the staff and the location were beyond excellent.
Breakfast was so bland. Terrible wifi service.
Staffs are nice. Location is great, just one block away from the ocean.
They didn't change the sheet from last customer. It was awfully dirty.
I really liked this hostel.It's the best hostel in US in my opinion. They have a great breakfast, the best that I've had in a hotel around here. They also have tours in group, and they cook at night for a low price and for people to get to know each other. It's amazing. The location is perfect! Only one block to the beach, and one black to the 3rd street, which is an awesome street around there. Also, the hostel is very close to the Pier. I strongly recommend this hostel!
I hated the wifi internet, it was terrible! And the female bathroom was a messy, they had to take care about the cleaness.
Lots of space to meet people
Didn't have as many group outings as other hostels
Breakfast was Great Dorm room had power points for every bed TV room Easy distance to beach and shops
Bathrooms not clean - showers yuck and with hair everywhere, toilets dirty
The hostel was great, great customer service, clean and the beds were comfy and had lovely fluffy pillows! It's also in the perfect location, just around the corner from the beach and pier.
Location! Very clean.
The mattress was Quite worn in the middle, which was unexpected for an HI hostel. Not quite enough room for all of the women in the bathroom. Shower Water doesn't get very hot.
Location, multiple communal areas
The location is very close to the beach and the 3rd street. And it's convenient to take bus.
wifi is so slow. and one of my roommates cleaned up his stuffs at 4am...
Great public areas to meet people or just hang out, high security, great location, friendly staff and lots of activitie
The Location was amazing, a 2sec walk to the beach, Lots of cafe restaurants around to eat at Great outdoor area to relax on The people who worked there were nice and helped out when you asked
They don't take you around when you arrive, just let you know what levels things are on, thats about it!!
Wi-fi is good!
clean and well equiped, 2 blocks to beach, staffs are warm, Great location in santa monica, safe and convient to public transportation.
less public space, breakfast is just so so.
i felt really fortunate to choose this hostel during my stay in santa monica. its proximity to the beautiful beach makes my whole trip a memorable experience. the room is big, clean with a private bathroom. the breakfast is generous and healthy. staff are helpful and friendly.
i dislike they impose 3% service charge for non-members. that makes my stay per night to USD50, for a six beds female room. but for the sake of the beautiful beaches, i can bear that.
Beach, buses, shopping
Sloppy breakfast (nothing hot), hard / small bed, shared bathrooms on each floor. But altogether not a bad experience at all. So glad I choose here to stay!
very good location just two blocks from the ocean. friendly staff and good breakfast.. bit expensive but you re in Santa Monica..
The only minor thing were the cold showers.
the location, the price.
no hot water for shower at the evenings, too noisy from other guests after midnights in the hallway, the staffs gave wrong directions on bus.
Not a thing
wi fi was poor.
Best location in the best city around LA. Cheap car park opposite. Easily accessible to freeways etc to get to Venice, Hollywood, Disney, Laguna.. Great bars and restaurants. Right next to pier, beach and Third Street Promenade. Love!
Staff could have been slightly more accommodating but they were pretty good overall.
I enjoyed everything was offered at the breakfast, but they could vary the menu.
They served the same stuff all time. They could offer fruit and different kinds of juice/bread.
- Rooms were cleaned daily - Very spacious hostel in a multi-level building - A couple blocks from the Santa Monica Promenade and Pier - Hostel hosts fun events each night that allows you to get to know other guests and locals - Multiple lounges for guests to watch tv, read or just hang out. - Outdoor seating area in the center of the hostel
- Only parking are garages around the hostel. The one across the street from the hostel is $14/day and the one three blocks away at the civic center is $5/day
Location good. Rooms good size. Kitchen kept clean.
Toilet & shower not clean enough and shower pressure bad. Mattress dipped on middle. Plates washed by users it always cleaned properly.
Quiet place, central, fantastic stuff, big kitchen and many rooms to chill apart dormitories, comedy nights and events organised every week
Breakfast ok but the cheese was questionable I would suggest to chance for something recognisable
