This was hands down the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at, I stayed in a few before but this one is actually like a college dorm stay, I stayed in the 6 all female dorm, everyone was quiet and respectable. The hostel has a tv room, library, shared kitchen and multiple bathrooms/showers and even a free comedy show night, I felt comfortable and safe! 5 Stars
This was my first stay at this location and I would most definitely stay here again! The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful during my check-in and even provided resources about the area throughout my stay. What I loved the most about my experience at HI International Hostel was it’s close proximity to Santa Monica Beach. You can literally see the ocean and feel the cool breezes as soon as you step outside the front door! This place exceeded my expectations for a hostel experience. Everything from the beach to the Third Street Promenade are all within walking distance. You won’t need a car, unless you plan to venture further away from the area. The hostel is also close to public transportation. There are so many amazing things that I could say about my stay there. The facility and dorm areas were exceptionally clean, comfortable, and inviting. This hostel also offers various free community activities for its guests, which makes it easy for solo travelers to feel welcome and meet new people. I loved this place so much that I’m already planning my next visit! Enjoy your stay!
