I would not recommend this place as a place to stay. If you want a good experience in LA, stay near Santa Monica or in Hollywood - North Hollywood is a run down area. In terms of my stay, I was not happy at all. The accommodation is basically a house tuned into dormitories with hopes of trying to fit another bed where they can. Currently they have 30 beds squeezed into this house, with some beds just being placed next to the door while people walk in. People who stay here are long term residence who have made it there home, so you will be sleeping in a room with peoples positions everywhere. I was staying in a room with 4 people sleeping, and I do not know when this place was clean well last. After the first night, I woke up with bed bug bites all over my body which have still not gone (4 days later) and still itch. You are given pillows and quilts to use, which I do not know when they were washed last or replaced. The bathrooms are not very clean and have dirty towels on the floor. The cleaner comes in the morning and fails to remove these. It takes a very long time to get a spot to use the showers, I had to wait over 1 hour one morning. The owners claim that this is a couples free stay, but my mother woke up in the middle of the night to hear people having sex in the bathroom. Also the next night, the door was locked when she tried to get in, 5 minutes later it was unlocked to which a male and women walked out - it isn’t too hard to guess what was happening. You do not have any privacy here and the long term residence are all open to 420, so the whole area smells of weed - with an outside seating area (next to the rooms) dedicated to smoking. I am not a fan of this, and wanted to breath clean air - not available here. If you are looking to be a long term resident, I need of cheap accommodation and do not mind where you are staying, then this is you place to stay. But if you want an enjoyable, clean and comfortable stay - DO NOT STAY HERE!

I stayed 3 nights here last week and it was an absolute blast. Very well kept and clean. The owners are beyond hospitable. Very fun meeting people from all over the world and learning a bit about them. The location could not have been better. Universal Studios was a major bucket list item for me and this is literally right down the road. And less than a 10 minute drive from all things Hollywood. Extremely thankful for the people I met and the experiences this hostel afforded me. will be back for sure.

I stayed here with a friend for 3 days on a sightseeing trip of LA. The hostel is located in north Hollywood. The name is misleading because there are hills in between there and the "real" Hollywood, however it is 5 minutes walk to the station and 2 stops on the metro and costs $1.75. On the whole I was satisfied with my experience staying here. The lady who received us was welcoming and showed to our room, gave us our bedding, told us where the relevant transport links are etc. The owner was a very hospitable guy and often chatted with the guests. My room was a 4 person, male only room. The beds were comfortable and the bedding was clean (something not every hostel provides!!) and the room was kept to a good temperature also, which is something to consider when staying in California in summer. The floors were a little dusty and the kitchen wasn't particularly pleasant but I guess I'm being too picky given that it's 30 bucks a night. The bathroom was shared between the entire hostel (18-20 people) which can be a little annoying when it is full. On the whole I would recommend this hostel due to its cheap rates, good hosts and well placed location.

If you like to sleep on the passage or in the kitchen, you are lover of old sheets and mixed dorm rooms. If you like the rough handling, you are intrigued inability to lock the door in the toilet and enjoy bites of bed bugs, you will get an unforgettable experience of this sample of Russian-Ukrainian hospitality and service!

This is the cheapest hostel we could find at that time---20 dollars a day. It was really quite a bargain. There are bunk beds in every room (two to ten people per room). Not very clean but tolerable. What I liked least was that there were no partition between men and women. Everybody could go around the hostel, passing by your bed. Thus do be careful of your personal belongings. Sometimes this would be annoying and frightful, too. The location here is quite nice--- about 15 minutes walking from the metro station(North Hollywood), which is only two to three stations from the Hollywood Road of Fame and Hollywood sign---really convenient for tourists. The thing I liked best about this hostel is that there are some delicious small restaurants beside, e.g. Taco Bells, Yum Yum Donuts, Subway... And they are all quite cheap and delicious. p.s. It was so nice and considerate of the owner of the house for giving us a ride when we couldn't find our way to the hostel late at night.
