I've stayed at many hostels all around the world, and I can say that this was one of the worst hostel experiences for me (and my friend).

When you stay at a hostel, lets face it, you don't pay for nice beach views and personalised name tages...you pay for somewhere to sleep with a clean bathroom. I surely didn't get this this time around!

When we arrived, the building and our room had an unwelcoming smell. Not sure if we we're just the unluckiest people who got the worst room?! But after our long flight and touring for half the day, I couldn't wait to have a shower. My friend had a shower first (lucky duck) which clogged up (as the shower was in the bath) and wouldn't filter down which meant I couldn't have a shower and refused to for the duration of our stay (ewwww). After crossing our fingers in the hope that the water would drain, we we're left with a bath filled with 'floaty bits' which I didn't even want to know what they were.

There was a sign in the bathroom that said if the toilet clogs up, to not flush and just use the plunger that was provided (not sure if it has ever been cleaned). It made me question our bed and the sheets! Everyone looks for different things when booking accommodation and I'm not at all the pretentious sort. We just came off a camping trip and as I quoted to my friend "I preferred sleeping in a wet tent on a log than here"

On the flip side, the location was quite reasonable and the staff weren't too bad, but I wouldn't stay here again! We stayed for two nights in total. Our Wifi didn't work in the bedroom, but in the common area it did - not a huge deal on the wifi.

Cute hostel, good location. In LA it's always better if you have a car! Only complaint is that the wifi didn't work in the room!!! :( you had to go down to the common area to use it. They had three computers that you could use which was nice and a little garden. They also had a couple of free BBQ nights which is great for who is travelling on a budget

Stayed here for 4 nights in a private room. Hostel is very clean and staff friendly.breakfast is basic (porridge and toast) but considering it's included in accommodation price we were happy with it. The hostel is nice and secure and we found the location fantastic. It is easy to explore west hollywood by foot from here or catch the bus. There is a whole foods grocery store nearby as well as the 24hr Canters diner. Would recommend if looking for budget accommodation near hollywood.

I stayed in a 16 share dorm room. The bed was very uncomfortable. On my second night I couldn’t sleep, so I went to the basement in the hope of getting some rest. When I got there, the air was filled with marijuana smoke which was very annoying.

Another annoyance was the small number of bathrooms. Each morning there was always a line, and everyone was very annoyed with this.

The hostel is located near Santa Monica Blvd, making it convenient for exploring West Hollywood. The hostel has free wi-fi, and the staff were friendly and welcoming during my stay.

Unfortunately I wouldn't stay here again though.

Room Tip: Choose a smaller room, not the 16 share dorm!
