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.



Very enjoyable stay in a safe and quiet area of LA.The workload is reasonable so you can enjoy all the outdoors and nightlife around.Many thanks to Angelica for her assistance.If you are looking for something chill and fun ,come to surf city hostel.



I wanted to try this experience at the age of 58.
I think that it is not easy to propose yourself in a world mainly of young people but it is just a thought because during your stay you get very rich also living with young people.
The manager and the permanent staff of the hostel help a lot to make you feel good.
I think this is a wonderful experience where the context of the beautiful location has contributed further to make your stay enjoyable.

Staying at Surf City Hostel was a wonderful experience and I recommend it to anyone! The location is beautiful and everyone that volunteered there was dependable/kind/ and interesting. Angelica is a great manager and made my stay very comfortable. Thanks for everything Surf City!



Angelica is super nice and she is always helping you if you have a problem or need anything. The other volunteers are great as well. The location is super and directly at the beach. Some rooms even have an ocean view. The only drawback is that you have too few days off because sometimes you have to work for only 4 hours a day. But all in all, I had a great time at this hostel :)
