    Lage unschlagbar, freundliches Personal! Dürftiges Frühstücksbuffet, marodes Mehrbettzimmer, nachts eher unsichere Gegend!

    Die Lage ist ohne Zweifel top! Besser geht es nicht, wenn man Venice und vor allem den Strand bis Santa Monica hoch erkunden möchte. Auch der Airport ist schnell erreichbar. Das weniger erfreuliche ist das mäßig freundliche Personal. Der Check-In hat ewig gedauert und man wurde nur relativ unfreundlich in die Schlange verwiesen, die dann über 45 Minuten gedauert hat abzuarbeiten. Das sollte deutlich schneller zu vollziehen sein!

    Weitgehend nettes Personal, Zimmer sind recht geräumig, Matratzen leider ziemlich durchgelegen. Gibt Gemeinschaftsräume und Gemeinschaftsküche, die schon heruntergekommen sind, aber immerhin vorhanden. Lage ist fast direkt am Strand, aber an der Hauptstraße, sodass es nachts immer sehr laut ist. Für die Leistung etwas teuer, aber kann man machen

    Die Lage ist perfekt, das Hostel an sich gewöhnungsbedürftig. Die Stimmung ist relaxder, so sieht das Hostel aber auch aus. Man spürt jede Feder im Bett und die Sauberkeit lässt auch zu wünschen übrig, dafür ist das Frühstück aber ziemlich lecker (Waffeln, Bratkartoffeln, Eier, Toast).

    Ich war schon an vielen Orten dieser Welt. In vielen Hostels und Hotels. Je nachdem in sehr günstigen bis sehr teuren Unterkünften (Hostels, Motels bis 5 Sterne Hotels). Diese Unterkunft ist bis jetzt die esrte, welche meine Erwartungen deutlich untertroffen hat - teuer, schlechte Matratzen, nicht sehr freundliches Personal, keine wirklichen Aktivitäten im Hostel, Reception zwischen 4 Uhr 8 Uhr Morgens nicht besetzt, schäbige Zimmer, ... Der Standort ist super und manche der Mitarbeier auch.

    Es war unglaublich laut ... der Versuch in einem 9er Mädchenzimmer zum schlafen zu kommen war vor 2 Uhr Nachts aufgrund herumrennender und schreiender Leute auf den Fluren und immer wieder rein und raus gehenden Zimmergenossen fast unmöglich. Die Zimmerausstattung war miserabel: quietschende durchgelegene Betten, nicht funktionierende Lichter, alte und verratzte Möbel. Die Duschbrause war auch nur halbwegs akzeptabel. Um 11 Uhr MUSS man das Zimmer verlassen damit "geputzt" werden kann. Miserabel

    Eine Übernachtung im Hotel im Zentrum der Stadt (gut erreichbar mit Metro/Bus) kostete mich 70 Fr. (!) weniger, zudem war dort ein anständiges Frühstück inbegriffen, moderne Einrichtung, sauber, gute und saubere sanitäre Anlagen. Gemäss Bestätigung wäre der zu bezahlende Betrag noch US$ 158.10 gewesen, 21.70 $ Steuern inbegriffen. Bezahlen musste ich - trotz Einwand - 177 $ plus ein Depot von 100$, Quittung wurde mir keine ausgehändigt. Kommen noch die Gebühren an Hostelworld dazu...

    Einmal und nie wieder. Mehr fällt mir dazu nicht ein. Ein etwas älterer Mitarbeiter beim Check-In war so etwas von unfreundlich, so etwas habe ich noch nie erlebt. Er schnauzte uns unentwegt an und hat uns später einfach ganz ignoriert. Die Räume waren alt, abgewohnt und schmuddelig. Abgenutzte, ausrangierte Einrichtung. Ich habe schon oft in Hostels geschlafen und obwohl wir diesmal ein Privatzimmer gebucht haben, war es mit nichts zu vergleichen.
