11 December 2009 robert would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were teriffc in helping with any needs. The price charged for the facilities offered are a bit high considering a backpacker can get a better deal such as breakfast included and a proper kitchen at some other backpackers close by.

Joshua Hindson

20 November 2009 Joshua would recommend this property

Liked: Unbeatable location - even tho its an hour bus ride to down town there is so much more happening on Venice Beach than down town itself and staff will organise tours to the big LA sights for you. We had a really dark dingy room with no sunlight although it was fine for sleeping - we got very cold during the nights. Although staff were generally very willing to help a couple were not particularly friendly. The place was kept very clean. I would definitely recommend to everyone - only one thing I would change - stop smoking in the communal lounge.

Disliked: Joshua left no negative feedback.
