Great hostel, with great people. Every night they have an event, so you get to know a lot of people in the hostel. It is about an hour walk towards Santa Monica pier, but it is a nice walk. There also busses nearby. At night they say it is not that safe, so you shouldn't be walking by yourself. They have a wonderfull security system and don't let anyone in they don't trust. Good kitchen, but also nice restaurants nearby. Breakfast was allright. One day they ran out of bread...


Pretty good hostel overall. Easy to get to, fun activities at night and pretty good atmosphere. Mindful that 1.5 hours by bus from Hollywood. Staff are all pretty cool and laid back except one American chick at reception who was a bit rude (Abby I think). Otherwise great stay, highly recommended.

Thank you for the feedback. LA is quite large and takes a while to commute between places. We recommend HostelHoppper - they offer a shuttle to and from Venice and Hollywood for $15 roundtrip. Cheers and safe travels. -Sara, General Manager


Have been traveling around America for a while now and this is by far the best hostel we stayed at. Staff were excellent especially Kate who was always willing to help and organize social events. If you're traveling to LA do yourself a favor and stay here! Highly recommend! Marco polo
