The staff were very helpful with recommending places for me to visit. I had a great time and will consider staying here next time I go on a trip in California!

Location great & activities provided by the hostel on a budget were a bonus. The 2 that I went on were with staff who had knowledge of the area and enthusiasm! However, at reception the staff were hit and miss. Generally you had to wait for them to finish their conversation before they acknowledged you. The additional shower (though there is no block, just the odd one) was really dirty and uninviting. The rooms were OK but 6 girls & 1 shower means an additional shower block is necessary!

AMAZING HOSTEL. So clean. Very safe. The staff was incredible too. Highly recommend this place! A bit expensive for a hostel, but you definitely get what you pay for.

It was my first time travelling on my own and this hostel has a nice outdoor area, where you can hang out and meet people. Beside that there is a lot of social activities. The rooms are clean, the staff friendly, delicious breakfast. Perfect!

A very social, safe and fun hostel. Its so close to everything in Hollywood, and the staff have great advice to negotiate public transport etc to get around LA. My only regret I wish I stayed longer! I loved the idea for all the walking groups, night dinners and I loved how social this place was. The rooms are really spacious and I love the fact you have your own powerpoint and light in your bed. Highly recommend this place

More expensive than other hostels I've stayed at, but good overall!! There were lots of organised activities like $6 all you can eat barbeque and tours and things, great outdoor space and good atmosphere! Also beds are good with a light, shelf, and powerpoint for each bunk, and lockers in the rooms too.

thanks for the feedback. We are a bit more than other area hostels but we do think we try to make those dollars pay off with lots of free activities and our breakfast with all you can make pancakes, bakeries, juice, oatmeal, coffee, tea and fresh fruit. We've also just completed a patio renovation with lots of comfy furniture for sunning and relaxing. We hope you'll come back again!

Excellent stay, my favourite hostel in the States. Great atmosphere, easy to meet people and have a good night. Lots of activities during the day and the staff are very helpful. Very secure and in a really good location being so close to Hollywood. Would happily stay here again, thanks for a good stay.

Great hostel in a great location. Regular activities organised and a decent breakfast. Staff were always cheerful and up for a chat. Only problem we had was our dorm shower wouldn't drain properly so showers had to be quick and we would have to wait a while for the next person. Will definitely stay again.

Owner Comment (Hide)
oh yuk! we don't want our guests standing in shower water! we'll look up your room number and get that drain fixed pronto...you'd be surprised some of the stuff we find in the drains - maybe we'll get lucky again and find another watch! thanks for the compliments and we're glad you want to stay with us again. happy travels!

Great location if you want to see Hollywood and other central sites. Quite a noisy gruby area but that's Hollywood I guess! No complaints about the hostel. Breakfast was great!

Not that there's much to do to fix it, but EVERY SOUND: footsteps doors whispers in halls or courtyard EVERY SOUND carries into the rooms and makes it almost impossible to fall or stay asleep, EVEN WITH EARPLUGS. I've stayed in HI and other hostels all over the world, this is the WORST acoustically. That is too bad because of the location and staff both are EXCEPTIONAL. Just had to say it.

Wish we could have provided you a solution to help you sleep better while staying with us. Most guests sleep well with us but for those lighter sleepers we are always happy to provide earplugs or move a guest's room to accommodate them. One of our staff sleeps in noise cancelling headphones when she travels and another listens to her Ipod. We hope you'll try another of our hostels despite your experience here. happy travels.

As per my review of USA Hostels San Francisco, if big corporates pour lots of money into a hostel it ends up looking something like this. Big, well planned, standardised procedures, etc. If that's your thing then this place is perfect for you - if you are looking for somewhere with "character" then this probably isn't right for you.

Seriously good hostel in a great location, staff are amazing and make you feel more than welcome , especially the Aussie!! Fantastic socialising area out front 5*

Unfortunately I checked out two days early due to uncleaness and uncomfort. The rooms had bad odor, the location is horrible, the kitchen and breakfast was a bit filty and un-spacious. Aside from the money convinced, hopefully these concerns are resulted for the next guest.

Pretty good location. It's near all the weird dudes who dress up. I met Batman and he spat on me. I tried to climb the fence to the place next door but the barbed wire cut me lol. The hostel is actually expensive though. You can make your own LA experience at home by just emptying your garbage bin in your living room and inviting that crazy guy who always yells at you when you walk past his house over. How does he even have a house? Is that a government program? I'm going to google it.
