Great hostel/hotel concept. I stayed in the Quad Female dorm for 3 nights. Clean, easy, bathroom for only those in the room (I only had roommates 2 of the nights). Free breakfast each morning (coffee, oj, muffins, toast). Great pool with awesome jams. Evenings are BUSY with people enjoying mixology and chill vibe. Easy to get to from FLL or...

Pros: Price is great. Bar is nice. Pool area is nice unless smokers come and sit down next to you. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good - served until 10. Cons: It's not the hostel's fault but a lot of people smoke in the patio area so that can be uncomfortable. Also, I didn't realize you needed to bring...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The outside area is crazy charming : pool, garden, vegetable garden, lights, bar,... Good party on Friday nights. Simple and average free breakfast. Had a great weekend at Freehand!

I love the laid back, casual vibe of the hotel. I love the bar, I love the food and I love the people, but the rooms kinda suck- small, no mirrors and I can see the plumbing.... I would love to stay again but I will make sure to get one of the "better rooms"

Here's one of the best kept secret in the Miami scene: enter the hotel and go straight back to huge patio for drinks and bar food. Great bohemian surrounding with 70' music playing (Stones, Beatles, Bowie)....just a huge INHOUSE NG party!

Rooms were nice and practical. We were experting noise in the evenings and brought earplugs that we really needed since our room was right above the dj booth. annoying was that the music started really loud at the pool from 10AM. We ended up running off to the beach to relax in peace. Only for real partypeople

We loved the easy, breezy vibe of this hotel/hostel in Miami Beach. Classic S Florida interior design from Roman & Williams make this a chic and smart choice. Onsite Broken Shaker bar and restaurant are award-winning-- loved the daily punch specials that were perfect for poolside sipping. We opted for the quad accommodations (bunkbeds) which we found comfortable and spacious...

I flew into Miami Beach on a last minute business trip. Thus, I wanted to find something on a budget since I was going to be there only 4 days. When I arrived it was a Monday night, the lobby has an amazing vibe. Then you walk outside to the bar, restaurant, and pool. Wow! I couldn't believe it was...

No hot water, dark damp room, poor cleaning standard, several issues ... all met with total disdain by the staff members. Very basic complaints and requests were met with "I don't know", "It's just a hostel you know" and various kinds of shrugging. And however, here's the issue: it's not "just a hostel". Because no typical hostel, even during the...
