I stayed in a 6 person dorm room which was fine, pretty much what you pay for, the nice big lockers were very much appreciated. However if you are staying here make sure you get some really freakin good earplugs as the air conditioning in...More

Wonderful location, great staff, bedroom was superb, breakfast generous, socialising areas were abundant and laundry clean and efficient.
So why not 5 stars?

My friends and I had booked to stay in this hostel as we wanted to spend a couple of days at the beach and exploring Santa Monica. Upon arrival (10am) we were told we could not check into our room until after 2pm. We were...More
The location is great and there are some good facilities but was let down by bad cleanliness during my visit. Every single time I visited one of the communal bathrooms during my two night stay there was blood or some kind of mess, which wasn't...More

Also Known As
Hostelling International - Los Angeles/Santa Monica Hotel Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller
coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

We used the tour company next door to the hostel, they run a bus daily to Disneyland. You can either buy your own ticket to Disney and then pay the tour company for the bus journey or you can buy the Disney ticket and bus as a package.
If you can though, I would use an uber to get there and back. It gives you a lot more flexibility with time ☺️
