This hostel is in a perfect location, not even a one minute walk to the beach, there is a great selection of food just outside the doors & there is a great selection of activities to join in everyday. The premises is secure as you must show a key to the camera before being let in. At night I found... More

The location of this hostel is great, it is right on the beachfront at Venice and there are many nice restaurants nearby, and the santa monica pier is only a 30 minute cycle away. The bathrooms are clean, communal areas are nice and the wireless internet is strong, but the temperature in those bedrooms is inhumane. We stayed in a... More

So I've stayed here twice, and am booked in to stay a third time, so I think it's a great place. The first time I stayed, I had views of the beach and it was amazing. The second room didn't have beach views and was a bit hot and stuffy. The staff are friendly as and there's a basic breakfast... More

Staff really friendly and helpful, very good free breakfast of oats, toast, coffee etc. Room i had was 212 and really hot and uncomfortable but otherwise ok. Showers not the best, at least on first floor, better upstairs. Cool common... More

Absolutly amazing hostel! We started our travels here and it was the perfect place. We met lots of people and the staff were as much a part of our time there. They were so friendly and welcoming and were always involved and helpful. Greg was an absolute babe to share a room with and Chris took us out for pizza.... More

This hostel was amazing! My room was super clean, and had its own en suite bathroom. The location was incredible, I could see the beach from my window. I was especially grateful for the awesome staff. They were all really friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Jose. I was there alone and he made me feel really welcome, and... More

The location is perfect for daylight activities, right in front of Venice Beach, if you like the beach, surf, skate and alternative art, there is the place to stay. less than 20min bicicling to the Santa Monica pier and downtown. Unfortunately not much activity at night and public transportation is very weak, but there are a few bars where you... More

Myself and a group of 21 year old backpackers stayed here for 4 nights. We were initially greeted by a young and cheerful group at reception who instantly made us feel at home. The room was an average hostel room which we shared with 2 others who worked in the area but of similar age. The location was perfect -... More

I stayed in the double en suite, which is perfect for couples, the bed was probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. The location was fantastic, a stones throw from the beach. Cleanliness was good for hostel standards, breakfast was good. Only complaint was that there wasn't a can opener or bottle opener in the kitchen. I would... More

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed the hostel! For future reference and guests, we do have a can open in the kitchen - it is drilled to the side counter so it can't walk off or go missing! We will make sure a sign posted, so that it is better displayed. Cheers and safe travels. Sara, General Manager More
