Liked: Good location for visiting Venice Beach and handy for delicious fish tacos below at Danny's. Rooms nothing flash but comfortable beds and ours was a cool room with a sea breeze and a lovely view of the beach.

Liked: Location was excellent. Pretty much on the beach. Surrounding area was lively and safe.

Disliked: The room we stayed in was a private triple with no bathroom (room 304) and was one of the worst rooms I have stayed in in my life. (I have stayed in lots of hostels whilst travelling in Europe) The room was very small and smelt bad. The window was tiny and faced into another bedroom. The room was clean but because it was so rank and old fashioned it felt like we were constantly dirty. The shared bathrooms were ok though. We happened to see the private triple room with ensuite (room 305) which was really nice, large and clean with a massive window which had great views of Venice Beach. If we had stayed in this room I am sure our trip would have been more enjoyable. Value for money was quite bad considering we then went to Vegas and stayed in a 5* room for the same price! Also the receptionist did not warn us about parking on a red curb so we got a parking fine. Overall an excellent location and depending on the room either a BAD or alright stay.
