First Hostel Experience

Being the first time using a hostel I was not totally sure what to expect but I was open to the experience. I chose a 4 bunk room in a womens dorm. I was assigned a top bunk which was fine . The room was clean. I was the only constant boarder during my stay. Bed 1&2 rotated a number of times. Not quite sure how they assign beds as the lower bunk #3 was never used. There were a number of activities during the weekend scheduled either at the pool or in the lounge. The food was really good. Over all it was a great experience at a great price and I would do it again.

Freehand Miami

Set in an old building away from the lively South Beach, the freehand is first a bar popular on certain days, then a restaurant, and finally a mediocre hostel that pays little attention to the condition of its facilities or comfort of its guests. The young frontdesk staff are motivated for sales, but show no trace of training or experience in hospitality industry. Keep your expectations low, and the freehand should do the job.
