“Great place”
Reviewed October 11, 2005

It is a great place - clean, safe and within 1/2 block of Hollywood Boulevard. The caretakers, Fidel and Eduardo, are very helpful. I faced no problem at all. In fact while I was there a team of 30 German girls aged 10 to 15 stayed for a night. They were on a Choir singing tour. I spoke with their team manager and he did not mention about any problems.

this hostel had the scariest shower I have ever seen in my life. It was a moldy coffin of a space with dim light that would be perfect for any horror movie (would make a nice elevator to hell). The bed and the whole house was dusty and creepy. I made it through one sleepless night before moving to a better place around the corner.
