Please be aware that there will be a $ 5 credit card surcharge. The hostel claims that the price presented on hostelworld is the cash price, but that is not beeing mentioned anywhere. The hostel has good facilities, but still has a slight school atmosphere. There will also be a credit card inprint at check in, in case you damage any property, like they do in real hotels. There are 2 bus lines outside the hostel, though you have to change to get to most places, execpt Hollywood Boulevard.

Staff was less than helpful and security was just rude. No one enjoys their job and it shows

My stay was great. No complaints, they made everything easy. Some nights i stayed out til 4-5am and there was usually someone at the door keeping watch. Wherever i just hung out at the hostel all day there was always plenty to do if nothing else shooting pool. Great location, plenty of things to do or see within a 10 min walk. A few sketchy characters about at night, but nothing you haven't seen before I'm sure.

I had a fun time here. The staff were helpful but depending who you got you felt like you were annoying them by asking what bus to catch... The place was very clean and very easy to settle in. I would stay here again for sure.

Not in a great location at all... Near nothing! And not particularly keen either! Don't confuse it with their downtown hostel.. Same name and a totally different location!!

It is a good hostel, but not excellent. Have a good staff, location and atmosphere. Moreover, offers some great activities to do. The rooms are in good size. Some issues bother, like you cant stay in common areas after midnight (even if u are just using the wifi) ou the breakfast, that is too bad. I always needed to find a decent breakfast in a close place.
