more racks to place toiletries and other items women use. The trash should also be taken out on the weekends as well as on the weekdays. Women need their trash taken out every day if possible due to hygienic and sanitary factors.

    I want to believe that by mistake they took my things from the room believing that I had left the room. When I arrived at the room and realized that my things weren’t there, I went down a reception where they did not say anything about them.

    The hostel cancelled our reservation with no notice and we never received a refund. We flew across the country and arrived at 8pm. When we pulled up with our luggage, the hotel told us they had cancelled the reservation and we had nowhere to stay. I also complained to website and have not heard back.
