Great location in Hollywood, 5 minute walk to walk of fame. Day staff were nice but night staff were rude and condescending. Kitchen in the morning was always too busy so we skipped the free bfast, personally I think a continental bfast wld work better. Also you can hear your neighbors a lot in your room so it can be a bit noisy at night. Laundry system is strange, you have to pay reception and then they show you where the washer is but there is only 1 so we had to wait to use it.

Bed was small for a private double room. Their parking costed 5 dollars per day. There was noise during the day (some carpentary), but it was ok. Lovelly old woman talked to us when we were leaving. It is on the same block of Walk Of Fame, Dolby Theatre, El Captain and others: so it is good, will save you some time. They give waffle for breakfast, but it is DIY scheme. It was taking too long for people to make theirs, so we went to a starbucks nearby. No deal-breakers. No air-con or fans.

Quiet location close to bustling Hollywood Boulevard. Staff are pleasant and helpfu, rooms clean but kitchen and dining space is small and cramped. But I guess everyone dines out when visiting Hollywood and the nearby diners and Hamburoger places are worth a visit.

Great for exploring Hollywood and nearby areas. We had a car so the location was not that important to us. The hostel itself is set in a beautiful house with a lovely, very clean kitchen with free tea and coffee. We had a private room at the top of the house, with plenty of space and a view of the front yard. As far as I could see there was no airconditioner so it might get a bit hot in summer. I'd definitely come back when in LA next.

Great hostel! We got a two person private room that was very charming. The bathrooms were impressively clean. The staff was always available. The hostel location is within walking distance of Hollywood blvd while the street itself being pretty quiet.

perfect location for travelers who don't wish to drive! you really don't need a car to explore L/A, the metro is only 10 mins walk from the hostel door. The bonus is the Hollywood Blvd, all the major attractions are only 2 blocks away, the suvinior stores open till 12am! You can take the Hollywood sign picture on the upper level of the mall near by. I will def return to this hostel.

Lovely hostel with amazing staff, beautiful and clean and great location but unfortunately lacking in atmosphere!

Location is good in regards to the metro, Chinese theatre and going to see Jimmy Kimmel live etc however at night it can feel a little unsafe and intimidating. Staff also informed us we could get a bus to the airport for $8 at the corner of Hollywood and Vine however failed to mention it only ran every hour so we missed it and had to get a $70 taxi to the airport which was very stressful. However staff were very friendly and helpful!

Great place to stay. So close to all the action but felt so far away. Very quiet, clean and safe. Staff were very nice and helpful. Definitely recommend staying here if you are a busy traveller that spends most time out and about.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful Hostel. The building was erected in the 1920th and so everything is a little bit old fashioned but charming and clean. We loved to sit outside at the patio for breakfast (pancakes/waffles are included, also coffee/tee and cereals but no milk :/) and dinner. When you leave the hostel and turn left you already can see the Hollywood Blvd and the Chinese Theatre. The staff was always friendly and tried to help us with all our questions. We definitely recommend

The location is great, but others are so so.

Perfect location if you're going to a show at the Hollywood Bowl, hiking to the Griffith Observatory, or hanging out on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! We had a rental car, so the $5 daily parking behind the hostel was extremely helpful. Facilities were clean and the free waffle breakfast was delicious! Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 6 days had a great time. People were friendly and had a nice vibe to the hostel. In a great spot so easy to wander around hollywood blvd etc. It did get really hot @ night but thats the only bad thing. And kitchens really small so didnt try and cook. But fresh and easy is close and loads of places to eat. Staff where very friendly. I would stay again. Really good hostel with good tradition. Thanks Guys enjoyed LA much more this time around.

The room is too stuffy!! Install fans of something!!


97%

Excellent place and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Always go out of their way to give you more info. Only complaints would be the heat as there are no aircon or even fans in the rooms which makes sleeping quite difficult. Location is excellent though and everything else makes up for the lack of aircon!

Such a lovely hostel!! Location was awesome and staffs are friendly :) They have free breakfast service in the morning. You can make waffles or pancakes there..It depends but you might better go eat earlier (like 6 or 7) if you don't want to eat in a crowded kitchen. Landry costs $5 everytime which might be a little bit expensive but others are awesome for me!! I would definitely love to stay here again!!

A lovely place to stay. Nice and peaceful in the madness of Hollywood and really lovely staff. Nothing fancy, so don´t come with really high expectations but it is definitely a nice place to stay in LA.
