As a hotel in 21st century, I surprisingly found out the room has no air-conditioning. Parking downstairs: $25 per night. Parking under Dolby Theatre (almost one block away): $15 per night.

Great location! Rooms were pretty big compared to others I've stayed in, bathroom was clean and had a separate changing area which came in handy. Only downside was the small kitchen but it was usable Overall a good hostel

Great location, friendly staff especially the blonde guy from Chicago at reception (sorry forgot the name) who helped me a number of times with routes around the area. Washrooms aren't in good condition though and the bedrooms are so stuffy and smelly but acceptable I guess for the price you're paying. Would be useful to have phones in the room to call reception as 2 drunken guys entered our room at 5am one night! Location is good and close to the Hollywood sights.

It is a average hostel facilities etc the staff are real good the place is clean and friendly. They have lockers but you have to buy a padlock which I can find annoying as I paid already so I shouldn't have to pay more for some security. I would over all say though you paying for the location as I don't think there are many so central in Hollywood with this price.

Well, the good new here is that the staff was very friendly and acommodating but if we had wanted to stay in a "sweat lodge" this would not have been it! L.A,. temperature was in the 80's and 90's most of the time of our visit and this hostel DOES NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING! We requested another fan but never received it and for some reason, they took out the only chair we had in the room. Will never stay there again!

Hi, Thanks for the feedback. Ceiling fans, and oscillating fans have been installed into all rooms to help with the air flow during the hot season. I have followed up with my staff regarding you request for a another fan, as customer service is very important to us here at Samesun. We currently are renovating our room configuration, and making adjustments to the furniture in all rooms, which may have been the cause for the chair removal. I hope to see your return. Sincerely, Tahj GM

Very well located!!

The staff was awesome. They were very helpful during check in and encouraged us to participate in their activities for the night. Everyone seemed friendly. The only downside was that there was no air conditioning and Los Angeles in September is VERY warm. Other than that it was a great stay.

Please A/C in the room!!

I'm very sorry but you could think that a part of the staff is dishonest against their guests because one guest lost his cellphone and he didn't get real help. He was ensured that a guest found his phone and a member of the staff own it and he has to wait on the reception. But although he calls every day he have to call later on. The staff didn't want to say what really happened with his phone.
