Lisa jaeschke thinks…

"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…"

Liked: This hostel is more or less right on the beach and in the middle of everything cool in Hermosa Beach (shops, restaurants, bars) - definitely a great place to stay and relax for a few days! The place was full of people all there for the same purpose - sunshine and a good time - so you won't regret staying here.

Disliked: Kitchen is fairly small, be prepared to fight for space and over the free breakfast.

Liked: Although a little far from the action of some parts of LA, the Surf City hostel has an awesome location for a few days at the beach and nights of partying. You have everything you need at this relaxed location away from the busy city. Some people really dislike LA, but if you stay at this hostel you'll definitely enjoy the yourself. Be sure to bike your way up the coast to the Santa Monica pier!

Liked: Thank you City Surf! I am a female travelling alone for a short while! I could not have asked for a better place to arrive. Staff were great, made you feel at home! Kitchen was brilliant with breaky too. LOCATION IS TOPS. If you ride to Venice beach it is 50km return...just in case you did not do your research like me. Though brilliant ride!

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.
