Everyone was very friendly, including us in all the activities straight away! The bathrooms were beautifully done, and the kitchen was good. The manager and the rest of the staff were very helpful and ensured we enjoyed our stay, making us feel very welcome. We even returned for a night we enjoyed it that much!
When we arrived at the hostel after a long journey, we were told they didn't have our booking. The woman on the desk was very helpful and sorted us a room for the night. The room smelled odd the moment we walked in, and looked like it needed some TLC. The next morning we were ready to leave after we saw a tramp let himself into the complex using a wire not a keycard. The beds were clean and staff were helpful, but we won't be staying here again I'm afraid.
We booked a private double room, and ended up being transferred across to the Fitzgerald hotel across the road. Our room was really lovely complete with a tv, and was cleaned every day. There was quite a variety for the free breakfast that ran until 10. We were still able to use the excellent kitchen, free computers and the laundry room in the Adelaide so we got the best of both worlds! Staff were good for advice about the area. We really enjoyed our stay and ended up extending our trip!
Great location, 2 minutes walk from Hollywood boulevard but set back enough to avoid the noise. Very good kitchen facilities, but tended to get our own breakfast from the supermarket that was less than 5 minutes walk away. Everybody was very friendly, good hostel for meeting people and getting advice about the area. Our room had no plugs but there were plenty in the common room and other rooms had them. Overall, a good hostel, in fact we are returning on our way back through L.A!
Great location, and although we could understand why some people felt uncomfortable due to the homeless people, the area actually felt pretty safe to us. Room was great, maids are always around so you know it's clean! Although we didn't take part as I was under 21,a lot of the activities such as a club night in Hollywood seemed like a good idea :) free WiFi was a big bonus. TIP if you want to rent a bike go to the one right next to the hostel and tell them you're staying there for a discount!
