Hostelworld says

If you're staying in Los Angeles, you want to be where the beautiful people are - and that's by the beach. It's quick and easy to find from LAX airport and only a block from the golden Santa Monica sands, so you can start to sun yourself instantly amongst the impossibly perfect and tanned Californians. There are plenty of activities organised at the hostel itself, along with being close to the famed bar crawl routes. The hostel desk can also help your with tours of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and other attractions like Universal Studios.

Property Description

HI Los Angeles Santa Monica hostel is located just west of LA, less than ten miles from LAX airport, in a trendy, upscale neighborhood. Set close to cafes, restaurants, and shopping, the hostel is just two blocks from the beach and is within easy walking distance of the famous Santa Monica Pier. This is a convenient connection to any part of the city; jump on a bus and you can visit the world famous Hollywood area and walk among the stars.

This is the largest purpose-built hostel in the United States, with capacity for 273 travelers—and we’ve got the comfy common spaces, authentic outings, and ideal location to help you meet them all! In-hostel amenities include free Wi-Fi, a fully stocked guest kitchen, laundry facilities, complimentary breakfast, and everything else you need to relax and enjoy the laid-back California lifestyle with new friends.

The hostel offers frequent tours that let you explore local food, landscapes, and culture with your fellow travelers. Excursions to Disneyland, Hollywood, and all of the area’s other top attractions depart from just outside the hostel’s front door, with discounted rates for HI Los Angeles - Santa Monica guests.

Along with all the ways to keep yourself entertained around the area, the hostel also offers a slate of organized outings to help you get to know the city like a local -- without breaking the bank. From infamous pub crawls, to comedy nights, pasta dinners, and trips to the Getty Museum and Dodgers games, we'll help you explore the best of the city with friends you haven't met yet.

HI Los Angeles - Santa Monica says

I think that what Hostelworld guests like most about our property is our cool location, just a block from Santa Monica beach and pier and a block from shopping and great restaurants at the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Mall. The Getty Museum is just a bus ride away. Personally, I recommend that our guests visit Jinky's next door for an awesome breakfast.
For fun we have a lot of activities going on, like BBQs, pasta nights, comedy, salsa, poker nights and more. I really think we have the best of both worlds here - if you want to socialise you can join our group activities, and if you want to chill out on your own you can relax in our casual, modern, warm common areas.
Most of our guests are aged 18 to 25 and we have facilities for people with special needs or disabilities.

Latest Review

" Hard to find any fault with this hostel. Great location in Santa Monica, close to metro station to downtown LA (downtown is about 45 minutes by metro). Lots of great common areas to relax. The top level already has bathrooms renovated, and the noise only occurred from 9am, by which time we were heading out anyway. Breakfast is great! "
