12 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great initiative was shown from the staff, who were friendly and helpful, especially with internet log-in and transport issues. Due to transport issues, I checked in reaaally late and the receptionist was nice enough/showed great initiative to give me a free upgrade (female dorm with ensuite this time) cos there was a spare bed. The corridors were a bit bare but the room was really clean and orderly. Right on the footsteps of Venice Beach, cafes, Subway and public transport. Highly recommended.

Liked: Great location right on Ocean Walk, Venice Beach. We had a view of the Pacific from our window! There's a good pub downstairs and other cafes nearby. One problem is that smoking is allowed in the lounge so we had to eat in the kitchen.

04 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This place was excellent, the staff were SO friendly and really helpful. We got upgraded from a dorm to a private room with a view for free, without even asking. It's also right next to Venice Beach (literally) which is perfect if you want to be near the beach, but it's far from hollywood if that's what you're after (it's still easily accessible by public transport).The place is a bit run down, but the rooms/bathrooms are still really clean and well maintained. Highly recommend staying here!
