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.

Thank you for your review and your continued support of our hostel. Being a smaller hostel, we unfortunately do not have the ability to have a dedicated phone operator but each staff member does their best to manage the various roles they assume while on duty.

Update the building. Although the sheet and room seem cleaned, I can feel bugs crawling on me. It was a okay place to spend the night

I booked a private room with a double bed but was given a room with bunk beds instead. No allowances for change and no considerations for their mistake.

I found getting adjusted to the hostel to be difficult. I wasn't told there was a code to get in the building after hours, nor to get in my dorm / room. I had to seek this information out. The first time I was only given a verbal notice of the code for the bunk, nothing was said about the main building. The second time after arriving late at night I had to call the front desk to be let in. I had to try a second phone number I found on facebook because the one in my email didn't work.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry that the staff member that checked you in failed to give you a proper info at check in. We'll have a chat with the staff member to make sure they are giving everyone the guest orientation at check in. We were having issues with our main phone line and tried our best to quickly convey to guests what number to reach us at. Thanks for staying with us and bearing with our hiccups.
