Very good location, big, clean rooms and VERY friendly and helpful stuff (especially Ricky!). The hostel is located in Venice beach so it's easy to go around. You can also take the bus. There's no breakfast and the kitchen is kind of small, but they also have big common room, where you can hang out with others. I suggest this hostel to everyone!
The hostel is located in downtown, which is very dirty and dangerous part of the city, full of strange and crazy people. The rooms are very small, the kitchen is very dirty and there's no breakfast (which we were told there is), you can only make yourself pancakes (with an old oil) and therefore the whole hostel smells like burned pancakes! Also the stuff at the reception desk wasn't very friendly.. I was very dissapointed what I got for my money.
VERY friendly and helpful stuff!!
