Do not stay here if you are expecting anything other than a crummy hostel. I had been to the pool/restaurant many times previously which are great, so I figured the rooms would be a touch above a basic hostel. The rooms are dingy, there is no soap, hand towel or proper blanket. The sheets are ripped and a private room...

Had an amazing time, service and atmosphere is just impeccable and everyone is so awesome. The location is perfect, a short ride to the best of Miami Beach and close to Aventura Mall for a quick retail therapy. Can't wait to get back

A very busy place, special for young people (25-35), so it is important to reserve in advance. The garden tables are fine, if you like noise, the inside is the choice. The waiters, women and men, are very friendly, but sometimes a bit disorderly. What about the menu? falafels, shrimps with garlic, catch of the day in curry sauce: good...

We booked our stay at The Freehand Miami through our timeshare company. We had a two night stop over before joining a cruise. After reading some reviews my wife was somewhat worried when she read it was a hostel. Our booking said that we were staying in the guest rooms. When we arrived at the Freehand her fears were over....

I stayed at the Freehand with my girlfriend over this previous weekend for a staycation. We stayed for 3 days and, although the weather was bad (it was raining the entire time), we still managed to have a good time. We stayed in one of the private rooms that was comfortable and had a bohemian feel to it. The Broken...

I have been working with hostels for over ten years and can truly say that Freehand are driving a paradigm shift in this industry - particularly in the U.S. They are redefining what a hostel is and can do. Here, you have everything you could want in a hostel and it achieves the perfect mix of the social, the local,...

This is a nice hostel, and no doubt the best value and most comfortable you would find in Miami, but the constant cleaning around you while your trying to relax and enjoy the atmosphere can get really annoying.
