If you're coming to Miami Beach and are on a budget you are going to love this place! You'll meet beautiful down-to-earth people from all over the World. The Award-winning Broken Shaker Bar and Restaurant is one of the best local secret hot spots. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. You can get a private room for less than $150 or...

This was a really nice place. The beach is literally 5 minutes away and it was gorgeous! There is a cafe down 27th street and Collins with amazing Spanish food (Tostones!!) and its great to catch the bus to south beach or even walk down. The only cons were the cleaning and pool. The room (4 person) smelled like mildew...

I've stayed at the Freehand two times now. And both times the staff has been great, the room too. But the best part is the vibe here. The Arc Deco, vintage feel. The pool, the bar, the decor. Everything just creates a priceless atmosphere. And both of my times here, I've made good friends I still stay in touch with....

When traveling to Miami I had my hopes set on staying at the Freehand. I had stayed at their location in Chicago and loved the concept. However, once I checked in I realized the Miami location was not up to par. The front desk was not very helpful, the room was very small, unkempt and the a/c did not function...

I stayed here for a bachelorette party. The accommodations and format worked well for us! We loved being able to hang out at the freehand and have brunch options available to us in the hotel complex. My only complaint was that they ran out of beach towels when we all wanted to go to the beach! And taking your ID...

Definitely a new hipster hangout place. I loves the whole concept. The cocktail bar is unbelievable. The food was super tasty, I love the crudo and the Guave Tres leches was out of this world. Cant wait to go back!

I was supposed to stay half of my vacation in this hostel and the other half in a fancy hotel at the beach. The night before I had to move out I changed my plans. This hostel is great, single room is no worse than any hotel. Clean, good service and amazing atmosphere. Love it!

I like the Freehand as it is close to the beach and the SoBe action. I would have given Freehand more stars but there were three negative issues that diminished Freehand's rating. (1) When checking in, Freehand messed up the reservation, giving us a room shared with 4 other people when we specifically chose a (2-person) non-shared room. Despite providing...

“The King room facing Indian Creek Blvd was rather dumpy.”
