Got yelled at by staff. Like full on actually yelled at. They told us breakfast was served at 6 and I had to leave for the airport at 6.20 however they didn't have breakfast yet. I asked the guy who was setting it up if maybe he could just grab me a bagel or something and he went off at me. He was humiliating and unnecessary and just unacceptable. Was also not impressed by the cleanliness since we were baking pancakes out of the Sam's pan for hours with batter that wasn't cooled. Tour was bad

We apologize that a member of our staff was not helpful to you. This is completely unacceptable to us and we think we've located who on staff was taking out their grumpiness on you and he has been disciplined. As for the pancake batter - it usually is meant to be used at room temperature. We store it in the fridge overnight and have to let it 'warm up' so it will pour correctly. If it too cold it just stays in the container. Our manager will be contacting you directly to discuss your experience.

First hostel visit ever in the states. I liked it a lot. Staff could have told us that there were extra bathrooms and not only the ones in the room. Other than that I was happy with my stay.

All pub crows around de world are free, in this hostel we have to pay 15 dolars, does no make sense... But in general, this hostel is good.

Owner Comment (Hide)
There is a charge for the pub crawl because many places in Hollywood charge cover or make you wait in line. We get preferred treatment as a group and this fees helps with that.

The Hollywood boulevard is a little bit sketchy but we were ok. There is a parking lot across the street, we paid 50$ for 3 night. Hostel has all equipped kitchen, ensuite room was really nice. According to my reservation i remembered that the tax was included in the room price but when we checked in. It was not :( Also the receptions in european hostels are a bit more friendlier.

Compared with other hostels, the breakfast is not that good.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We're sorry you didn't like our breakfast. Our research has shown that we offer quite a bit more than other Los Angeles hostels with our variety of bakeries, all you can make pancakes, oatmeal, fresh fruit, fruit juices and coffee/tea, but we'd love to learn what more is being served elsewhere. We will contact you directly to follow up.

I love this hostel, I met a lot of people there... The rooms are pretty comfortable... Great security... The staff is not as friendly as the hostel, but you can handle with that.... They have a shuttle service from Hostel to LAX for 16 USD... I'll stay here again on my next LA visit.

The excellent breakfast gets you started. Plenty of entertaining activities while indoors. Central location is PERFECT for exploring L.A. (Not just the tourist attractions but the REAL Los Angeles.) SAFE...Frequent law enforcemt patrols & close proximity of police station, the Security team keep the large homeless population at bay & brazen panhandlers in check. Front desk personnel are either VERY friendly or VERY unfriendly. LA is known for 100 degree days but there is no air conditioning

Thanks for the insightful feedback. We are glad you enjoyed breakfast and our location but are concerned about the staff you mentioned. We'll write to you separately about that. Regarding the weather, this part of LA very infrequently sees days of more than 85 degrees with typically cool nights requiring a light jacket or sweater. It's more inland in 'the valley' where the temps are high. however, the recent heatwave did tax our cooling system a bit.

The USA hostel in Hollywood is not as good as their one in San Fran. Excellent location, good staff, but no real indoor area conducive to hanging around and meeting people (tv is always on). There is an outdoor area but this gets way too hot. The rooms at night also get pretty stuffy. Good wifi, decent kitchen & free continental breakfast provided. Also a great pub crawl put on by the hostel and the area is fantastic for the night life! The night shift worker needs to calm down slightly.

Some of the staff proved to be unhappy and unreasonable at times.

글쎄요... 여러가지 행사를 많이하는건 좋은것 같아요. 무료투어 행사도 진행하고.. 근데 전체적으로 시간도 안지키고... 너무 늦게까지 술마시는 사람이 많은데다 시끄러움

You're awesome for saying we're awesome!

The Hostel was ok but the area was really bad. It's very close by to the walk of fame but this is it! Nothing to do in this area! It's 1,5 hours away from the beach and the nice areas!

Owner Comment (Hide)
We regret that you gave our hostel such low ratings because you did not think there was anything to do in the area. We would have been happy to help you plan your days. You could have taken our free shuttle to the beach (which takes 45 minutes), or you could go to Universal Studios (only 1 subway stop away) or taken our Beverly Hills walking tour or gone shopping (vintage to upscale nearby) or gone club hopping (right around the corner). We also take guests to Magic Mountain (about 50 minutes).

If you wanna have fun in LA, this is the hostel that you are looking for! Excellent atmosphere. The staff is super nice and very organized. Normally I don't like Pub Crawl kinda parties but the one that they offer was so much fun. Their branch in San Francisco was also awesome. These guys really know how to run a hostel. Do not even hesitate a sec to book them, go head!!
