Friendly and helpful service from all staff e.g. receptionist and bar staff at The Broken Shaker. I stayed in a king size room as treat for finishing my month long trip away to America and Canada and what a spacious room it was. Very clean, beach/seaside themed room and had added amenities such as mini bar, toiletries and Freehand branded robes. The hostel is situated in a central location on south beach with a short walk to main streets such as Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road or the famous Art Deco District Ocean Drive is good 20 minutes or so away. Lots of attractions in the area to see/do. With only one day in the city I was limited on time so I took a Big Bus Hop on & off tour bus to see a bit more of the city. I used the Beach (blue) loop and City (red) loop and managed to see more of the city. I stopped off to see the Wynwood Art Walls as have an interest in art & design and also stopped off near Ocean Drive to check out those Art Deco buildings too. Overall a wonderful experience in a fascinating city that I would love to visit again sometime soon!

I hate writing reviews, b/c I'm everyone's highlighted all the features. Clean, amazingly fun, super cheap, best people, and pool. Two blocks from a quiet beach, short uber to SoBe. Probably the best hostel in America. I will be back.

Room Tip: Inside facing might be a little loud at night due to all the fun happening. But...that's also wh...

A dormitory-style room at the Freehand is a little more expensive than other hostels in Miami Beach, but this place is absolutely worth the price. This homey, eclectic hostel is located just outside South Beach's most congested areas and is a close, safe walk to the beach and nightlife.

I stayed in an eight-person dorm, and the L-shaped room was spacious. I never felt too cramped, even when the space was fully occupied. Our room also came with two full bathrooms, and each bed had a shelf along the wall, a bedside table, clothing hooks, and a personal lamp.

The complimentary breakfast was standard and was served out of the hostel kitchen, which was a little out of the way from the main hostel. To get to it, guests must walk through the gardens and the bar and pool areas, so the scenery made up for the trek. The hostel also offers a complimentary happy hour each day.

Room Tip: There was still some construction on Indian Creek when I was staying there, so rooms away from the s...

Freehand is the best. Perfect chill out spot where you can spend the day by the pool having drinks and hanging out. Great to meet interesting people. The Broken Shaker bar always has the best drinks. It's also just a block away from the beach.

The private room was simple but comfortable. It's not much, but for the price it's a good deal.
