This was a good place to stay for one night, although I will say to remember to BYO milk, etc for breakfast as it isn't supplied. Also, if you are wanting a hostel where you can easily meet people, the common areas are not necessarily conducive to this. The staff however were really helpful and the rooms were clean.

Expensive for a hostel, but good facilities and most importantly, close to Hollywood Boulevard and Hollywood and Highland metro. Pedro at the desk was very friendly and helpful.

It's a very nice place with very nice staff. Clean, reasonable money for this location. Breakfast is rather ok (not very big choice but pancake or waffel is fine for backpackers:) There is one drawback - room was noisy:(

Great location. Comfortable stay. Free waffles for breakfast and tea/coffee all day! Right in the centre of Hollywood! Walking distance to the Hollywood and highland mall, Madam Tussaud's, Ripley's believe it or not, CVS and many more. It's also right next to the Magic Castle. Ideal for a Universal studios visit.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
