The hostel is right in the night life area and very close to the cathedral. The only minus is the noise at night by the guests who continue their partying in the kitchen area after 11 pm. The hostel has many activities they host including dinner, sangria party, and bar hopping. Overall good hostel.
The location is great right in the city center by pubs and restaurants in the old city. I stayed at private room which had windows facing the street. The noise level was really bad at night but using earphones and sleeping under white noise cancellation sounds on youtube that problem went away. The staff like Fabio are really helpful and great! There is basicc breakfast in the morning nad nice common area where you can meet people. Overall a good hostel if you can overcome the noise problem.
The place is a model for any hostel! This place is alive in every sense of the word. The crowd is great, the staff is great and the atmosphere is great. The staff encourages every to mingle. More youth oriented though. The only down side is that the internet connection is bad and the computers have english/spanish switching problems. Otherwise, this is by far the best hostel and would stay here at anytime.
The location is great right next to the St Pancreas train station. The hostel is very safe and has good facilities. The atmosphere is not so social and attracts somewhat aloof crowd. The noise level from the street is very annoying and loud. I only stayed here for one night and barely slept. The staff was great though!
The hostel was really nice Sue at the front desk was super helpful, would love to vistit them agan in the future.
Staff was excellent, but I stayed in the private 2 bed. The shared bathroom was dirty, the shower tub was clogged, the room was hot, no air conditioning, had to leave the windows open, but girlfriend and I were bitten my mosquitos even though screens were there. Thbe room dorr nub is hard and can not e turned. The beds were simply nasty, the sheets were stained. For the amount of money paid this was a robbery. Will never stay there again!
What a great hotel to stay in ! The roouim was clean, queit, and very new! Would surely stay in Holiday in Express anytime, very surprised. Although, the location is a bit far to Yosemites, about 2 hours, however worth the good night sleep we got here.
The hostel was nice. The location is right on the hollywood blvd corner, in the center of action. The place has $5 all day parking in the back yard. The staff was really nice. We had a private two bed room, however it was noisy due to the managers dog barking and people talking in the back yard, the front desk staff gladly switched us to the more quiter room on the second floor. The hostel over all is great, and highly recommend it!
All though, the location is great, the place is really old, would rather pay a little more and stay in the hostels next door. Stayed in the private two bed room, the rooms are big, but bathroom is old, and rooms are old. The people staying there were nice. The staff was helpful, a bit unorganized though.

Average hostel. Stayed in a private 1 bed with girlfriend. The location is great, right in the Gaslamp district. The rooms are average. Asked the staff on recommendations on tours, not helpful, but friendly. Its an ok place to stay.
