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

If you have a car, this location is ok! About 30min from LA downtown. We felt a bit like on a scouting camp because of the building! For european norms this is quite expensive and the wifi is not that good.

Great location, but needs a car.


i cancelled reservation; the abrupt female---i'm assuming didn't cancel---i called 72 hours after booking.


too remote from the city, but it's really a nice place to stay, staff are kind and facilities awesome, too.


Dont do it!


We really liked the experience there! The employers are amaizing and the hostel looks like aí hotel!!!! We recomend and be sure that we will be back soon!!!


One of the best views in Califorinia


This is a nice hostel and in a lovely location but you should not that it is 1 hour by bus minimum away from the city and any activities. Staff were very helpful here and Lighthouse Cafe served up very nice food.


Very far from LA but in a beautiful place! The staff is really helpful!


the bed was squeaky wrapped in plastic and not comfortable.


Hostel is about an hour or so bus ride from downtown L.A, but if you review the timetables properly you can plan around this. And the actual hostel looks out on Koran bell and has great views to. Ideal Hostel in my opinion, various travellers from various countries, all friendly, kitchen and fridge to use, free coffee, decent dorms, warm showers and 10 min wlk from a decent beach. Def would recommend this hostel. Thanks


If you plan on using public transportation while in LA...Dont stay at this hostel. I spent about 5-8 hours a day on The Metro systems... motto should be (You cant get there from here). The buses stop running to the hostel at 7:30 PM. On several occasions, I had to shell-out $6-8 dollars in cab fair to finish the bus route that Metro didnt. Staff is very aloof and Jonathan is rude to guests, talks very condescending to them.


not good if you're after downtown LA but excellent if you want some peace and quiet. great hostel!


nicer staff ever, but forget it if u dont have a car, thehostel is situated miles and miles away from everything (no shops, 1 bus per hour/2 hours and a half to go everyhere else...)


This was my first time in a hostel and I really enjoed it!


amazing place in a beautiful setting...the view was to die for, one disadvantage is the transport links into downtown and hollywood, but with a vehicle it is perfect for the best of both worlds in L.A. very clean staff friendly and helpful..highly recommended for people wanting sanctuary from the city


Awesome views and generally a good hostel. A bit far from everything but if you're looking to relax this one's perfect. Internet was broken whilst I was there though and its a 40 minute walk to the nearest hotspot.


I will definitely come back...I had an awesome time! THANK YOU!!!


Beautiful place to stay. Hard to find it. It is only 50 meters from the Korean bell in the same side of Gaffey street as the bell.
