theantijock saidMight still be there, you can google, but there used to be a hostel on I think it was Espanola, west off Washington, just south of Lincoln. No idea as to its quality or costs, however.
who the fuck wants to stay at a hostel on their 21st birthday? This guy is going to want to be a slut and get fucked every which way from Sunday...
Anyhow, I've both lived there and visited there and stayed with hotels a hundred times. #1, if you want to pay less than $100 and have something decent with more options...go to mid-beach or north beach up til about 79th street. You don't want to be too far north though. Also, stay off of Ocean Drive! If you're driving...you don't want to have to deal with that. Make sure you factor that in cause staying at a hotel with a car in South Beach is going to cost $15-30 a night! Some even charge a $12-15 resort fee also.
I just looked at hotels in Miami, they are WAY more expensive even for this time of year than it was 3-6 years ago. They have remodeled alot of stuff and Miami Beach is no longer shabby dilapidated hotels like it was. If I were you, I would just cut thru the chase, go on Priceline.com or HotWire.com or Booking.com and pick out stuff from there unless you looking for something specific. It's like a travel agency to me. You know if the place has breakfast, free parking, near the beach, etc. and review ratings.
