great location


The only good thingl is the central location! But cleanliness (especially in kitchen and bathroom) was horrible, because the lazy staff does not feel responsible for anything and that's why they NEVER clean the rooms. Breakfast doesn't exist! Moreover the atmosphere is pretty strange because 90% of the other "guests" (or residents?!) are 24/7 completly wasted (alcohol + weed) and make enormous noise. Would absolutely not recommend this hostel!!! Only for sb with very very low expectations!


great showers single room great staff a bit lazy well located near little italy but close to the plane path and freeway


Really bad atmosphere, dark inside, old furniture, bedrooms are very small and the cleanliness is very poor! Its also smelly! I payed for 3 nights but only stayed for 1! I ran out there early in the morning! I'd lost money but I couldn't stay there anymore! DO NOT STAY THERE!

First of all we found the hostel door closed and we have to wait a guest to open the door for us (we arrived around 7pm); the breakfast in the morning was ready 20 minutes after schedule and there were only coffee and bananas. The bathrooms were clean and the shower (even if there was only one) was very good.
