  • Breakfast was served every day, the beds were very clean, the sheets were included in the price, Wi-Fi was available, there was plenty of hot water for showering, there were a reasonable number of beds in each room (6-8 on average), and there was car parking on-site. Really, this is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Right up there with The Flying Pig in Amsterdam. I highly recommend this place!!

  • The + : the free shuttle service (but it's usually late), the cleanliness, the parkings, the breakfast (cereals, toasts, fruits), the activities. The - : the location is okay between the hostel and the Vine subway station, but after that (before the touristic part of Hollywood boulevard), it gets creepy (men looking at my boobs, harassing me, even one screaming in my hear). Overall, it's a good hostel because of the price. It's less expensive than most Los Angeles' hostels.

  • Very good location. This hostel is located at Hollywood Blvd and you can see the Hollywood sign from there. People are awesome from everywhere. There are a lot of parties that are provided by the hostel with free drinks and food. They are amazing.

  • Very loud, party hostel, good luck getting to sleep before 1:00 am. The guy on the front desk isn't suited to accommodating people and seems like he thought his job gave him superiority over others. Wine tasting activity should just be called "wine drinking". Go there if you want to get wasted. The bed was old and uncomfortable, the sheets are torn and tattered . It is very safe and it could be nice, each room has its own kitchen, bathroom and TV.

  • A good place to stay if you can't afford to stay in West Hollywood as basically everything is a walk away. It is a little bit in the dodgy area but there are always heaps people around. We definitely didn't need anymore than 2 nights there.
