Rude staff, semi clean. No atmosphere of a hostel, but it's not aimed at that. Downtown LA sucks. Don't stay there. Pretty dangerous to be honest. We only stayed there because was close to staples centre, but too dangerous to walk there.
This ia the most obnoxious place you could ever stay. The staff are douche bags. They are old guys that can't leave the party scene. Music pumps non stop 24 hours a day. As loud as a nightclub. Staff play music almost in spite of gusts that would like to sleep. Every morning at 5am guests will return from nightclubs and staff will pump the music to crazy levels. They don't even like it but do it just to be arrogant and obnoxious. The pun crawl gos to pubs where nobody else goes to.
This place is simple, but awesome. No glitz or glamour. But the people are amazing. Met some lifelong friends here. Area is dangerous. Girl held up at gun point when there. Like a lot of America you can't walk places. Cans are cheap though
