“Awesome experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I stayed 8 days, and it was just freaking awesome. I might have stayed a little bit too much, but every night there was something to do, and I never thought I'd be able to get so much stuff included within the $30/night. Free breakfast, and free dinner/drinks some days were just absolutely incredible.

Stayed here for 4 night. We stayed in a 6 person dorm room. The rooms were great and each one had its own bathroom and kitchen and dining table. The staff were friendly from the moment we arrived and helped us organise some tours and car hire. Breakfast was ever morning and was good. They also organised fun activities at night like BBQ's and games. It was a great atmosphere and I had a great stay!

Great atmosphere at this hostel. Lots of activities always going on and breakfast each morning is great. Large common areas as well.

Stayed in a private double room. Shower and kitchen facilities were great.

4 block walk to main part of Hollywood boulevarde. And staff were very helpful.

Awesome place.

We stayed in a private room with bathroom.
Service was excellent, as soon as we arrived all were helpful with tours and things to do around LA.
Room was near the main road so very noisy, air con also loud but overall room and clean and tidy. All we needed for a 2 night stay.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

I actually can't say a nice word about this place. The room smelt disgusting, the sheets weren't clean. Parking was ALWAYS an issue. The hot water only worked after running the water for literally 15 minutes. We asked for our room to be cleaned and all they did was take the towels out and only gave us 2 back (even though there was 4 of yes staying in the room). And the cleaner had the cheek to take the tip we left for them! When I complained about the cleaning, the guy shrugged and said there wasn't anything they could do. On day 2, after no sleep, we asked to change rooms as the road noise is unbearable and the "blinds" don't work, but were promptly told no. In the end 2 of us ended up paying to stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere or at the west hollywood one

Had a great 4 nights here, not far to walk and you're at the Chinese Theatre. Great hostel that provides events and nights out for everyone staying. Also helped us book our trip to Disneylan with their daily morning drop off to the coach station. Not the best breakfast you'll ever have but for what you pay I was suprised to be given food at all!

Room Tip: booked a private room

It's true what they say, you pay for location. Overall nice stay, friendly atmosphere, not easy to find staff unless you go reception, pushy with their events which I found annoying. Overall nice place to stay and sleep and good location with great access to public transport and major highways
