Well...we have been travelling for three years and have stayed in more places than I can remember. I can say that this place was not high on my list.
Lets start with the staff. NOT IMPRESSED!! They were rude and extremely unhelpful, had no idea about where to go or what to do in LA. They live here for crying out loud and they didn't even know there was a huge red tourist bus that went to al the major sites.
Also, with the planned activities what a joke. We had free dinner at the Vibe Bar, which they forgot to tell us that this 'Bar' was actually just their other hostel not even a proper bar. Then they had a free shuttle there, dropped us off without telling us anything about where we were going, then after asking I found out there was no shuttle back.
Now onto location. Not really knowing anything about LA before getting here. West Hollywood is a good hour walk to Hollywood and over an hour to the beach. Wish I had know that when I was booking this hostel. My advice, stay in Hollywood, not West Hollywood!!
If you are thinking of staying at the West Hollywood, don't stay somewhere else that is close to civilisation.
