    We had a double bed with no window except to a interior well and one overhead light and fan. It was awful

    Location of this hotel is amazing, just seconds away from Venice beach. It's also easy to find if you're driving and near other beaches along the Santa Monica coast. The hotel is also close (by car) to shopping malls like the 3rd St promenade and Westfields Culver city, not to mention LAX.

    It was very noisy deep into the night, which was understandable given the average age group of those who stayed there. The whole hotel also didn't smell too good) although the rooms were clean and had ceiling fans and windows to help with ventilation. There were also insufficient toilets, with only 2 on each floor, shared by almost 10 rooms (some with >1 occupancy). Pity though, since everything else was ok.

    Room with no window. Charged 7 dollars for limited WiFi. Poor value for money when spending 100 dollars a night.

    Ok as a hostel. Bath always available and very, very clean. Tv did not function, but that was not the main focus being so near to the beach.

    Fabulous

    I liked the location and the security - need to be buzzed in by staff. I was able to find free parking nearby and there were plenty of amenities (restaurants, stores, etc) close by. The hotel is right by the beach and the boardwalk - what more could you want?

    The only downside was that I could not bring visitors back to my room. I understand the reasons for this (security of other guests), but it would have been nice to bring a guest back to my room for a visit. Other than that, the place was great!

    Superb

    Personnel was very friendly and helpful.

    Some small breakfast (cereals) could have been provided, even if you had to pay for it, I didn't have time to go to the supermarket.

    Great location!Right at Venice Beach. We stayed in a private room with own bathroom-(number 2)what overlooked VeniceBeach and the Frontwalk.Basic room,but clean&tidy. The (payable)WIFI connection with Global Gossip.Cheaper if you would prepay it on-line.More expensive if you buy cards at the reception desk.Bring your own laptop! It's a tidy hostel-no drama'S.-We stayed next to common room- after 10.30pm quiet. A safe feeling,as the front door is locked and reception has to buzz you in.

    The only thing what was missing-a small(complimentary)breakfast. WIFI/calling cards sold by reception were too expensive.

    It was so close to the boardwalk. Only stay here if you cant afford anything better.

    The room was shabby and very hot with no air-con and a window that couldnt open.

    Right there in the centre at Venice beach, everything easily reachable.

    Not able to open a window to get fresh air in, and mandatory airco which blows right on my bed. Kitchen that closes even for a cup of hot tea or so (had a sore throat).

    Superb

    The Hotel Staff is extremely nice and helpful. The room I stayed in was very clean, the bathroom was a particular positive surprise! There is also a shared kitchen with a fridge, which is very convenient. The WiFi internet was also available! The staff will also help you find free parking in the area (so mind not the kid in front of the hotel, offering you a $10 parking place :)) -The price, considering the excellent location is pretty good. If you'd like to experience the la ghetto, it is the perfect place to stay ;)

    First of all, I've stayed there only for one night, so I can only tell about the shared room I was given. It was a pretty much budget type (4 beds/persons) room and the window which, as far as I've been told, was not possible to open. There was only one fan (always on) instead of the last portion of the window, and of course, since I was the last person to enter the room, was given the bed next to that fan :) -It didn't mind me that much, but I guess it would to a lot of others, and either way I think an option to open the window would be better, that's all :) -If you think this could bother you, just e-mail the staff with the request not to be given that kind of a bed/room, and I'm pretty sure they would think of something to help you out and resolve this. Everyone there is really, really nice.
