Fantastic hostel with an incredible location. Bed was very comfy and quiet (didn't squeak as others said they did), and lots of bathrooms which were very clean. Only bad thing was the bath drainage in the room I stayed in which seemed to be blocked so there was dirty, stagnant water when showering. Would definitely return as I didn't get to see half of what the area had to offer. The staff were delightful.

The blinds in the female dorm bathroom are so old and badly broken that the building across the alley can see in when you're using the shower and toilet. Blinds are so cheap! Just buy a new one! Beds comfy and staff lovely. Good location, although told by locals not the safest area.

The staff at this hostel are wonderful. I miss them! The beds are very comfy. The only thing that bothered me was that there is no barrier on the top bunk to stop me rolling off in the night so I didn't sleep to well for fear of falling!

The loveliest thing about this hostel is that the staff all seem to be travellers themselves, so it adds an extra homely element. The beds all have 'privacy compartments' with a panel containing plugs and a shelf. When you're sharing rooms this small feature is very welcomed. You can really relax. Breakfast is fresh and varied, maybe the best of all LA hostels and I stayed in four while in LA.

I have never stayed in such a beautiful, clean hostel in my whole life and I've been travelling for two years.

It fascinates me when I read hostel complaints and the clientele has paid $20. This place cost that and you will get free parking ($15 a night LA) and free coffee in the morning ($4 in LA). If you paid $20 you will probably not have the service, BUT IT'S $20! I found someone sleeping my bed! They gave me another straight away. The management clearly don't care and just let the staff deal with the sub standards.

By the beach. Definitely worth staying here for at least a night if you are on an adventure around LA. Definitely overpriced. They charge you extra when you arrive. It's in the small print so they aren't doing anything wrong legally but travellers are usually on a tight budget so it would be nice to be upfront about costs. The wifi doesn't work. The staff will tell you it's your device. Go to the Coffee Bean on the street corner if you do need wifi. Great walking tour provided.

Amazing hostel; lovely staff, clean, great croissants! Met some lovely people! The beds were quite squeaky but it's a hostel, so not a complaint, but maybe that could be something to update if they choose to do so.

A perfect hostel. There was always someone cleaning the main corridor where all the bathrooms were and the bath mat was always dry! Lots of laughter to be heard. Twice members of staff asked if they could help me with my suitcase. I overslept on checkout day and the manager was very polite and carefree about it. Met a lovely Australian man called Nathan outside and we drank some rum together in the early hours. A very pleasant time, highly recommended, especially as San Francisco is so beautiful

As someone else said, The Bates Motel would be a fare summing up. This hostel is saved by the lovely staff who were always on hand, albeit at the end of the phone. I was in a room with a woman who was a sandwich short of a picnic, but the manager very kindly moved me to a room on my own. It's all rather old and because of that, a bit unclean, but by the time I was leaving and I hadn't been murdered in the shower I had grown to love the place and I'll definitely go back if ever I'm in town.
