Great Location and staff and fellow travelers
Ir was ok for a budget place didnt feel too safe in the hotel surroundings in the night...
The people at the lodge were really amazing. They were friendly and could answer a lot of questions. Dom is the events coordinator there at the hostel and he used to take everyone out for nightly events which allowed poeple to interact with each other. There were people from many different countries and it was interesting to share their perspective on things. The beachside views was fantastic. The music around reminds you of san Francisco in the 60's. They also have free breakfast in the morning, a separate room if you want to store huge luggage and a common room where people from different rooms can talk to each other during the day. At $35 per night, i think that its a good deal compared to the expensive hotels in LA The spring beds were really not that comfortable. I didn't get much sleep. Also there is just 1 shared bathroom for 8 rooms which could get cramped up somtimes. Add to that, those bathrooms get clogged often. I also had to struggle in getting the door open as the key would not fit in completely. The vending machine is out of order.
The free shuttle to LAX and champagne coupon. Ultra cheap dorm rate** free watered down coffee. Oh where to begin. The place is located in a undesirable part of town. It looks run down and seems to be more of a place that people stay long term vs a couple of days or so. They have cats everywhere, I literally counted 14 pussies roaming the property. Don't get me wrong I love cats, but I don't think it looks right at all. The dorms stunk and for a 20 bed dorm only to have one bath is totally unacceptable. And the staff could go through some customer service training. Really that's referred to the night crew as the day crew was ok with me. They have lockers for a reason, use it!!!
It was cheap I didn't feel safe walking around the area. Went back to the hostel 'restaurant' which served a virtually inedible burger. Parking is limited and not assigned. Typical hostel bathrooms. I wouldn't go back!
Not a single thing! You would sleep better at the airport! Too many people in a room. Bathroom was filthier than an NYC subway bathroom. No towels provided. The blankets made me feel like theyd been taken from a molested child and donated. Cerfew not enforced or observed. 50-60 year old men hitting on girls 18-25. Disgusting. Staff were no help with locating my room, rules, accomdations.
Horrible rude service. Shuttle two hours late when they kept telling us twenty minutes, asked by both driver and front desk attendant "you know there are taxis right?" Very unprofessional
Cheap,a pool if you're into it, a shuttle to the airport. A little sketch, not the cleanest. You get what you pay for though, fine for the money.
Drug dealers and prostitutes around pool area. Had a gun pulled on me outside in the daytime. Going out at night was clearly not an option.
Price Free shuttle to and from LAX One staff was rude (but the rest were nice) Other guests in dorm not quiet Took them about 55 min to pick me up 15 guys in bunk beds in double wide trailer with one toilet But hey it was 19.38 If you want better the. You'll pay at least 3x as much but if you want a place to sleep then it's unbeatable
Cheap housing, pool There are several things but like I said you get what you pay for
I booked a bed before I read the small print about no one over 30 can stay here. I realized this 2 days before I was scheduled to stay so I contacted management. I never heard anything back from them at all I landed in LA and drove to the address listed for the site and still couldn't find the place. Tried to call but again no contact with management at all. Address listed was in the heart of inglewood and a very shady area. The address given looked like an abandoned building and definitely nothing like the pictures that are posted. So after being unable to find the place and no contact from management,I got to sleep in the rental car for the night. When I got up the next morning I checked and was charged for the stay on my credit card. Love paying for nothing. The absolute worst part of my trip and I plan on disputing the charge on my credit card. Maybe I had the address wrong or it was listed incorrectly but some kind of communication from management would have been helpful.
Just the price The room with 20 beds was smelling bad, all dirty, bathroom disgusting.
Had a long layover at LAX and was just looking for a place to shower and take a nap. But even for just $40-45 a night, this place was so much more. It's right on the beach and in the heart of Hermosa, which for me was surprisingly similar to Manhattan Beach or even Santa Monica. If hostels are your thing and you're looking for really affordable beachside accommodation, there's no reason not to stay here.
