I am a little late with my reviews, even Trip Advisor doesn't let me date it farther back than 1 year ago, but I stayed here for 4 nights with a friend in August 2005 in one of the private rooms. It was basic but nice, and an awesome location and great price! I would consider it again for myself... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in August. We had a private bedroom with its own bathroom. It's very basic, but for the price you cannot complain. The location is GREAT - close to the hustle and bustle....and the fabulous Farmer's Market.

LA can get expensive with hotels located near areas of interest. This is well located by a 15 min walk to Farmers Market, 20 min to WeHo & about 30 min walk to Hollywood & Highland. If you put your name down for the free airport shuttle check in advance it's still coming though!

I have stayed here a few times. It's a hostel so of course the rooms are basic. They are clean so that is all that matters. The kitchen is fine too and they have a few communal areas. The reason I keep going back is the atmosphere here. They have bbq's or trips to other hostels or group nights out.... More

I travelled with my son - I was the oldest in the hostel !!! We had private room - it was very very basic but what do you expect for such a low price. I felt safe and it is a great location. For younger and open travellers - go for it. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Loved West Hollywood.

Economic. Reasonably clean. Needs an upgrade to some facilities.

I booked it and liked what i saw on pictures, however the reality was a bit different. I cannot say anything bad about people working there, as they were friendly and trying to help with all informations you need to know in L.A. (and there are many...) However, i was dissapointed by the rooms, beds, bathroom, as those were not... More

This Hostel is really nothing special at all, place was dirty in general (beds, bathrooms etc). I would never consider staying here again, I found it hard to sleep due to the noise from the patio area down below, where people use to smoke at all hours, and the smell in the room from this, is really not that pleasant....

I booked this hostel for a cheap stay in LA back in July. I saw the reviews for the nearby Banana Bungalow and decided I didnt want to stay there, this however looked smarter and better recieved.... Imagine my alarm when I got an email three days before my stay saying that "The Orbit had Moved around the corner" THE... More

This place should not call itself a Hotel and Hostel - we got a private room and there was nothing hotel-like about it. Dirty rooms, stained sheets and carpets, weird smell throughout and cockroaches in the bedroom. We didn't eat the free breakfast as we didn't trust it so I can't say what that was like. All-in-all, great location on... More
