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.

I've choosen HI-Los Angeles-South Bay mostly because of it's location - wanted a place to have a rest doing nothing :) And it worked extremely well: the hostel is very quiet, no parties and nobody try to socialize too much :) and staff is very, very friendly and helpfull. Free breakfast is good plus you can buy some eggs if you can't eat carbs any more)) I like San Pedro as well. The only problem I had got - didn't realize how huge is the city of LA! Next time I'll drive :)
