Hi Guys

Am looking for a recommendation on a hostel to stay in (or even a City/place) when in Florida. I will only be there for a week so want to make sure I stay in as Central a place as possible in order to visit the best things....Disney World etc!!!

Any other info on Florida would be fab (main attractions etc) I have done many a websearch but think I am suffering from information overload and would love to hear what someone whos been there thinks!!!
Thanks
Claire

ps Also is Miami worth it?!

Hi Claire,

Haven't been to Florida yet but remember a post by rebmamber back in this thread:

Made me think more of Florida than just Disney World.

A friend of mine lived in Miami for nearly a year and is always talking about it and wanting to go back. I would say it is worth it if I take his word for it. Any reason you wouldn't go there?? It is supposedly a very nice cities as far as they go...

I know its a little late but you didn't say when you were going to Florida. I just stayed in a awesome Hostel. Its called Palm Lakefront Resort and Hostel and its on a bus route to Disneyworld, only 5 miles away or so. Its actually the only hostel in the area and it used to be an HI but it changed management. They just lowered their prices for dormrooms too and when I was there they were still doing grand opening type promotions. The beds are only 14 dollars a night. They also have a pool! I don't think they have a website yet but I think they are getting one, so you could probably find it in a search engine.
Cheers.
