Liked: This hostel was awesome. This is the second time I have stayed here. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the location is PERFECT!! Breakfast is not so great though, and there are no safe lockers available in the rooms. Apart from that the location and atmosphere in the hostel is amazing. I met so many people from all over the world.

Liked: Location was fab for the beach, not so good for west hollywood where we spent a lot of our time, parking was easy to find and cheap, nightlife around hostel was very lively, great atmosphere, lots of places to eat could see beach from hostel window. kitchen facilities, staff were very friendly and always willing to help. public transportation seemed fairly easy from location (although we never used it ourselves), links by bus to metro etc.

Customer review

12 September 2009

Liked: This hostel was right on the beach if you're interested in beaching it in LA. Its also close to a mall and afew bus routes. There was a serious overbooking problem here however, with many backpackers sleeping on the diningroom floor or having to share beds. I was placed in the staff room and there was no place for my bag to go so it was proped against a wall! The internet doesnt always work and costs you about $2 for 10minutes & the machine eats your money.
