Stayed here for 2 nights on a quick weekend surf trip. The hostel is located right in the main party section of Hermosa beach. There are bars/restaurants below it and next to it. I did wear earplugs to sleep at night but I could still hear the bumping from the club below it a little bit. So the location was great if you want to party since the main bars are right next to the hostel.
The surfing was non-existant at the beach so I drove to Manhattan beach nearby which was pretty poor as well. Maybe it was just the swell when I was there.
As far as the hostel itself, I wasn't too impressed. What I enjoy about hostels is the community feel and the chance to meet other travelers. This place had a tiny TV room, and a small reading room and people rarely occupied these rooms.
I paid $80 for a private room (but the bathroom was in the hall shared by everyone) which was a bit much for a hostel but hey I was right on the beach in LA.
