The lack of air con, use of absolutely pathetic/useless loud industrial fans, screen less windows, thin mattresses, communal showers, squeaky old bunks & crappy wifi made for quite a subpar stay. The price you charged was outrageous for the awful stay I had, and I will definitely be detering anyone who asks me away from staying there. Much better, more comfortable and economical stay down at Samesun Venice Beach.

Great hostel, it looks just like a nice hotel! The location was right at the beach, the staff was helpful, and it's very safe! The only thing they could work on is their breakfast. Overall it was a great stay.
