  • Nice place. There are quite a few hostel activities. If you are not into those kind of things like me, it will still be fine since people are generally nice and don't bother you. The location is pretty decent, it's on the Hollywood Blvd, within walking distance of the Hollywood / Vine station.

  • Very clean with a friendly staff .They provided cheap meals and great local experiences for out of towners. It's set up to for us to mingle and make friends and walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I'd stay again.

  • It's located in quite nice place and very clean. You can have breakfast for free I recommend you to stay here. But, you may have trouble sleeping at night because it's noisy.

  • We stayed here for two nights and what an amazing two nights we had. The atmosphere, facilities and events planned by the hostel we're amazing. The staff we're extremely helpful and friendly, especially JP Payne who hosted the amazing Karaoke and brought us to a bar nearby afterwards and ensured everyone in the group stuck together and mingled with everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Los Angeles/

  • Good value for money place, good location, nice environment. However, staff seemed a bit distant,they didn't have the natural friendliness of the best hostels. Not sure what the deal was with breakfast -- maybe I missed it from sleeping in. Could do with more thorough information/instructions on arrival. Free Wifi was good. Wasn't incredibly clean; e.g. sticky stuff next to my bed, bathroom was a bit gross, etc. Could do with some larger lockers e.g. for storing laptop.

  • It was very clean, the staff was nice, flexible, and totally welcoming. There were real fun activities throughout the week that were enjoyable, well-planned, and nicely displayed on a board outside office. I heard about parking problems, drove a car, and couldn't be more satisfied. I was able to park my car right in the secure compound.
