The neighbourhood is not so nice, feels a little unsafe if you go out in the evening. It's close to the airport and they have a shuttle bus, but when my friend arrived one day later, it was really hard to pick her up from the airport. She waited there for 2,5 hours, and I went 3 times to the front desk to ask if they could pick her up. Really weird. The staff had an attitude, they weren't helpfull at all and they were rude! The 8 pers dorms are okay, facilities are ok as well.


Good for one night...very close to the Airport, the shuttle service is the highest point,,,the neigborwood the lowest

The hostel is located really close to the airport, and they offer a free shuttle to the airport, which is super useful. In general they offer many free services, such as champagne at night, muffin for breakfast.. But when I stayed there the most basic things were missing: no Wifi (in the evening and still in the morning), no free map, and unfortunately the staff did not really have the situation under control.


The receptionist is dge and rude, there are a lot of strangers.

No a great hostel at all. Rooms are very very crowded, beds are ununcomfortable and it is a very old and crappy place. I stayed here for about 10 hours and that was enough for me. only thing going for this place is that it is close to the airport and has a free shuttle (to and from the airport). Also the staff weren't very helpful and seemed to busy to help.


Cheerful atmosphere,nice for socialize,heated pool,restaurant,bar,many free tours and facilities,location not so good,but there is free shuttle to bus/metro stations and LAX airport(you must have phone to ring them for pick up)If you stay in dormitory,put your valuables to locker,even at night.


Its good for shutltle bus for airport. But I don't know why I paid more than the origanal fee on website.

It was offputting at the entrance. Bar, cigarette smoke, trash along street where it was located, but it turned out to be a really good place. I am staying there again in two weeks.

I spend only 1 night there. Everything was okay. Staff wasn't very helpful but still good place to stay. Plus free shuttle to and from the airport


This hostel has a lot of things going for them - great prices and tons of amenities, most of which are free. The free airport shuttle is awesome and I loved how close this was to LAX and my main reason for booking it. If you want a Hollywood experience, I would probably recommend staying somewhere closer to Hollywood Blvd, but they do offer a lot of trips into town and have a good nightlife. Only issue is that the staff were not friendly or helpful.


One guy that works their was very racesest and tryed kicking me out apart from him the tiki bar staff outstanding and made my stay a lot better than any of the othe staff
