This is the first location of Surfing with Benefits, a flourishing enterprise that combines the best aspects of Hosteling, Couchsurfing, and luxury travel. Its recently remodeled, upscale dorm with ensuite bathroom was designed with travelers in mind. Best thing about it: it's free! Because you shouldn't have to pay to stay with friends. The flat fee of $35 per day is for your ride from the airport, shuttle to metro station and Pasadena, home-made breakfast, and nightly beer. No storage or cleaning fees. The dorm has a rooftop deck fully furnished for recreation, lounging, and dining with a grill, dining tables/chairs, ping-pong (and beer-pong/flip cup) table, fireplace, Turkish waterpipe, bar and music. The deck overlooks the city, while providing a relaxed outdoors feel. The main building is a geodesic dome that makes it a recognized Architectural Landmark, and a unique place to visit. Always warm water, free wifi and parking.
