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, a seasonal restaurant, and breakfast served daily. 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.

Overview

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.

Location

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.

    I came all the way from Sydney Australia & this hostel is very nice, cocktails & drinks a very expensive, being a backpackers you’d think they’d have happy hour or cheap drinks or cheaper meals, but having good size beds, aircon & very clean with good sized lockers, bus stop across the street & subway & supermarket around the corner is great. I’m definitely coming back here 👍

    I had a great stay at this hostel. The room was a bit messy when i arrived but i think it’s because I had an early check in. They hostel is only only block away from the beach, a supermarket, and a Starbucks. It’s a good 25/30 min walk to South Beach (12th street) which isn’t bad since there’s an incredible view!

    Really nice atmosphere, the bar and the pool are great places to meet new people. Only thing is that the hostel uses a lot (!!!) of single-use plastic. I think it’s very unnecessary and something they will have to change in the near future.

    It was a super fun place to stay. Really enjoyed the Saturday morning yoga and drinks by the pool. It is very close to the beach and a quick Uber to South Beach if you want to party hard. Only downside is the bathroom. No hand soap in the bathroom and they didn't clean the shower curtain or shower walls in the cleaning process, which meant that there were stains on the shower curtain my entire stay and mysterious hair on the walls. Definitely a bit run down, but hey, you can't beat the location.

    Pros: The beds were clean and relatively comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. And there is a nice, hip Bohemian atmosphere in the common area. Neutral: There is free breakfast, but nothing fancy. Bananas, oranges, oatmeal, cereal, etc. Cons: THE SMELL. It smells very strongly of mildew! The bathrooms were a bit grimy, and the lighting is pretty dark and depressing. And note that the lockers in the room do not fit a suitcase. Overall, my partner and I would not go back..
