Hostel is nice/ employees are friendly / location is horrible/ tool me 3 h to go there from union station


If you're looking for a busy party place that shouldn't be your first choice, but if you want to have a chilled and relaxed time this hostel is perfect! Guests and staff are very friendly, can't complain about my stay, really enjoyed it! Only, if you drive, you should get a car during your stay...

Nice and quiet and peaceful which is what I was looking for. I stayed here last year also. It was a welcome respite from the traffic and throngs of people in LA.


This hostel is in a lovely area, on a hill overlooking the Pacific. However, there are no local facilities so you will be entirely reliant on buses/cycles/car to get around. Everything was nice enough, but nothing special either. Clearly one for those that want some quiet time rather than a party as you won't find one here. Also, the wifi was intermittent during my stay and cod only be accessed in the main reception/kitchen and not in the seperate accommodation buildings; a major frustration!


A great hostel if you have a car (which is much more important for LA than any other big city). My window overlooked the Friendship Bell and the ocean! Quiet place to sleep, clean rooms and sheets, clean bathroom. Highly recommended.


This is a great hostel in a good location. Clean and quiet. Along way from Hollywood, Venice etc, so you need a car. There is a deli and cafe near by but a supermarket is several miles away
