Surf City Hostel

Los Angeles is full of cultural exchange. Hermosa Beach is the volleyball capital. Sunny days most days of the year. You will be able to meet people from all around the world since we have international guests and staff.

Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We like to have fun at this hostel. Come and make new friends! We are located in Hermosa beach, a small touristic town in Los Angeles County.

The hostel is located right on Hermosa Beach pier, so if you're just looking to hang out and enjoy the beach and bar scene then this could be the perfect place for you.

Tasks themselves are very easy and Angelica always gives you 2-3 days off a week if you request in advance.

If you want quality surf (this beach had mostly closeouts and the water is ice cold!) or to explore LA and it's surroundings (without a car), then this isn't a great location. Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica/Venice are all approx. 2 hours away by bus.




My goal to improve my language has been reached. I had a real great experience in a friendly atmosphere, with mutual respect for everyone. My painting activity was basic and only required to be careful and rigorous.

Surf City Hostel is a literal oasis situated just outside the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Here you will find a small-town community filled with the peace, ease, and serenity of a beach town…not to mention the relative proximity to everything L.A. & Hollywood has to offer.

An incredibly big ‘Thank You’ to Angelica. She has created a work schedule that allows you to get some personal time each and every day, despite having two off days. The tasks she’s put together are not difficult; they simply require a sense of efficiency and a keen eye on the details.




I had an amazing experience in Surf City Hostel, probably was the best time in California.
I made a ton of friends there and I feel really glad to volunteer with an amazing volunteer group.
I would like to say thank you to Angelica, for training, for all support and always help us with anything. I just felt like I was at home.
The tasks are not difficult, and all are very well organized and clear. They definitively want to be sure that you're having a good time.
I highly recommend this place. I will be back, for sure!!
Wish all the best.

Hermosa Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches here, the sidewalk is very cool and always busy, the pier is also beautiful and is very close to the hostel, the location of this hostel is amazing. The hostel is really cool, Angelica and Marcela are sweet and they do everything to make us feel good. Thanks for everything.
