Stayed there for a couple of days. The best part: the patio. There is a cool bar there, where you can hang while chugging a couple of cold beers. The decor is a little bit dated, but the hostel is nice and clean. The staff was really helpful! Location is very good, and the breakfast is a great deal.

A stylish & quirky stay is promised here. I couldn't recomend this place any more. Beautiful private room, ideal location, professional staff & everything you need right here. Small extras make all the difference, complimentary water, breakfast & private rooms come with fridge/freezer. The poolside bar is a must for all guests; just wear your insect repellant. Loved it!

If you are staying in Miami and are thinking about staying at the Freehand, think no more. It's brilliant. We stayed as a group of 6 and had own comfortable dorm which was perfect. But it would be great as a solo traveller, as a couple, or as a group. It doesn't feel like a traditional hostel, more of a...

The hostel is quite awesome. The 4 beds dorm is like a first class coach, bathroom, table, couch, beds with curtains, reading lights, plugs, shelves, even apads to separate you from the wall, and you can walk up and down the broad ladder without climbing. The whole facility is huge with several units, it has a big open space in...
