The location of this hostel is great, right by Venice beach. The hostel is not so great. Firstly we had to drag our cases up a few flights of stairs that they didn't tell us about. The room had seen better days, the sink was rusty, the walls marked and dirty and the carpet was sticky.
Although we knew this place was a hostel and we expected young backpacker types, we didn't expect to be kept awake all night by our neighbours shouting and arguing.
The shared bathroom was dirty and didn't have toilet paper on a few occasions. The kitchen was sub-standard and it took an hour to boil a pot of water.
There are a lot of homeless people around the Venice beach area, so people didn't seem to venture out at night. There weren't many bars around to have a drink at.
The best thing about the hostel was the restaurant next to it. "Danny's" serves great food and has good service, excellent!
