Get to Know HI Los Angeles Santa Monica

Just blocks from the beach on LA’s trendy West Side, HI Los Angeles Santa Monica hostel is the perfect spot for living the California dream. Sunbathe in our courtyard or surf in the nearby Pacific ocean; spend an afternoon at the famous Santa Monica Pier; bike to nearby Venice Beach or down the coastal trail to the South Bay; or just spend your time discovering the cafes, and restaurants surrounding the hostel and on the 3rd Street Promenade. When you’re ready to explore the rest of LA, skip the traffic on the freeway and hop on the new light rail train just blocks from the hostel — it’ll get you to downtown LA for just $1.75.

Our super-friendly staff will help you make the most of your time in Santa Monica and experience the rest of LA: ask them for tips on their favorite local spots, or grab information on one of our self-guided walking tours (so you can experience the city at a safe distance from others).

Let’s Stay Safe, Together.

While some of our favorite parts of hostelling look a bit different for now, our commitment to keeping our guests and staff safe and comfortable is stronger than ever. Learn about the enhanced safety, distancing and cleaning measures you can expect during your stay.
