      There is a travel agent next to the hotel. It's easy to get a city trip or to go to universal studio with free transportation if you get the ticket there. Also, the hostel is very near a shopping area and easy to get around.

      My booking at this website was not shown at the staff's computer and they charged more than the price I booked when I checked in. However, they give me a refund when I talked to them about my advanced booking.

      The staff were able to check me into my room early, and there were no time restrictions for coming and going. The staff was very helpful. The location is great and the price absolutely cannot be beat.

      It is a hostel - i.e. shared dorm rooms - so don't expect much privacy. Lockers were available but locks were not issued with bed rental. You had to bring your own or buy one.

      Really close to the beach and alot of shops, bars and places to eat. I really enjoyed the evening events and the breakfast provided every morning. setting up a trip to Universial studios was super easy. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

      The bed was comfy. It was a cool atmosphere. Breakfast was good.

      The internet was absolutely appalling - it barely worked and when it did was incredibly slow. Two girls in my room were given the same bed assignment so there was a big mix-up about where people were. There weren't enough powerpoint sockets - eight people and four sockets. The showers were horrible - no door, just a shower curtain and it was difficult to get changed behind the shower curtain as there was nowhere to put your clothes without them getting wet.

      Only the location in santa monica.

      I got biten by bedbugs for two nights, that was really bad and that made my trip very uncomfortable !

      They organize something to do almost every day, and they have special offers to the trips in la. The location 5 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to Santa Monica Pier, and 2 minutes to the most important street in Santa Monica (by foot).

      One person of the staff. The rest is ok. If is cloudy, you don't have anything to do except shopping, and la is one hour in bus far.

      Clean, efficient, secure, friendly, convenient, inexpensive, international.... I used to travel around the world staying in hostels almost two decades ago throughout Europe. This was w/o doubt one of the best I've stayed at.

      There was nothing that I didn't like. The whole experience was excellent.
