Hollywood and Highland Hotel and Hostel
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I always prefer staying in Hostels instead of Hotels, but it's an important distinction to make - this is a HOSTEL, so cheap dormitory style rooming, NOT an inclusive private room hotel experience. And for a hostel, this is a pretty good one. We were in a 6 bed room, and had 2 room mates. The place has a nice atmosphere with movie posters and celebrity images around the walls in addition to paintings and designs in some areas. There is a common TV area, an outdoors area where you can relax and eat, and a small kitchen you can cook in. Every morning there is a simple breakfast of coffee, oatmeal, and peanut butter & jelly provided for free, which in hostel terms is pretty standard in my experience, but there is a fridge to store any food you want to store. The staff member I interacted with the weekend we were there was named Alex - he was super helpful and super nice. The beds were okay, acceptable hostel beds - and you get sheets and a pillow case when you check in. But the real star of this hostel is the location - right on the walk of fame, about 2 blocks down from the Chinese Theater, with a taxi parking and a bus stop right outside the door.

I stayed there for 7 nights and was really excited by the hotel staff and facilities. It is located in the heart of Hollywood.
Resume:
Excellent hotel, good staff, very clean! Good SPA and training hall, I really advise you to go there.
And the place is the best in LA

Room Tip: Just good!

The only good thing is the location. Very close to metro bus and station. However, I was really angry with the manager who called us out of our room with his own mistake. Though he apologized and he was friendly previously, it made us uncomfortable by saying "you two come out." to me and my friend. The bed was uncomfortable and no blankets.

Good location and nice man at the reception, but that was it.

Rooms were poor, matresses were completely torn apart and stuff kept falling from the matress above (4 bed room with bunk beds) onto my face.

Dirty kitchen, no wifi, no breakfast.

Checked out first thing in the morning after one night with no sleep at all (freaky people staying there...)

Room Tip: 4 bed room was groast - did not want to shower, nor sleep, nor stand on the carpet...
