they never notified me of the reservation change until the day i arrived there, which resulted in total disruption and inconvenience to my schedule as i was there for a conference. I also became ill, because i was not able to find accommodation i could afford anywhere the night i was left without accommodarion. Also, the continental breakfast was unhealthy and the dishes where not washed properly nor disinfected. The bathrooms were not cleaned and the sink was clogged. The recycled air and lack of healthy ventilation also contributed to my fallen ill.

Nice environment. Will definitely consider this place on future occasions.

This was my first wver hostel stay. I may have been spoiled. This place was clean and safe and in a great location. If you havent ever datyed in a hostel, please be aware parking was difficult and expensive. (30 each night across the street in public parking). Bathrooms were very crowded often, especially each morning. Shared rooms were 8 people to a room. There is no controlling others (haha)...all night in and out and in and out and up and down. The door is loud , thebstreet isnloud and there is no way to change the temperature in the room. The facility was clean and safe.

Good, but maybe not the experience for me. I felt like was in college and still sneaking around in the dark...

Only stayed for one night but it was great! Very clean.

Staff are very nice. Great wifi. Great amenities. Great location!! everything is one street away

Hello, Thank you for your comments and apologies if there seemed to be a change in your reservation. We only make changes that come through expedia and I am not sure what you are referring to in this instance but we do apologize for any issues you had. We do wash all of our dishes in a dishwasher, however sometimes other guests do their own dishes and this might be what you encountered in the kitchen area. When our staff does them, they are all disinfected properly through the machines. Our restrooms are tended to multiple times a day, however they do get a lot of guest usage so we are sorry to hear you encountered them and they were not tidy. We wish you well and hope you have continued safe travels.

Hello! Thank you so much for your great feedback. We would love to have you come back and stay again and we will happily spoil you even more! :) We do our best to maintain a clean and safe environment for our guests and we are happy you noticed! Parking anywhere in Santa Monica is a bit pricey and we are sorry we do not have our own parking lot....that would be amazing. We hope that even if you had some noisy roommates, you had some fun together and we do hope to see you again on another trip! Safe travels!

Hello and thank you so much for staying with us and also your feedback on your stay. Being considerate about other travelers in shared dorm can be a bit tricky but we do also offer private rooms if you loved the Hostel experience but would like the privacy of your own room. Thanks again and we wish you safe travels!
