Make no mistake... this is NOT a hostel! 1) The West Adams district of L.A. is a crime-ridden, drug-infested ghetto, where every house has bars on the windows and the nearest bus stop is 2km away. 2) There are no lockers, and the bunk beds are crammed less than a meter between each other. 3) God knows what property you'll be placed in. The tiny house I stayed at had 22 beds and only one bathroom. 4) Forget about meeting tourists. Most everyone are actor wanna-be's or indigent locals.


I missed my flight from Berlin to LAX, so sadly, I'm unable to leave a cogent review. But I would like to think they are good people. This is why I'm forced to leave an "average" report, having no other idea of what to suggest.


The room that I was have just 2 beds with a bathroom, and all of my floor could use the bathroom. However, i didn't like the idea of all the floor use the bathroom, because i was with my friend in the room, and i thought that this bathroom it was just for us. I suggest to do a bathroom for the others rooms or make the bathroom of this room just for the room. Also, i didn't like the cleanliness of the bathroom, because we stayed for 5 days, and the bathroom wasn't cleaned any time.

I never received a key that worked for the front door while at the hostel. Several nights I was locked out of the building, and had to ask to be let in. The younger staff from other countries were great -- very nice, and accommodating. Some of the older staff seemed a bit curt with guests.

Nice mansion,relaxed,feels like at home,tv,pool,kitchen,close to metro/train station,great to stay in groups,atmosphere a bit boring for one traveler,of course it depends of currently residing guests.Staff not so attentive,also managing system with beds for guests disorderly,feels like you're part of the staff and they can move you to another room suddenly when they want to,there is no any cattle to prepare tea/coffee,which is strange..
