Love that there are individual kitchens and bathrooms per room. Excellent activities and great location just 5 mins from the walk of fame, easy access to hiking to the Hollywood sign and staff were very helpful and friendly.


Great place to stay. The atmosphere is great and the staff very friendly. Location is also great, within walking distance from the dolby theatre and the famous Hollywood sign.


This is my favorite hostel by far. Very cool vibes as well as kitchen inside dorm rooms. Great location and entertainment during the week. I highly recommend staying here!


It's an old motel converted into a hostel. There is a kitchen and bathroom in each hostel room which made the space very crammed, too many bunks in a tiny room! Also, the kitchen wasn't best equipped, however, they offer daily free breakfast and cheap dinners on many of the nights so you don't necessarily need to cook. They organise lots of day tours and nights out, great party hostel for young people (they stop loud music at midnight so not too bad if you are interested in sleeping either)!


The hostel itself is clean and secure. We had the bad luck to be in a room with the dirtiest girl I have seen. The bathroom was disgusting. We went to the office to change room, but the hostel was full. Plus, there was no more bedsheet available this night. It is a party hostel, so if you don't want any noise, choose another place. It's located 10 minutes away from the subway station, in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard.


all but one member of the staff ( i would name him if i knew what it was) were so much more interested in their own problems/ stuff didn't seem to want to help when required The fact that the main communal area was also the carpark and the only place you could smoke made it difficult to enjoy the stuff the hostel had to offer. the large rooms were good but the beds were still jammed together the only good thing i can see about this hostel was the fact it was so close to the walk of fame etc.

Staff are friendly and the hostel is located within short walking distance to most of the sites in Hollywood. My only complaint for this hostel is the noise level. Although I was staying in LA on a Friday night, the party went on in the center courtyard until the early hours of the morning with music blaring and bass pumping. Great pick depending on your reasons for passing through LA; for me it didnt entirely match up.


A good hostel that becomes a sort of night club on weekends so a great party hostel if you're into that. free booze on weekends too!
