I absolutely loved this hostel. The cleaning lady cleaned the dorms everyday, which is a big concern to me. Great parties. Every night we had something to do. The hostel provided rides to some clubs, and sometimes they were free. Met amazing people.

We stayed in a private room, which was large and clean. The toilet was prone to getting blocked, but we just used the communal ones, and it wasn't a big problem. The hostel is well located in a lively part of LA. They organise dinner and an event every night. We participated in the cheap dinner one night ($5 for... More

Pros: Location. Walking distance to the Grove, short bus ride to Hollywood. Interesting neighbourhood to wander through (Fairfax, along Melrose). Very private room and bathroom is nice in a hostel. Free breakfast. Lots of hostel activites going on if you're interested. Cons: After reading other reviews, I realize we probably had bed bugs as well, since I woke up with... More

Myself and boyfriend stayed here whilst traveling around the states in August. The Pros of this hostel is that it is nicely laid out, lots of things to do, able to book excursions through the hostel, cheap food cooked on site and a large kitchen area. The cons of the hostel is that the room that we stayed in which... More

I stayed in a private room with a friend in March 2010. Arrived from OS flight early and were not able to check in but staff stored luggage and offered that we hang in the lounge. Once checked in I was happy with the room size, balcony and private bath but the room and bedding was shabby and rundown -... More

Down points about the room is that it was on the ground floor and the windows were extremely thin so there was alot of traffic noise aswell as pedestrian noise when... More

as a traveller under 21 i hadnt planned on spending too much time in the states... this hostel was as good as any other but seemed to cater for 21+ as all activites etc include being over 21! i would recomend to over 21,.... but then again if your younger your a bit limited in the states anyway!
