I felt insecure in your hostel. I won't recommend it. Pple are not travelers they're staying on the long run, this is no hostel. The way the rooms are displayed is really bad. Pple are forced to go through other rooms to access theirs or facilities. It's bothersome and feels insecure. Lockers in other people's rooms is more than deplorable too. On top of that, there is a bunk bed in the kitchen and only 1 bathroom! Show more respect for your guests. Plus you "scammed" me 60$, consciously or not.

It was the worst hostel I have ever been, everything was looking unclean and it has a really bad atmosphere! The first advise that the owner gave to us was how to react if the police approach us and that we shouldn't go out with a knife but use a bottle instead in case of trouble... lol Also the owner's wife was insulting us for no reason, I guess she didn't like the fact that we were from Brazil. We paid but we didn't stay there, we left without asking for our money back.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at our hostel. We find it funny that you evaluated our hostel, without actually staying at the hostel. The co-owner did not insult you to begin with, especially for being a certain nationality. She was bothered that you showed up after closing hours, at 11 pm, when your booking states ETA at 8 pm. Our office hours are until 10 pm. It was a little inconsiderate of you to show up so late. We took you in regardless.


If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep for the night in Hollywood area, you have found it. However, if you are looking for more than that I would Not recommend you to bother to book this hostel. Make sure you are arrived ON TIME. I meant ON TIME. Otherwise the owner would sell your bed to others without notice you. these Ukrainian couples could be very mean and showing bad attitudes toward travelers/guests. And you will not meet other travelers as most of people are long-time residence.


The managers were very nice and the hosts also!


Nice cozy place. There were no travellers there though. Just locals that were on long term stays. Anyway, a nice chill atmosphere with friendly people all around. Really enjoyed the stay. The neighborhood itself isn't too great and I wouldn't advise going around too late into the night. The metro station is fairly close (10-15min walk) and it's near hollywood so if you wanna tour there it's a good place to stay. Would recommend to others wanting affordable accomodation.

I'll be honest, the only issue is the location. However, this problem is from the city. LA nothing is close, if you rent a car OK, you can find any place just to sleep. Otherwise, if you want to use a public transportation or bike, find a place close to Santa Monica or Tourist places.


Nice and pleasant stay. Good location friendly staff


Nice enough place, more of a long term dorm feel to it. Lots of pot being smoked. People were okay, though.


Convenient location. Walkable to Metro Station and laundromat. Thousands of TV channels plus satellite radio in every room. Cleaned every afternoon.
