I just stayed here one night to get to the airport. The staff weren't very friendly - but place was alright to stay for one night.


1 - I am overcharged! 2 - Place is so loud even in the night time! 3 - Worst location in LA! 4 - Staff has unhappy face! 5- Wifi is extreme slow! Never book more than 1 day if your first time here. Give a couple of bucks and find a better place to stay!


My bed was ready at 5pm, even though check out is 12pm. I think there wasn't a system in place for the cleaning staff to know which bed needed cleaning. Aside from this, I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The free shuttle to and from the airport was very convenient, and the staff were very helpful.


The only issue I had was the lack of security within the dorm rooms, so I slept with my wallet, phone, etc. Otherwise, the free pickup and dropoff from the airport is in a "party bus" and very much appreciated. I spent only one night and left too early for breakfast, but checkin was relatively quick, as was checkout.


Front desk staff dont address you even though your clearly lining up, until you approach them first. They are pretty unorganized, I notice they treat guests differently. I didn't get a WiFi code for my dorm or champagne slips, but I was only staying one night. The room itself was pretty decent but there were ants around the sink

The attention of the receptionists was disagreeable and the security was really poor, any person could get inside in the common areas.

It is exactly how it sounds. My 2 sisters and i stayed for 2 nights with no real trouble. We did overhear another guest had a problem with cockroaches but we were on the second floor with no pests to be seen. Staff was as friendly as they could be (it seemed like they were very short staffed with lots of issues). They we helpful when we needed extra towels and tp. Loud airplanes but they had a pool and served free coffee in the morning. Overall, for $10 a night, good stay!

This place was actually better than I expected after reading the reviews. I just needed a place to crash between a long layover of planes, and it served that purpose. I would not stay there as a visitor to the City of Angels otherwise.


That sucks. It was the worst hostel where I've ever stayed. Although I booked this hostel and got the confirmation of reservation for sure, the staff said it was too late to come, so it was automatically canceled. Wtf. What I did finally was sleeping on the floor. I could see many backpackers getting into the same troubles...


WARNING: This is NOT a hostel! This is a run-down motel which was converted into "hostel" by cramming as many bunk beds as possible into tiny rooms. This "hostel" is located in one of the worst parts of L.A., and my friends at LAPD tell me the Inglewood Police are there at least three times every week, usually over fights, drugs, and the occassional hooker. The staff is not merely rude; they are outright abusive. The only way to eat food is at their over-priced restaurant. I beg you do NOT visit


the people in front desk are very rude


no curtain no door no nothing between sleeping room and bathroom/showers? else than that it was ok!
