The hostel itself is not a bad place. Nice building, great location and nice staff. But my bed was like sleeping on an old scaffolding tower. Couldn’t move a muscle without the thing sounding like it was going to fall apart and it creaked so...More
Clean, good location in Santa Monica. Did not have a car (which was a mistake of course), but the metro took me to Beverly Hills. DTLA and Malibu.
A lot less social hostel than HI New York, and less and not as good events.
I caught the Super Shuttle from LAX to Santa Monica for $15 from outside the terminals at LAX. Just follow the signs for shuttle transport, or you can download the app and easily book and pay for everything in advance through there.

Suggest you call them. I arrived in the morning and they let me store my luggage in a locked store room but I couldn't go to the room. I went shopping and returned a little earlier than the posted check-in time and they let me in because the room was ready early. If you're asking do they run late, I don't know. When I was there they were still remodeling various floor. It's a very well managed place.
