    Freedom. Right on the beach. Staff nice. Common lounge area. Full kitchen. Several bathrooms and many near by. Amazing location right on the beach. Smoking area out back allows both tabacco/420 no alcohol consumption on property after 10pm quiet time after 11pm come and go as you please. Small locker for important belongings and just leave your shoes/clothes on your bed or below it. Close walking distance to anything you need CVS Vons 7-11 and tons of food near by. Cheebahut is across the street. So if you are cheap get yourself foot long subs for like 10 bucks and they are open till midnight. I had no issues with queueing up for the bathroom so I am not sure what people mean about not enough bathrooms. First hostel experience and it won't be my last. It was one of the best and amazing experiences I had. Keyless pass code entry so you don't have to worry about losing your card key. Rental program for ultra cheap. (I didn't rent anything) activities bullitin board. Free yoga on the beach and more! ( I went for a concert so I wasn't there for any yoga or surfing or anything. But they have boards lessons bikes and more to rent for waaaayyy cheap. Like 20 bucks for your entire stay. The place is clean and smells nice. People said it's loud because of neighboring businesses a few bars near by being loud at night. I didn't experience that. However I wasn't getting back to the hostel until around 2 am every night and the bars around town close at like midnight even though they say open until 2 am on the door. I went to both duck dive and dirty birds next to the hostel at midnight 2 nights in a row Saturday and Sunday night and both were closed at midnight. So they missed out on my money I guess. I am from Vegas our city doesn't sleep.

    No ear plugs some people snore exceptionally loud but not a big deal. Did not get to choose my bunk would have preferred to be on the bottom being on the top was a major major major drawback. Climbing the ladder sucks crawling into the bed under the wire for the curtain is difficult dropping things off the bed means you gotta climb back down and fetch it. They had breakfast complications with their taco joint they share walls with so the staff just bought croissants and donuts for the morning hot coffee too. I would have loved a mini breakfast burrito but whatever lol I am not there for the breakfast haha.

    Great location on the beach

    Cold and damp room with questionably clean bed and sheets.
