  • Whoever said that the hostel was in a great location was either from a war torn country or associated with the management. This place was deep in the ghetto, the one dr. Dre reps in any of his songs. That though, may have been my fault for not paying attention to where it was. What I wouldn't have known was the fact that the management was terrible. They were rude and wouldn't let me use the trip insurance I paid for. They hung up on me and my friend numerous times. Bottom line, DO NOT STAY HERE

  • Best is to book online where you can explicitly specify what room you want. I had to stay an extra night, and I made a reservation at their desk for a mixed dorm, and they took advantage of that to book me their priciest mixed dorm without even asking what I want. I knew full well that their cheaper mixed dorm had beds available because I was living there at that time.

  • This place is virtually only and ONLY good for a bed for the night and free airport transfer. We stayed because of an early flight from lax so we have no huge reason for great expectation. In saying that, the staff is absolutely atrocious with no sense of courtesy or infliction to their voice whatsoever and they barely looked at us whilst talking. The prices aren't worth the bed you pay for unless you like springs. Toilet was broken. Drivers of transfer were rude and dangerous. This place sucks
