We stayed in a private room with bathroom. Service was excellent, as soon as we arrived all were helpful with tours and things to do around LA. Room was near the main road so very noisy, air con also loud but overall room and clean and tidy. All we needed for a 2 night stay.

I actually can't say a nice word about this place. The room smelt disgusting, the sheets weren't clean. Parking was ALWAYS an issue. The hot water only worked after running the water for literally 15 minutes. We asked for our room to be cleaned and all they did was take the towels out and only gave us 2 back (even... More

Had a great 4 nights here, not far to walk and you're at the Chinese Theatre. Great hostel that provides events and nights out for everyone staying. Also helped us book our trip to Disneylan with their daily morning drop off to the coach station. Not the best breakfast you'll ever have but for what you pay I was suprised... More

It's true what they say, you pay for location. Overall nice stay, friendly atmosphere, not easy to find staff unless you go reception, pushy with their events which I found annoying. Overall nice place to stay and sleep and good location with great access to public transport and major highways

Great location to pop down to the walk of fame, or public transport - but the rooms are pretty average, nothing special. The shared rooms - are noisy - the fans in the bathrooms do not turn off straight away with the light - with 14 people in a room - its basically on all night. Cleaned regularly which I... More

Me and my boyfriend decided to have a coast to coast trip to america. Our first week was thanksgiving in Los Angeles and this place was by far the best accommodation of our entire American trip. Not so much for the room or the location which were just basic but for the outstanding care we received at the front desk.... More

We booked as a family group. We were advised that there was security on site and that after midnight the party noise would be managed. Each night there has been excessive noise, loud drunken arguments in the corridor outside rooms and groups sitting outside rooms talking loudly until 3am creating some disturbance and no sign of security at all. Whilst... More

I stayed here at the beginning of my backpacking holiday to try and save some money, even though I stayed in a private room. The room was nice, basic but had everything I needed, including decent free wifi. The only downside was my room was very close to the main road so it was loud at night between the partying... More
