I have stayed in a lot of hostels, but this is by far the best one I have ever stayed at! The staff are super helpful with everything, the hostel offers free, healthy and good breakfast everyday, and the rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable! The hostel also hosts a lot of different event to make your stay in LA perfect. Will deffinately stay here the next time I go to LA!

I've been travelling quite a lot in California the past year and also visited several cities on the east coast, without doubt I can say that this is the best hostel in the US! I stayed in Hostel almost in all major cities on the west coast and I never had a better experience than here.

The location is great for anyone, who is coming to LA to see the usual (Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Warner Bros, Universal). Even Downtown or Santa Monica and Venice are not too far (even with public transportation it takes just an hour)

Staff was super friendly, breakfast was great and the rooms were the best I've seen so far. Both times I've stayed in dorm rooms with 6-8 people.

+Big Lockers (including chargers INSIDE: seriously this is a great idea and I don't know why many other hostels don't do it, you can charge your camera over-night and don't need worry it gets stolen)

+ Shelf at your bed (including reading light, 2 additional chargers and enough space to put glasses, cellphone etc.)

+ Huge Mattress (it was bigger than usual and very comfortable)

+ Very Clean

Room Tip: The rooms at the west side can be located right next to the bar / social area but even when i stayed...

Really nice hostel in Hollywood. Rooms are big and have private bathrooms. Beds feel very private, and the hostel is not too noisy at night. The staff is great and there are a lot of different activites to attend like pub crawls, six flags, tours etc. We met a bunch of nice people here, and had a great time! Lots of bars, clubs and places to eat just around the corner. Metro station and buses are also very close. The hostel also has a shuttle service to the beach, which was great! I really recommend this place if you feel like meeting a young and outgoing crowd! Would definetly stay here again.

This is a great option to stay in the heart of Hollywood on a budget - OK, let's say on an "LA budget".
It's a place with a very young and fun vibe: there's always music playing, a lot of opportunities to meet other travelers and a variety of activities organized by the hostel at very fair prices: shuttles to the beach (these are actually free), BBQ nights in the patio, open mic nights, stand up shows, tours (that cost a fraction than those you'd book anywhere else in Hollywood but offer pretty much the same), etc.

We experienced a private room with bathroom, which was rather compact but well equipped: TV, ipod dock, bath tub, hair dryer, etc. Very clean upon arrival and cleaned upon request, although we never felt the need for that.

Breakfast is included in the rate and it's DIY: there's pancake batter for you to cook your own pancakes (and it can be fun to see how some people do this!..), some breads and spreads, coffee/tea, oatmeal, juice and fruit. It gets busy towards the end of breakfast time (I guess backpackers tend to wake up late), so go early if you want to enjoy a more peaceful meal.

This was my first experience staying in a hostel and I was very pleased! The staff was friendly, and the hostel was very clean and modern. It was located right off of Hollywood Blvd which was VERY convenient. In addition, the free shuttle to Venice Beach was a great amenity, however I opted for a paid shuttle so that I could control my arrival and departures. The hostel was not extremely loud in the wee hours of the morning and I got good sleep (when I was ready to sleep). The only drawback: You have to make your own breakfast. I was under the impression that staff would be preparing breakfast and since I partied too hard the night before, I was in no condition to make my own breakfast and had to settle for a dry breakfast of a bagel, banana and juice. Other than that, AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

I had the time of my life at this hostel, great staff meet lots of cool people could not of been happier with the expirience. Awsome little courtyard for drinking and socializing. Would come back for sure and hope it was still the same. I dont see why people complain about the area its fine...i mean there is bums and stuff but they keep to themselves. Cheers guys.

Room Tip: Get a private room if u like to stay out late.
