What Other Travelers are Saying

I had the best time! Everybody’s super nice, the location is unbeatable and everything is incredibly clean for a hostel.”



This is by far the best hostel I've been to, and I have been to over 20 in the last few months of travel. There isn't one detail or service they missed. From the showers, to the details in the bedrooms, to their cleaning regimen, to their laundry and kitchen facilities, they have thought of it all! It's the small details for me, like hooks in the bedroom to place your towel to dry after a shower for example. HI Santa Monica is the luxury hostel of hostels at competitive prices.”
