Liked: This place is a quirky spot. It's literally on Hermosa beach and yes, as other reviewers have noted, right on top of the local bars. If you are into quiet, this place isn't for you. It gets loud and really wild at times. I found the people there what gave it character. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. This is a surfer spot. If you are into surfing and want to meet other surfers, then check this place out. If you are into the beach and want to meet some characters, check it out. Breakfast was good enough. Cereal and pb+J. Nothing fancy. But it's super cheap. So worth it.

Disliked: The common areas were a little small, but for the price, it's to be expected. Right on the beach! Worth it!

Liked: On the beach. Tons of food and bars right down the stairs. Close to everything. As for hostels, I'd stay there anytime for cheap accommodation.

Disliked: Could just be a little cleaner. Maybe impossible to upkeep because its quite a large place.

Liked: beach, bars and burgers on the doorstep. Cheap bike rental (worth doing) cool staff. Traditional beach hostel.

Disliked: It's a party beach resort. Very Loud 7 days a week. No air-con. Above a bar which is loud 7 days a week. Just about bearable on a Sunday and Monday but with jet lag wasn't fun. Not being 21 isn't idealist but just sleep on the beach in the day!!!
