This seemed a pretty nice place, though I was there just 1 night. The only downside was being pretty heavily pressured by the cleaner woman to check out at 10:20 (check out, and my pick up, was 11). To the point where she was trying to strip the sheets off my bed while I was still packing, telling me repeatedly "when you check out you have to take those down too". Not the best final impression!

Amazing things about this place- location, staff (all so helpful and lovely!), security, cleanliness, and they have control of the lights (off 11pm-10am). Not so great- the breakfast was a bit lacking and the rooms are huge, which make the price you're paying not feel like very good value. But the pros outweigh the cons easily so I would definitely go back!

Basically this was a really good hostel. The breakfast was comprehensive (the guy at breakfast was so welcoming), the tours offered were informative and fun (thanks to the intern from Gilbralta!!), the rooms were comfortable and all the facilities were well kept (kitchen, shower room, TV room, pool table). The location is fairly good to the main sites, but great for restaurants, cafés and takeaways. Would recommend to anyone!

This was pretty much all round a good hostel. They had a lot of social events, nice breakfast, good location, secure, sinks in the bedrooms, big kitchen and large seating/TV areas. The floor I was on only had 2 toilets and 2 showers (others were being fixed) but didn't really turn out to be a problem and they were usually clean. Also, a slight warning, they put the prices up quite a lot if they are getting full!

The position of this hostel is great and you can't really fault anything about the place itself. The directions (using Coast Shuttle) really should be updated as no one at the airport had heard of it an I ended having to pay more for another company. Also, the staff were friendly, but not the most helpful. When asked how to get to Hollywood, they basically just said it was really far away.. I had to step in and give the guy some actual info. Don't let that put you off though!

thanks for the feedback. We will look into the shuttle situation with LAX and see which ones they recommend, as there are numerous shuttle companies in LA. safe travels!

Jailhouse Accommodation

This was a brilliant hostel. I was a little worried that it would be purely about the novelty of staying in a converted prison, and the actual facilities would be lacking. But after 4 weeks hosteling around New Zealand, this was probably the best one! It was fun and oddly homely. The hot water bottles were a nice (and personal favourite) touch. The kitchen was well equipped and organised, and the cinema room great. It is a little away from the city, but hey, Tramping is what New Zealand does!

This was a great hostel. The staff were welcoming and the atmosphere of the place was brilliant! There were ideas/maps/leaflets all over the place to help with my time in Singapore, and the coffee and breakfast is as good as everyone says. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
