I stayed in this hostel for 6 nights, the rooms are ok however could do with an update and new bunk beds as they are very small and noisy. The rooms have a kitchen however there are limited pots, pans and plates to use this is also the case in the large communal kitchen. The hostel is busy and always... More

Rooms were nice and clean, comfy beds. Great staff, met some of the best people and there's activities every night. The location is great, very close to the subway on hollywood blvd and the walk of fame. It can be a little noisy in the evening. Loved this hostel and would recommend it to anyone!

This hostel is clean and full of people to meet, with options for going to clubs if you are into that sort of thing. With a good location and friendly staff, I say it is a good hostel overall! You must visit the independant New Beverly Cinema nearby (it has awesome double-features).

The location of this hostel is great and within walking distance to shops, transport and attractions. Convenient if you don't have a car to get around in. I also found the staff to be friendly, flexible and helpful, if a little ineffective when it came to inforcing the midnight courtyard curfew. Almost every night I struggled to fall asleep as... More

We stayed for 3 nights in December and the heating wasn't working in our room. We reported it and were told someone would have a look at it but it still didn't work. Breakfast was ok and the staff were friendly. Great location on Hollywood Boulevard, close to the metro for exploring LA.

This place was really ruined by the group of people that were there for me! The location was decent the rooms were ok. The staff not so good or helpful the bar crawl wasn't what I hope for. Loud English Juvenile's should be banded from drinking in group's.

Quite small but very clean confortable, provided with fridge, microwave. Furthermore the parking and the very nice breakfast were included! Fast wifi. The best... More
