Liked: Venice Beach Cotel is in a great location, very clean. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. 2 minutes to the beach.

Disliked: Some of the staff were not that friendly but then others were very friendly and helpful, I guess it depends on whos on the desk.

Disliked: In der Küche war nur ein Topf zum Nudeln kochen und es gab nur zwei Herdplatten. Da musste man Früh kommen um sein Abendbrot zuzubereiten! (sonst lange Wartezeiten)

Liked: The hostel is in a great spot - with easy access to the beach and waterfront. The staff are amazingly helpful and friendly - they accommodated all our needs and answered any questions we had about the area. The building is secure with a permanantly locked front door and security cameras. The pillows are the most comfortable we have had all year. The sheets and bathrooms are very clean.

Disliked: No laundry facilities and the closest one is a taxi ride away.
