“Very professional hostel”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

This places does everything well that's really important in a hostel. Good beds that are built up so you can easily sleep even with lights on, good showers, an excellent kitchen with great included breakfast and good WIFI. The hostel has a laundry that guests can use cheaply in the afternoons. Common areas are pretty good for interaction.

Above and beyond are the power sockets, personal lights and shelves in the bunks, lockers with sockets inside them and many, many activities, some free, others discounted or cheap.

The crummy thing about this hostel is the parking but it is just off Hollywood Blvd. Expect to pay $16 or more for a day in the cheapest 24 hour place or waste time circling the block trying to get one of the limited spots that don't have short limits all the time or are reserved for local residents.

A very good Hostel with friendly staff and guests and although I was an older visitor I was made welcome by everyone. The Hostel provides lots of in-house entertainment. The only inconvenience was that although linen was supplied you have to make your own bed.

I have stayed in Hostel's throughout North America and Europe.

This hostel was good for a short term stay while exploring the Hollywood Area.

The rooms were well laid out, with individual lockers for every bed. I especially liked that each locker has its own plug in's inside, allowing you to charge your stuff while your not there, and keep it secure at the same time. Also, the beds had a small metal privacy screen around your head, and included your own light, and a shelf to store your valuables on while you sleep.

My one problem with the rooms, were that each room had a bathroom attached to it, that is much like the bathroom one would find at home (one sink, toilette, bathtub/shower combo). That one bathroom makes it difficult when there are eight or more people in the room trying to use it, and can be disruptive to others in the middle of the night. I much prefer the centralized bathroom down the hall concept, popular in other hostels.

The area in which the hostel is located is somewhat rough. It is only one block away from Hollywood Boulevard, but that boulevard itself was not what I expected, with many low end shops (Bong shops, cheap tourist shops etc) and a large number of abandoned businesses and homeless people.

All in all, this hostel was great for a short stay, and to explore Hollywood Boulevard for a day or so.

America is not the friendliest backpacker destination so I was a bit apprehensive about staying at this hostel, however I found the staff extremely helpful, always smiling and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you have a good day, they gave me recommendations on where to go and how to get there, not that you need to go far as the hostel is in a fantastic location, just a short walk from the hollywood walk of fame, Chinese theatre and local amenities. The hostel itself is clean and the rooms are en-suite which is a huge bonus! I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel!

I stayed one night here with some friends. We are satisfied with the great location, friendly+helpful staff and clean room. I really love that they have the electrical outlets in the lockers so I can leave my phone and camera charge in it safely.

The fun part of staying in a hostel is to join the activities. Me and my friends took the limo tour+free drinks. It was so fun taking a limo in Hollywood xD we all had a very good stay here!

This was an excellent place to stay,
We stayed 2 nights. All you can eat bbq, limo tours and free drinks. what more could you want.
The rooms were small but comfy, we had a private room and i think i would do that again, it gives u freedom to come and go with out upsetting other patrons.
The staff were all very friendly and the atmosphere was always the same. It felt very safe while inside.
Very close to all that you need and only 5 mins walk from the bottle shop. Thats what matters yeah?
The limo tour was good for what i remember and the night clubs we went to also very good.
Overall a very good place to stay and well priced. i would choose this place again

Room Tip: Go for private if you can, unless you have more people to share with
