Excellent location and the staff are great. Especially that girl from New Zealand who's name escapes me! The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the approximate 30% extra I was required to pay which I was told is City tax. Surely this could be made clear from the start. So I payed More

I was given a sheet with a big yellow stain in the middle and although the staff member changed it he did so with a sour look on his face, as if it were my fault. The rest of the staff are all very rude and disinterested, save for a couple. One bathroom per 8 bed is very limited. The tours More

Great hostel right on Hermosa beach. Only a 30 minute bus ride from LAX airport. Rented a bike and cycled 20km along a safe bike trail along the coast to Venice beach and Santa Monica. Very far from downtown Hollywood and other tourist attractions. Staff were helpful and friendly. Easy to More

NOTE: ALCOHOL FREE HOSTEL!! Pretty much says it's all. If your looking for a fun time to social and meet others, don't stay here. If you would like a quiet place to stay then it's perfect. Great faculties, breakfast and beds. But if your up for a fun time, look elsewhere, no alcohol and More

Its right on the beach, walking distance from the pier and endless shopping and restaurants. Pub crawl was fun and all the tours stop at the hostel. The rooms with en-suite bathrooms were spacious and clean. I do not suggest the VIP limo tour, unless you just want to pay $50 to ride there More

I heard there are worse places, I say there are better..! It's far from clean and everything is very run down. The people are cool but the security is close to non existent.. Shame, the location is great so with a bit more effort it could make a lovely place.. More
