Liked: Location right on the beach, and lots of happening bars, restaurants, pubs next door/on the street. Seemed to be lots going on and lots of friendly travellers. Good place to meet people. We were warned about the noise from other reviews since the hostel is right above a pub, but I didn't think it was that bad. If you are a light sleeper maybe not the best spot but I really didn't notice it that much.

Disliked: Can take quite a while (1.5-2 hrs) to get to other areas of LA, eg Hollywood or Santa Monica/Venice beach on public transport. However the public transport is pretty cheap, the wait times are just quite long. Prices seemed quite expensive for what you get, but perhaps this is indicative of LA's hostel scene. Management is a bit haphazard, took a few different people to get us checked in properly and arrange cleaning of our room/bedding.
