Location was a bit sketchy but not that big a deal. Facilities were great - plenty of gathering space and available activities. Breakfast offerings were basic. Staff seemed detached and somewhat bothered and weren't enthusiastically suggestive of things to do.

They offer free activities every night. They even had free unlimited beer one night. I'd say you really get your money's worth. Nice location even if it is a bit far from most attractions.

This is a pretty solid hostel, good WiFi, kitchen, outdoor areas, ping pong, pool, TV in the rooms, lockers, individual showers, good beds and organised activities every night. Could be cheaper, but hey it's America and you get what you pay for. You'll be happy here.

I would stay here again. Staff was helpful, desktop internet/computer and local calling was also helpful. I wish I had taken advantage of the shuttle parties to the west Hollywood bungalow. Nightly activities were fun and made it easy to meet others. Don't forget to cook up a storm in their more than adequate kitchen. Lockers in dorms were a nice touch. Used the 780, 217 and 218 buses, plus the bus on Melrose for downtown access. Great restaurants in the area including Canter's, AEK Ramen, etc.

Beyond all expectations. They underplay how good it is as a hostel option, or even just a general option for staying a while in LA.

Great location. Staff is nice, but a bit unprofessional. The hostel smells bad. The breakfast is plain. Over all a good place to spend a couple of nights.
