    Power outlet inside the locker!

    Walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Mann's Chinese Theatre, In-Out Burger and tons of shops like and a department store. Overall a nice, clean place for a short stay.

    Insider Tip:I stayed 8-bed female dorm. It had one toilet and shower room which was weird since everyone will know when you are pooping/taking a shower. I did love the fact that there's a charger in your bed, with a night light. And you're not disturbing anyone because it's behind this wall near your bed. The selling point is really the charger inside the locker. You can go eat somewhere and have your phone/iPad charged when you get back without worrying someone's going to steal it.

    Los Angeles - A dying city

    Los Angeles felt like it was dying. Hollywood was less impressive than expected (I wasn't expecting much to begin with), it was tacky, touristy (which you can sort of expect) but just lacks any charm or personality. It felt like the worse that America had to offer, seen as such a cash cow - not a point of pride. The nicest area of LA to stay in would be Santa Monica. It is cleaner and has a better atmosphere. Still, I'd advice heading to San Diego and San Francisco if you have the time.

    Insider Tip:Minimize your time here, do what you have planned but don't lull around.

    Dissapointing

    Los Angeles is dissapointing if you expect a glamorous city. Hollywood is really run down. If you are plannning a west coast trip, don't spent more than a day there. The walk of fame is just boring and don't do a sightseeing tour. There is nothing to see.

    Insider Tip:Warner bros. studio tour was great, but do it on a weekend. Otherwise they might be filming at all the interesting sets. The Griffith observatory is really nice to. The tickets for the planetarium are just 5$. Really affordable.

USA: Itinerary

Glitz, glamour and stars galore – you can find it all in the City of Angles. Walk down Rodeo Drive or Hollywood Boulevard and you might be lucky enough to bump into one of your idols! Set aside a few days to explore the Californian capital and you may also be lucky enough to unveil a whole lot more.
