Absolutely loved staying at this hostel! Right in the heart of West Hollywood, just a stones throw away from the Farmer's Market and a short uber ride away from the strip. Great vibes and the staff (Niall!) were very kind and accommodating. A lot of hostels I've stayed in are very business orientated and were mainly concerned with giving us a bed for a couple of nights. This hostel, however, made sure that everyone felt right at home and made sure that we were all having a good time!

Was a really fun hostel the staff was really cool and they had tons of cool activities for people to do. They were a bit expensive because they were a bit far from places to see. But I had a good time.


Awesome hostel


Really good atmosphere! Always something to do or get in involved with at this hostel. Young vibrant staff. Very pleasant stay! Would deff come back!


Very nice hostel overall. Staff is friendly and James is a legend. There is a lot of activities. However, there was an error with management and there was a traveller who was sent to the wrong room, this resulted in myself being rudely awoken at 5 am by two drunk guests claiming that i was in one of their beds - as the numbers didn't add up. management took no responsibility for this and refused to compensate me for the error, which is pretty weak considering how expensive it is to stay here.


great hostel to stay at, lots of good events and some cool people to meet too. price is par for hollywood, hostel was lovely and clean with helpful staff and great kitchen facilities, loads of fridge space and cookers etc. breakfast was good, cereal, fruit, bread etc. can walk to places but lots of buses nearby. enjoyed stay so much that I decided to come rebook for the last few days of my usa travelling.


Front desk workers were so helpful and nice! The location is great and everything was clean, it was great!


The hostel was good, but my co-travelers and I especially appreciated the hostel activities. If you want to see the city and its fancy neighborhoods, we absolutely recommend the tour with Armani aka Jesus. Thanks to Armani aka Jesus, we even had the chance to meet Justin Bieber. And if you want to party in Hollywood, the hostel has some great stuff to offer, too. Jesus, if you read this: contact Angie. Codeword "I believe I can fly" ;) We would stay at this hostel again anytime. TheGermanGirls


Great tikki bar


Had the best time during my travels mostly thanks to Elena the Italian receptionist, she is the most helpful, charming, sweetest person I ever met! She made me feel like home, always smile and have amazing positive energy!
