 Get to know Los Angeles (no more

Los Angeles is the second largest city in the USA. While the central city area is home to about 4 million people, the metropolitan area is vast and holds over 18 million people in total.

Los Angeles is served by LAX airport as well as a variety of different transport methods. The public transport system inside the city, however, is inefficient and inconvenient. As such, having your own car or a rental is a huge advantage in terms of mobility and sightseeing. Or instead you could ask at your hostel about group tours and outings that are available. Cabs in LA are also an option, but are expensive.

Los Angeles hostels are scattered throughout the area, with the highest concentration along the coastal areas (such as Santa Monica and Venice Beach).

There are loads of things to do in LA. Being the definitive home of movies in the USA, Hollywood is maybe the biggest attraction. You can easily spend a few days in Hollywood, walking the Walk of Fame and seeing all the sights which are all a walking distance away. Venice Beach is a more bohemian experience, with a nice beach and lots of small stores and plenty of travelers to meet. There are also plenty of other suburbs to visit and see, LA is truly a city of diversity.

Los Angeles is a paradise for the party people. Almost everything you can imagine regarding clubs, bars, pubs and nightlife in general, you will find in LA.

This is a complete list of all hostels in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, there are quite a few, so no matter what kind of hostel you're looking for, you should be able to find it here.
