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…"

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.
