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

19 March 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The owner (French lady) was extemely helpful and friendly. However, the guy working in the hostel in evening-/night-time was cocky and rude. Location is great if you either have a car or want to stay at Hermosa Beach only.Hostel felt very safe and the Hermosa Beach area generally was very pleasant. It was great to mingle with other travellers even though there are also people who live in the hostel permanently.

David Burns

01 July 2007 David would recommend this property

Liked: It's in a cool part of hermosa, right next to the beach with numerous clubs and restaurants right next door. However there were lots of thefts from this hostel. Security is awful, the back door is nearly always left wide open and numerous people had items stolen from them during their stay (including me). Everyone who works at the hostel is really cool, apart from the tall blonde german guy who everyone hates. He is the most miserable person I've met so far on my trip.
