Location of this hostel was very ideal. Minutes away from Santa Monica Pier and boardwalk and to shopping areas and several restaurants.. Located in a safe area. Never felt unsafe anywhere I walked around in the area. Travel agency attached to hostel to help plan any excursions and options for bike rentals. I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm. Nice and clean with bedding and a towel. Lockers were large enough to fit a backpack in. Showers were clean and plenty of bathrooms around. Simple breakfast of toast and cereal was offered in the morning and lots of information of what to do and discounts in the area. Would happily stay there again!
