The location is just perfect, close to everything Santa Monica has to offer. Although th staff wasnt that friendly, we had some issues with our room, the offered a free upgrade which whas grat, but we had to check in and check out twice, wich was pretty anoying, and the staff wasnt very helpfull. Breakfast was just great.

I like staying in hostels when traveling alone. It is cheaper, you can use the kitchen, there is a basic breakfast and you might meet people. The Santa Monica Hostel has a TV room with very comfortable lounge chairs, a community room with fireplace, an internet room with a couple of computers hooked up to printers. Two blocks from the Santa Monica pier and close to the metro, the location is ideal for an LA visit, a stroll on the beach, many seafood restaurants...

Room tip: I prefer semi private room with en suite toilet.

One night visit in Santa Monica was very good to stay in this hotel. Cheap and clean. Good breakfast, juice, toast, cereal, coffee, etc. I loved
The dorm is okay, exactly what I was expecting for a hostel. I only suggest to change the paper towel for something with less noise. Sugiro trocar o porta papel toalhas para algo menos barulhento. Impossível dormir com esse barulho

The place itself was nice and in a great location, super close to the beach and the pier. Supermarket was about 10 min walk away with lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The beds were comfy and showers were nice along with being provided a towel and sometimes a bath mat. Found one the receptionists a bit rude. The kitchen was large and dining area was nice and bug too.

Close walking distance to the beach, helpful staff, clean room and good facilities. I stayed in a private room (with shared facilities) during my visit and found the whole experience very pleasant. If you are looking for the privacy of a room to yourself and don't have the budget to pay for the Santa Monica location with the hotels in the area - this hostel is perfect.
