"Not Bad, Cool Hostel"
Best *Hostel* I've stayed at in the US. Pros: comfortable bed, clean, lockers in room, bathroom(s) in room (2 in the larger dorm), free breakfast, nice employees, nice travelers, bar, restaurant, pool, great vibes Cons: the showers are old, the water stays hot and good pressure but you'll get really hot bursts; one shower in one of the rooms was clogged a bit, and the other shower in another room was full of old products that needed to be thrown out and because they weren't the shower was moldy. The housekeeping should throw away old stuff like the old bath products and old food/snaks that was sitting out in one of the rooms for days (maybe longer, there was a thick layer of dust on the cracker box). Made me sick to look at these issues, so I took care of it myself on the last day. Otherwise this hostel is great and I had a good stay meeting other euro and american travelers.

"Excellent affordable spot!! Definitely must stay!"
Only 1 block from the beach, clean rooms, very friendly staff and guests! Having the Broken Shaker in your backyard is very nice as well. Pool is clean and the surrounding area is comfortable.

"Wish I could give a better rating...."
This hostel is great for anyone who wants to be close enough to enjoy the nightlife of South Beach, but prefers to sleep in a quieter location. You have to be comfortable with the co-ed sleeping arrangements. The location appears to be clean, but I returned to the room to find a huge roach (this could possibly be due to the fact that guests are allowed to eat in the rooms - and there was definitely a nibbler in my room). Second, men like cooler temperatures and the men in my room liked "freezing" temperatures. My bunkmates were not courteous and entered and exited the room at all times of the night turning on lights and phones. Most of my experience was not the fault of the facility, but it did reflect on my stay. Breakfast was vey nice and the garden in the back was relaxing. The staff was courteous and friendly.

"Horrible customer service"
Room was 2.5 hours late. Check in was 3 pm our room wasn't ready until after 5:30. Staff was rude and didn't seem to care. If you're super young and into partying this is the place to stay.

"DON't Waste Money At The Bar"
Not bad for a hostel. Do NOT buy drinks at the bar! $14 for a simple drink? And it wasn't even good. They have the nerve to tell you gratuity is included in the price. I get to decide whether to lave a tip for a simple drink, not the bartender who gets the tip!

"Very cosy place, but noisy nights."
It was an interesting stay. Like going back into the backpacking-years. It was very charming, and the backyard was fantastic, and cosy. But it was a little to noisy at nighttime, having our kids with us. Not quiet before 3am! And the beds did not have a warm cover, only a simple blanket. But we used the AC as a heater and managed to stay warm during the night. It was well worth a visit, but maybe without the kids!

"Freehand is the way to go!"
Best hostel I've stayed in by far. The rooms/bathrooms were clean and the staff was amazing. The beds were also roomy and accommodating. This may sound weird but one employee in particular, she has a boys name and hey boyfriends nickname is Eve, was amazing! She had high spirits and customer service was the best! If you can find her, she'll make sure you have a smooth stay. Oh! Also the other guests aren't creepy like you find at other hostels.

"Great first time hostel experience!"
Loved staying at the Freehand Miami! The vibe was laid back and chill, people were friendly, the grounds-including the lobby and two bar areas, felt warm and inviting. The rooms were clean with fresh linens but fresh towels were not delivered one day. The room itself was comfortable and the bunk beds wide with places to set your things down and nooks and crannies in the room in which to put more of your things, if needed. Had the most wonderful ladies in my room which made this first time hostel goer relieved and happily surprised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Freehand Miami hostel to solo travelers or groups.

"Probably the coolest place to stay in South Beach"
This place is great - international crowd, great bar downstairs where all the locals hang out, world class cocktails, and good looking people night and day. The ping pong table is great. 10 minute walk to the beach. You really can't do better than the Freehand in South Beach.

"Nice hotel for the money"
The Freehand is both a hostel and hotel. We had a private room so we cannot comment on the shared facilities. The ambiance was fine for us, but one should be aware that the hotel caters to international backpackers more than typical hotel guests. Our room was large and comfortable with more amenities than we expected (robes for example). Housekeeping was spotty but acceptable. The courtyard was awesome as was the pool area. The odd thing was that while the courtyard was great during the day, at night it was converted to a sort of mid scale bar/nightclub with valet parking and lots of "reserved" spaces which did not seem to be really reserved but intended to imply exclusivity. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sometimes did not know much about the hotel. The breakfast provided by the "chef" was fine but minimal: coffee, juice, fruit (apples and bananas), little muffins and cereal. The location is great if you want to be centered between south and north beaches. A little far if you're mostly interested in South Beach action. Parking is problematic as it is in most Miami Beach areas. The hotel does not have its own lot. Finally, more than the usual number of guests tended to be somewhat behaviorally challenged.

The staff was very friendly and the hostel was only a 6 block walk from the 25¢ south beach bus. If you stay in a dorm then your roommate(s) are kind of up to luck though. Overall good experience and a cheap way to stay in Miami beach.

"Eclectic Paradise"
Met my sister there for a much needed get away. The Freehand was perfect for us 2 very liberal 50 yo gals. I think some of our foreign male roommates may have been a tad bit uncomfortable but it was easy to keep out of each other's way. The place was a hot spot for young and old to hang out. A welcome relief from many of the typical snooty wannabe hotels in the area.

"Great for a last-minute trip on a budget"
I went to Miami Beach at the last minute for my 50th birthday I thought I was perhaps going alone which is why I booked a shared room in a hostel to begin with but my sister ended up meeting me there and we loved the Freehand. The staff was amazing. Rooms were spacious. Beds were comfortable and roomy. Bathrooms were a little dirty. That was omly downfall. The other roomates were friendly but not intrusive. Freehand rents bikes but ran out quickly daily. The beach at 27th Street is divine.

I had agreat stay at the Freehand in Miami. I really liked, that it`s not directly in Southbeach and has more of an artsy feel. It was great to only share the bathroom with 2 other girls and everything worked perfectly.Nice pool and cool crowd!Parking is a little difficult, but that`s pretty much everywhere in Miami Beach a problem. I had drinks at the bar the night before and really enjoyed that, too! Great cocktails!!

"Great hostel that benefits from a perfect location"
I spent two weeks in this hostel, that is the annual limit for a stay. I was in an 8-Bed mixte dormitory room, that is huge and provides 2 bathrooms and lockers. The beds are very comfortable. The only negative point was the housekeeping, that wasn't really done seriously... The staff at the front desk was really nice and helpful.

I love the Freehand Miami. Its a beautiful place and 85% of the people are perfectly darling. The staff does everything they can to be helpful. I appreciate them. The major plumbing I've encountered on multiple occasions is the plumbing. The toilets in various rooms seem to have issues and maybe they need some form of upgrade. I understand, they go through a lot. They serve many people, but this is precisely why a plumber should come in and give them some sort of upgrade. You can't run a hotel without functioning toilets. Seriously.
