Liked: the owner is very friendly and helpfull. He draws guests a map of the area at check in and knows a lot of practical information, like busses to union station. The beds are comfortable and theres lockers, breakfast, allround wifi and a lot of room ffor hanging out. Safe neighbourhood, supermarket very close close by. Saw squirrels in the front yard, so bomus points!!

Disliked: Its a fifteen minute walk to the beach: doable, but obviously not right near the beach. A little hard to find the hostel the first time.

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff, breakfast included (cereals, milk, orange juice, toast, butter, jam), great atmosphere, just a 15min walk to the beach

Disliked: It´s a bit far away from the sights of L.A., like the Hollywood Blvd and the Universal Studios but there is a good bus/train-connection to those.

Liked: nice staff

Disliked: most of the place (smaller separate building smelled like smoke). everything is just so far for walking and this is an LA problem in general. i think compared to other hostels in LA this is decent though.
