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.
