It was a good place to stay, very near to Santa Monica Pier. I like the armoires they have in room 301.
Breakfast is good, but not to ecological, lot of garbage because of the packages.
And I think you need a sigh for the elevator.
The room was renovated to be roomier with fewer beds, larger closet space, the addition of a table and chairs. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Unfortunately, during my stay, the new alarm system was being tested and was so loud, I had to leave the hostel during the day. Had I been advised of this while booking, i would have selected different dates.
The hostel is pretty good for price, anyways i don't recommend stay more than two nights cause u can get pretty sick of the same breakfast EVERY DAY.
