      In a great area, very close to the beach and third street promenade. Friendly and helpful staff, breakfast, towel hire and wifi included in the rate. Small but comfortable bunk beds. Your typical big hostel really.

      It´s close to Santa Monica which takes like an hour to get anywhere else. The no alcohol policy makes it a bit harder to get to know people and that you have to pay $5 for a locker for your bag once you check out is stupid.

      Die letzten Tage in Kalifornien wollte ich dort verbringen, wo ich mein kleines Abenteuer begonnen hatte. Also ging es am Mittwoch zurück nach Santa Monica.

      Fast vier Stunden brauchte ich mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln von Orange County nach Santa Monica. Den restlichen Nachmittag lag ich faul am Strand rum. Und auch der nächste Tag …

      Dank Jetlag konnte ich schon ab 5 Uhr nicht mehr schlafen und so ging es nach einem amerikanischen Frühstück direkt zum Strand.

      Wo gestern noch maßen an Touristen rumwuselten, war es um 8 Uhr morgens noch überschaubar. Ich schlenderte Richtung Venice Beach. Einige Surfer und Jogger waren

      After travelling for 21 hours I finally arrived at my hostel in Santa Monica just before midnight on Monday. On Tuesday morning I wandered around Santa Monica, I went to a lovely little park opposite city hall before going to see the beach front. As I was taking photos a very friendly man offered to take a photo of me - I'm not sure he's used a …
