I came on a last minute trip and it was affordable! I enjoyed my time at the hostel, I appreciated the fact that I could book a female only room. The surrounding area is beautiful and super walkable. Because it’s situated near restaurants and bars, it definitely isn’t super quiet at night, but if you can sleep through the noise, it’s a great place to stay!

This was a great spot. The staff were awesome! Very very helpful. Kudos to them. The kitchen was small but perfect for the self made breakfast they provide. The bathrooms were spotless. This was my first Hostel stay and I loved it. The location....wow. The bar next door does have live bands on the weekends but the hostel gives you ear plugs if you need them. I was unbothered by it. Daily events were a nice touch.

Hotels usually have friendly staff, but there was a real sense of care and warmth here at Surf City. Despite our unexpected personal circumstances, they did their very best to accomodate my wife and I with the utmost respect and humanity. Shout out to Bruno for helping us adapt to our first chaotic day in the US!

I enjoyed my stay at the Surf City Hostel. For last minute booking and affordability they worked perfectly. Excellent location right in the center of Hermosas downtown. Lots of great restaurants and things to do by the beach. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely stay again when passing through or one of their other affiliated hostels. 5 star overall reviews but 4 stars for the room just because it is bunk beds but it's understandable for being a hostel and the mattress was comfortable.
Need a place to sleep so I could get up early a d run the coast. This place was perfect. It can be loud in the rooms due to a live music in the Mar below. I'm a US military vet so the sound didn't bother me one bit. Can't say the same for others plan accordingly. Also parking is difficult. There's free parking somewhere nearby. I never found it. I parked at Redondo beach pier a d paid for the night. Its. 1.8 mile walk to Hermosa. Again nothing that bothers me, you I can't speak for. Either way a great affordable place to sleep.

It's the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The kitchen is small; in the morning you can make your own pancakes. There is a lounge with tea that is open all day & during the night. The location is unparalleled for its right on the beach.

I'm so happy I decided to stay here. My friend had stayed there in the past so I felt safe with this choice. And it's situated in one of my favorite places in LA so I was happy to go.The whole experience was amazing.Breakfast is included (continental and pancake mix) and the volunteers organize activities every night which makes the hostel very social and a fun place to be (go to BBQ night on Saturdays for burgers and hot dogs!)The volunteers are so friendly and you'll make great friends whether it's with them or other guests.The bathrooms are super clean as well as the restrooms, and you'll be provided with linens and towels. And the beds are comfortable!A massive thank you to Sophie and Carey for making my stay an amazing one. They are always ready to help you and are fun people to talk and hang with. Truly the best! Cannot wait to come back!
If you need to stay close to the beach and the heart of Hermosa Beach, you are at the right place. The only thing you have to take into consideration is the noise of the bars and restaurants close by. So have your ear plugs, your headphones ready or wait it out. Rooms are good maintained and the stuff is super friendly. Just don't expect anything super fancy, it's as good as a hostel you remember from your youth's can be. Also parking is not that easy and public transit doesn't come as often as your like.

The best hostel experience I have had. Clean, considerate workers and NO drinking/ drugs. 2 minutes walk to beach and the bar scene is the best. *Note: bring 100$ deposit or a credit card for them to hold prior to check-in*

Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well maintained but the beds and some of the shower stalls could use a bit more privacy like curtains. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is great as the hostel is located close to the beach and many bars. One downside of this is that it can be very noisy until late in the evening. The hostel did provide free earplugs to compensate for this.

We stayed in the private room and had very mixed feelings about the place.Location: we loved the location during the day. It was super convenient, and we loved walking all around OB. Unfortunately at night it was so loud it was impossible to sleep. There is no A/C, so you have to leave the windows open. The entire room was shaking from the noise until at least 2am.Cleanliness: the sheets seemed to be freshly laundered but as we were leaving, we found trash from a previous visitor under the bed. The bathroom was decently clean but definitely not the most clean hostel I've ever stayed at.Comfort: this is where we had the biggest problem. The bed was rock hard. I'm not sure if they had other rooms available because they charge $20 to change rooms after check in.Just another thing to be aware of. They have a policy where you can't have anything but water in your room. Not a huge deal, but we do enjoy takeout occasionally after a long day of traveling, so it was a bit annoying.Overall we wouldn't stay there again, but you won't find anything as cheap in the area.
