Freehand Miami

Top choice hostel in North Beach
Image by

The Freehand is the brilliant reimagining of the old Indian Creek Hotel, a classic of the Miami Beach scene. Rooms are sunny and attractively designed, with local artwork and wooden details. The vintage-filled common areas are the reason to stay here though – especially the lovely pool area and backyard that transforms into one of the best bars in town.

Dorms serve the hostel crowd, while private rooms are quite appealing. There are also bungalows for self-catering groups.
