  • Only issue I had was that there was no air conditioning. Los Angeles was experiencing a heat wave at the time. Staff were friendly and helpful but you did have to share the bathroom.

  • Great hostel. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was small but cute and clean. The hostel is really nice and the location is perfect! Also, nice free breakfast :)

  • The hostel is located right in the middle of Hollywood, which is great if you are traveling on foot, but problematic if you re driving. It has a small parking lot though, which was very helpful. The hostel itself is a very old house that is in desperate need of repair. All facilities are old and rooms lack any type of air conditioning or ventilation. The common area is ok with free breakfast being a big plus

  • The best place to stay in LA! We steped off the bus and found us in the heart of LA..two steps and you have the hostel nestled quietly just behind the Chinese theatre. The atmosphere is well suited for some rest after an ideal day. The ladies at the reception were extremely helpful. One of my best hostel experiences.

  • Nice hostel, friendly staff, great location, good parking and quiet yet super central location. I missed a shelf in the bathroom and the room we had smellt if you kept the windows closed, but if you left the open during the day it was really hot. Space in kitchen sitting area is small.

  • Perfect location (2 minutes walk of the Hollywood Walk of Fame), the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is a little bit small but at least we can eat outside. Our room was very big with a private bathroom. I definitely recommand this hostel.

  • Hard to climb at the top bed (in dorms), no places to sit in the dorms - only 1 chair for 6 persons.

  • Great place to stay if you want a central but quiet location. The staff were lovely and the house has a lot of character to it, which I liked. The only thing that I didn't like that much was that there are only pancakes or waffles for breakfast.However there are fridges if you want to buy things and are staying for a longer time. If you are looking for a place that organises a lot of activities, like pub crawls etc this is probably the wrong one.

  • The hostel was very clean in an excellent location and the staff were very friendly. It was very quiet in the hostel and I barely saw anyone else. The kitchen was small but kept to a high standard. My only issues were that there were no signs to the kitchen and it was hard to find. Also there were only two electrical outlets in a room for six people which became a slight issue! Overall a very friendly, clean place and the front doors were always locked making it very safe and secure!
