A very friendly staff with warm smiles will await you as you step through the doors of the Santa Monica Hostel. This is a great find for students. The price is right & you'll meet other young travelers from around the world. You will love the location. It's just 1 block from the beach & right in the middle of Downtown Santa Monica with shopping, bars & restaurants galore. The Santa Monica Pier is within walking distance & plenty of budget conscious restaurants as well. I like how this hostel has plenty of places to hide & get your solitude or to study. You have the option to share rooms or to book your own. There is also a travel agency right next door to help you book all your exciting LA excursions.

I my write about luxury travel but have been known to indulge in a little bit of hostel action, once in a great while. As hostels go, this one is probably the best I have seen in terms of cleanliness. The staff was great and I would not hesitate recommending this to budget travellers.

I love the Santa Monica hostel! It's one of the cleanest, friendliest and overall nicest hostels I've ever walked into. The location is central to everything in the Santa Monica area. It's walking distance to tons of bars, shopping (3rd St Promenade) and 2 blocks from the beach - amazing!!

Hostelling International is a beautiful hostel in the heart of Santa Monica! Located right next to the beach and 3rd Street Promenade, it is definitely the perfect location to stay at if you're visiting Santa Monica/West LA. The staff here is very friendly and interactive. They coordinate pub crawls and barbecues for hostelers, which is really amazing considering that it can be very difficult to navigate around LA and meet people. The courtyard of this hostel is definitely a very cool place. There are a lot of tables and chairs available in the courtyard. You can definitely take your laptop out here to do some work, listen to music, etc. if you don't want to be inside your room. Overall, this is truly a great hostel and I highly recommend it to any traveler who wants to have a good experience during their stay in Santa Monica.

Really charming place to stop by and stay the night. The people here are super sweet and so diverse that I could honestly learn new cultures by just talking to one of the guests. The ambience here is amazing. In this postcard you get just a glimpse of how the courtyard looks. The lights around the tree and christmas lights on the side of the roof really gave the place the charm and allure. Lying on the large blue lounge and looking up into the night made me feel as if life just slowed down and calmed. Seriously such a great lovely feelings. And what is great is the location. If you are looking for something to do, you have the beach on one side (walking distance to the sand and pier) and the many santa monica shops and eateries on the other.
