Santa Monica may not be in the centre of Los Angeles, but it's the beachfront heart of the city.

We're located just a short distance from LAX airport and this is a convenient connection to any part of the city. It's a very safe area with beautiful weather and friendly people. We're one block from the beach and you can walk to endless pubs, shops, restaurants and entertainment. Jump on a bus and you can visit the world famous Hollywood area and walk among the stars.

Along with all the ways to keep yourself entertained around the area, the hostel also offers many fun organized activities. From infamous pub crawls, comedy nights, pasta night, trips to the Getty Museum and Dodger games. We provide guided, inexpensive ways to enjoy the city.

And, if you just want to relax, then hang out in the hostel itself. We have comfortable common areas, a full kitchen, courtyard, free Wi-Fi and a TV room. There are plenty of spaces to meet other travellers and enjoy the laid back lifestyle that is Southern California. Here, you don't need to send a postcard back home, just send a picture!

Rate includes linens, towels and breakfast.

Guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
