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.

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.
