Seventeen bucks don't buy much for overnight lodging on L.A.'s swanky Westside, and they buy even less along its palm-fringed beaches. But that's not to say you can't find a surfside room for less cash than it takes to rent a pair of in-line skates. The only catch is, you have to share that room with nine strangers.

Your article ("L.A. On a Shoestring," Metro, June 26) on the growing success of hostels in Los Angeles referred to and was accompanied by a photo of the Share-Tel International Hostel on Brooks Avenue in Venice. The article also noted the Los Angeles City Building and Safety Department's comment that such hostels are permitted in both commercial and multifamily residential zones. Ironically, on June 29, the city's Board of Zoning Appeals issued a ruling that the Share-Tel facility in Venice constitutes a zoning violation in the RD1.5 zone and is thus operating illegally.

Don't be fooled by the term "youth" hostel. In truth, very few International Youth Hostel Federation-sanctioned facilities impose age restrictions. To get that message across, many countries, including the United States, have adopted a new logo with the name "Hostelling International" on it. You will, however, find that most hostel guests are in their teens and 20s, and at times you could be sharing the facilities with school groups.

It will be easier for budget travelers to find economical accommodations in Ecuador this year, and in Italy three new youth hostels will be opening their doors. Fifteen Ecuadorean youth hostels have joined the Hostelling International network, which is affiliated with hostelling associations in 65 countries including American Youth Hostels Inc. Ecuador is the smallest of the Andean countries.
