There is no reason to stay at this hostel, given there are other good ones. The location is seedy - as a single woman, I was approached on the street trying to get to Hollywood Blvd. I stayed one night, then went some where else. The Hollywood International hostel - which I've stayed at before - is a much, much better location - directly across from the Kodak theater - USA Hollywood is about 7 blocks down, more deserted, definitely worse area.
Room are clean and a good size, kitchen is good, no "main" room, just the bar upstairs. Staff is bunch of teeny-bopper rock star wannabes who will hang out with you.
If all you want to do is get drunk at the hostel lounge (cheap) and either pass out or throw up in your room, this is a good place. It does not have the usual tour information, etc., that you find in other hostels.
Another really nice hostel is the Orbit - they do a great job re hook-ups for tours with others in the hostel, free TV taping passes, etc. but their location - while very safe - does not have the Hollywood Blvd. night life.
The location of the USA Hostel Hollywood makes is very questionable . . . . not particularly safe to walk around at all. I made a run for it to get some food, and was approached several times.
