I stayed at the Hollywood beach hostel for two nights during a holidays trip in December.
The place itself is a combination of hotel and hostel and i stayed in a ten bedroom dorm room. The room itself is relatively small so with so many people it can become very crowded. The beds are not made prior to your arrival which was a hassle when i arrived late and had to make my bed in the dark whilst trying not to wake the other people in the room. There are two bathrooms in the room so there was never any wait to use the toilet/shower. The lockers are very small and can only fit valuables, so your bags will have to remain near to your bed. There is a lack of power outlets in the room aswell which made charging devices hard. The air conditioning unit in the room does work but it is pretty loud, although necessary in the heat.
The staff were helpful and helped me with figuring out the bus i needed to take to get to the greyhound station.
There was no real atmosphere in the hostel section so I wouldn't recommend it as somewhere to meet over travelers.
The location is a two minute walk to the beach which was the main reason i came to this hostel so in that sense it lived up to expectations.
Overall, the hostel is cheap and in a good location next to the beach but it is basic and isn't a great place to meet other people.
