Most of the time there was no hot water in the showers. There are also only 4 showers in the women bathroom and one was clogged most of our stay. Breakfast was really poor, just "make it yourself" pancakes. Staff was not very helpfull.

Every time you need to lock your locker you have to insert 25 cents in it!! They should describe it better in the amenities section!! The hostel was good in general. Good and worth laundry. I would advise that you take the 4-bed room, the 6-bed room are kinda packed and smelly when the window is not open! The showers are any good on cold days....taking a shower is almost impossible! Plan your trip well, if you are going on cold days! The location is awesome.

The hostel is located in the very downtown of Hollywood and just across the street you can take the subway to downtown Los Angeles. You can also take the bus in the sunset Blv. to Getty Center which I truly recommended. The staff is nice and answered my question patiently. There is no independent bathroom in the dorm and there are public bathroom and restroom in every floor. The facilities here especially the bathroom is so-so. In terms of the price, the hostel worth it regarding the location.

The locker were to be paid which I didn't appreciate. The access to wifi is not available in the rooms. However, the location is more than excellent.

Hot water in the showers is very limited. Female showers/restroom at the top floor and male showers/restroom at the lower floor which makes it a bit inconvenient if you're staying on a floor that's not your gender-designated showers/restrooms.

It is really a good location and very close with most of the famous place and very close to the metro station.

When 5 friends and I visited this hostel on the first date, we were already so tired and wanted to check in as soon as possible. One of the male staff kept talking to us about how well he knew our cultural backgrounds while delaying our check-in process. We were waiting for him for a long time. He just did things slowly and had no idea where our reservation was recorded in the computer system. Whenever we had questions he just could not stop his job at hand and handled our problems first.

The hostel is located right across Dolby Theater and in the middle of Walk of Fame, which brings me to the conclusion that it was definetly value for money. Right across the road was the Metro Station Hollywood/ Highland, which made it really easy to get around LA, if you're not renting a car. The facilities was average, though the Wifi connection was a little poor (didn't reach to all the rooms) and there was way too little restrooms. Staff was okay, but lacked understanding the guest's mood.

Beds were very uncomfortable and there were no lockers to accommodate suitcases only small belongings and they charged every time you used them.

The outside of the hostel is terrible, but when you get in you feel more comfortable with your choice. Location couldn't be better. I stayed here during fall, but in summer I think would be extremely hot inside the rooms.

Location is great as it's right on hollywood's walk of fame. Rooms were decent and we were lucky we were on the other side of the main street so wasn't as noisy. There is a huge stair case when you enter which I struggled with my suitcase but other then that the place was fine. You also get free pancakes for breakfast, you just have to cook it yourself.

We had a blast! It is perfect located and the staff was very nice and friendly! It is clean and organized. However, the wifi didn't work very well. In spite of that, we had a wonderful time.

If you want to be right in Hollywood this is good but...stay upstairs or on in the rooms that aren't on the side of the road, trying to sleep next to Hollywood's busiest intersection isn't going to happen, the manager is a inappropriate just so you know but the other staff are nice tho, the WiFi was always cutting out , especially upstairs. the beds are fine and the showers/toilets were always clean
