Good stuff. I’m flying to L.A. tomorrow. Just a question, do you ever use AirBnB? I love hostels too, but recently started using AirBnB. I Find it comparable in price and a lot more comfortable too.

Dieter Fischer says:

In Germany you get a even more bigger Shawarma for 3,50 € to 4,00 € freaking expensive :D.

Alejandro Cespedes says:

What is the name of the hostel you stayed in?

Juan Rodriguez says:

The bus fare in San Francisco is $2.25. Living in San Francisco Bay Area is far more expensive then LA. Guaranteed.

I cant find that video of you and Abe swinging around on those rings in Santa Monica. Would be cool if you could put a link for me. Did you also climb up those ropes?

AV39 says:

Haha, I was in the same hostel room a few months ago, it reminds me good stuff!
Many people gathered at night in the lounge before going out. We’ve been about 20 to get to a bar! xD

The hostel is very well located for beach stuff but it’s tricky to see a lot of the city without a car… it’s L.A.

Anyway nice vid!
