Location is great! Just round the corner from the Chinese theatre and Hollywood Blvd. the hostel decor is really nice and our room was clean and comfortable. Free breakfast is always a bonus, but there was not milk for the musli so it kinda had to be waffles or pancakes. The kitchen is far too small for the size of... More

We stayed here for our first night in LA. The location is unbeatable if you're looking for budget accommodation close to Hollywood Boulevard and all the entertainment near by. We loved the hostel so much we changed our accommodation so that we could stay here again when we return in a few days time. We found our room a bit... More

The location is 2nd to none if you want to stay in Hollywood! It's 100 yards from Hollywood Boulevard and the Chinese Theater. But in a quiet residential street. Quirky rooms with beautiful old furniture. I had a very spacious double room that could easily have fitted 6 bunks. Was very pleasant. Good free WiFi reception. Free lockers for valuables.... More

Excellent location, cleanliness, and service. Recently stayed for six nights sharing a private room with my 21 yo son. Hostel is an old rambling house with lots of natural light and a surprisingly laid back and quiet atmosphere. Conveniently located for Hollywood and Griffith observatory. Downtown is easily accessible on the subway whilst Santa Monica and the Getty are quite... More

This was a really pretty little hostel, in amongst huge buildings and just around the corner from the walk of fame. It seemed out of place- like it should have been a gardeners cottage in Downton Abbey, not the centre of Hollywood. Great facilities, very clean, staff were lovely, free waffles were great, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to... More

The environment of the hostel is warm and nice. There is also courtyard for you to enjoy sunshine. Room size is at the average. There is a small kitchen allows you to do simple cooking. Breakfast of pancake (do it yourself) is provided. The location is at the heart of Hollywood. You need to be careful to look for the... More

We loved this place! Tidy, location to die for, and affordable -with super cheap parking! The reception lady was really friendly, and they also had the cutest dog at the reception :) There was the best hot chocolate in common room, I still miss that... If I went back to LA, I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else.

I stayed here for around 5 nights during my last couple of days in LA after a Topdeck tour. The location is absolutely AMAZING. You are a 3 minute walk away from a grocery store, and you basically just have to walk out to the main strip on Hollywood Blvd. I go a private room, and it was nice, private,... More
