Liked: Super close the beach! Friendly staff and good place to meet travellers from all over!

Disliked: The plumbing obviously has some problems.The water in the shower always has a trickle, no matter how tightly the handle is turned, and the water takes a long time to drain. But as long as you don't mind standing in soapy water for a couple of minutes after your shower, no problems to be had!VERY loud at night, ear plugs recommended!

Liked: The Location is unbeatable! I could see the Ocean while taking a shower, right on the pier, if you want to surf and or party. It's far out from central LA but you can rent a car or take the bus (takes a while though). The staff is very helpful, there is a chilled vibe going on. I also liked the Hostel offer to rent a bike for 10 dollars a day and the also provide boogie boards and volleyballs.

Disliked: At night it can get very noisy because you are on the "party mile" but if you know this before just get some earplugs :)

Liked: The area around the hostel is really good.The beach is direct in front of the hostel and there are many pubs,bars,supermarkets etc. in the near. Also the area is very safe,even in the night.

Disliked: The rooms are really really narrow and the bed's are quite uncomfortable.If you want to go to cityparts like downtown los angeles,hollywood or beverly hills, you need nearly 2 hours by bus and metro.
