HI Los Angeles Santa Monica


Just 1 block from the beach and the famous Santa Monica Pier on LA’s trendy West Side, HI Los Angeles Santa Monica is the perfect spot for your LA Marathon adventure.

The modern communal areas and airy courtyard are great spaces to meet fellow athletes and supporters, plus the on-site communal kitchen is top of the range and wouldn’t be out of place on TV’s top cooking show! It is fully equipped so you can store your own groceries and make your own meals to stay on top of your pre- and post-race nutrition plan.

Daily breakfast is included during your stay, as well as free tea and coffee throughout the day.

When you’re ready to explore it couldn’t be easier, with a wide choice of things to do and see – surf in the 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 discover the many shops, restaurants and bars surrounding the hostel and on the 3rd Street Promenade.  Want to save a few bucks?  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.

Rooms here are suitable for every budget – with beds in shared dorms perfect for cost-conscious solo travellers, to private rooms for couples or friends.  If you are travelling as a group, you can even hire a whole dorm room to yourselves!  Dorm rooms come with newly updated air-filters, personal USB power outlets by each bed, bedsheets and towels and include access to an in-room locker (padlocks not included).

Please note there is also a “No Alcohol Policy” at this property.
