About Freehand Miami

Hip SoBe hostel close to the beach; free breakfast and WiFi

SoBe cool, European style
Freehand Miami is a luxury hotel and hostel reborn from an Art Deco classic, the former Indian Creek Hotel. For urban travelers, the beach is a 2-block walk, and Bass Museum of Art is half a mile north.

Bike the boardwalk
This budget-friendly hotel and hostel offers retro-style cruiser bikes for rent. If you plan to ride around the Art Deco District, you can head over to the Art Deco Welcome Center, 1.7 miles (2.7 kilometers) south, to pick up a map, and then keep going to enjoy scenic South Pointe Park, 2.7 miles (4.3 kilometers) south.

Free breakfast, hip style
Ping-Pong tables and an outdoor pool encourage a fun atmosphere, and the free continental breakfast includes fresh fruit. The 27 restaurant and Broken Shaker bar reinvent international tastes and classic cocktails with fresh herbs picked daily from the garden around the pool. Nightly hosted wine hour from 5-6 PM closes the day out as the sun sets.

Bunk alone or together
Shared and private guestrooms give you options; you can bunk with 4 or 8 others for an inexpensive night, or you can reserve a private room. Each of the 64 guestrooms offers city, garden, or pool views, plus modern perks like free WiFi and iPod docking stations.

Great pool area with happy hour. The restaurant and pool were always busy which placed some strain on staff.

Great Miami Beach Stay on a budget.
great spot if you're on a budget in Miami beach. Hostel dorms are fine, but what really set the place apart is the Broken Shaker, the pool area during the day and at night. Great buzz about the place and cool gar den and Art Déco design. Just by the beach and a lot quieter than South Beach..the food is rather good too!

An OK stay
Everything was alright except the bathroom was a disaster - water did not drain and toilet was clogged so very disappointing bathroom. The bed was top notch.

Great value and 5 minutes to beach!
This hostel/hotel is great value and a fab location for a beach holiday. There is also a mini supermarket and subway across the street for your convinience. The hotel has a nice trendy decor and a lively vibe. The pool is small but nice for a dip and their bar 'Broken Shaker' ensures an enjoyable atmosphere throughout the evening too. Only problem I had was that the air con leaked and smelled repetitively and they only attended to it once it had leaked over the floor. Also my room wasn't ready at 3pm check in. However overall a great stay, which I would do again! Also the beds are a great size in comparison to all other hostels I've been in/seen! Thumbs up to Freehand Miami!

Amazing hostel with pool
Loved my stay here. The hostel is nice, clean and 2 blocks from the beach. The pool area is amazing and there is a bar and expensive restaurant onsite. Albeit they are a tad expensive to go to every night as they attract people from outside the hostel. The only downside is that there isn't much really close by. There's a Subway and store one block over however you need to go further south of the island for bars and restaurants. I'd ask to get a room as far from the pool side as possible as at night the music and noise from the bar kept me awake at night
