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
My window would not close - on 4th floor - and it was so noisy - I could hear people talking outside all night.
location, quiet, breakfast
activities are rarely visited, old washrooms, uncomfortable bed, booking.com prices+tax+service feas+ $3 per night if you are not HiMember,
I liked location and cleanliness. Staff is very friendly and loved colorful walls. Beds are very solid and you don't bother people with any noise and vibration when you move while sleeping.
4-Bedroom dorm was spacious, clean and really quiet compared to other hostels. The facilities and public areas are very modern and nice, especially the patio. The loaction is amazing, 5 min walk to the (wonderful) beaches and one block from the 3rd street promenade. Fun social activities.
Exploring LA is a bit of a hassle. There are some social activities Downtown, but if you want to party in Hollywood better book your accomodation there.
Very convenient to everything in Santa Monica, the beach is only few meters away as well as the shopping district. Big wardrobes for clothes & baggage, breakfast was ok too.
blocked toilet, shower wasn't hot
I did like the location.
Breakfast was great!
Location and staff
There was a noisy ventilation and garbage truck noise very early in the morning; it was difficult to sleep.
