My friend and I had a brilliant stay at the hostel, things going on every night including limo tours with free alcohol that take you to clubs and bars in central Hollywood. There is free drink most nights and huge meals for $5!
The farmers market is a 10minute walk away and is amazing, it also has a great shopping centre connected to it called the grove. We went for an hour and ended up spending a whole day there!
The staff were all fantastic especially Bow and Pete who were always helpful and chatty and were great at getting everyone involved in the stuff going on.
The rooms were cleaner everyday and there was a range of people from different nationalities is our room but we all got on just fine. I was a bit hesitant that the rooms would be loud but it was not the case at all......the rooms really are just for sleeping or chilling in the day, at night people either go out or go down to the big area downstairs to chill out and have a few drinks!
The only downside would be the distance to the beach, it's an hour on the bus to Santa Monica, but you can then spend the entire day there and walk to Venice (wear comfy shoes!) 10 mins in to Hollywood blvd though with buses that go about every 10 minutes which is great. Overall a brilliant stay, met some great people and would definately stay there again!
