Birthday Getaway

Pros: I loved the views from my room (I had a room to myself) so I had the window up all the time to see the ocean and get the ocean breeze in at night.
Cons: They should mention to have your passport available to check-in. At least I had a ton of identification and my incoming/outgoing flight details
Location: AMAZING location, right on the beach and next to EVERYTHING!! Never left the area....no need to!
Came in late and checked-in (had my own room & ocean view) and went straight to sleep. The next day woke up to breakfast (oatmeal, pancakes, boiled eggs, toast, coffee/tea, and OJ) which you prepare and clean up after yourself. It was filling enough to not have to purchase breakfast and enjoy the rest of your, but if you are looking for bacon, eggs, and etc. I suggest to go to the close spots around. It is just steps from the beach and everything you want to be apart of on Venice Beach. I came to write papers and get away from rain in Seattle for my birthday and I could not have asked for a better experience!

Worth it!

You can't go wrong with this hostel, especially for the price. The location is excellent being right in the heart of venice beach. You are also not far from santa monica and other cool places. You get to meet many people from all over the world that stay there. Staff was excellent, friendly and very helpful. There is this guy that works there who goes by the name of "kooba" be sure to ask for him, he will gove you all the info you need and is very helpful.
