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.

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and it was the best experience yet! I met a lot of new people and connected with new friends. The atmosphere was phenomenal. The staff was friendly and could always be found. Check in and check out we’re both smooth. I’d recommend this place 1,000 times!!!!

    This is a fabulous place to stay!!! Great location close to the beach, breakfast spots, and lots of great food. The beds are super comfortable and our room had a private bathroom. The courtyard is a great atmosphere. Cannot believe how great of a deal Freehand is! Also free bikes to ride, which were perfect so we could bike all the way to the end of south beach! Would definitely stay again, thank you! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    I only stayed one night but seemed like a decent enough hostel. Not too much in the way of security as staff was not really to be seen but cleaning ladies moving around and seemed to be a pretty chill place. Person I checked in with was helpful but I did not think checking your bags was too safe as they don't check who takes what out of the locked room but perhaps they never have any problems. It did make me feel uncomfortable to leave my expensive electronics in there but nothing happened.

    Very Good

    Room was great. I stayed in a 8 bed female dorm and all of my roommates were great. I made so many friends. Location is also pretty prime. Very close to the beach and 30 min walk to where the action is. Bus is currently free because of covid. Room has two bathrooms and lockers. There is no kitchen or any kitchen appliances anywhere, kinda hard to make your own food. I ended up eating out for all of my meals which is okay for a couple of days, but can get expensive. Microwave would have been good

    No kitchen to cook. No hangout area for guests. The bar in the hostel took over the hangout area, can only make reservations to get a table even if you are a guest. For all guests, only thing available to sit on out side are crappy 6 red chairs in the middle. The front desk never answer the phone when you call. They don’t have meet ups or guest activities that typical hostels would have, then again maybe it changed bc of covid.. worst hostel, would not recommend unfortunately. Left after 2 days

    Appropriate and respectful management and leadership lacked in the running at this facility. I spent more hours waiting in line and dealing with issues related to my stay then I did actually sitting by the pool side at this place. I’m not kidding, I literally set a timer on my watch and I accumulated about 5 hours of waiting/dealing with issues in my four night stay. The rooms were not clean at time of check in, nor was it cleaned throughout the stay. I personally took out garbages 4 times.

    Overprice hostel offers nothing. You can’t even drink at their yard if you don’t have reservations. Drink price are mind blowing. Rooms are small and smelly. Not worth it
