    At just $30.00 a night per bed the price is excellent. The rooms are clean, the guests are friendly, the location is right on Hermosa beach. You can walk on the pier right from the hostel. Free towels linens and breakfast. I highly recommended it.

    Response from Adrian R | Reviewed this property |
    There is no space for pets as well as the entrance to the hostal is by stairs since the reception and rooms are upper the second floor. So, is not pet friendly and not suitable for persons that can't walk the stairs.
