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...

A really great place to stay. 5 min walk to the beach. the staff are very happy to help and very casual. you never hesitate to approach them because you know they will be happy to help. the breakfast for such a place is wonderful. just some spots in the hotel need a little more attention.

Very nice pool area. Good price. Some of the housekeepers don't speak English. We had a little trouble with the check in but everything went well after that. The people on the front desk are friendly and helpful.

We stayed as a group in the freehand for 3 nights from the 4th to 7th September. Firstly, the positives: Surroundings are really nice with a good pool scene. The restaurant and bar area are also very well put together. The continental breakfast is nice touch, although, it needed replenished more often in the 2 hour window, ran out of...

Trendy hostel, made lots of friends here and had a fab time. Room faced the pool which was so loud every night as the area is an outdoor bar at night. Prices are expensive for travellers on a budget. Two blocks from the beach but quite far from any restaurants, nightclubs and bars.

Stayed here for 3 nights Having spent a lot of time in hostels in Europe and south east Asia, I know a good hostel when I see one. Freehand was alright but not great.
