I'm supporting a small cafe which offers public wifi to it's guests, and they would like to limit their guests to 1 hour of access.  What is the most efficient way to set this up?

There is a really cool feature in Aerohive NG where you can set up a Guest SSID which will kick users off when they reach a time or data limit.  

It is a really handy way to encourage people in and get them using the  Internet without letting anyone abuse the system.  

Plus of course you can use the firewall in the Access Point to restrict them to genuine browsing/facebook etc, and rate limiting as well as a further "abuse preventer"

The settings are under the User Profile:

Forgive - my ignorance Terence but has this feature been available for sometime within NG? This looks like it could be effective.

Not sure how long this has been in NG, because I believe there was something  similar in HM Classic under ID Manager
