The location of the hostel is amazing, near from the beach, the pier of santa monica and the 3rd Street Promenade!!
The staff of the hostel is nice! The structure it's great, everything is full of color and fun! I stayed in a privative room for 3 people and was just great, we used the ladies bathroom in that floor, and it was clean and smelt good all the times!
For me the there was just one bad thing about this hostel: no elevator! I stayed there February, 2011, after visiting Las Vegas and San Francisco with my mom and sister so we had a lot of luggage and the room was in the 3rd or 4th floor! Thankfully the hostel always has some big, strong and nice men disposed to help!
