Property Description

Surf City Hostel opened in 1996 in Hermosa Beach, California, and is located about 20 minutes drive south of LAX Airport in one of the best areas of Los Angeles.

The hostel provides shared room (dorm) and private room accommodation to travelers from all over the world.

Some of the things which make us popular with guests include our location on the beach, the fact that we are the safest hostel in Los Angeles, the bars, nightclubs, restaurants within walking distance, our proximity to public transportation, supermarkets, and cinemas, and much more. And the fact that there is so much to see and do every day! THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE HOSTEL CAN BE NOISY ON SOME DAYS OF THE WEEK SINCE WE ARE LOCATED ABOVE A BAR, PLEASE CONTACT US TO REQUEST A BED ON THE TOP FLOOR.

Access to our washing machine and tumble dryers and our fully equipped kitchen.

As well all that you will enjoy the beach and bars, our knowledgeable and friendly international staff are always here to help.

We provide free WiFi. Complimentary breakfast is not provided for the safety of our guests.

There is free street parking within walking distance of the hostel and there is metered parking next to us. Please read the parking signs to avoid fines.

    It's located literally steps away from the beach and right next to bars and restaurants, free breakfast, shampoo & soap in the showers are always a plus, the staff had all languages covered and they all were hot, fun, sexy and cool... big crush on all of it

    Hostel location is beautiful but it is impossibly loud- the whole bed shakes from the music downstairs and you cannot sleep. Only 2 bathrooms per floor and 3 showers in the whole hostel. Also £100 deposit in cash when you check in !!

    The position is perfect for access directly to Hermosa Beach, you step out of the hostel and are straight in its heart, with bars and restaurants right there. About 2 hours on public transport into downtown LA and Hollywood. The staff seemed to stick to themselves so meeting new people will be the ones located in your room/common area. The security isn't great as anyone can walk up into the hostel from the street but they do lock the doors after 12.

    Location was awesome but was fairly run down and staff was generally unfriendly and kinda rude, not a great place to go by your self, just about everyone stuck to them selves and weren't talkative

    This hostel is everything except a hostel. No security, no check in! You can come as you want! Can we talk about cleanness? No of course! There was hair in the shower, dirty foot prints, cockroaches and the assistant manager told us that for her it was clean! When I started taking pictures and videos to record everything, she told me that there was a lack of volunteers to clean the place but it was done superficially once a day in the morning and there was an intensive one once a week. LOL
