“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed here with a friend- my first time staying in a hostel, so I didn't know quite what to expect. The hostel was in a satisfactory condition of cleanliness, although the bathrooms didn't seem like they had been cleaned in a while as there were stains in the bowl of our room's toilet when we arrived, and they still hadn't been cleaned off by housekeeping when we left 3 nights later.

The staff were mostly friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was basic but what you would expect from a hostel. The location is good, but I wouldn't recommend walking down Hollywood Blvd by yourself at night- my friend and I were followed by some guys who were high on drugs and seemed to be eyeing off my handbag.

All in all, I'd recommend you stay.

We had a great time here! There were awesome people staying there and the staff are always willing to help. There is a fun vibe about the place and plenty of activity sign ups (some free some not) that are great!
On the most part it was quiet when it needed to be but I would ask if possible to have your room on the side not next to the car park. We were next to the public car park and there were arguments and yelling from drunk people on the street. It can be a little bit seedy in Hollywood but this hostel does the best it can with the area and we felt safe. At night they make sure you have your card and handle situations where people abuse the card system, appropriately.

Would recommend this place to anyone wanting to be close to the Hollywood action

Thanks for a great stay!

My friend and I had travelled from Australia and this was my first time staying in a hostel. The presentation of the hostel was good and staff were very helpful upon check in.

The facilities were all kept in good order and clean condition. The breakfast was basic but it is a hostel after all!

Good range of activities on, missed the wine tour (due to hangover) but went to the comedy night which was run which was enjoyable.

A lot of Australians were here but enough others to meet people from many parts of Europe as well.

I stayed for three days. Met quite a few people thanks to pub crawls and the many events organized by the hostel. It is right by hollywood blvd so as soon as I dropped off my bags I was walking on the walk of stars. The employees of the hostel are really helpful and make food every night which you can enjoy for only $7. Oh and they have live stand up comedy on thursday, that was awesome!!

I stayed there from 09.24.2014 to 02.10.2014. Next time to LA, I will stay there again for sure.

ADVANTAGES
It' s an excellent place near Hollywood Boulevard + metro station. Not far from West Hollywood. You have direct transport access to the nearest beaches-Santa Monica, Venice + Malibu. It's the place that international young travelers from Europe+Australia mainly prefer to stay. You can easily have contacts there because 9 to 10 are foreigners + they are looking for friends + flirts during their stay in the US. What I found most attractive to this hostel is the organisation of night clubbing + visiting tourist attractions, so you don' t have to worry if you did not schedule your visit. Everything is already planned by them + you simply choose where you follow them.

DISADVANTAGES
You are not allowed to have guests to your private room from LA county, so your interaction with locals is limited. + the prices of the private rooms are quite expensive comparing to other hostels of the area.

The dorm rooms are yuck and apparently they house travelling bums and people who enjoy vomiting in their own beds... Understandably I could only bear 1 night in the dorm I booked so went into a private room the following night - charged full price, of course. Crap service, it's pricey and the breakfast is average. Plenty of other options available round town.

This was a fantastic hostel for multiple reasons. I stayed there this past weekend (28th-29th Nov. 2014) by myself. They accepted me without a reservation late Friday night with only one space left. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean, and cleaned daily. They provide clean towels and bars of soap and the breakfast is free (cook-your-own-pancakes!), and most importantly the front patio area is great - full of couches, music and beer pong. I met others immediately and went out with them the first night and joined the pub crawl the second night - both were a blast. All in all, great staff, great amenities, 100% clean and a great place to meet others if you are solo.

Only downside: 1) 10:00am checkout time - 11 would be a little nicer but no big deal
