No AC in the rooms
I loved the staff, rooms, breakfast better than many hostels, and the location.
The bathrooms specifically the showers could be cleaner. There was some mold and grim.
The quiet rooms, with the opportunity to get away from noisy music and loud voiced people. Personal lights over each bed. Good bathroom.
Could not see any air conditioning so do not know what it would be like in the swelter time.No hooks for hanging things despite lockers winch are useful but inconvenient to use.
Cooking my dinner with space and solid tables to eat it.
The hot water in the shover
I highly recommend it!
No air conditioner in the room! Only hot water in the showers made me melt everytime I had to take a shower.
The location is great, really close to Santa Monica Pier, the hostel structure is very good too.
Some people from front desk looks like don't like what they do and my first impression from the hostel wasn't good and indeed, some of them was the same way everyday. Another thing that I hated on the hostel was the hot water at the bathroom, it's too hot and is not possible to change to a could water and outside was hot too so imagine. Get ready cos there's no air conditioner in the bathroom [at least on 2nd floor that I was], I felt like in a hell in there. There's no protein on the breakfast, only carbos. I supposed to be there 5 days but I got only three cos these problems. If you wanna parties go to Hollywood, Santa Monia is goos to take advantage of teh day because the beach and you cannot drink at the hostel.
Clean, location, wifi
No hairdryer in 2nd floor bathrooms
I really liked this hostel, a great place to either be by yourself or to connect with other people. The location is great, it is close to the beach, shopping center and grocery store.
There is not a lot of variety when it cimes to the breakfast. But this is not a hotel so I guess it should be expected.
The hostel was so comfortable, it seems more like a hotel. You have a lot of options for breakfast and the rooms are amazing.
But maybe the hostel is just so big you don't really get to know so many people.
location, facilities, breakfast, convenient, safe, well managed
the women's bathroom needs cleaning more often, one shower (out of 4) was out of order(no tap!)
Excellent breakfast and kitchen.
The bed was too hard--poor matress.
Facilities, friendliness of staff and breakfast. Location excellent, has all you need for a comfortable stay
No free parking but facility across the road at reasonable rates. Need to book in early, as in a month or 2 before your stay to secure a room to you needs, eg we would have preferred a private family room but all full.
The living and kitchen area are pleasant and tidy. Probably need to invest in a hot water zip to have constant hot water to make hot drinks. The hot flask over time does not keep water hot.
The showers. It needs an upgrade. The hot water temperature in the shower is too hot that it burns. There is no way to adjust the hot water. Smaller rooms needs more than a fan. There is no ventilation. Too hot to sleep.
All in all I enjoyed my stay; there was much to do! Everyone was friendly when I asked for help. Everything was also really clean! Other than that I'd come back for future visits.
The only thing that I did not like was the increadably hot room u slept in.
My sister had a mixup at LAX. I booked from NZ on behalf of my sister staying in LA for 14hrs. I forgot about the time difference and booked a day ahead. They were so helpful and cancelled my booking and let my sister hire a locker for her gear for $5 for the day as she flew out that night. They were so helpful and my sister was grateful. She had an awesome day!
great location tour service nice living environment
Met some really cool girls staying in a dorm room here. The location was great, close to good nightlife and shopping and only a 20 minute drive from the airport
Great Spot, close to the beach, Shops, Restaurants and the Bus stop. Great Hostel, very clean, big locker, Keycards for the room, good showers, nice small breakfast with Toast, bagels, jam, creamcheese, cereals, milk, orange juice, coffe and pancakes. Big kitchen to cook for yourself. Big chill out areas outside and inside. Everything you need for a nice time in Santa Monica.
Bit expensive but worth it!
Perfect location, great common areas and reliable wifi.
NO A/C in the dorm...
Really central location in Santa Monica Good kitchen and breakfast in the mornings was quite decent.
There was no air conditioning in the hostel and my room was extremely hot. There was one fan but it didn't rotate so it didn't help at all.
this was my worst yhi hostel experience ever. room was too warm. the big fan didnt help much. it was soo loud that needed earplugs? way too expensive
It is very close to the beach and the shopping street.
Showers in the fourth floor were to hot.
