This hostel scared us a little at first because when we came to check in they asked whether we had sleeping bags, and when we answered yes they proceeded to take them and lock them away in a special room. The strictness of the security rules also came as a surprise after staying in Venice Beach previously, but both of these are good things - just don't be a little shocked.
The dorm rooms are decent, and have a nice clean bathroom inside. The beds are really good (i think they call them a capsule or something like that) because they are enclosed around the end and have a light, shelf, and powerpoints next to the bed. Lockers also had powerpoints inside which was really handy for charging laptops.
The free pancake breakfast is awesome, really nice big commercial kitchen and a fair bit of storage space is available too. Oats and toast are also available.
Great location really close to the action on the boulevard but not so close that it is crazy busy at the front door. Nice courtyard out front and good walking distance to good supermarkets and food etc. We were able to take public transport from our hostel in Venice beach straight to the hostel! The hostel runs a bunch of pretty good tours in the area as well and some dinner deals and things like that, but we didn't think they were great value for money.
All up we had a really good time there, met some really nice people and were very comfortable and well fed during our stay. Keep in mind that they don't even let you take the sleeping bag to your room to re-pack your bag - you have to do it in reception when you check out!!
