Our room was super dirty and gross, we had an infestation of ants, all over the cutlery and inside the drawers in the kitchen. The staff came to try and sort it out but there were still small ants crawling everywhere, so needless to say we didn't cook in the kitchen as they were fully booked and unable to move us to another room. The staff weren't super helpful but they were OK. There was very loud music playing late at night right next to all the rooms, ( till between 11 and midnight).


We're very very satisfied.

The location was good and the staff was okay. But, in our room there were ants crawling around (probably because of the kitchen and the poor cleaning from the hostel/guests), the shower was always dripping, poor breakfast (just some white bread and cereal) and awful parking space. We booked the hostel for its free parking, but one night it was full and we had to find a parkingspot without help from the staff and then pay and park a few blocks from the hostel. We won't stay here next time in LA.

Unfortunately, we had to stay there two times. First time we got a dirtiest room ever with not enough free beds, so I had to sleep with my husband in the same bed although we paid for two beds :( We also got a 8 bed instead of a 6 bed room. And the people there were weird. The second time it was much better, only there were bugs in bathroom and in the kitchen :( Did not like it.


very nice hostel! I enjoyed very much.


The stay was going great until the third day when we found a cockroach in the room. There were also ants all over the beds. Maybe if the hostel didn't have kitchens in the rooms this wouldn't be a problem. The staff were friendly about it but seemed nonchalant. They refunded us for the next night which we were due to stay and we left a day early.


Stayed there for the 2nd time and it's been great! The location is perfect and the staff is really cool! Always had much fun during taco and karaoke night!!! They offer day trips and lots of fun times, they're really helpful and if I ever go back to LA, I'll definitely stay ther again. They also offer breakfast and a parking space... The location on Hollywood Blvd is perfect! Thanks!
