    Cool place worth visiting

    Los Angeles is a must visit place for anyone visiting the U.S. Some of the sight seeing is a little lame (the Hollywood sign is difficult to get close to for eg) and it is definitely more difficult without a car. However, the city is filled with extremely friendly people and is a great place to go out and have fun. It goes without saying the weather is amazing and overall I thoroughly enjoyed visiting.

    Insider Tip:Stay at Banana Bungalow in West Hollywood!

    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.

    I was in the Hollywood end of LA during this stay and was disappointed overall but runyan canyon made up for this as it was such an amazing place to hike each morning!
