    Only recommendation—have working fans in the rooms...it can be a little toasty in LA, although it does cool down later at night. Other than that, great experience

    Not too bad. Fan was broken in our room and you are not allowed to open the terrace doors. I had a really bad snorer in my room, slept pretty bad. Liked the location,

    Average hostel, it is clean tho the design and furniture is a bit old. The staff was friendly but I was asked to provide my passport for borrowing the hairdryer ! O well.... Breakfast is free and they offer some basic food like bread and jams etc. location is not very good, it is close to the Pink hotdog tho if u have a bike.

    For the price it's an okay hostel. I personally wouldn't stay there again, it was pretty loud at night due to my room being next to the Tiki Garden (where the parties are), the kitchen area always smelled like gas, staff wasn't really friendly and overall the furniture and everything is pretty old. The breakfast consist of toast, oats, cereals, jam, peanut butter and that's it.

    Traveler beware! The wool was pulled over my eyes from the ratings & pictures of this place. It’s the worst hostel I have ever seen and I have been to several abroad & in the US. It was so awful I actually did not end up staying there and lost $80. When I arrived bed sheets were ruffled, it looked as if someone had just slept in it, I was told the sheets “were just changed”. NO AC in the very small room. Hot/muggy. Filthy premises and bathroom. Don’t stay here. Basically a boys college dorm.
