When we arrived there were no staff there at all, we sat in the living area for about 2 hours until they arrived. We were shown to our room which was being refurbished at the time, so we kept our bags in a big pile in the corner of the room. The kitchen was not unclean but not particularly hygienic,... More

Staff extremely unprofessional, they didn't even stayed there during the day! They said there would be breakfast, but there was just in my last 2 days there, the place is very dirty, rooms are a nightmare, bathrooms are disgusting, pure horror!! And to complete this extremely terrible experience: some of my clothes were stolen. If you want to enjoy your... More

This is a pretty cool place. It's the cheapest in LA and it was one of the few that will accept American travelers who are in state. It's actually more of a half way house, you can pay rent and stay here for a few days. You might have to be assertive to get a good quiet room like I... More

This is the closest hostel to downtown that I've found and the view of the downtown LA skyline from the back balcony is great, especially at night! The staff are friendly (Carlos & Cindy) and the common areas (living room, dining room, kitchen are quite roomy. There's even another kitchen in a back building. There's also free breakfast: coffee and... More

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Moonpad hostel for 4 nights. Location-wise it's great because the metro is practically across the road but it has very little else going for it. We were given the smallest shared room. The Australia room sleeps four in bunk beds but there's no room to put bags. We are travelling so... More

Friendly and willing-to-help workers! Met many friendly people and had wonderful stayings. Good location that is near a metro rail station. A great memory for me and my friend. Will recommend it to others!

Compared to the moonpad hostel, the really have to step their game up. The location is ok. The metro line is direct next to the hostel that takes you to anywhere in LA you... More

I stayed there while looking for an apartment in LA. I arrived and the bed I had booked online was unavailable. The second day, they had moved all my things into the hallway unattended and my computer was sitting out in front so anyone could walk off with it. I was livid! They said they had the right to touch,... More
