Welcome to our hostel

Enjoy the million-dollar view waiting for you at the seaside hostel in Los Angeles South Bay. Situated in the scenic Angel's Gate Park, Los Angeles South Bay has panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island and features spectacular sunsets.

The hostel caters for people wanting private, semi-private and dorm rooms, including a self-service kitchen, dining room, library, TV room and laundry facilities. Plus free Wi-Fi.

This hostel is a great place for you to unwind as it is far enough from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles with its picturesque hiking spots but still has great nightlife entertainment . After the summer season the hostel is only open October through May for groups of 20 people or more.

This hostel is doscusting, the kitchen area is swarming with flies especially in the morning over all the breakfast equipment. The 'mattress' in the bedrooms consists of a thin piece of foam which has warn out and makes you sink into the hard spot in the middle. Anyone can walk in and out of the hostel and into the rooms unchecked. I would not stay here again. The only good thing about this hostel is the view you get from the liberty bell.

Hope to have the place available year round. That will make Southern California be more favorable

The pillows are a bit too hard and overstuffed and not so soft so that makes for neck issues. The bedding needs a bit of updating as they are not so soft much anymore. this is just normal wear and tear, but the pillows need to have more choices than overstuffed and hard. That is really an issue for some of us with neck issues.

Location is not worth the low price if you don't have a car. Two out of the 3 staff members we had to deal with were extremely unfriendly. However, the hostel was very clean and safe, even though it looks more like a prison that an actual hostel. Wi-fi only works in the main building (and not working all the time).
