      Hostels to stay in near Union Station LA

      Los Angeles Apr 5, 2014 at 7:26 AM

      Hello all!

      I am flying into LAX next Sunday at 9pm and I am looking for a place to stay until I get my AMTRAX train from Union Station up to San Francisco on Tuesday morning.

      I am planning to go straight from the airport to a hostel / hotel near Union station where I can sleep and recover from Jet lag. I want to stay by Union Station the following Monday day and night so I can be near by to collect my train on the tuesday morning.

      Does anybody recommend the best / cheapest way to get from LAX to Union Station on a Sunday night?

      Does anybody have any recommendations for places to stay near Union Station?

      I am thinking a cheap and friendly youth hostel?

      Also, what type of area is Union Station in?
      Are there any interesting places in walking distance?
      Coffee shops or parks where I can just chill for the afternoon?

      I really look forward to hearing from you!
      Many thanks,

Can we stay somewhere very close to Point Lobos? Should we stay in pacific grove instead of monterey because we can see otters outside the hotel? Should we stay in Cambria or san simeon or is there somewhere closer to the elephant seal rookery?
