I always stay in Tropics hotel when in Miami.. have been there 5 or 6 times already.
The hotel are in a really good location in South Beach; walking distance to Lincoln Road and Española Way. Buses to downtown Miami or Aventura Mall / north Miami Beach easily accessible as well.
As I said, you have what you paid for, which means, don't expect too much for the 60 bucks / night or so you paid for the private room (I've never stayed in the shared rooms - hostel - so I can't give an opinion about that).
The single room is actually big and nice. Comfortable bed, flat TV, closet with safe, small bathroom. The only bad thing in the room is the wood window blind (doesn't really protect from the outside lights - which is really bothering if you are in rooms facing the street).
Hotel cleanliness is poor, mainly due to the young "partygoers" guests who don't really care about it. Those guests are also responsible for the main problem of the hotel: Noise. I don't really care about it, but if you do, I'd look for a more expensive place to stay.
